The grass wasn't all that was green at Stade Municipal last weekend.

Les Capitales de Quebec wore Celtic green jerseys and the stands were dotted with the fabled colour as the local baseball team helped the Morrin Centre honour the city's Celtic heritage last weekend. The sounds of Celtic music filled the pre-game air Saturday, courtesy of the Matching Keys.

I needed, unfortunately though, to relay to you my keen disappointment in two errors in the article`s title on the passing of François Vincent, a well-known Huron-Wendat cultural leader.
