I never saw a happier Mammy than Eira Gorman when her eldest lad, Timmy arrived home from Australia recently to surprise her. Well, you did surprise her, Timmy but I’d say it was better than any Christmas present she’s ever received. Tanned and happy out, Timmy says he is going to knuckle down now and get stuck into training for the Championship, after the celebrations of his homecoming……..after many a night celebrating his homecoming……… and soon, Mammy Eira will be heard “Timmy, get your bloody football boots off the bathroom floor, I nearly broke my neck…….”
Birthdays - Happy birthday to Luke Pearse who recently celebrated his 10th birthday recently and to Peter Kavanagh currently living in Co Wexford who celebrated his 75th.
We seem to have a shortage of birthdays and anniversaries this month – is there no one out there who has celebrated a 21st or ‘big birthday’ recently??
To the children of Scoil Mhuire who recently celebrated the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confession.
To Pat O’Neill who has won the coveted “Brave Man of The Year Award” – seems he collected a clatter of rowdy women from the recent ‘Take That’ concert at Croke Park but alas, as much and all he was pleased to accept his award, he was devastated not to receive a Jackie Sandwich this year……….Shame Pat, could we offer you the price of a roll in Fogarty’s Deli…………….
TEE’S OFF to Paddy’s Golfers who are off down the country for their annual summer outing, all well behaved and models of decorum. Oh, that’s another golf society……..

Scoil Mhuire senior Hurling team who gave us the best day ever by winning the school hurling final. They beat off all their opposition and played some excellent hurling against Straffan to clinch the title, winning by a number of goals! The coach Martin Kelleher has given all his time, energy and patience to the team training at the school and he was delighted to be leading the victory parade through the streets of Ballymore that evening. Darragh Kelleher of sixth class was a deserving captain and we may see some of these lads in the near future playing hurling for Kildare.
