36TH ANNUAL 
GALTYMORE WALK

36TH ANNUAL 
GALTYMORE WALK

If the weather is a tiny bit cooler on June 16 than it was on the eighth, it will probably be a blessing for those who plan to take part in the 36th Annual Galtymore Walk in aid of Fermoy Branch of MS Ireland. This is our local branch and very deserving of the great support which is always evident on the annual walk from the Black Road. This is always a fun family day and the organisers advise that walkers should be sure to wear sensible footwear and clothing. Official start from top of Black Road around 12 noon although people go on the walk all day. You can donate on the day or why not fill a sponsorship card available from Eleanor on 0862493252.

PARENTS ASSOCIATION THANKS

The sun shone and the atmosphere was terrific as the large group set off on its way up Galtymore last Saturday in aid of the Parents Association. The family walk through the woods and along the lower roads was well supported and was ideal for young children and parents. On behalf of the Parents Association, Chairman Tom Maher would like to thank Kingsyard for the use of their facilities, and the Eco bus for being there with their delicious burgers on offer for hungry walkers. Thanks also to the parents and to all members of the community who either walked, acted as stewards or contributed in any way.

CYCLE IN THE SUN

It was good to see so many Skeheenarinky faces in the crowd at Kilbehenny on Sunday last, both on bikes and just enjoying the spectacle. Three different ‘cycles’ of varying degrees of difficulty meant there was something for everyone - from the semi-professionals who tacked the 80km and 50km routes to the moms, dads and children who cycled the old N8 to Glengarra and back. Kilbehenny Cycling Club would like to thank anyone who contributed in any way to the success of the day which was a fundraiser organised by the Cycling Club for the new Kilbehenny Hall.

COFFEE MORNING AND GALA WEEKEND

Don’t forget the Coffee Morning on June 22 at Galty Cottage. There is also a card game at the school on evening of the 21st, and the Gala Afternoon in the school grounds on the 23rd. All in aid of the Parents Association. Cycle for the School - Watch out for news of a fundraising cycle for Skeheenarinky NS which is scheduled for Sunday, July 21.
