Kilsheelan Kilcash



Thank you to everyone who brought scrap metal to the KPLAN centre on Saturday, we hope your gardens and sheds are now looking much tidier.


Will take place in the KPLAN Community Centre on April 20, questions as always will be easy and suitable for all members of the family.


Spring is in the air, evenings are stretching and we all have our own ‘to do’ lists. None of you will have failed to notice the well presented and cared for environment of our village, some of you may not know that this is largely due to the tireless and constant work of a small number of people in Tidy Towns working on our behalf. Last year Kilsheelan looked a picture to be proud of and we were awarded the Bronze Medal for Best Village. However, this year, age has caught up with some of our members and they are unable to give as much of their time and effort as in previous years. Many of the Tidy Town members are out doing what they can, but we do need more people to come and give some of their valuable time to keeping Kilsheelan and surrounding areas free of litter and generally clean up. If you have an hour to spare come along on Monday nights at 7pm.


Next meeting will take place on Monday next at 8.15pm when we will discuss our Summer activities. Now that there is a nice stretch in the evenings, we invite more walkers to join us on Wednesday evenings for an amble through the woods beginning from the Hall at 7pm.


Our Minor footballers suffered their second defeat of the championship at the hands of Cahir. Best wishes to David, Bill and Adrian in their quest for honours in the U21 Munster Football Final on Wednesday. The U12s were given a once in a lifetime opportunity when they were invited to play hurling on the hallowed turf of Croke Park last week. Munster GAA run a number of these activities and this year Kilsheelan-Kilcash were drawn out of the hat to compete in a hurling blitz. 22 players travelled and they played against Croom of Cork, Portlaw of Waterford and Bride Rovers of Limerick, doing themselves proud, playing in the county colours. It was a terrific day out for these children and the parents who travelled to support them. After the matches they had a tour of the Croke Park Museum. It was wonderful to note that Tadgh Lonergan, who began refereeing duties just a few weeks ago, was also on duty on the day.

We wish the High School well as they play Dingle in the Munster Final next Friday. We have a number of club representatives on the team namely Daire Brennan, Martin Gibbs, Kevin Kehoe, Paul Maher and Brendan Martin.


Congratulations to the beautiful Chloe Sweeney who has been chosen to be Miss University Cork. Chloe is the daughter of Susan Fahy and granddaughter of the late Gertie and Johnny Fahy, and no doubt if Gertie was around, she would proudly claim Chloe has got all her good looks from herself.
