Combo was much as JDP explained but you had to
pass the ball 3 times before scoring.When Johnnies
field was being built on Mai Faulkner actually let
the kids in the area use her huge front garden for
games.Contrast that to a ladies group in the town in the 60s who tried to get football banned on the Mall.
John Joe was a constructor rather than a racer
as he was a little too gangly for the bogeys.
Races were usually held down Staball or Barracks
hill.Was Frank Pelly from Station rd somewhere.I
recall we being envious of his name.
JDP I thought you were a Pearse like Butch.
