By Christy Parker There was a warm welcome when a member from the floor informed that provision was now being made for a celebratory party for the Junior Cert students next September. The Parents Council of Pobalscoil na Trionoide are arranging the event in tandem with the Quays nightclub. The celebration will run from 7-11pm in an alcoholfree environment and admittance will be by ticket only. The Quay's management will provide security personnel. It was also noted that the occasion could prove to have been a precedent for similar arrangements depending on its success or otherwise. Chairman Jack Dempsey said it was a significant initiative and offered an opportunity for young people to appreciate that enjoyment need not necessarily be dependent on alcohol. "A lot of thought seems to have gone into it and it's good to see such responsibility," he added. Socially monitored alarms Sergeant Sharkey told the meeting that from June 1st, the government had changed the procedure for processing applications for the supply of socially monitored alarms. He did not have details, but said it seemed future applications would face greater difficulties. Under the previous directive, Youghal had submitted 15 applications with 26 outstanding and to be subsequently submitted. The good news was that the department had asked that these also now be submitted and the total would be considered prior to June 1st. This had been done and hopefully all 41 would be approved. In response to a query from the chairman, he said the alarms themselves were free but there was an annual monitoring cost of about €55/€60 Mr. Dempsey said it could be a difficult cost for some people but at least people were forewarned now. A private company, in conjunction with garda co-operation, would install the alarms. Motoring advice Sergeant Sharkey then read from a Garda circular denoting policing priorities over the June bank holiday. The appraisal however contained some statistics and information with year round relevance. It was noted that one-third of road fatalities concerned pedestrians, thus walkers are advised to wear bright or high visibility clothing on rural roads particularly, while drivers are asked to be alert to unexpected pedestrian traffic. Drivers are also advised to rest when tired and to ensure children are seated in appropriate child or booster seats. Passengers are cautioned to wear seat belts at all times and not to tolerate bad driving or speeding. Motorcyclists Motorcyclists too have high representation on the fatality list, with four having died since mid-April. The sergeant said motorcycle traffic increases over summer months and appealed to riders to avoid speed excessive, riding under influence of drink or drugs and not to ignore fatigue. He said research indicates the majority of motorcycle deaths occur at weekends and during daylight, with 40% of them single vehicle accidents. Further advice to motorcyclists included checking bike thoroughly, being aware of slow moving or stationary vehicles and changes in weather and road surfaces, being visible as possible and not allowing others to dictate one's speed when riding in groups. (It wasn't outlined, but most motorcyclists would also wish that vehicle drivers would be alert to the possible presence of motorcyclist when executing manoeuvres.) Crime figures The sergeant reported that crime figures for the past month were relatively low there were some serious incidents amongst them. There had been four recorded thefts -two from vehicles, including theft of stereo equipment in Foxhole on Sunday May 30th and a wallet from a van in South Main Street on Sunday May 16th. An oil tanks was emptied in Blackwater Heights (May 9th) and an unspecified theft at Lackaroe (May 8th). There were eight recorded public order offence across various parts of town. Four pubs were 'inspected' and found to be in order and on May 28th, an under-age drinking incident was recorded at North Abbey cemetery. A fraudulent cheque was detected in Tallow Street, with a local man suspected and a definite line of inquiry being pursued. Five Five people were detected in possession of drugs and will appear in court in due course. There five drunk-driving cases recorded, all between May 15th -19th. Criminal damage incidents again amounted to five, with a two detected and no apparent logic to any of them. In one incident, a vacant property in Carlton Village was damaged during a drinking expedition. There were two burglaries reported on May 29th, including a Ballymacoda bar in which spirits and cash were taken. The sergeant said the cash till and drink were recovered close to the scene, which "points to a very local job." He added that further burgled property was also recovered from a stashed location in the area. The second break-in was of a house in Rhincrew, in which a back door was left open and an inner door was forced. A wallet with a substantial amount of cash was stolen. Assaults numbered four, two minor relatively, including at the GAA disco the previous weekend. Two more serious assaults, causing harm, occurred , one allegedly on May 17th involving two local youths, One suspect was arrested and a file is being prepared for the DPP. On May 26th, a local young man was seriously injured at Chestnut Drive and four people had subsequently been arrested. On May 31st the main suspect in that case, a 17 year old, was arrested and remanded in custody at Clonmel District Court to Youghal District Court on June 4th. Meanwhile a local man suspected of "a lot of crime" and whom gardai had been seeking, was also arrested on May 31st and would too appear in Youghal court on June 4th. In reply to the floor, the sergeant said most crime incidents in Youghal had a "strong local aspect" to it. Dodgy €50's, boy racers, hot cigarettes... Concern was raised about fraudulent €50 notes. The sergeant said a major counterfeit operation had been raided in recent days in Dublin. He said complaints in Youghal were relatively rare. Advising on what to do should a business detect a forged note, Sergeant Sharkey said it was best to retain the note and ask the individual to wait while the gardai were summonsed. He stressed that anyone could harbour a false note unknowingly and that the gardai would be interested perhaps in trying to trace from where it may have been acquired as against assuming the holder was behaving criminally. Ultimately though, it was felt that the holder's demeanour would prove a good indicator of their position, with guilty individuals more often than not legging it fast! "We shouldn't feel guilty or embarrassed either just because our note is being tested," commented the chairman. Community Alert Treasurer Michael Beecher was perturbed that 'boy racers are starting again for the summer," with tyre marks evident on newly resurfaced roads, suck as Cork Hill. He also wondered if cigarette smuggling was a particular problem in Youghal. Sergeant Sharkey said he hadn't any intelligence that indicated cigarettes were being illegally sold in great volumes in Youghal currently, but information could arrive at any time. As regards boy racing he advised that enforcement was only one deterrent and that speed bumps etc were a viable alternative. He mused that (Cllr) Beecher might wish to raise that at "another forum." A lady from the floor asked how prevalent and successful were drug searches. The sergeant said on average about 30-35 street/car searches were conducted per month. In May, these had resulted in three finds from a total of five. House searches, by contrast, depended on stronger reason for doing so and these measured about three per month. Information came through tip-offs and criminal arrests, amongst other sources and often provided new names to more established identities. The sergeant added that an Garda liked to rotate responsibility for drug crimes amongst the rank and file. A new garda, Aidan D'ardais had now assumed the plainclothes role in Youghal, replacing Garda Ian Brown. Some in attendance has reservations about children acquiring pellet guns from a new shop in town. Sergeant Sharkey said they weren't illegal though he had some concern that a laser facility may be associated with them. He would inquire further into it. The meeting concluded with reference to the group's finances. Mr. Beecher said that following the donation of €50 (genuine one!) to Cumann na Doaine in respect of crime-warning signs, a total of €763.50c. The next annual church gate collection is imminent this summer and meantime the next community alert meeting will be on July 6th at 7.45 pm, Walter Raleigh.

