In the July 13 Irish World

The July 13 Irish World


IMPORTANT CORRECTION: In this week’s print edition of The Irish World our story on page 6, Ruislip Gets its own Up for the Match style special we mistakenly referred to Mayo GAA legend, footballer Willie Joe Padden (itself mis-spelled) as “late” and “great”. While he is undoubtedly great, the word “late” should not have been there and we are very happy to report that he is very much alive and well. Apologies to both Paddens, father and son.
