Our Friday Favourite this week concerns the Castleisland AFC 1988 School-boys’ team. They were pictured in the ‘Canon’s Field’ with coach, Georgie O’Callaghan and Canon Michael O’Herlihy,PP before the club’s 15th annual trip to Manchester in August of that year. See how many you can name. We have all the names and will include them after the weekend and after your memory test. Thank you to all who responded to last week’s 1983 ‘First Day at School’ pic.