By Christy Parker Those who have contributed in any way to the Emer Casey Foundation's inspiring efforts to combat ovarian/uterine cancer, particularly through early detection, can be immensely proud of the results generated by their efforts. Immediately following the 2010 Emer Case 10k on May 23rd, Professor John O'Leary of the Institute of Molecular Medicine at Trinity College Dublin addressed the participants at the assembly point in Pobalscoil na Trionoide. His message measured that, in truth, breakthroughs of immense importance, magnified by the foundation's links with various international medical research centres, continue to emerge. Professor O'Leary leads the DISCOVARY consortium, which is composed of researchers from several institutions who undertake worldclass research into ovarian and endometrial cancer. DISCOVARY's primary goal is to understand these cancers, develop new early detection methods and design novel treatment options. The Emer Casey Foundation sponsors three Phd fellowships for the consortium and their focus lies in the areas of chemoresistance, cancer stem cells, circulating tumour cells and the body's immune response to cancer. They are Mairead Murphy, Lynda McEvoy and Brendan French and they also addressed the gathering on recent progress in their individual projects. The consortium's overall profile and its considerable achievements can be viewed online at Meanwhile Professor O'Leary and his workers addressed advances made in the past twelve months. A year of great progress The professor began by deliberating on "some very important discoveries and breakthroughs" over the year. He described how an "inflammatory pathway" involved with ovarian cancer had been discovered. The pathway is compiled of a protein called TLR4 and its accompanying adaptor molecule, MyD88. The terms are technical but the research indicated that, "some of the treatments we presently use for people with ovarian cancer may inadvertently activate this pathway," which suggested that such cancer cells that express TLR4 and MyD88 are more likely to be chemoresistant and will behave like cancer stem cells. "That's a major statement," he stressed, adding that, "hospitals involved with the DISCOVARY consortium, are asking their ethics boards if they can start testing for these particular genes or proteins as part of managing the treatment with ovarian cancer patients." Professor O'Leary also told how the fellows are collaborating with the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland (RCSI) and Dublin City University (DCU) in examining the role of platelets in cancer cell metastasis. The process, called 'platelet cloaking,' is "a major step forward in understanding how tumour cells spread in the blood stream." The professor proceeded that the consortium has "engaged a second group in UCD that have discovered a new protein in ovarian cancer called Mad-2. The presence of this "really bad protein" in ovarian cancer sufferers signified a much bleaker outlook. Thanks directly to the Emer Casey Foundation, an important paper on this issue was expected to be published in the coming months. The three students are also commencing research in tandem with colleagues at the Dana Faber Cancer Institute, Harvard University, USA, who approached them and asked for collaboration. This work "will focus on deep analysis of the role of MyD88 in tumour cell chemotherapeutic responses and to carry out live cell imaging of cancer platelet interactions." This collaboration is seen as creating "a dynamic two-way interaction between scientists on both sides of the Atlantic." The three students/Fellows funded to the consortium by the Emer Casey Foundation also addressed the gathering, with each indicating their specific area of research and offering a brief synopsis of their progress. In this instance particularly, much of the terminology used is technical and, frankly, unlikely to convey its immense significance if represented here in full. Briefly, the speakers were represented thus: 1) Lynda McEvoy: deals with "Developing Novel Therapeutic approaches in Chemoresistant Ovarian Cancer Paitents.' Lynda aims to help formulate new ovarian cancer treatments and improve current ones. She is investigating why some ovarian cancer patients, having responded well to initial chemotherapy before relapsing and becoming resistant to treatment. She refers to one possible cause as tumour hypoxia, which is another way of saying 'a reduced level of oxygen in the tumour.' She has investigated the effect of hypoxia on the standard treatment for ovarian cancer, by subjecting the drugs combination cisplatin and taxane to various conditions. Her findings "may provide novel targets for new therapeutic drugs," she says. Her future plans include collaboration with DCU in examining the response of cells taken from a patient's tumour to different concentrations of chemotherapy drugs and different concentrations of oxygen in order to tailor a chemotherapy regime that is suited to a patient's particular tumour." 2) Mairead Murphy: deals with 'Developing and Validating Diagnostic Serum Based Biomarker Panels in Ovarian Cancer.' Mairead's work aims to identify biomarkers associated with ovarian cancer. A biomarker is a substance that provides information about underlying processes within the body. To determine biomarkers she has profiled antibody patterns in the serum of ovarian cancer patients and then compared them to those of healthy volunteers. (Antibodies are proteins found in the blood or body fluid and make up the core of the immune system.) She has identified patterns of some previously identified biomarkers and also potential biomarkers that may be used to detect various ovarian diseases, including cancer. Her task is to define the best possible treatment for ovarian cancer by distinguishing between different ovarian diseases. Through the presence of one sort of antibody (immunoglobulin G) in the blood she can probe the immune repertoire of patients over a period of up to 10 years and thus acquire information on cancer progression. A second type of antibody (immunoglobulin M) may provide an earlier assessment however and the two combined "should provide a greater insight into cancer progression and patient immune response," she concludes. 3) Brendan French: deals with the 'Isolation Characterisation and Silencing of Ovarian Cancer Stem Cells.' Brendan, the latest recruit to the fellowship thanks to the public's financial support, is studying the hypothesis whereby growth and repair of cancer tissue -as with normal tissue- is carried out by stem cells (CSCs). Cancer stem cells are thought to be resistant to therapy and capable of replenishing tumors post-treatment. His project aims to isolate supposed CSCs from ovarian cancer. Once isolated, it is intended to validate these putative CSCs through various hallmarks associated with stem cells, such as chemoresistance, resistance to low oxygen conditions, etc. Once validated as stem cells the project will endeavour to discover what makes the CSC's different to general cancer cells with the intention of identifying ways to differentiate/kill them and so make enhance the success of ovarian cancer treatment. This work is in its early stages but so far has identified and isolated one population of cancer stem cells from one line of ovarian cancer cells. Summary In summary, the Emer Casey Foundation is sponsoring ovarian cancer research in the areas of chemoresistance, cancer stem cells, circulating tumour cells and the body's immune response to cancer. The scientists have already identified a panel of proteins that can be found in the blood of ovarian cancer patients and have developed a nearpatent testing device to assess a patient's response to chemotherapy. They are mow working on new ways to isolate circulating tumour cells in a patient's blood. War Back on the support trenches, so to speak, of the war against ovarian cancer, Professor O'Leary had a stark but inspiring message for the troops assembled before him in Pobalscoil na Trionoide. "One in three of you here will get cancer and two in three of you will work or live with someone who will get it," he said. Yet, "ordinary people are leading the fight against the 'silent killer,'" he stressed. "You are contributing to a body of knowledge searching to establish early detection methods and striving to understand how these tumours can be treated." He proceeded, " Your money is making a major impact on the progress of Irish scientists that is being internationally recognized. That is why the running, walking and weeping you did today is so very important. I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

