Activities in Community Centre

The Pallaskenry community centre is a hive of activity every night of the week, it would seem some weeks haven’t enough days or hours in them to accomodate every organisation that wants to use it facilities.Do you know that on a Sunday night at the game of progressive 45 you could go home with an extra €200 in your pocket. The cards which are run by the community council as a fund raiser for the upkeep of the centre would be delighted to see new card players supporting the social event Zumba has now taken hold with a large number of participants on Monday nights who have the wish to lose a few pounds and get fitter.Senior citizens meet for a cup of tea and a chat and game of cards on a Tuesday afternoon from 2 to 4pm. Wednesday and Thursday nights see community games activities like Table Tennis, Draughts and Quiz practice. Thursday night is also Yoga night.

On Friday there is Irish dancing and youth club activities. The venue is also used by the local play group from Monday to Friday. The venue is also available for birthday, christening and any other type of party within the limits. For more information contact Michael O Sullivan at 393204

Following on the recent renovations and improvements to the heating system and the insulation to the interior of the building it is now a very cosy and warm environment.

Chiropidist

The chiropidist will be in attendance at the community centre on Tuesday 12th Feb from 12 to 2pm

Copsewood Gaels RFC

U10 Blitz report.

With our first opposition late we only had time for two matches today.

Much improved performance from last year.

First match against Newcastle West was lost 15-10. Copsewood came slow out of the blocks again (must work on that) with light tackling and lack of passing meaning they were 10 down at half time. A much better second half saw improved running with Emily O’mahoney and Eimear Hickey getting their hands on the ball and a great counterattack try run in by Robin Gallagher. The next try saw Nicole Griffin take the ball into contact with the maul driven on by Emily Butler with Ned Quinn breaking free and running in a great try.

The Second match against St Senans was drawn 20-20 in normal time. The first half started where the last match had left off, Sean Harrison making great tackles, Sean O’Mahoney leading turnovers and counter drives with passes outside to Freddie Cullen, Adam Collins and the elusive Robin Gallagher who ran in 2 more tries. A try by Freddie Cullen saw Copsewood 15-5 up at half time, but tiring, and in the second half with the opposition wanting to bring on additional players to make it 10 a side the pitch became crowded hampering Copsewood’s fast counterattacking style. A good try by the excellent Sean O’Mahoney finished Copsewood’s tally for the day.

A much improved performance by Copsewood of which they can be rightly proud.

A big thank you to the parents for their support and especially Mrs Quinn for taking her turn in washing 11 very brown jerseys!

Well done everyone.

Training continues every Sunday morning in Salesians college at 10am, with new boys and girls always welcome for our very much

improving teams, age grades U8, U9, U10, U11 and U13. Thank You.
