MURPHY DONATES £8000 TO AISLING RETURN TO IRELAND CHARITY

Leading civil engineering and building contractor J. Murphy & Sons
Limited recently made a donation of £8,000 to the Aisling Return to
Ireland Charity. The sum was raised by company employees and others
who were given the opportunity to own the commemorative “Murphy at
60” book by contributing £30 to the charity – a sum which was
matched by the company.

Man In A Suitcase - Hand luggage only with Aisling the no-frills holiday company

(By Alex McDonnell ) Jim came with us on our last trip to Donegal when he had a surprise encounter with his brother for a few days in Monaghan. This year John had arranged for Jim to stay with his sister in Cavan. On our way to the ferry we picked Jim up from his home in a quiet little street in Cricklewood, a nondescript terrace off the main road where all of the traffic in London seems to be ploughing through on its way to the M1.

Tom Corkery runs the Cork City marathon for Aisling

Tom Corkery ran in the Cork City Marathon in June this year trying to beat or equal his record from 30 years ago. He
narrowly missed this target by only 9 minutes which in itself is some
achievement. Tom was running in aid of Aisling and all the cash raised will go
towards OUR MINIBUS APPEAL. We are some way towards achieving our own record of
£28,000 to buy a brand new bus to give our returning emigrants a bit of comfort
on their way back home. Tom’s efforts and those of the Irish Post weho launched

Among the Wicklow Hills

By Alex McDonnell
We were less than an hour away from Holyhead and in good time to make the ferry. John and Mary and the gang in the other minibus were well behind and would be lucky to get to the ferry on time. These days we only have one minibus and had to borrow another one from Danny Sullivan, the contractor from North London via Kerry, to carry 10 of the 20 returning emigrants and supporters who were making this trip to Wicklow.