By Christy Parker Almost 160 years of a bathing tradition came to a sudden halt last week when the town council was instructed to board up access to the '49's swimming area at the foot of the lighthouse. The instruction came from town manager, Patricia Power, on receipt of a risk assessment report she commissioned from the Irish Water Safety Association that deemed the spot unsafe. The decision has caused considerable anger amongst those who use the facility, not alone for its ramifications but also for the total absence of notification that a report had been commissioned at all. Reports findings The safety survey was conducted over two visits last February. Amongst its 24-page report the following concerns were stipulated: the access pathway adjacent to the lighthouse is in poor repair and "could cause trips and falls." It was also deemed unsatisfactory for emergency access; the 'catwalk' approach to the diving board has no handrails and "would be an entrapment area for swimmers if the tide rises"; the diving area is "unsafe" with the diving board (which Youghal Town Council have traditionally installed) considered a risk at three metres above low tide; submerged rocks serve further dangers. The area generally is considered susceptible to "tidal surges." A lack of signage and a need for further lifebuoys, properly located, are also outlined. Additionally the report notes that a closed-off viewing area -that had served as a second access point- is dangerously rusted underneath and needs restoration or demolishing. (This section, along with a second viewing area at Moll Goggin's Corner has been closed for years now and Cork County Council is showing no indication of addressing the issue at all.) Ms Power referred inquiries to the town clerk Liam Ryan, who said the manager commissioned the report following complaints she received. However he did "not have the information" as to the nature and number of complaints and with the town manager not commenting directly, that relevant factor remains a mystery. Perhaps the answer will be sought and provided at some upcoming town council meeting. Meanwhile, given that the town council serviced the area with its diving board, Mr Ryan did not seem overtly enthusiastic with developments. However, on a brighter note he observed that, "now that the issues have been highlighted, we can try to address them." Over protection? While there is a general acceptance that the area held some hazard, support for the closure is pretty thin on the ground. The relatively clandestine manner by which entire episode from survey to report to closure was conducted, accounts in part for people's resentment. Secondly, there is a sense of 'health and safety' losing the run of itself. Especially amongst generations that played hide & seek in deserted building sites, before the culture of 'fall and sue' stepped off some well-gritted disembarking plank from America, there is a growing resentment towards the inexorable sanitisation of life. People, adults, feel they are being treated like cattle -and imbecilic ones at that- with a lack of consultation that is allied to a growing plethora of rules and regulations being imposed on them by distant civil servants. They wonder as to whither went personal responsibility and, by and large, they want it back. Yet authority can claim to be merely responding to the times. For, as the town clerk noted, there is a legal profession willing to accommodate those who will initiate litigation at the drop of a brick, including a judiciary (answering only to itself) that seems to

lean towards such litigants regardless of any trampling on common sense. "Once the report recommended closing access, the manager had really no option but to do so," he states. Criticisms The diving rocks, or '49's,' as the area is known, arose from the establishment of Youghal lighthouse itself, in 1852 "The materials to build it had to be transported by sea and so a landing area was established," says Green Party town councillor Liam Burke, who has bathed in the area for 50 years. Mr Burke argues that there has never been a serious accident at the rocks in living memory. "The lifeboat has never once been summonsed, nor the council sued for injury, "which is more than can be said for the unprotected quay walls and the greater beach area," he adds. He is also critical of the survey being conducted in February and would like a second survey conducted "during maximum usage and in summer conditions." Others dismayed by the issue include Youghal Mayor Sandra McLellan and town and Cork county Cllr Barbara Murray. Both have described the closure as 'health and safety gone mad.' The mayor fears a greater risk will ensue should people be tempted to access the area by other methods, while Cllr Murray angrily demands, "where next are they going to close up a scenic area in a town dependent on tourism?!" Also unhappy amongst the 30 or so regulars who availed of the once male-dominated, sun-trapping idyll is a local lady who had planned to have some of her wedding photos shot there next August. She is reportedly determined that the location will feature in her wedding album! One fears that the new bride may be denied her dream of love on the rocks however.

