GALTEE MOUNTAIN RESCUE: Once again the South Eastern Mountain Rescue Association (S.E.M.R.A) came to the aid of an injured mountain walker from the Lough Curra area of the Galtee Mountains. The rescue team set up a base near the Claydagh Bridge in the Glen of Aherlow. The man who had a serious lower leg injury was airlifted by helicopter to Waterford Regional Hospital for treatment. Once again, it shows the great work being done by the rescue team.

TIDY TOWNS: Anglesboro and Kilbehenny Communities are busy at the moment with the application date fast approaching. Kilbehenny recently organised a big clean up to co-inside with An Taisce Spring Clean Week which involved the Girl Guides under the leadership of Siobhan Lewis, Veronica Jackson and Paula Delaney. Members of the Community Employment Scheme and local volunteers also took part. This is Kilbehenny’s seventh year in taking part, where they have increased their marks each year. On this Saturday Anglesboro Tidy Towns Group and the Community Council have organised a group who are not travelling with the walkers to paint the outside of the Community Hall. They would like to thank Colours Paint Shop in Mitchelstown for their generous sponsorship toward the project. The last time this was done was about ten years ago. It was a great community occasion similar to the “Meithil” of a bygone ago, where the late Bridie Lane treated everyone to a delicious dinner of bacon and cabbage, dessert and tea in the kitchen of the Hall. All present at the time were delighted with the meal. It will be wonderful to see this tradition repeated on this Saturday – weather permitting. The local community is grateful to all the volunteers and the two Community Employment workers, who are keeping the village and surrounding areas spotless. Indeed the two C.E Workers are to be complimented on the wonderful painting of the interior of the Hall, which they recently completed.
G.A.A: On Thursday night last Galtee Gaels Junior “A” footballers had a one point win over Blackrock in the South Limerick Junior A League. The game was played at Kilfinane.

VOICE OF IRELAND: A huge crowd turned up in Ballylanders on Monday last for a homecoming party for Keith Hanley following his great victory in the voting for the competition on R.T.E 1. Many people expressed that the Gallahue Election Machine has not gone away – a sign of the time when Keith’s Grandfather, the lat Cllr. John Gallahue topped the poll in local elections especially in 1999, when he topped the poll as an Independent. Keith gave a wonderful performance on the live show receiving huge praise from the judges and winning the public vote from a position of third favourite with the bookies
