PRESENTATION: Congratulations and well done to the Boland family of Gerah, Anglesboro who presented a cheque to the value of €400 recently to the Cardiology Department of Cork University Hospital (C.U.H). This was raided by the Boland’s from their Christmas lights display at their family home in Gerah. The late Billy Boland built up a huge display of lights over a number of years. It became a hobby and much loved pastime for him. The lights were missing for the last couple of years as Billy fell into poor health. His wife Bridget and family decided to resume the tradition for Christmas 2012. People came from far and wide to see their display. It was a fantastic sight for all to see, especially for the children. It is fair to say everyone is looking forward to seeing the Boland family Christmas light display for many years to come.
G.A.A: Galtee Gaels Junior players came together on last Saturday week to plan for the season ahead, under the new management of Anthony Moloney, with Selectors Seanie Breedy and Mark Leonard. Mark will continue to train the team for the third year in a row. It was also decided to field a junior B team this year under the management of Patrick Cleary. This will require a big commitment to training, as numbers re very tight, making it very difficult to field tow adult teams. The Club will not field an under 21 team so the under 21 players in the Club will play with neighbouring Ballylanders. They will play under the name Shamrocks. The Club announced at a recent meeting that they will again take part in the County Development Draw – formally known as the Mackey Stand Draw. Kieran Walsh will continue as the draw coordinator. The Club is appealing for new promoters and members to join the draw. It costs €10 per month, €100 for a full year, which works out at just €2 per week. There are many valuable prizes with 1st prize every month of €15000. It is the main fundraiser for the Club every. Your support for the Club throughout the draw would be very much appreciated. Contact any member of the Club if you wish to join. The Club will also run a draw amongst the members for five prizes of €100. Each of these was drawn at the Club meeting on Wednesday night last. The winners were Henry Connelly, Timmy Breedy, Noel and Karen Condon, Sean Lane and Anthony Moloney. Congratulations to all.
