It’s not very often we get a few celebrities spotted around the BallyBoughal village but when we do they are legends and usually in the pub… it’s a howya nod at bar
This champ is a real A lister and not one for starting a rumour but I reckon he’s been following Peters hedge row walks and decided to do one on the QT.
However he didn’t manage to evade our local quick draw selfie McGraw bird watchering local who sez “I was just looking out and at first I thought it was a lost ‘stag’ party but then realised they’re all in France, either that or it’s a brilliant costume”
He reports he called out “Howya Rudolph” and with that Rudi lashed on the sunglasses and ducked into the shade…
He went on to say “Can say I blame him, he’s on holidays, off the clock… but no doubt he’ll end up in the left side of O’Conners later.

Pictured above: Peter Donegan, Sean Conville and Kevin Counihan from Ballyboughal just after they crossed the finish line for the Temple Street Childrens Hospital half marathon on the island of Inis Mòr, Aran Islands.
Huge thanks goes out to all of Ballyboughal and the local businesses, groups and associations who helped and supported.
And you. Thank you.

This in from The Louise Lynch who sez :
Trad music every Friday night in the lounge at The village Inn O’Connors pub Ballyboughal from 10pm.
All musicians, singers and spectators welcome. Looking forward to seeing you there.
I much prefer the spectator seats myself, but higher than highly recommended and always great to hear and see a few new voices and musicians.
In the left hand side as you walk into the pub. Down the very back. Enjoy.

This in from The Pamela Dungan who sez:
the current Ballyboughal NS Parents Association is running since October 2015. Every single parent of a child enrolled in Ballyboughal NS is a member of the Parents Association but a small number of parents are elected to form the PA Committee.
The current chairperson is Sarah Maxwell & the secretary is (me) Pamela Dungan. We are basically there to make the school an extra fun & happy place to be! We put a lot of time into organising events such as the Christmas Fair, Easter Hunts, Communion & Confirmation After Parties, Fundraising Events.
We fundraise to raise money for the school e.g. updating computer equipment, new iPads, extra curricular activities, Christmas pantomimes, travel expenses to events & lots more!
We are the structure through which parents in the school can work together for the best education for all children. We work with our principal, Maeve, throughout the school year & we hold meetings with Maeve on a monthly basis, every parent is very welcome to come along to our meetings.
We would love every parent in Ballyboughal to like our Ballyboughal Parents Association Facebook page & support us in every way possible! We put our heart & soul into the PA but can only continue to do what we do for the students with the support of all parents in our lovely community.
Thanks so much, Pam
