Willie Smyth is our special guest on Thursday, March 24. He will give a talk on Griffith’s Valuation and discuss local townlands in the 1850’s. Griffith was responsible for the general valuation of rateable property in mid 19th century Ireland. The associated ordnance survey maps record the exact location of every house and farm boundary in the country. Griffith’s Valuation is a valuable resource for anyone interested in genealogical research. As this is an Open Night a cordial invitation is issued to all at 8.30p.m in Kilcash Community Hall.
KPlan - Foroige:
There will be no session in Ferryhouse this Saturday evening for the youth group as Centre is closed for St Patrick’s weekend. Regular session will resume on March 26.
G.A.A: Our Football team made a welcome return to Senior ranks when they took on Killenaule at Fethard. After a rather tentative start the team grew in confidence. They got a boost with a goal before half time. Despite a Killenaule goal after the interval our lads fought back well to earn a draw. (See Report). Next Saturday they will go in search of further points when they oppose Clonmel Og in Monroe at 3pm.
The U/16 “A” Football championship got under way on Saturday, March 12, with a game against Commercials in Clonmel. Even though the boys were training over the last couple of weeks this was their first match. A panel of 22 turned up and so most of the panel got a run during the match. The final score was a Commercials victory by 2-12 to 1-06. However this does not give the full picture as the team were only two points behind in the first half and it was lack of matches and maybe fitness that gave us the final score line.
Team: John Smyth, Eric O’ Shea, Kevin Guiry, Joe O’Neill, Paul Maher, Tadgh Lonergan 0-1 Martin Gibbs, Eoin Kehoe 0-2, David Smyth, Sean Ryan, Kevin Kirwan 0-3, Niall Butler, Paudie Donovan 1-0, Edward Ahearne and Conor O’Farrell.
SUBS: Brendan Martin, Kevin Kehoe, Niall Murphy, Aaron Larkin, Shane Brunnock, Eoghan Kelly.
This group has Moyle Rovers, Cahir, Ardfinnan and the Swan to play in the weeks ahead so it is all to play for.
U/8 Training on Saturdays for the moment at 2pm. We will train one other night per week later in the spring. See website for some useful information at www.kilsheelankilcash.tipperary.gaa.ie
