Clogheen Tidy Towns will have to discuss the future of Tidy Towns in Clogheen following the theft and damage done to hanging baskets on a number of occasions this past few weeks.
A lot of money is spent by tidy towns in flowers each year and are rewarded by increased points in the national competition. We would urge anyone with information as to who was responsible for damaging these flowers to please contact Garda Philip Ryan at 0527465204. It is a shame if tidy towns have to stop their activities. Please help.
Plaque unveiling to Moulsons
Vee Rovers/Clogheen Community Council in association with Gathering Ireland. A plaque will be unveiled to George and Connie Moulson at their home place on Sunday, August 25. They lived in Barrack Hill in 1911. They moved to Grimsby, London, after their father Charles Moulson was killed in action in WW1. He had been a postman in Clogheen for many years until he re-enlisted in 1914. Connie and George went on to play professional football in England with several clubs. They were capped for Ireland a total of eight times between them, George in goal and Connie in defence. John Delaney C.E.O. of the F.A.I. will attend this long awaited event. Members of the Moulson family will also attend from England.
Congratulations to Conor and Eilis Durack on the early arrival of a daughter in Limerick on Tuesday, August 6. Conor is son of Tish and Bernard Durack, Cooldevane, Clogheen. Eilis is daughter of Mairead and Cathal Lynch, Tuam, Co Galway. Conor was an active member of Fr Sheehys G.A.A. prior to his move to Guys Hospital London for further studies. We believe Conor is still having a go at hurling despite his busy schedule. Conor and Eilis returned from London to Ireland to continue their dental practices in Limerick and Cork. We wish them the very best for the future.
Brian Boru’s Ladies Football
Brian Boru’s Ladies Football Club will hold a table quiz on Friday, August 16, in Nedeen’s Bar, Clogheen, at 9pm. Table of four €20. Well done to the Senior team who beat Moyle Rovers in Newcastle last weekend. They will probably be meeting Cahir in the county senior semi-final so the best of luck to them in that game. Congratulations to Linda and Liam Fleming on the birth of their daughter Ruth. They are certainly doing their best for the club. Keep it up!
