Cheers BH.

DM the plan is to have the grave all done by next year as it's Mr. O'Connell's Centenary anniversary as Man Utd captain 1915 and the 80th anniversary of him leading Betis to La Liga 1935.
Here's hoping....

Major feature in today's 'The Irish News' newspaper on page 2 and 3.

All roads lead to Belfast Saturday week....
