Football - Saturday night took us to New Inn where we played the Rockwell/Rosegreen combination in Round 3 of the Under 21 B football competition. After a slow start we trailed 0-5 to 0-2 at the break and there was no respite in the second half as we lost out on a final scoreline of 0-12 to 0-5. This weekend we have a bye before we play Emly/ Treacys in round 5. On Sunday our senior footballers had better luck with a one point win over Killenaule in Round 2 of the County adult league.
Championship Groups - Recently the draws were made for the new look county senior football championship and we find ourselves in a group with Clonmel Commercials, Éire Óg Anacarty, Clonmel Óg and Cahir. In the intermediate hurling draw we were pitted against Ballinahinch, Newport, Gortnahoe-Glengoole and Rockwell Rovers. In both competitions the top two teams in each group will progress to the knock out stages of the county championships.

Fairtrade Fortnight this year is from February 25 to March 10. This reminds us to purchase Fairtrade products when we shop. There is now a wide variety of products to choose from, tea; coffee; bananas ;fruit juices and most of the Cadbury range of chocolate bars. Look for the Fairtrade logo when you shop if only for a bar of chocolate. This will help the small producers in the under developed world to build a livelihood for their families and so take them out of poverty.
Friday is the First Friday of the month, Holy Communion Calls to the housebound as usual. Trocaire Boxes for Lent are at the doors of the church, please take one home.
