That's it , Jean - it was appendicitis. I remember now my mother say this to a neighbour.and both she and the neighbour crying. It seems to me now as I look back on the event that there was a very deep snd widespread grief over the chil's passing - and why wouldn't there be. It was particularly tragic in that no other children were born to Gussie Wynne and his good wife. Do you remember Gussie at the big matches in McHale Park and him taking photos of the crowd. We'd all be up to Wynnes afterwards trying to find our faces in the crowd in the photos that were put in the display box on the (Munster and Leinster) bank side of the shop. Getting your face on one of Gussie's photos was as good as being on TV today!
