Bring On The Conker Championships


After a different week of sorts last week [and today 😉 ]  Last Friday saw Ballybougals first poker classic take place in the old school hall.

With very special thanks to the people I share this small village with €827 was raised on the night for the Niall Mellon Township Trust. I really am so appreciative, sincerely for this support. Thank you 🙂
That said… I have now in my account €2380 [plus €50 of a cheque]. And whilst theres another few bob still to come in… I’m still well short by over €2,000.
Last year I and ‘her indoors’ paid almost the full €5,000 and the year before too. I’ve kept in very close contact with the Niall Mellon Township regarding where my account stands and whilst I yesterday was very much reassured there is a place for me there and to take my time… time is still looming and I guess I have a decision to make….. ?
Personally, its been an unusual sort of a year this year with the odd jester thrown in simply to make life more interesting 🙄 [you know yourself… 😉 ] and I have chosen to take until after this weekend down in Freshford at The Conker Championships before I make any sort of decision. I might even drop by and see my good friend Pat
For the moment wish me luck and lets see how I get on in Kilkenny 😉

i’ll do anything for charity #1

I’m trying to get to south africa with the Niall Mellon Township for the 3rd year in a row. I need to raise €5,000. Sounds like a lot but it’s not when you get lots of small amounts…

I’ve a couple of ideas in the pipeline….

My first is this. It’ll make you smile. You leave a comment. Donate a small amount of pocket money. Nothing too big…. and then have a good mick take at my expense. Easy!!

The minimum is €2 [two yo-yo’s] – it says €20 – but just delete that….. and have a bit of craic!!

Go on this picture is ample ammunition… g’wan ahead and knock yourself out  😆 Donate online here. If you don’t want to see my hairy white legs – then click here and put your name down for a few bob. Got a better idea? just contact me 😯

.....gimme some yo yo's !!
