Why take it from our fund?2006 i saw comments for the hospital where they were going to build it and such.

John, I will find out when my brother went into Glin. Michael worked in the sewing room. However, I had another brother Paddy also there, and he worked in the boot room. My eldest bro Paddy lives in Ennis, he will fill me in with more information when he visits. I'll keep in touch. Take Care and thanks for your participation. Margaret. ( I know Michael did boxing for Glin, as my Mother had a cutting from the Clare Champion Newspaper. Michael won the fight that day.) Our family are from Clare.

Michael was with me in Glin in the 40s I have a photo of Michael and a group sitting with John Stokes who was helping the boxing team. John lived in Ballybunnion and worked in a drapery shop in the town of Glin, he wrote to me many years after I got out, I still have his letter. Say Hi to Paddy for me Margaret. I will send you a copy of the photo when I get back to Canada in April. John phoned me from San Diego a couple of hours from here and I will have to give him a ring back.
A Mexican, an Arab, and a Yorkshire Lass are in the same bar. When the Mexican finishes his beer, he throws his glass in the air, pulls out his pistol, and shoots the glass to pieces. He says, In Mexico, our glasses are so cheap we don't need to drink with the same one twice. The Arab, obviously impressed by this, drinks non-alcohol beer (cuz he's a Muslin! throws it into the air, pulls out his AK-47, AND SHOOTS THE GLASS TO PIECES. He says, In the Arab world, we have so much sand to make glasses that we don't need to drink with the same one twice either. The Yorkshire Lass, cool as a cucumber, picks up her beer, downs it in one gulp.throws the glass into the air, whips out her 45, and shoots the Mexican and the Arab. Catching her glass, setting it on the bar, and calling for a refillm she says In Yorkshire, we have so many illegal immigrants that we don't have to drink withe the same ones twice.
Hi Margaret, There was a very Famous Irish Boxer called Thornton any relation, >He Must be, look him up. hope all is well with you as well as things can be all considering the shit we all have been subjected to.