€100 discount a real incentive to exercise at Aura
Fifty lucky customers at Aura Youghal Leisure Centre are set to save themselves €100 off the cost of annual membership thanks to a special offer which is intended to give a helping hand to those taking up exercise this summer. The summer months are some of the busiest at the leisure centre and Aura is looking forward to surprising a mix of fifty individuals and families taking out annual memberships during the coming weeks. “The first fifty people taking out annual memberships are going to be left with quite a bit of change out of what they were expecting to pay,” explained Tracy Kenneally, Operations Manager at Aura Youghal Leisure Centre. “Anyone taking out individual membership who is counted among the first fifty will only be charged €395, while the cost of family membership for two adults and three children is just €750 for those included,” she added. “Our membership always increases during the summer when the longer evenings give people more time to focus on exercise. A lot of people also come to Aura Youghal to get into shape for their summer holidays and this offer gives them an added incentive to continue exercising all year round,” she continued. “We have had offers like this in previous years and they have always been snapped up. People love a bargain or having the money that they were putting towards the full cost of membership to spend on themselves or on holidays,” she added. Membership at Aura Youghal includes free fitness classes, unlimited gym use, the use of a 25 metre swimming pool, sauna and steam room, access to the new RESULTS fitness programme which includes over 300 interactive, 20 to 30 minute exercise programmes which can be applied to eight different exercise experiences. Aura’s fully qualified instructors also work with people of all ages and abilities to help them set and realise exercise goals and to feel healthier and better about themselves. “Most people join Aura with the intention of working towards fitness goals and we believe in giving every support to help people realise the goals they set. Working out at Aura is a lot of fun and our classes are organised so that they can be enjoyed with friends and family,” Tracy said.

To mark the day, The Roma Grill offered ½ price Fish & Chips!
How we like our Fish and Chips! National Fish and Chips Day survey reveals: · 62% have Fish and Chips on a Friday · 40% eat around the table with family or friends · Salt AND vinegar for 70% please! · A pot of tea is the ideal accompaniment for 56% The Irish Traditional Italian Chippers Association (ITICA) today announced the results of a 'Love Fish & Chips' survey to mark the first National Fish & Chips Day. The survey has revealed exactly how we like our Fish and Chips with 70 per cent going for both salt and vinegar and 56 per cent enjoying the comfort of a pot of tea with theirs! While 62 per cent like Fish and Chips on a Friday and 30 per cent prefer weekends, no one surveyed ate Fish and Chips on a Tuesday! 40 per cent like to enjoy the tradition sitting around the table with family or friends and Models Nadia Forde and Jenny Lee most go for their local Irish Masterson pictured enjoying the sunshine on Italian chipper whether the National Fish & Chips Day, Wednesday 26th one of their childhood (30 May! per cent) or near where they now live (50 per cent). Whatever chipper is nearest at the time, whether on the way home from work or an evening out, was the choice of 20 per cent. Peter Borza, Chairman of ITICA commented: "The tradition lives on and National Fish & Chips Day is really marking the well loved culture of Irish Italian chippers in Ireland and the 125 year old tradition of fish and chips." He continued: "The survey results paint a picture of Fish and Chips on a Friday in front of the TV or around the table with family or friends as the perfect wind-down treat to ring in the weekend. And preferably with a pot of tea!" The next favourite beverage to go along with the traditional Fish and Chips meal, after a pot of tea, was a beer for one-quarter of those surveyed and a glass of wine for one-fifth. ITICA (The Irish Traditional Italian Chippers Association) launched in February this year and significantly, 54 per cent of respondents stated that the ITICA logo is very important as a symbol of quality and tradition. Finally, one-fifth of those surveyed had been on a Fish & Chips date! ITICA was created to promote and build on the traditional values and ethos of the members. The official ITICA logo identifies Irish Italian member chippers around Ireland. The Irish Italian chipper culture was started by members of the Irish Italian community who arrived in Ireland in the 1880's. All members of this community come from the villages in Val Di Comino in Southern Italy. These families bore the names well-known at the local chipper today.

During the 1880's the first Italians arrived from the villages in Val di Comino to Dublin via Paris, Scotland and England. The fish and chip tradition itself started in Northern England fulfilling the need for a cheap ready-made meal. Adopted by the Italians, the fish and chip trade has been carried on by Irish Italians as family businesses and this has been key to their success.

Youghal athlete, Amanda Crotty received two gold medals at the 30th Irish National Games for Blind & Visually Impaired on Saturday 29th May 2010. Amanda Crotty took part in the 800M and 1500M and won both with personal best times. Amanda, from Youghal, came within 6 seconds in both events of qualifying for next year’s World Championships. Amanda was one of over 100 blind and visually impaired athletes Ireland and abroad that competed in 30th Anniversary Games on Saturday in the Aer Lingus Sports Club (ALSAA) & Morton Stadium. Athletes competed in a range of events including tandem cycling, tenpin bowling, football, swimming and athletics including both track and field events. The Games were organised by Irish Blind Sports (IBS), the officially recognised national governing body (NGB) with responsibility for organising sporting activities for blind and visually impaired people in Ireland. Speaking about the Games, Irish Blind Sports Chairman, Fintan O’Donnell said, “this year’s Games were a celebration of the three decades of sports for blind and visually impaired people in Ireland. Over the last 30 years, Irish blind and visually impaired sportspeople have enjoyed fantastic success. For some this has been just taking part and learning a new sport, for others it has led to them creating new World Records and winning multiple Paralympic gold medals. “Irish Blind Sports caters for all levels of ability and we would encourage anyone who is blind and visually impaired to get in touch with us if they are interested in trying a new sport”. “This year’s Games were a great success, I would like to thank everyone who was involved in the organisation of the Games and congratulate all the athletes who participated in each of the events on Saturday” added Mr. O’Donnell.

