Canada bound

We wish the best of luck to our good neighbour and Bornacoola footballer, David Mulligan, who left yesterday to take up employment in Toronto, Canada. David has been one of the most consistent players on the Bornacoola team for the past few years and I’m sure it wont be long till he is togging out for some team in Toronto. We hope all your dreams come true David.


We send our congratulations to Oliver McGowan, Cloonohill on his recent engagement to Vanessa Gill, Drumlish (sorry about wrong name last week Vanessa I was given the incorrect information). We wish you health and happiness for the future.
