The day Bath turned green…

Green Bath, in soapy water, needing a wash, drowned out, keeping it clean, scrubbing up, pulling the plug….these were all puns circulating on e-mail in the months of January and February 2008, when the South of England Northern Ireland Supporters Club decided to embark on the historic Georgian city of Bath.

Thirsty Thursdays: The George Best Bar, Bled, Slovenia

It all became a bit of a dream, and a rollercoaster ride which carries on forever. Who provides me with these memories and this sort of inspiration?

I first met Sammy G (Sam Gordon) back in 2006 at the SOE NISC meeting in Bristol. He came with his son, Chris and is an ex Belfast man now living in Weston Super Mare.

WAGM = Weymouth Annual Green Meeting (December 2006)

December 2006 came round rather quickly and suddenly the South of England Northern Ireland Supporters Club were a year old, and as with a tradition that began a year earlier, we were off to Weymouth again, for what will forever be known as our WAGM (Weymouth Annual Green Meeting).
