We know that we can depend on you, the residents of Tarbert, to present your homes and your area in the best possible light when the judging begins in early June. One category which we can, hopefully, make significant improvements in this year, is Sustainable Waste and Resource Management. Everyone can participate in waste prevention in areas such as food, water, energy and transport. Why not begin by supporting the ‘Stop Food Waste’ campaign and by shopping local this Easter week-end. Happy Easter from the Tarbert Tidy Towns Group.

MATCH RESULT: Played in windy Shannon Park, this vital Division 2 clash resulted in a win for St Pat’s Blennervile on a scoreline of Tarbert 1-7 St. Pat’s Blennerville 0-14. St. Pat’s were first on the scoreboard with a free followed by an excellent long range free against the wind by Ger O’Sullivan to level matters. Two further free by St. Pat’s were followed by an excellent executed goal by Tarbert’s John O’Connell to put Tarbert in front. St. Pat’s then took control of the game and led by on a scoreline of 1-2 to 0-10 at half time. Tarbert began the second half a new team and scored three unanswered points to put only one point between the teams. Tarbert then missed some scoreable chances with the Blennerville constantly counter attacking and extended their lead again to four points. A good score by Kieran Deenihan with ten minutes left reduced the margin again to three points and following a counter attach this time from Tarbert Ger O’Sullivan had a goal opportunity blocked on the line. St. Pat’s maintained their four point advantage and were worth winners despite Tarbert’s gallant effort. U-16 Moyvane/Tarbert U-16 team play St Senans in Mountcoal next Monday evening.
