Bóthar Fadó: Congratulations to Scoil San Isadoir who staged Bóthar Fadó last week in the Parish Hall. The show was divided in to five parts: Tubberadora Fadó, Scoil Fadó, Fadó Fadó, Damhsa Fadó and Paróiste Fadó. It involved a combination of history, dance, music and drama, telling the story of significant events, people and organisations in the parish over the last 150 years. It is safe to say that those lucky enough to have got tickets to see Bothar Fado came away from the show inspired, enthused and proud of the “little village”. DVDs will be available in the coming weeks.
Date for your Diary: The GAA Cul Camp will be held this year from Monday 2nd July to Friday 6th July. Details regarding registration etc will come in the next few weeks. As always new players and volunteers are always welcome to join the club.

Death of John Gleeson: The death occurred at his residence on Monday, 26th March of John Gleeson, Erry, Dualla. He was born in Ballykelly and was son of the late John and Sarah Gleeson (nee Maher). As a man of the land, he was a most progressive farmer with a good work ethic. In his younger days, he wielded to the camán with his parish club and had a keen interest in greyhounds. Throughout his life, he was an avid reader of local and national news. As a father, he was challenging and encouraging to his larger family. His wife Mary (nee O’Reilly) predeceased him in 2006. His remains were removed on Thursday from his son’s Michael’s residence to the Church of Our Lady of Fatima and after Requiem Mass celebrated by Fr. Joe Egan PP, assisted by Fr.

Juvenile GAA: U6 and U10s had training as usual last Saturday morning while the U8s took part in a football blitz in Morris Park where they played three games. Our U16s got off to a bad start in their football campaign where they were beaten by a stronger Gortnahoe. The U14s played Upperchurch Drombane last Saturday morning in Boherlahan and won by a goal and two points in a well contested football match. Meanwhile the U12s had their three teams togged out for a friendly against Lisgoold from Cork who were en route to Semple Stadium last Sunday, we thank them for the games. The Easter GAA Camp began last Tuesday and ran until Thursday. Coaching officer Andy Ryan and his team of coaches were running the camp for the three hours each day. Over eighty of our juveniles enrolled for the camp. Report next week on its success. Congrats to St. Isidores National School, Boherlahan on a truly amazing and educational history of the Parish from many aspects, in their production of Bothar Fado. It showed how steeped our parish is in GAA and the genealogical connections that still remain to the current day.