POBALSCOIL NA TRIONÓIDE NEWS Badminton Basics Programme TY Students
The Cork Sports Partnership in association with Badminton Ireland organised to deliver a Badminton Basics programme to 10 secondary schools in Cork county. Pobalscoil na Trionoide, was among one of the 10 lucky schools to participate. PE Teacher Ms. Casey, in conjunction with Badminton Development Officer Wayne Doyle, invited badminton coach Frieda Kearns to teach the programme to a group of 22 Transition Year students. The Badminton Basics module gives each student the skills and knowledge to deliver basic badminton skills to younger players and to begin assisting in coaching. The course took place over 2 sessions lasting 5 hours in total. The students were taught a mixture of fun games, different types of badminton strokes, footwork and the rules of the game. By the end of the course, students were able to demonstrate and explain the keypoints of the game. The students were interested and enthusiastic in their participation and both coach and students enjoyed the sessions. Well done to all who successfully completed the course! An excellent effort was made! Each student was presented with a certificate. We hope the students will now go on to participate in

A group of students from Pobalscoil Na Tríonóide, Youghal, Co. Cork have been invited to attend the 2010 Shanghai International Youth Science and Technology Expo, as a result of their success at the BT Young Scientist Competition, 2010. In total 6 people will travel to Shanghai China from 9th July-19th July. The group are delighted to represent their school, town, county and country in China to over 7 million visitors at the Shanghai Youth Expo (an international exhibition on tackling global climate change.) The group first came to success by winning an East Cork science competition, sponsored by Millipore, a biopharmaceutical manufacturing company in Carrigtwohill. They further entered the BT Young Scientist and came second in the Senior Biological Category. Their project is based on the quality of drinking water from a domestic water filter. Drinking water can contain pathogenic material that causes illness to humans. This idea is very topical due to the effects of climate change on the quality of drinking water. They analysed the quality of un-filtered water versus filtered water. They also designed a prototype for a water filter; which would filter drinking water and simultaneously improve the quality of drinking water and improve human health.The project began as an investigation into the quality of water in the local area. The following areas were analysed: Climate change in Ireland Quality of water in Ireland Global impact of water quality deterioration Effects of poor quality drinking water on humans Investigation into preventative measures in saving our water supply To filter or not to filter contaminated water - using a common household filter An investigation into whether this was sustainable or not. How can other methods of filtering water be developed (natural reed beds versus a common household filter which has been modified)

As you are aware, travelling to Shanghai is expensive for these three students, so we are organising sponsorship for these students. We hope that you could assist in some way and we would be forever grateful. The sponsorship could also help your organisation as the students could mention your organisation and aims when they travel to China and exhibit their project. You may contact me on 0860890377 for further details or information.

By Christy Parker Somewhat quietly but importantly, two initiatives in the never-ending battle against drug abuse are being promoted in Youghal this summer. The first project is called Dial 2 Stop Drug Dealing and is being rolled out in Youghal by the Southern Regional Drugs Task Force (SRDTF), following successful implementation in other towns across the country since late 2008. It is administered from the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. Dial 2 Stop Drug Dealing is crime-based and simply urges people with information to dial a confidential Freephone number and impart their knowledge. "Callers are not asked to identify themselves or leave their number. Neither do they need to fear a garda follow-up to their door," says SRDTF co-ordinator Chris Black. "The project is entirely an intelligence gathering exercise." The Freephone number is 1800 220220 Across Ireland, Dial 2 Stop Drug Dealing has been one of the more successful operations organised by the government in the endless battle to defeat drug pushers, or at least remove their services from local communities, others replacing them notwithstanding. "About one third of al calls have given gardai good and useful information," says Chris. "Drug squad personnel say much of the information received has been spot on and helped them with inquiries as well as bringing new names to light." According to data pertaining to 15 local and regional campaigns for the period up to December 2009 indicate the following: · Over 5,500 were received to mid November 09, with 739 calls received in June 2009 · Over 1,500 reports were sent to the Gardaí · 63% of calls are made between 11am and 5pm, most of them midweek. · There was an increase in calls around the reporting of drug related murders · There have been many Section 10 and Section 3 seizures (All according to the website Dial 2 Stop Drug Dealing initiative is funded by the Dormant Accounts Fund, the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs and the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform. It is also supported by An Garda Síochána and the Health Service Executive. Referral strategy A second initiative being piloted in Youghal from this month concerns referral action. Some years ago, in common with other communities, Youghal developed a referral strategy devolved from a surge in heroin use. This strategy is now being reassessed amidst attempts to modify it to serve drug use referrals generally. According to Chris Black, the SRDTF is looking at the points of contact a drug user would have. "One of those pints would be 'an arrest' by a garda or at least a garda becoming aware of someone's drug usage, " he says. Now, in terms of younger users (14-25 year olds), the Task Force is keen to utilise the Juvenile Liaison Officer (JLO) process in such circumstance, as against immediately taking the criminal prosecution road. "The garda would inform the JLO, who would in turn make contact with the alleged young drug user. This system is "still being tweaked" he adds and is expected to be rolled out later this month or early July. It is being piloted as part of an overall referral strategy being piloted in Youghal and Tralee. The government has committed to providing extra resources, such as increased numbers of counsellors, for at least the next two years. Chris outlines a flaw in previous referral strategies that dealt only with 'arrest' referrals. "If the referral wasn't taken up and the person subsequently came before the judiciary, then that refusal reflected badly on them," he explains. "So now we've modified down to 'came to the attention of.'" Furthermore 'arrest' referrals tend to coerce people into seeking treatment and that's not always the best basis for doing so. People need to go for treatment because they want to do so, not just to impress a judge."

