keep fit message

At this time of year when thoughts turn to getting yourself fit and taking up some form of exercise……. I came across an article from a Connaught Telegraph, dated 1943. It recounts the story of Anthony O’Connor, who for 47 years as a postman attached to C/bar Post Office, delivered the mail by foot daily from C/bar to Glenisland, which is a distance of 18 miles return. He walked 108 miles a week! And 5,400 miles a year, allowing for a fortnight’s holiday. When he had served 47 years, it was estimated that he had walked 253,000 miles. The article finishes by stating that Anthony is now enjoying his 15th year on pension, had turned 80 and was enjoying the best of health. So no complaining when you fell a few aches!
