After four editions since the new year we say thanks to the man from Knocknacroghery - Robbie Gately who is heading off to sunny Portugal on Erasmus and hope that as he views Ballinasloe and his posting from the rear-view mirror – most of his memories will be good ones.
Huge welcome then for 20 year old Oisin White, Journalism and digital communications student at the University of Limerick, hailing from Quigley’s Point in north Co. Donegal. He pretends to be a quiet shy lad as an only boy but really does enjoy having the craic with others – as the man that has come the farthest on the island to the posting – 4 hours nearly a trip home, he has taken to his role as Reporter with gusto.
A keen soccer player in his teenage years, with some coaching under his belt – he is now more of a fan than participant but likes the sport of badminton in his spare time and an odd visit to the driving range!
We wish them both well!
