UPDATE Thursday 23rd October 2014.
NEWS. A New statue of the great Irish tenor John 'Count' McCormack is to be unveiled in his birthplace Athlone county Westmeath, Friday 25th October. The statue will be located outside the Athlone Civic Centre and Library. (The President of Ireland may be doing the unveiling? That would be marvellous!)
See post 21 for more about the legendary singer.

The First Elvis Presley Festival in Elvis's birthplace, Tupelo Mississippi, August 1999..
There is growing interest in why it was only started in 1999 after more than three decades of inaction by the Tupelo establishment.
I know yours truly had earlier in 1999 asked the then Mayor, Glenn L McCullough "When is Elvis Presley Day in Tupelo?". The telephone went silent.
Need we get Sherlock Holmes on the case?
