BALLYBROWN JOURNAL: The fifteenth edition of the Ballybrown Parish Journal will be launched by Fr. Eamonn Fitzgibbon on Monday night next November 30th in the Ballybrown GAA Clubhouse at 9.00pm. This is an eagerly awaited local publication each year and we are hoping for a big attendance. The Journal which still just costs €10 will be for sale on the night and will be available from Tuesday December 1st at Martin Hayes’s shop in Tervoe and from Centra in Clarina. There will surely be some item of interest in the 160 plus pages and will be a welcome present for our exiles over the Christmas Holidays. The Ballybrown Pioneer Association would like to thank the Journal Editorial Committee, Tom Donovan, Des Fitzgerald, Michael McNamara, Carl Musgrave Martin Hayes and Willie Ryan for another job well done. Thanks also to Jim O’Farrell for his beautiful painting on the front cover, I wonder can you guess what it is this year? A big thank you also goes to our Advertisers for their financial assistance and we ask you to support all these local business people where possible. Thanks also to the Ballybrown GAA Club for the use of their premises. All that remains is for to extend a big invitation to all and we hope to see you on Monday night. Enjoy a cup of tea and a chat. Remember ” Christmas in Ballybrown would not be the same without the Journal”. Thank you.