By Christy Parker Two of Youghal's three beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status for the summer season. Redbarn will receive its first ever blue flag and Claycastle will have its pride and joy returned after a two-year absence. The front strand however, faces a third consecutive summer without the coveted cloth flying. The latest awards reflect the state of the beaches during they surveyed months of what passed for summer 2009. It is gratifying that such rudiment requirements as parking and toilet facilities were successfully implemented at Redbarn in particular, although many would argue that there remains plenty of scope for improvements here also. Claycastle's parking capacity is often stretched to the limits during heat-wave occasions and the toilets are probably as efficient as such unattended structures can be expected to be. Nationally, water samples from 131 designated bathing areas, comprising 122 seawater and nine freshwater jurisdictions, were assessed for compliance with EU standards last summer. The standard comprised two criteria: a) minimum EU mandatory values and b) stricter EU guidelines. Compliance with both achieved 'good' water quality status. Compliance with mandatory values only achieved 'sufficient' water quality status and failure to comply with either brought 'poor' water quality status. There were 122 (93%) bathing areas compliant with mandatory standards (sufficient). 108 (82%) of the 131 also met the stricter guidelines (good). Nine failed to meet minimum standard and Youghal's front strand was one of those. (Ardmore, incidentally achieved 'sufficient' status.) So one can safely assume that the main liability affecting the front strand is water quality. The beach would appear to suffer from the passing (pardon the pun) of raw sewerage and wet weather conditions that dislodged surface water from fields during last summer added to the ecological fragility last summer. On a far brighter note however, the imminent new town drainage and waste treatment scheme is certain to address the issue and one can expect to see the blue flag dancing in the gale-swept downpours of future Youghal summers. Youghal councillor Mary Linehan-Foley says she is "delighted Youghal has two blue flags but I won't be happy until we have three, because Youghal is highly dependent on tourism." The councillor stresses that the waste water treatment plant "needs to be advanced quickly" in light of the town's present blue flag standing. Meanwhile, Youghal town council will host a 'raise the flags' reception at the town hall on Thursday June 17th at 2pm.

Youghal United Blow the Guinness Book of Records Soccer 5-A Side Record Away.
By Derek Kiely In a spectacular display of pure raw courage, guts and determination in searing heat conditions of over 21 degrees celsius, Youghal United AFC will enter the halls of history after beating the Guinness Book of Records for a 'Continuous game of 5-A Side Soccer' at Ardrath Park over the June Bank Holiday Weekend. The official record did stand at 27 hours and 15 mins and as Youghal United started on their quest at 9.02am on Saturday the 5th of June they had beaten that record at 12.20pm on Sunday the 6th of June, where no less than 752 goals had been scored at that point in time, but the Youghal lads continued on their target of 33 hours plus which they incredibly achieved at 6.32pm on Sunday evening scoring 946 goals in total. The concept of the whole event of trying to break the record came about in September 2009, when ideas were needed to raise funds for Youghal United's Soccer Academy and money to support underage School Boy's and School Girl teams. The Original committee of Emmett Perry, Kevin 'Jock' Gallogley, Brian Wade, Finbar Walsh and Pierce Hennessy got the ball rolling on the record attempt and in just nine months the dream was achieved.

Emmett Perry said "It has been a long road, but the support we have received has been brilliant. Local sponsors like Farrell's, Bertie's, T & M Fitzgerald and the Quality Hotel Youghal has been great and the work by everyone involved in the attempt has been nothing short of miraculous".The rules governing a Guinness Book of Records attempt are very strict. 1) Only 16 players allowed in total. 2) An official referee has to be in control of the game at all times. 3) Every kick has to be recorded by Video, for proof of timing. 4) The game has to be played at a respectable pace and no time wasting is accepted. All of the above were adhered to impeccably and Youghal United AFC must be congratulated for the way the venue was set up over the weekend. The players were encamped in a special section of the ground vis-

ible to all the hundreds of people at some stage of the attempt either during the morning, afternoon, evening or during the night to support the lads. Along with the obvious centre-piece of the Guinness Book of Record attempt, the Youghal United club also invited all the other sporting associations in the area to come along and set up stands displaying their sports, making the whole event a real community effort. Perry said "The players are real heroes in my opinion, they have literally given Players Michael Lyons and Leon Geary with everything they have for Coach Ken Dempsey this attempt and I can't thank them enough. At 5 am on Sunday morning the will power was tested to the limit, it was cold, wet and fatigue was a huge issue, but they dug deep and showed unbelievable heart to keep going". The players who made this piece of Youghal sporting history are: Team Captains Kevin Gallogley and Patrick Morrissey, Christophe Colin, Kevin Gallogley, Barry Goggin, Diarmuid Schuel, David O'Keefe, Mike Lyons, Aidan Ryan, David Kenneally, Peter Geary, Leon Geary, Martin Coen, Pierce Hennessy, Anthony Kelly, Gavin O'Leary and Stuart Hickey. These 16 players will be admired and revered for many years to David O’Keefe and Jamie Lawton come after such an astonishing achievement. Perry finished by saying "The support we have received is brilliant and we silenced the doubters who said we couldn't do it and I must thank the referees, Eddie Foley, Ken Hennessy, Seamus Landers, Paul and Kieran Griffin, David Coleman and Ed McNally. There are so many people we want to thank who gave their time up for this event and we would really like to thank Ken Dempsey who gave us all the Exercise and Nutritional advice we need throughout". Youghal United will now go into the history books for an amazing 33 ½ hour record for a continuous 5 A Side soccer match. Congratulations, it will take some effort to beat this one.

Forrest Fire at Remnagh On the afternoon of Wednesday May 26th a forest fire broke out in the Remnagh area of Mount Stuart causing extensive damage to over five acres of mature trees. The fire which was first reported by a vigilant local farmer who noticed smoke coming from the woodland at around 4.00pm. He contacted the emergency services and five units of the fire brigade were quickly on the scene. At this stage the fire had already taken hold and driven by strong winds at the time it was heading towards nearby farm buildings. Thankfully the fire was brought it under control before it reached the sheds. All units of the fire brigade remained at the scene late in to the evening to ensure the fire did not rekindle While it is not know how the fire started - once again we appeal to people visiting our forest and woodland to be aware of the dangers of fire especially during prolonged dry spells. Clashmore 45 Drive These weeks 45 Drive winners were Mary Anne and Bobby Connery, Pat Roche and Liam Curran both on seven games each in third place we had Dan Leahy and Stephen Cunningham on six games.

