Killeaney AFC is organizing a Table Quiz in Knockdown this Friday night March 25th. It is a fundraiser for the club and everybody, whether you are soccer fans or not, is invited to put forward a team as the questions are aimed at both the young and the older. It begins about 9.30 pm. These are always enjoyable occasions.

The Ballyhahill/Loughill ICA ladies are practicing like mad for the federation final of the drama competition in the Woodlands in Adare next Tuesday night at 8pm. This event is also open to the public whether you are an ICA fan or not. Male and female, young and old are invited to attend and enjoy the night.

I have been away for a few days – in Cheltenham if you don’t mind – so I have not caught up on home news. It was a learning experience to attend Cheltenham. I had not realized how seriously people took the whole horse and racing business. I was more interested in seeing another part of the world and admiring the lovely scenery and learning about the area! So I took advantage of my days there to visit Bath, which is a world heritage town near Bristol where we stayed. I also did a tourist trail around Bristol. I was very impressed with the friendliness of everybody that I met and these little trips gave me more satisfaction than losing my money in Cheltenham! However the racing fans had a great time and some came home with more money than they had going out. That is what I call good luck.

I must send get well wishes to my father Paddy Faley who is being treated for a mild bit of pneumonia at the moment but the good news is that he is doing very well. I am thinking too of Mary Flavin who is being well cared for by Carina and all the family.
