Film and Radio Star in Naas

Mr. George Formby, the well-known film and radio entertainer, with his wife, visited Naas on Thursday, where, at Lawlor’s hotel, he had a busy time giving his autograph. He recalled that 30 years ago, when apprenticed as a jockey at the Curragh he walked in a downpour of rain from Newbridge to Naas.
