Our best wishes to Jimmy Fogarty, our Club President who will be launching his new book “Hillside Views” on Saturday 13th August in Corcoran’s Lounge & Bar, Two Mile Borris. Jimmy’s 200 page book is a compendium of many stories of both local & other interests & is based on people & places of times past & present. The stories included are on a diverse range of topics & lifestyles from local interest, memories of different stages of life from childhood to adolescence & upwards, profiles of famous parish sports people & others. On a wider sphere are seasonal articles – Christmas, religion, horse racing, hurling, football, some short stories, memories of rural and urban Ireland from a bygone age.

Your support for his new book would be greatly appreciated.
