At the closing of Dancing at Lughnasa as Michael casts his mind back on that Summer of 1936 he tells us that different kinds of memories come his way. I can identify with that as I cast my mind back on almost 19 years living on the Sallins Road.
My first Summer was ‘98 when the Curragh of Kildare was the song of the day and the night. I recall the collective boys of St Corban’s School singing ‘Lovely Laois’ last Tuesday…….
