how are you getting on god bless your memory our morris code was pretty good in those days knocking on the dividing door, your right i had a go at the pipes many years ago i wasn't very good so gave it up , well when i think of all the family's that were reared in pearse tce , i remember going up to paddy o Connors house to play (the canteen managers house) i taught they must be rich it was a mansion inside well to us anyway it seemed like that. not many people in the curragh would no where the tennis court was ,the far grass,crocked tunnels,or indeed the dark plano it was like a giant play ground trying to explain to my kids that we played with a wheel from a push bike and a stick for hours on end they think iam mad , i come across Sean on my travels from time to time and young jas but you remain elusive nice talking to you god bless tommy

Hi Joe, Just come back from being at home, was out with Clare, Sandra and Emer last Friday, Ciaran is still in Germany in the pub not sure where, and Finbar is living with a young lass down around Limerick if you like I can find out their addresses for you. Hope this is of some help.
