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......
