|Tossie Harrington, Willie G. Hodgins and Pat Farrelly|
Heritage Sunday in Scurlogstown was an event that marked the centenary of 1916 Rising with readings by Pat Farrelly on the setting up of the Scurlogstown Olympiad in 1969 and its development over the years, also mentioning the importance of culture and heritage and items of local history. The connection between the Tailteann Games at Teltown and how Greek merchants who came to trade in Meath brought the idea back with them was also noted and it would seem that the sporting excellence we witnessed only a few weeks ago owes much to a small Townland between Navan and Kells. Jimmy Peppard read the Proclamation and his sister Cynthia gave a very interesting talk on the meeting between Dermot Mac Murrough and Dearbhla O' Rourke at those very same games. The rest as they say is history. There were other readings as well and music and games. The beautiful vintage Peugeot belongs to Tossie Harrington.
