From no stranger to Ballyboughal and local enough gentleman Martin Byrne comes this wee gem of a song. St Patricks Day in mind I thought you might you like it.
From Ballyboughal.net, have a very happy St Patricks Day.

A Long Long Way From Ireland, is the first single to be released from the up and coming album of the same name due to hit the record stores and online this year.
The single will not be available for purchase in shops, but will be made available in iTunes and for play on all good radio stations home and abroad.

Anne Gough who lives up the back lane (….just about says you !) is doing a coffee morning for the cancer society on the 27th march from 10.30 to 2.30.
Of note, Anne is not turning her house into a late night wine bar. To clarify, the coffee morning runs 10.30 ante meridiem, or a.m., until 2.30 post meridiem, or p.m.
And the lovely Anne sez she’d be only
delighted if u could come and help the cancer society on this day
Anne also notes:
its tea coffee buns chat get to meet neighbours and friends
Go. Meet. Enjoy. Smile. Happy days. Well done Anne.
Dunno where Anne’s house is ? Up the side of the pub, left hand side, just before the big gap where you can park/ where the honesty bucket veg and fruit stall is.

Just in! The new range of Ballyboughal souvenir concrete dungarees are available to order. Only two available. Don’t miss out!
On a serious note, Joanne and the wee fella had just completed last weeks 5k run in Ballyboughal and then joined the only Pitch and Putt club in the village. This photo was taken just after.
