You know Ballyboughal Rangers GFC are in the Junior Championship Finals this Sunday 4th October…. the first time since 1967
Well I got to thinking about those that maybe couldn’t make it to the match. Maybe you live abroad or are too far away… maybe the wife [for example 😉 ] is staying at home to mind the new borns or Auntie Molloy is just out of hospital and can’t go…. Whatever the case maybe, I think I’ve got the ideal solution for you.
Ballyboughal will be live texting commentary on the match to your computer screen.
Sounds funny if you’ve never heard of it before but it works… If )
It all works through a piece of kit called twitter…
What is twitter…?
it’s very simply a text message sent from a phone to a computer screen.
How do you follow the commentary…?
if you click here www.twitter.com/ballyboughal you will see all of the updates appear live every time you refresh the page – to see an update sent.
Make life a little easier…?
If however you register on twitter [to do so – click here] or you are registered already… then you can reply to the texts [known as tweets] that appear on screen as long as you start each sentence with @ballyboughal – then they will be texted to me. You must also follow @ballyboughal twitter to see messages we have written.
Make Life easier again…?

What made me want to do this…. well how about a Ballyboughal man in Australia who sent me this email. Hello to Christopher O’Brian in Queensland 🙂 who can’t [obviously 😆 ] be at the match – here’s what Chris had to say…. His nephew Eoin will be playing on Sunday.
