Kilcoran Stags

Kilcoran Stags

Congratulations to the Kilcoran Stags Tug o’ War team and their coach Seanie Crotty, who won the Brendan Morrissey Memorial Cup at Cahir Castle on Sunday, October 7. The organisers are very happy with the great support they got on the day! Thanks to the referee and to the women who made and served the sandwiches. We are grateful also to Marie from the Granary for sponsoring the team.

Retirement of Sr. Aine

In recognition of the many years’ service Sr. Aine has given to St. Teresa’s Hospital, Clogheen, the communities of Skeheenarinky and Burncourt will celebrate her retirement with a Mass in Burncourt Community Hall on Friday, October 12, at 8.15pm. Refreshments will be served. All welcome to the celebration.

Skeheenarinky School Parents’ Association

The parents’ association wish to thank all those who contributed so generously to the school’s church gate collection at Ballyporeen last weekend. Thanks also to Fr Joe for his kindness.

National School Football

The national school under ten footballers were in action on Sunday last at the Anglesboro Harvest Fair football blitz. They played four games during the afternoon and won two of them. The team put up a great display of football and it was enjoyed by all. Well done to the young Skeheenarinky players for representing their school so well. (See photo on p27).

Skeheenarinky Community Alert

Despite the name of the committee, Skeheenarinky Community Alert area includes Coolagarranroe, Kiltankin and Drumroe. In the past few weeks there have been a number of suspicious activities: unfamiliar faces and vehicles; three small fires; and two houses that had knocking on doors at 7.40am. The committee is looking at two initiatives. One plan would assist in getting emergency vehicles more quickly to our houses, especially those homes in isolated areas.

The other programme would inform the Gardai and the members of the committee whenever suspicious activity is observed. More information on these programmes to follow.
