Marvellous Marlay is a saintly heaven
MARLAY Park in the sunshine - what a good place to be.
To be out walking among the trees and heading to the coffee shop for a latte and a slice of apple tart.
Kieran Brennan makes the best cup of tea in Rathfarnham. He's been stirring the pot with gusto lately.
Ballinteer St John's had two teams that reached the Dublin Finals of Feile na nGael. Quite an achievement.
One team won, the other lost, but that didn't matter. The smiles of the mentors stayed the same.
All the players skipped for home with praise and encouragement on their head-phones.
And dreaming of emulating Jane Tully in wearing the blue. Just like Fiona Hayes before her.
Or the brilliant minor maestro, Grace O'Shea.
And those that who decorated the All-Ireland road with Stillorgan's Colaiste Iosagain.
This Saturday, St John's host their annual May Festival from 2pm to 6pm at the clubhouse.
There will be fun and games galore. And it's all free. All you need is the air that you breathe. In majestic Marlay.
