Congratulations to Paul O’Connell, Will Whelan, Joe Costelloe and Brian Quigley who all put in huge efforts in their home race in Kilmallock, the club are extremely proud of all four members. Will was placed an excellent 6th in the A3 with Paul coming in just behind him in the main bunch sprint, both lads put in big turns on the front yesterday. Brian was a brilliant 5th in the A4 race with Joe coming in with the second bunch in the A4 race also. The form is looking good for Charleville next weekend.
We would like to thank Colaiste Iosaef Secondary School which was the headquarters for the day and with the fantastic help of Dermot Doona, who was on hand on Saturday evening and all day Sunday to help us out, the Headquarters ran to perfection so thank you Dermot. Early on Sunday morning we once again saw the ladies who without them we would all starve and dehydrate on the day. The ladies are exceptional with their expertise on how to organise, prepare and serve all the refreshments on a day which surely saw 400 people converge on them but once again they done us proud, thank you so much. To our club members who lined up in force for the duties of registration, marshalling, etc, everyone of you cannot be thanked enough and the enthusiasm you showed on the day was exceptional and well commented on, all good comments I hasten to add!
We would also like to thank Brian Jordan, Chief Commissaire and our two other Commissaire, Dan Curtin and Mick Twomey for an excellent job done.
SUPPORTING LOCAL CHARITIES: And with all of this going on our members were able to find time to support the Cliona Ring Foudation Cycle on Saturday and also the St. Josephs Cycle on Sunday so a massive well done to all who took part in those two events. TRAINING: Our Sunday morning spins continue to leave the old Neodata carpark at the top of the town at 9am on Sunday mornings with our Wednesday evening spin leaving the same spot at 7pm. As the nights draw in please make sure to have hi-viz jacket with you and your lights on the bike as a bad evening can turn dark very quickly at this time of the year.
The club extends its very best wishes to all our members who will take part in the Charleville 2 Day Road Race next weekend, keep her lit lads and the very best of luck. Check out our website at www.kilmallockcyclingclub.com or find us on Facebook for more information.
FRIAR’S GATE THEATRE: Intriguing Entertainment with The Gallant John Joe. On Friday September 6, Friars’ Gate host Tom McIntyre’s The Gallant John Joe starring Sean Ahern and directed by Liam Howard. John-Joe Concannon’s soliloquy on his tattered existence, a tour-de-force of story-telling, swinging from the tragic to the richly comic. With the relish of the afflicted he brings them before us, beguiles them - and us, by sheer word-magic. By gesture. By silences that seethe. His melodic ramblings are both instantly recognisable and marvellously strange.
Film screenings - On Wednesday September 11, Friars’ Gate will screen the gloriously enjoyable film Love is all You Need (15A). Pierce Brosnan plays Philip, a widower who is hosting his son’s wedding in Sorrento. Also in attendance is the mother of the bride, Ida. Her husband has left her so she, like Philip, is without a date. As they make the final preparations for their offspring’s nuptials, the flames of love start to catch. The evening will also feature a screening of Vaneer a short film written by Maeve McGrath and starring Aidan Crowe, Emma O’Grady and Margie Nagle. The film which was filled locally tells the story of the return of Francie Vaughan to his halting site in Limerick after a tragic event at a fair. This is the story of the fallout from an unexpected start to married life. Contact Friars’ Gate for details –063-98727.
Art Classes will resume at Friars Gate for beginners and advanced on Tuesday morning and evening for ten weeks. Start date is Tuesday September 24.

KILMALLOCK JUVENILE GAA: U-14 Hurling - Kilmallock v Mungret. We played our final round robin game in the championship on Sunday August 25 at home to Mungret. If we won this match, it would mean that we topped the group.
We played with the wind in the first half and settled very well. We had placed our danger man David Woulfe at the edge of the square, where he tormented the Mungret defence, scoring a couple of cracking goals along with some well taken points. Mungret, as expected came back at us and by half time were only a couple of points down.
We came under a little pressure in the second half but some stern defending, in particular from Andrew Finn and Aidan Enright saw us keep Mungret at bay.
At the other end of the field, Gearóid Barry, who had by now moved to full forward, showed some great skill and tactical nous by adding a cracking goal to our tally. By this stage Mikey Donegan and Liam English had started to dominate at centre field. David Carroll used his pace to counteract any Mungret attacks that came his way. He was ably assisted by Dylan O’ Brien. Some of our players have shown great improvement over the course of this championship. One such player is Joseph O’Donnell. His courage and strength are a great addition to our panel of players. Hopefully some of the rest of our players will step up another 10% for our upcoming semi-final against Patrickswell, where we will all need to be at our best. Dates and times for this game are to follow.
U-16s - The 16s have completed their round of games and have qualified for the shield semi finals in both hurling and football. They are away to Deel Rangers on Wednesday September 11 at 6.45pm.
