Many of Moville’s youngsters have had to go abroad to find work. One such one was Rory Lafferty. He left in late November and got a job out there in a couple of weeks or so. There were already 4 or 5 of his friends already out there in Christchurch, New Zealand.

One of the advantages though was in leaving a Moville about to plunge into a stormy winter and dark nights. Recently he basked in 30 degree heat.


It seems that it is already Christmas in New Zealand as they are 12 hours ahead of us. So, Rory and Cathal Gillespie took the opportunity to have a dip and start Christmas with a swim in the warm water. The picture has been posted on Rory’s Facebook page.

After the swim the lads are now off to bed ready to have their Christmas dinner and another visit to the beach later in the day.

Sounds good!
