Michael was in high spirits following the spectacular event thanks to Fr Michael McGrath, and everyone else that organised the Longford contingent, and buses Kanes and Donnellys, who got us there safe and home in good fashion.

Speaking of the occasion, Croghan says "it was very methodical, and well organised, a great day out for all the family, all held in great spirits."
