As I was leaving my little corner of West Cork on Thursday, it was clear that the support for Castlehaven GAA had gone up a notch. Even since my first posting about this upcoming event was posted on Tuesday, additional flags, boards and bunting had gone up.
Ten out of ten for originality must go to the folks of Union Hall where, much to the relief of the government decision makers, no-one will be allowed to use plastic carrier bags (for the time being anyway). It appears that the entire village supply of these blue and white striped plastic vests have been put to better use as bunting.
Now that the rugby hopes are over, why not show appreciation to these ardent supporters by giving the match a watch on Sunday afternoon, online on TG4 Gaelic TV.
Sorry, you won't have a clue with the commentary but the language of winning is understood by all. Let's will Castlehaven to win so that it will make all of their visual support worthwhile.
Next week, shoppers in Union Hall will be doing their bit for recycling by using second-hand carrier bags.
Post match PS
Maybe shoppers in Union Hall will be asking for brown paper bags instead.
Bad luck Haven.
