It is open to all players between the ages of nine and fourteen. Contact your team manager or secretary Aoife Gallahue at (087) 9026736. The cost of the bus and admission to the game is €10. The match will start at 7pm.
WALKING: Anglesboro Walking group will meet up in Lisvernane village at 7.30pm. They will walk “The Dolmen Loop”. It is a two and a half hour strenuous walk and will be led by Aidan and Claire Maunsell. Kilbehenny Walkers will head to Galbally on this Thursday night to walk the loop around Darby’s Bed.
TIDY TOWNS: On last Saturday morning twenty four people turned up to paint the outside of Anglesboro Community Centre. The first painters clocked in at 7.30am! The excellent choice of colours of modern neutral tones is more in fitting with the 2013 colour pallet. The last time the Hall was painted was ten years ago. Thankfully the threatened torrential rains forecast for Saturday evening never arrived. It was a wonderful community event with the frying pan out at the early hours also to feed the hungry mob. Porridge and fresh oranges were abandoned for a greasy fry and the cholesterol gauge was well out of the way for the day. While the work has yet to be completed the hall is looking very well.
R.I.P: Sincere sympathy to Ina O’Sullivan of Kilbehenny village on the recent death of her sister Teresa White. Teresa moved to Ballygiblin in recent years. It will be recalled by older members of the parish that she first came to the area in the 1950’s as housekeeper to her brother, the late Fr. William White. He was a curate in the parish for some years in the late 50’s and early 60’s. Ar deis Lamh De go raibh a h-anam delis.
