CHURCH GATE COLLECTION: The Liam Lynch Memorial Pipe Band would like to thank all who contributed to their church gate collection, which was taken up last weekend. On this weekend Kilbehenny and Anglesboro Pioneers Total Abstinence Association will hold a church gate collection in aid of the senior citizens Christmas party.
THORNY ROSE: A packed Hall in Anglesboro enjoyed a very entertaining “Thorny Rose” competition on Friday night last, the “Roses” were interviewed on stage by excellent Compere John McGrath, who put some very interesting questions to them, the judges Fan Condon, Noreen Quish, Bill Cussen and Celebrity Judge Keith Hanley had a very difficult job, but they came up with a popular choice in “Miss Alabama” who was crowned by last years winner “Miss Fortune” with the Tiara, special guest Keith Hanley had the huge crowd in great form when he sang a few numbers at the interval. Keith’s new single is due out in a few weeks time and we know it will be sensational. Keith Hanley is definitely someone who is going to sell records!
ANGLESBORO HARVEST FAIR: On Sunday it was all hands on deck with a huge workload in preparing the field for the day’s events. Due to the All-Ireland replay, a lot of work was left over from Saturday – still everything was in readiness for the Fair early on Sunday morning. Great interest in the inter-schools matches for the Bridie Lane memorial cup which was won by Anglesboro 5-4 to Kilbehenny 3-4. The Cup was presented by Carmel Quirke. The shield final was won by Ballylanders 1-4 to Galbally 0-3. The highlight of the day was a re-enactment of “A day at the creamery” by Anglesboro Drama Group. For many it was a trip down memory lane to see the old horse drawn cars, tractors, cars etc. complete with churns, this was done as part of the Gathering. As the creamery closed in 1981, it was decided to make that year the theme for the event. In “A reeling in the years” style – a list of all the happenings of 1981 and 2013 were there to remind everyone of a year gone by. A special thanks must go to John and Margaret Ann McGrath for all the trojan work they put into the pageant. John wrote the script and Margaret Ann and himself worked endlessly before the brilliant performance today. Also on the day the junior infants class of 1981 and the junior infants class of 2013 were special guests of the Committee for the day – with just one of the class of 1981 unable to attend, it was a huge success. A class where all members are still in Ireland, none of them had to go away for employment. One interesting pair was Mossy English, who started school in 1981 and his daughter Mary who started school in 2013. The Committee under the guidance of Liam Allen put together a booklet on the life of various creameries around Anglesboro from earliest times. It is a very informative booklet and is on sale locally for just €3.
GAA: Galtee Gaels beat Bruree in the Junior A football South semi final. The score at the end of the game was 2-12 to 1-2. The final is provisionally fixed for next week end. Please contact Club officials for the final details. A special thanks must go to Dan McCarthy and Jack Ryan for the work that they did in preparing the team.
LADIES FOOTBALL: Ballylanders ladies football – which has a big Galtee Gaels ladies contingent are playing in Glanworth in Kildorrery on Saturday next at 3pm.
KILBEHENNY CYCLING CLUB: This week the club enjoyed two club cycles. Wednesday evening start time 6.30pm is just manageable for now and the time will be changing to 6pm shortly as the evenings are getting darker. Last Sunday the B Group had a nice challenging cycling in beautiful mild weather, around the borders of Co. Limerick, taking in the outskirts of Ballylanders, Glenrua, Knockadea and surrounding areas. Each week a club member chooses a weekly route, this is proving to be a success, as members are getting to experience different areas of our locality that maybe committee routes may not have thought off. And this week the route was chosen by our two newest members Rory and Kathleen – the route brought us to visit their home territory, and was excellently marked out along the way. Well done guys. This new concept gives each member a part to play and have a say in cycle routes.
Last weekend saw our neighbours, the Galtee Wheelers run the 4 county challenge cycle. This was a 100km cycle and enjoyed by KCC members, but others felt the 100km distance a little too challenging at the moment. Our B group hopes to improve on distance and hills in the coming year and hopefully will be more prepared for the Galtee Wheeler event next time round.

It takes place in Dan Caseys Bar, Kilbehenny on Saturday October 12. Lovely food will be provided on the night plus music – tickets 15 euro.
