The annual Aisling tournament for players born in 2002 or later will take place in Cullen on this Saturday with the first games due to commence at 10.30 am. All funds raised will go the Aisling Children’s Fund.
Result from the Tuesday night tournament in Lattin Tennis Club were as follows; Under 11 winners Mark O’Brien and Mary Hennessy, runners-up Hanna Kate Heffernan and Martin Dillon; Under 14 winners Darragh Long and Angela Heffernan, runners-up Liam Ryan and Cora Howe; Under 18 winners Mairead O’Connor and Shane McGrath, runners-up Luke Ashmore and Quetin.
A disappointing start to the new season for the Cullen-Lattin B team as they went down by 2 – 1 to Dulla in the opening game of the Fourth Division Shield in Aisling Park, Cullen last Sunday. All the goals came from the penalty spot with Richard Hennessy on the score sheet twice for the visitors, while Barry O’Dwyer got one back for the home team. A big improvement on all fronts will be required if this team is going to make an impression in the weeks ahead.
All are welcome to the Shronell-based Kids Ark pre-school, which will have an open day on Saturday, August 27 from 3pm to 4 pm.
Knockfierna Heritage Society presents an evening of gramophone music on Wednesday, August 24, at 8 pm in the Rambling House, Knockfierna. Hear the songs of John McCormack, Christy Lynch, Delia Murphy and many more. Admission is free.
MULCAIR ARTS OPEN NIGHT
The first Mulcair Arts Open Night is a free event taking place in the Millennium Centre, Caherconlish on Thursday, September 8, from 7pm to 10p.m. Organised by Mulcair Arts Network, this event aims to raise awareness of creative activities in the Mulcair region which you can join. So if you ever wanted to join a choir, or a drama group, do some art classes, learn to dance, write your story or even start a film club, this showcase event is the place for you.
Mulcair Arts Network is made up of local people from the north eastern region of the Ballyhoura area and is part of the Ballyhoura Arts Network project which is supported by Ballyhoura Development Limited through the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013.

And if there is something which you’d love to see happening in the region then please share your idea with us and on the night they’ll be an opportunity for other people to get involved too.
It is hoped that the event will help to highlight the amazing diversity of talent and creativity in the region and enable people to find out what is going on and to encourage them to have a go for themselves. The network will host a meeting on Thursday, September 1st at 8p.m. in the Millennium Centre, Caherconllish to finalise preparations.

On Monday, August 15, we played Rockwell Rovers in a West Semi Final and unfortunately we were beaten by a stronger side.

Thanks to Micheal, Roger and Mick. Thankfully with the new system in for U12s we now move down a level and are still in the competition and have another game. The players were as follows: Jack Cunningham, Ben Quinn, Connie O’Halloran, Danny Cunningham, Brendan O’Donoghue, Ml Sean Nash, Sean Landers, Timmy Corcoran, James Doherty, Arthur Moore, Tadhg Hayes, Mark O’Dwyer, Niall Carew and Liam Ryan.
