Fionnbarra pay respects to Páidí

ON their annual visit to Kerry, Naomh Fionnbarra laid a wreath at the grave of Páidí ó Sé. The honour fell to one of the Cabra club's most respected and longest serving members, Brian Brady.

Some 50 of the Bars made the trip. It was their 18th year doing so. They always get the best of welcomes from their kind hosts and good friends, the Churchill club in Fenit, just outside Tralee.

They spent three enjoyable days in the southwest, touring all around the locality and engaging in the unique Kerry/Dublin banter.

Back home, the club's Sunday carvery is still number one in the Best Food Guide, while the Fionnbarra Lucky Lotto just keeps on hitting the jackpot.

THE Friends of Dublin Hurling folk will be on Walsh Cup patrol in Parnell Park this Friday night (7.30).

Anybody that becomes a member of FODH before the end of January will go into a draw for a free pass to all of Dublin's home league games plus their first championship fixture.

Meanwhile, there's a new contributor attracting the hits on www.fodh.ie with his sharp views on the Dublin hurling scene, 'Tóg go bog é'. He will be a regular columnist. His first offering is calling for the dual problem in Dublin to be sorted once and for all.
