Ned Looby R.I.P.

The death occurred recently of Ned Looby, Castlegrace, Clogheen, after an illness. Ned was a frequent visitor to Clogheen and had a quiet friendly word for all he met. His remains were removed from Costigan’s funeral home, Cahir, to Duhill church last Sunday and following requiem mass on Monday he was laid to rest in the local cemetery. We extend our sympathies to his sister Mary, nephews, nieces and all his extended family. May his kind and gentle soul rest in peace.

Deepest Sympathies
Deepest sympathies are extended to Brendan Walsh (Brendan’s Bar) and his family on the recent sudden death of his brother Richard, which occurred at his home in Artane, Dublin. Richard was a detective superintendent with the Gardai. He was predeceased by his wife Mary. To his daughters, son, brothers, grandchildren and his extended family we offer our sympathies. May he rest in peace.

Dog Fouling Must Stop
People are still allowing their dogs to foul the paths in Clogheen. This is a disgusting and dangerous thing. Last week a middle aged woman slipped on a path where dogs had fouled, she didn’t receive serious injuries, we would call on anyone who allow their dog foul the paths to please clean it up before someone is seriously injured. You can pick up pooper scooppers at the post office for free. Please use them

Birthday wishes
Congratulations to Bernie Moore, Bridge St, Clogheen, who celebrated her birthday recently. We wish Bernie many more years of health and happiness.

Vee Rovers F.C.
The under 11s were at home to Peake Villa on Sunday morning. In an evenly contested game a single goal by Conor Flynn was enough to seal victory for the Vee. There was an abundance of skill on show with man of the match performances from Dylan Keating and the visitors keeper.
The under 13s were at home to Clonmel Town B on Saturday morning. A goal in the first minute by Alex Spens gave the home-side the ideal start. A cracker from 25 yards by Shane Crosse saw the home side go to the interval with a 2-1 lead. A dramatic second half saw Town draw level and have a goal correctly disallowed before Darragh Brennan struck the winner for the home side with minutes remaining.
The Juniors were away to Cashel Town in their first game of 2014. Having gone a goal down early on Kevin Murray pulled us back into the game with an equaliser on 22 minutes, but we fell behind again before half-time. Darren Hannigan equalised for the Vee from the spot and a second from Kevin Murray was stil not enough for Rovers to get anything from the match as Cashel hung on for a 4-3 victory.
