RAMBLING HOUSE: The Rockhill Bruree Sportsfield Development committee will hold a traditional Irish rambling house on this Friday, April 5th, starting at 8.00 pm in Bruree Community Centre. There will be excellent entertainment from local and visiting entertainers and all are welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The song says that “if they found a hat of his convenient to the door, the more they put in, the better would the music be!” No hat - but a bucket “convenient to” the door and donations will be greatly appreciated. Tea will be served and there will be a raffle on the night.
GAA: Cycle/Walk/Run: Bruree GAA will hold a fun cycle/walk/run on Sunday, April 28th, to raise funds for the Senior and Juvenile Clubs. The emphasis will be on the fun and family element of the day and everyone is welcome to participate. The route will start at the sportsfield and will head on a circular route via the Pump Cross, Knockmore, Dromacommer, Clonbrien, the Forge Cross and Clogher back to the sportsfield. This is about 10k and the walkers and runners/joggers will complete one circuit with the cyclists completing two. Participants can supports the fundraising in one of two ways - by filling a sponsorship card or by paying a participation fee on the day. Sponsorship cards will be distributed to all club members and players. Anyone else wishing to secure sponsorship can obtain a card from Johnny Wall (087)1264592.

We had the County finals of the Under 14 talent competition and we were represented by Julianne, Cathal and Frankie Barrington, John Sheehan, Kate Frawley and Sam Williams - a fine collection of musicians. Following a great nights entertainment we were placed third. Many thanks to Maggie O’Shea for her time and caprisuns! Kate Frawley represented us in the Under 12 cycling in Mungret and came in second, well done Kate. Our thanks to Owen Tobin for his involvement with the cycling. Then it was over to Askeaton to the modern dance competition, where Frankie, William, Sebastian, Sean and Matthew wowed us with their dance routine. The boys were delighted to bring home silver. Their months of after-school training paid off, our thanks to Margie for her time and hairdressing skills. The boys were a credit to her.