Summer Concerts at St Mary's Collegiate Church
A heart warming thank you to all the participants who performed at the church fundraiser on Sunday, Mar 30th. The concert was a great success and well attended by the people of Youghal. Youghal has such great talent, it was a pleasure to showcase it in this fabulous venue. The concert was organised to raise funds towards installing a heating system at the church as it can be extremely cold during the winter months. €2,150 was raised on the night which is a great start towards this much needed facility. Now we can begin investigating the different heating options available to us, all in keeping with the structure of this beautiful ancient building. We still need your continued support to implement this project and make the concert experience even greater at St Mary's Collegiate Church. More concerts to follow this month starting on Thursday June 17th The Youghal Choral Society will be singing at the church in collaboration with the twinning committee of Larmor-Plage, France, who will be visiting our town for a few days. At the end of June, we will have the pleasure of welcoming Capella, the senior chamber choir at The Wallace High School from Lisburrn, Co. Antrim.

Youghal is now recognised as south coasts most popular resort. This stunning holiday destination has been awarded an EU Blue Flag for the beach at Claycastle near the town centre. It's no wonder that Youghal has become the family destination of choice. The adventurous holiday-maker can choose from a range of activities including power-boating, dinghy-racing, yacht cruising, whale watching, even wreck-diving!For those looking for a more laid-back experience, visitors can take a relaxing cruise or fishing trip on the Blackwater river - one of Europe's most unspoilt rivers. Perks Family Entertainment Centre and the Aura Leisure Centre is a must for all the family and with more holiday homes to rent than any other resort town on the South Coast - including cottages, houses, apartments, guest houses and even luxury villas, many with spectacular views, you will be spoilt for choice. But this resort is not just about the sea...It's about the 'craic' in the bars, the live music, the world famous seafood restaurants, the golf and greyhound racing all set in the backdrop of a medieval town of stunning beauty and character.What sets Youghal apart from other resorts however, is its natural beauty, with stunning walks and cycle routes along ecology areas to the historical town centre. Youghal is also a perfect base in which to explore the beauty of East Cork and West Waterford. A large number of internationally acknowledged heritage sites and conservation areas are visible along these routes. Youghal is also one of the best preserved examples of a 13th century town in Europe, and as such has been designated a 'Heritage' Town by Failte Ireland. It was built as a town to defend and control trade on the Blackwater River which leads into the heart of Munster's rich farmlands. Youghal's position was critical to the maintenance of that trade, and access to the most valuable farmland in Ireland. It derives its name from the Gaelic word 'Eochaill', meaning 'yew wood', pronounced 'Yawl'. You can explore the walls and one of the towers from which it is possible to make out the original layout of the town. Full details on the historic buildings in Youghal, such as the Watergate, Myrtle Grove, Tyntes Castle and St. Mary's Collegiate Church can be found in our heritage section. The most notable (and photographed) building in the town centre is the fine Clock Tower in the main street, built in 1776 as a gaol (jail) to imprison the renegade Catholics. It was routinely used as torture chamber and was universally regarded as a symbol of terror and tyranny!Sir Walter Raleigh is probably the most famous citizen of Youghal, responsible for bringing two things to Youghal - potatoes and tobacco, as Youghal was the leading trading point in Ireland at the time. Another famous resident of Youghal was the first Earl of Cork, Sir Richard Boyle, who purchased many of the estates of Raleigh. Boyle's remains are buried in St. Mary's Collegiate Church, an 11th century jewel.To fully appreciate medieval and historical Youghal, take a guided or self guided tour around Youghal Heritage Trail , commencing at Youghal Tourist Office.Today Youghal celebrates its past and present in a series of events and festivals throughout the year. For the Irish music and dance enthusiast Ceoltas Si' is performed in a number of locations throughout the town, both shows running throughout July and August. Sports enthusiasts can take part in the Youghal Triathlon in July. A family fun day that celebrates Youghal's magical medieval past is the annual Medieval Fun Day. Youghal Celebrates History is an annual conference when historians from Ireland and abroad gather for animated discussions on Youghal's heritage.Youghal is ideally geographically positioned. It's where the beauty of East Cork merges with stunning West Waterford and serves as a perfect base for the holidaymaker. With access to both Cork and Waterford Airports only a 45 minute drive away.

You can find all sorts of suggestions and alternatives by visiting or by asking in the Tourist Office in the centre of town near the Clock Gate. The route takes you out of Youghal on the N25 towards Cork on the man road for about one kilometre and then you swing left on the Ballymacoda road - the R633. You notice a beautiful marshy area on your left - Ballyvergan Bog -as you turn left on the R633. Just after that left turn there is a Hide from which you can enjoy the wildlife of this very special bog which is both sea water and fresh water. Local Ranger Pat Smiddy has written a beautiful book about the flora and fauna in Ballyvergan Bog - this contains photographs and detailed knowledge about the Bog and is well worth reading. There are 4 species of bat.... the book is available locally and is a real treat. We continue on towards Ballymacoda. You could take a short detour (500 metres) to the Quality Hotel at Redbarn where a magnificent lounge bar enjoys unrestricted views of Youghal Bay and Capel Island but we are heading now towards Ladysbridge. You come to a T Junction - to the left is Ballymacoda , if you take that road you reach Knockadoon - the southern tip of the bay where you can almost touch Capel Island. Maybe another day! At our T Junction we turn right towards Ladysbridge. It is an undulating road with some gentle slopes and descents (nothing too challenging for the cyclist or the walker!). Take your time, breathe the clean air! At Ladysbridge, turn right at the monument and head to Castlemartyr. You could stop in Castlemartyr for a bite to eat, a coffee or something stronger! Stop at the traffic lights as you will be crossing the N25 again, this time heading for Mogeely, a short run. Turn right at Mogeely and the road will bring you back to Killeagh where you rejoin the N25. It is well worth stopping to visit Killeagh Woods where the colour which seeps through the trees, glinting on the streams, is hauntingly beautiful, an ancient forest full of surprises and a few well marked routes. The entrance to Killeagh Woods is behind the Old Thatch pub - which serves an excellent meal, bowl of soup, cup of .. or a pint! This is one of the oldest pubs in Ireland and brings with it a lovely mellow ambience. Killeagh is not a big town - but just count the number of pubs! There are a few possible routes back to Youghal - the most straightforward is the main road the N25 which is a straight run into Youghal. There is a wide hard shoulder for cyclists. It is a gentle, downhill road - and if the wind is with you, throw back your shoulders and sail into Youghal.

