The bulls will have a ball...

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA -

They might be ac­cused of mis­lead­ing ad­ver­tis­ing when the or­gan­is­ers of the Lo­cal Bulls cal­en­dar for 2019 start us­ing phrases like ‘taste­ful pho­tog­ra­phy’. But once the ladies have shielded their eyes from the of­fen­sive bits ’n’ pieces on dis­play, ev­ery­one’s go­ing to grab one of these things (cal­en­dars) for 2019.

The idea was as sim­ple as it was brazen. Raise aware­ness about can­cer and men­tal health and, in do­ing so, help fund the work at Pi­eta House and the Mercy Hos­pi­tal by parad­ing 13 strap­ping lo­cal bulls to pa­rade their beef to the heels for a 2019 cal­en­dar, to be launched in all its g(l)ory at the Radis­son Ho­tel in Lit­tle Is­land on Fri­day, Novem­ber 16.

Kieran O’con­nor and Pearse O’neill, two All-ire­land win­ners from the com­mu­nity at the heart of this (Aghada/ White­gate/saleen), fea­ture promi­nently, shall we say.

Tick­ets for the launch night are €20, and, if you can con­jure up a bet­ter ex­cuse to part with twenty quid on the night, you’ve a healthy imag­i­na­tion. It starts at 7.30pm with a pros­ecco re­cep­tion to steel ev­ery­one for the task of choos­ing the hottest bull on the night. If you can’t get there, or are too bash­ful, here’s the bank ac­count to help: TSB, Main Street, Mi­dle­ton;

IBAN IE501PBS99070527890846; BIC IPBSIE2D.
