When you've got something to celebrate, let it go!!!!

Melissa Fisher, now resident in Ballymore Eustace just couldn't contain her excitement when the Springboks claimed the world title this morning

Melissa Fisher, a native of Johannesburg, South Africa, certainly celebrated today – and the village of Ballymore Eustace with her – when South Africa defeated England in the World Cup Rugby Championship Final.

Melissa who lives with her husband Kevin and family at Bishophill, Ballymore Eustace did a victory dance at the Square (above) underneath the South African flag (flags courtesy of Christy Dennison).

“I am on such a high” she said “And I'm going to mass dolled up in my costume too!” (A non conventional look for Melisaa, who is a member of the church choir).

“The neighbors and everyone in the village had such a laugh today – they made me feel like I’m surrounded by family!”

We expect the celebrations will continue......
