outside my house one of these was hung on the telegraph pole….
I was however looking for some to hang elsewhere and whilst there was a supply brought into the village that source seems to have been exhausted….
Down at the petrol station over the weekend [the mace shop… yes that be the only shop in the village… 😉 as well] there are flags are on sale for five euro which isn’t bad value at all. The ones with the names on them are for the cars.
Outside of that there was also a notice inside the shop for those wishing to get to the match… [bulaidh bós mór] Florie has organised a bus to go from Ballyboughal to Parnell Park and back again. The cost…. €5.
All I can say is [again] well done Florie – if you are looking to get on the bus – simply pop your head into the shop [where the sign is posted], grab Florie’s number, give her a quick call and pop in your fiver… numbers will be limited so I’d book early to avoid disappoinment.
I believe the lads match kicks off at about 4pm as there are a couple of matches on that day in Parnell Park. I’d also reckon the craic and the atmosphere on the bus will be mighty anyway 😆
Before I sign off I got this email in today from Eoin’s uncle Chris who headed back to Australia recently
