Ballylooby Duhill

DUHILL COMMUNITY COUNCIL There will be a meeting of Duhill Community Council on this Wednesday, June 20, at 8pm. All are welcome. CHECK OUT THE PAST IN YOUR LOCAL AREA There are over 3600 historic graveyards in Ireland with up to 1400 years of history carved into the headstones that have been placed there over the years. In the past year the ‘Historic Graves Project’ has helped local community groups survey 6734 graves in 79 graveyards, recording not only the names, locations and inscriptions on those headstones, but also recording local stories from local people about their local cemeteries. As part of this exciting project, the Knockmealdown Active steering committee, in partnership with the local communities living along the length of the Knockmealdown mountain range, hopes to train local volunteers on how to record the information contained within their local historic graveyards. Before the group proceeds any further we want to gauge the level of interest from people who might be willing to help with this project. If there is enough interest from local communities, Knockmealdown Active hopes to be in a  position to organise the basic professional training necessary to conduct the survey, and to supply cameras and other specialised recording equipment. If you think you might be interested in this very worthwhile and rewarding exercise please send a text message with your name, contact details and parish area to 086-8119571 and we will contact you as soon as possible. If you want more information about the project, check out historicgraves.ie on the internet.

BRIAN BORUS FOOTBALL: Our u12 County Final will be played Wednesday night in Bansha at 7.30pm. It’s very important that the girls have a good support for the final. Our county semi was played at home in Ballylooby and we had loads of support, which provided great encouragement to the girls!
