Fly the flag to support Dubs in Tullamore
THE Dublin Convoy will be heading for Tullamore next Saturday evening. The Dublin v Galway Leinster SHC semi-final could spark the fireworks in Tullamore. The Friends of Dublin Hurling are running buses.
The cost is €10 return. The buses will depart Connolly Station (4.45pm) and the Lucan Spa Hotel (5.15pm).
To book, text 087- 2331983, stating name and preferred pick-up point.
Texts only please. This Thursday, the Friends of Dublin Hurling are giving out free car flags, free car stickers and a free wall poster of the Dublin hurling team outside Parnell Park between 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
Dubs are being urged to fly the Dublin flag on their trip to Tullamore. And those that do so will be in with a chance of a prize.
If your car is spotted in Tullamore next Saturday, and is noted by the FODH folk, you will be in the hat for a prize. The winning car registrations will be displayed on www.fodh.ie next week.

RTÉ’S Anne Cassin can now play handball thanks to Dublin ace, Eoin Kennedy. Eoin was on Capital D last week showing Anne the basics of the game and outlining the background of the sport.
Anne took off her shoes as Eoin put her through her paces in the historic St Michan’s Park alley near the markets area.
The alley is very well maintained. It adds so much to the scenery in the park.In the past, the park was graced by All-Ireland handball champions like the great Rowe brothers, Larry and Gerry.
