    That's a great story in itself, your dad, the war and having to set up home in another country. It would not have been an easy job maintaining the playing surface at Telford Street as the drainage was not so good and it could get quite boggy. Thistle Park always had the best surface. It's an interesting angle on football in Sneck, hope you get some more feedback.

    He just had a great knack of being in the right place at the right time for scoring opportunities. Mind the night he came back from Australia, think he came on as sub, drifted in at the back post to nod home the winner.

    Guy's a football legend and a cracking person as well, so sorry to hear this. RIP Herchie.

    Quite right, Scotchland would be great if it wasn't for the pesky people.

    Devolution is a joke anyway, either you want to take responsibility for your and your family's future or you hand it over to Rees-Mogg, Boris et al.

    Gary Warren told he can leave

    I don't know the rights and wrongs of the discussions, but CaleyD shows a remarkable level of restraint in the face of constant, unprovoked attacks on his character.

    Nunneries of Sneck

    Thanks, I guess there were plenty hot cross buns on the go! The person I am thinking of also went on mission work to Africa, and I think spent a great part of her life there.

    Nunneries of Sneck

    Thanks for this, didn't know about the convent. Yes, Beauly and Kiltarlity have high proportions of 'indigenous' Catholics, and I think it must be down to the clan chief's choices. There used to be nuns that ran a playgroup, Ballifeary way I think. I think the war may well have been a motivation in the case in question: two brothers died. Also, the person was academically gifted, though from a poor family, so career options may have been very limited. I think it was very controversial!

    Nunneries of Sneck

    Does anyone know how common it was for young women in the Highlands to convert to Catholicism and became a nun in the early to mid twentieth century or at any other time? I know of one such case, but not of how it happened or why. Very niche question, I know.🙏
