Our Harvest Fair will take place on Sunday, September 16. Full details of all competitions are available on our Facebook page. For a schedule of the categories please call 6133187 or 6133270 and we will provide you with same. There are a number of children’s competitions and perhaps they would enjoy preparing their entries during the holidays.


It was a disappointing week for our minor players in both codes. In hurling they lost to St Mary’s and in the South Final the footballers were comprehensively beaten by Commercials. In their second game of the championship the Junior Hurling team were victorious over Newcastle in Goatenbridge last Sunday.

The Golden Goal in the Leinster Final was scored in the 35th minute. We congratulate our recent winners Meadhbh Freaney and Michael Dempsey Railway Cottages. This week the competition will be based on the Limerick V Kilkenny match in Thurles.

The U/12 Blue team’s latest outing was against Clerihan when they were beaten by a very strong team. While the better side won on the day, our players are better than they showed on the day, and can pick themselves up from this defeat.

The Summer Camp will take place this week in the sportsfield and hopefully the weather will be kind and all the young boys and girls will have an enjoyable week.


Thank you to everyone who supported the recent 10Km fundraiser which raised a total of €1,222 for the Centre. Congratulations to all of the runners who undertook the arduous task of completing the 10Km route especially during the strenuous training sessions. A very big thank you to everyone who supported the Scrap Metal collection, to those who brought their scrap metal and unwanted clothes to the Centre, to everyone who helped out on the day including those who provided refreshments and especially to Michael Delany who provided a collection service. Total funds raised on the day amounted to €2,233. This has been divided among the Scouts, Kilcash Community Centre, Killurney Sports Centre and KPLAN Community Centre with the scouts receiving 50% and the remainder divided evenly between the three voluntary groups. Once again thanks to everyone in the community who supported this venture. We would also like to acknowledge the professional assistance and courtesy of Anthony O’Sullivan, Glenconnor, Clonmel who was a pleasure to deal with at all times. We would like to compliment him on the neat and tidy manner in which the field was left after the scrap was removed.


Notes for August Bulletin please by Thursday.


Annual Mass usually held at Burntchurch graveyard will be held this year in the church at 9.30am on Thursday morning (July 26).
