Milford Hospice Harvest Fair: The Milford Hospice 28 Annual Harvest Fair is scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 1st. The Harvest Fair is moving to a new location this year and is taking place at the U.L. Arena. The Harvest Fair Committee once again appeals for your support in donating goods such as clothes, books, toys, bric-a-brac. All goods this year will be checked for quality before being accepted in order to minimise the major costs involved with the disposal of unsalable items. Items for the Harvest Fair will be accepted on the grounds of Milford Care Centre from Monday, August 19 to Thursday, August 29. Thereafter only confectionary will be accepted on the grounds of U.L. on the day of the Harvest Fair. For further details with regards to donating items to the Harvest Fair, please contact the Fundraising Office at 061-485860.

Monaleen National School: Monaleen National School pupils from Senior Infants to Sixth Class return to school on Thursday, August 29 and Junior Infant pupils will start on Friday, August 30th.

Monaleen GAA Notes: Juvenile hurling / football coaching volunteers needed! Our new intake of players (senior infants class and older) will be starting in early September and we would ask for parents to come along and help out whenever possible. No coaching experience necessary as there will be experienced coaches on-hand to guide. Exact commencement dates in September for the new starts will be posted in the coming week on the Monaleen GAA website or send an email to for more details.

Monaleen Road Hurling: The Monaleen road hurling committee recently made a generous donation to the Monaleen Cancer Support Group. The road hurling competition which is now held every year on St Stephen’s day on the local roads was the brainchild of a group of present and past Monaleen GAA Club hurlers as a way of having some festive fun and also as a way of raising some funds for our local community charities. Keep an eye out for details later in the year and make sure to put it into your diaries for Christmas this year. It’s a great way to spend St Stephen’s morning and all for a good cause.
