Hi Mooncat

Thanks very much for sharing that, I missed that story at the time. A wonderful job done by Mooncoin GAA, fair play, a fitting tribute to Drug Walsh. It's really important to preserve the memories of these legends for future generations. Great to hear that you're happy with the work of Seamus Connolly, I have no doubt that he will deliver a monument to John Joe that we can be very proud of.
