GAA.: At a recent meeting of Galtee Gaels G.A.A Club an appeal was made for supporters of the Club to join the Mackey Stand draw. In doing so, you will be supporting the Club in their very valuable work in the parish as they put every player in the area through their paces. Remember it costs €1000 to insure each adult team for the year. As the Club receives 50% commission on the draw, it takes twenty members to pay insurance for each team as well as the high running costs, the Club incurs such as grass cutting, E.S.B and general maintenance. This year due to the very wet year, we just had the playing surface need a lot of extra maintenance, which will prove expensive, but will be very necessary for the future of the playing surface. The Club is earnestly seeking your support for the draw. It works out at just €2 each week €100 for the year, with a chance of €15000 first prize every month. If you wish to join please contact any Club member or draw coordinator Kieran Walsh on (087) 9044463 or Treasurer Tom Kearney on (025) 84213.

JOHN LONERGAN: A large crowd turned up at Anglesboro Community Hall on Monday night last for a talk given by Former Governor of Mountjoy prison John Lonergan. John’s speech was entitled “Parenting – the challenges and rewards”. The talk was inspirational to say the least. Everybody present was delighted to have listened to a wonderful speech. Many of the great points he made on the night was that there is no such thing as a “perfect parent”. He said as a parent himself, having met many parents and from his career – he has never met a perfect parent and people striving for perfection should quit right now and focus on the happiness and confidence of their child instead. He said once a week parents should ask themselves “do I have a healthy child” and if the answer is “Yes” they should stop winging! He raised many excellent points about comparing children and the unfairness of it. He spoke about the importance of chatting to children from day one; that in turn will help them to be open about their feelings and feel free to come home with their issues when they are teenagers. The night was organised by Anglesboro National School Parents Association. The funds raised are going towards the running of the school. Light refreshments were served to all at the conclusion and all the parents present chatted and delighted at what they had heard.
