THE PUNTER: Tom Scanlon, better known as the Punter, also known as Tommy Bernard by his neighbours passed away on Wednesday, August 11 after a short illness. Tom was born to Jack Scanlon and Han Walshe in 1943 in Leitrim Middle. He was an only child and lived in Leitrim Middle until about ten years ago when he moved to Woodgrove. He was a character in the true sense of the word, and indeed there are not many such people left any more. He loved all sports, player one choice and he loved going to Galway every year and the Curragh and of course the loced a bit of football when he was young and had friends all over the world. Racing was his numbal meetings in Listowel. He was well acquainted with trainers such as Tommy Stack, Jessica Harrington and many others. Tom wrote a bit of poetry and attended Writer’s Week in Listowel. This is one of his poems about the area where he lived called
As my mind rolls back o’er memories track
To the days when we were young
Not a care had we, only wild and free
And many a song was sung.
We’d fish along the riverbank
As the sun was blazing down
And gather round the old big stone
That stood there large and brown.
We’d rest a while and spend an hour
Beneath the Russian’s bridge.
The McGraths, the Moriartys, the Walshes from the hill
Would come down there in the warm air
To laugh and sport their fill.
To Molly Donovan’s we would retire
To pass away the night
With the old gramophone and a game of cards
And many a dacent fight
They are scattered now throughout the land 
And some are in their graves
Others are gone far and wide
Across the Atlantic waves.
But where e’re they are gone
Or what e’re they’ve done
They will always remember back 
To their boyhood days
And their happy ways
Around the Mail Road Cross.
