The Irish Times swoop in with a late contender for correction of the year

It needed to be said.

LAST SATURDAY, THE Irish Times published an obituary of road bowling champion Mick Barry.

However, they made en error when referring to Bishop John Buckey’s bowling get-up, as he often played alongside Barry.

They said:

Bishop John Buckley of Cork and Ross, an aficionado of the sport, who often played against him in his cassock, said Barry had done for bowling what Christy Ring did for hurling.

But all is not as it seems, as evident in this vivid correction today.


Well we’re glad that’s cleared up then.
