In case you haven’t heard about it already, you’ll be interested to know that the progressive (and oh-so-nearly All-Ireland champions) GAA club in Kiltimagh have organised a very timely pre-championship forum, to be held in the Park Hotel on Saturday 8th May, for which they’ve assembled quite an illustrious cast. Johnno will, of course, be there and so too will Páidí Ó Sé so, with a bit of luck, that spat the two had earlier in the year could get reignited on the night. In case it doesn’t, I see that that combustible Herrin Choker, Brian Talty, is also on the evening’s card, as are ex-Mayo (and Clare, Roscommon and Fermanagh) bainisteoir John Maughan and ex-Galway (and Sligo) boss Peter Forde. The compere for the event is Martin Carney.
That’s a cracking bloody line-up and fair play to the Coillte lads for getting them all together on the one podium. So, if you’ve nothing better to do (or something that could be put off ’till another time) on Saturday week, you could have yourself an entertaining evening at the Park Hotel (which, if I’m not mistaken, is located on the edge of the town out the Swinford road). Throw-in will be at 8 pm and tickets for the event cost €20. Further info on the do is available on the club’s website.
