At the conclusion, on Monday night they presented cheques to the following charities. €500 went to Drive to Survive and the cheque was presented to Tom McGrath. €300 was presented to Kilbehenny and Anglesboro P.T.A.A towards the cost of their annual senior citizens Christmas party.

G.A.A: On Friday night last Galtee Gaels Club na n-Og held their last home blitz of this season, with games against Glanworth at U-8 and U-6. Approximately fifty children were present and after the games both teams and their parents were treated to refreshments. Huge credit is due to all involved for keeping our youth involved in sport. A special thanks must go to the coaches and club officials, including all involved in what was one of our most successful summer camps earlier this year. Of course it’s vital to thank forgotten heroes - the caterers, who always very kindly make and provide the refreshments.
LADIES FOOTBALL: Galtee Gaels ladies football also had their final blitz on Saturday last with the U-8 team beating Fermoy, while the U-10 team easily accounted for Mitchelstown. Mitchelstown beat Galtee Gaels on the score of 2-3 to 2-2 to win the Coughlan Shield in the U-13 game. After the game Rebecca Coughlan presented the shield to the winning Mitchelstown Captain. Also Ballylanders ladies footballers overcame Boherlahan of Tipperary in the first round of the Munster Intermediate Championship and now meet the Cork Champions Glanworth in the Munster semi-final. Galtee Gaels junior “A” footballers had no game in the South semi-final which was fixed for Knocklong on Saturday last. Both teams were on the field but the referee failed to show up due to a mix up in dates. The game has now been re fixed for this Sunday evening at Knocklong with a 5.30pm throw in.
