KILLAHY BUS FOR DUBLIN - Saturday nights in January can be fairly mundane but Saturday 26th 2013 will be always remembered in the Farrell household in Killahy Mullinavat. At around eight thirty on the winning streak programme on RTE 1 there is a part on the show where they draw the names of next week’s participants. Everyone tuning in hopes that someone from their town or parish or someone they might know would be drawn out. Well low and behold the name of Seamus Farrell Killahy,Mullinavat came out and the excitement began. Seamus is the son of Thomas and Breda and brother to John,Pat and Micheal and the happy coincidence is that his father Thomas or Tommy as he is better known appeared on this show a couple of years ago.
So now it is son’s Shamie turn and hopefully he will come back full of riches with cars,holidays and cash on offer we can only hope he will be very lucky. Shamie is a prominent member of Mullinavat Macra and was captain of the Intermediate hurling team in 2011 he also a member of the senior football team. I’m sure the whole parish join’s with me in wishing him the very best of luck the weekend and are hoping that he gets to spin that wheel. The Killahy bus for Dublin will be full just leave enough room for the cheque coming home.
