Hi Mike

Sadly I'm not very familiar with this case either (certainly not
nearly as much as with the 1968 one, although I do have the BB
file on my PC and have read through it) The one thing I do know
off-hand is that Hynek seems to have got the date wrong in that
article - only by one day (a bullseye compared to his famous 12-
year date error re the 1968 case in The Hynek UFO Report) but it
might still confuse people searching. The correct date is Aug 24

You've inspired me to take a fresh look at this one, thanks.

BTW this incident was only a few days away from the Donnybrook
CE in the same area, which has always intrigued me.
