Bert Weedon, a British guitarist whose popular instructional manual”Play in a day” taught the instrument to a generation of young hopefuls — young hopefuls named Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, John Lennon and Paul McCartney — died on Friday at his home in Beaconsfield, in the English county of Buckinghamshire. He was 91. “Play in a Day” was first published in 1957, and the advice it contained was equally sober in teaching readers how to hold the instrument and introducing basic chords.

In the local derby on Sunday 22nd, Iorras Aontaithe (B) and Kilmore United played out a 0-0 draw. (Next fixture, away to Charlestown Athletic on Saturday evening the 28th with 6.30pm kick-off)
