GAA News: The Intermediate hurling team were away to Drom/Inch on Sunday and were beaten by a stronger more physical team. However, this was very good preparation for next Sunday’s first championship game in Cashel at 3pm when the opposition will be Ballybacon/Grange. Support would be much appreciated. The minor footballers had a good win over EmlyTreacy’s on Sunda morning in Emly. They play Bansha/Eire Og on Wednesday night next in Lattin at 7pm.
Coffee Morning: A big thank you to everyone who turned out in such large numbers to the club’s coffee morning/cake sale in aid of The Parkinson’s Association of Ireland. Special thanks to all who baked the beautiful cakes, buns, ect. and those who provided the spot prizes. Any fund raising event is only a success when it is supported and it was absolutely heartwarming to see the number of people who came to the hall. The amount collected on the day will be published in next week’s paper, as there are some more donations to come. Guest speaker, Eddie Butler, Treasurer of the Munster Branch, gave a very moving talk on what it is like to suffer from Parkinson’s and also thanked the volunteers who run fund raising events. Eddie was accompanied by Mags Richardson/Ryan from Tipperary and Doon who is a nurse with the Munster Branch Of The Association .
