Our congratulations to club player and current Set dancing sensation John “Barnes” Shanley, on his engagement at the weekend to long time girlfriend Louise Crowe from Dromod. It was proof positive that the Bors are indeed getting very cosmopolitan as hot on the heels of Brian Mallon’s proposal in Rome, John got on the knee in the City of love itself, Paris.
Indeed, whoever is planning the next Ceist Mór will have to really think hard to trump the two lads! In any case, the best of luck to you both and we all hope you have a very happy life together.
