CRECORA CAMOGIE CLUB: For the second week in a row, we are happy to congratulate our young players who are part of the Laurel Hill junior team which reached the All-Ireland Schools final with victory over Lucan of Dublin last weekend. Laurel Hill camogie is riding high at the moment, with its Junior and Senior teams now in the finals. We are delighted that our players are contributing to this success and our girls on this panel are: Aisling & Aoife Coughlan, Aislinn Condon, Dearbhla Egan, Roisin Howard, Orla Ryan and Caoimhe Sheehan.
Well done also to our intermediate team, who got their league campaign off to a winning start away to Tournafulla last Saturday. Crecora got off to a strong start and opened up a good lead early on, but Tournafulla, true to form were not going to give up easily and staged a strong comeback in the second half. However, all the pre-season training paid off and a few late scores sealed victory with a final scoreline of 2-8 to 2-2.
CRECORA NS: is implementing a structured play methodology in its infant classes called ‘Aistear’. We are asking households to donate any unused or surplus toys or board games! Thanking you in advance.
Also, on 27th February we held a very successful open day to familiarise prospective parents with the school and teaching staff. If for any reason a parent was unable to attend on the day, the school would only be too happy to accommodate them on a different date. Simply phone the school on 061-355228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment.
GAA: You may hear reference in the coming season to ‘Kilpeacon’ and ‘Lough na Garra Gales’ GAA teams. Kilpeacon is actually an amalgamation between Crecora-Manister and Fedamore GAA Clubs at U14, U16 and Minor grades. At U21 level we will have our own 12 a side hurling team, but for 15-a-side competition we are joined with Croom in both hurling and football. The team will be called Lough na Garra Gaels (Tory Lake). These teams have all commenced training and the U21 hurlers play Croagh at 4 o’clock this Saturday in Croagh. Please continue to support or join these local teams as you did in the past.

MPCC CREDIT UNION: According to recent Irish research, only one in three Irish adults has made a will. Of the two thirds who haven’t, it is the intention of many to make a will but for various reasons just never get round to making one. It’s constantly being put on the long finger until it’s too late. Now to highlight to its members the importance of making a will, MPCC Credit Union has joined forces with Dorothy Tynan & Co. Solicitors to announce a Will Making & Estate Planning information day for Credit Union members. This free consultation service will take place on Friday, March 8 in the Credit Union’s Dooradoyle office and all members are invited to attend. MPCC Credit Union is a firm believer in looking after the interests of its members by providing them with the best information needed to assist them in planning and managing their financial affairs. This information day is another real benefit of being a member of the Credit Union and will provide members with the opportunity to get free, practical and impartial advice on making a will and hopefully encourage members to get a will made or make changes to an existing will and in turn ease financial and practical issues for family members after they have gone. This consultation is a completely free service and members are under no obligation to make a will
