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
1966.

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.


Regards

Martin