Young Person from Youghal receives Garda Youth Award
Killian Daly, 17, from Blackwater Heights won a garda youth award recently. The Cork North Garda Division gives these awards to recognise the very positive contribution young people are making in their communities. The value of winning such an award cannot be underestimated. Only two young people from Youghal were nominated. Categories included were community, sport and personal achievement, for young people aged 15 to 20 years of age. Eight young people and two groups received awards. The young people all reside in the Cork North District which is comprised of the following Garda districts: Fermoy, Midleton, Cobh and Mallow. Killian Daly has been a member of For?ige Youth Club since 2005 and currently sits on Youghal and East Cork Youth Committees. Killian has been a hugely positive influence on a soccer group set up by the Youghal Garda Youth Diversion Project last September. This soccer group began with seven young people and now regularly attracts 17-20 young people each week. Killian also volunteered with a younger group in the project and has given his free time to fundraising and other organising of events. Killian is on the student Council of his secondary school, Pobal Scoil na Tríonóide and is a also a first year leader there. Killian acted as M.C. for the Y-Factor talent night in Youghal in December and again for a Talent Night in Youghal Youth Cafe in April of this year and was very good in his role on both occasions. He also addressed the guests at the launch of Foróige Youth Services in Youghal in February of this year and spoke eloquently of the impact the project has had on his life and his goal of being a youth worker in the future. Killian is a role model for his peers and conducts himself well and with maturity in the Youth Project. He is enthusiastic and positive and motivated despite some difficulties he has had in his life. Killian is an active member of Youghal G.A.A., soccer and rugby clubs and also plays for the school in these sports also. Killian received his award on 24th May in the Firgrove Hotel, Mitchelstown. The event was organised by Sgt. Claire Kenealy, Midleton and sponsored by Cavanaghs of Fermoy. All guests were given a three course meal and Special guests present were Denis Leamy and Denis Fogarty, Munster Rugby Players. Other guests present were Chief Superintendent Kieran McGann, Judge Michael Patwell, Batt O' Keeffe T.D., councillors and clergy from the district. Community Guards, Juvenile Liaison Officers, young people, their parents, friends and youth workers also attended the event.Killian thanked An Garda Síochána, his parents, youth workers and everyone who has helped him along the way for this award.On behalf of the Youghal Youth Services (Foróige), we would like to congratulate Killian on winning this prestigious award and wish him every success in the future.

This week our Lady Captain Phil Mangan’s prize will be played for. This is one of the highlights of the year for the members, especially the ladies. In contention for the top prize this week will be Joan Hyde, Sally Wallace, Lily Bulman and Joy Bryan who have all been in great form in recent weeks. The competition tees off this Wednesday at 6.30 and continues Friday at 6.30, Saturday at 2.30 and Sunday at 10.30 and 2.30. Munster Matchplay Championship- Colin Sheehan and Paudie O’ Sullivan represented the club with great distinction at the Parteen course in Limerick. Colin put in a brave display in the first round against the hugely experienced Tipperary Inter-county star John O’ Meara. Unfortunately Colin lost 6 and 5 but great experience was gained from the game against one of Irelands top players. In the top half of the draw Paudie progress past round 1 with relative ease and also cruised through the 2nd round to set up a quarterfinal showdown with Irelands no.2 ranked player John Wlash. After an epic battle the game was level. Johns putt for a two on the 37th hole was enough to send the Collins man through and heartbreak for Paudie who put in a terrific effort. Yet again disappointment for the Claycastle contingent but that illusive title is getting closer . The report from the Gents National Matchplay will follow in the next issue.

Congratulations to Aaron on acheiving this historic double and bringing the two All-Ireland titles to Youghal C.Y.M.S.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Club
We were subjected to all the vagaries of the Irish climate in this past week, ranging from cold and rain to tropical sunshine. We carried on regardless! Our Under 11 hurlers had contrasting weather and contrasting fortunes in the space of 48 hours at the beginning of the week. On Monday evening Ahavine was very wet and very cold, as our southerly neighbours Fr. O'Neill's welcomed us for our opening game of the Under 11 league. We competed gamely in atrocious conditions, but our hosts were too strong and had a little more hurling than us, and took the spoils. On Wednesday evening our trip to Youghal to play our easterly neighbours proved more productive as we came away with victory. On Saturday last Páirc Uí Chinnéide was busy for a full 12 hours. While Watergrasshill and Youghal took centre stage in the evening's Premier Intermediate Championship fixture, the morning saw almost as many cars as the evening, as we welcomed 4 teams for the opening blitz in a sequence of 5 to be run over the Summer in the new Go Games format. Ballinacurra, Fr. O'Neill's, Erins Own and Lisgoold, along with our own team, competed in this 10-a-side Under 9 hurling blitz. With the Costa del Sol weather and two specially adapted pitches with zones, everything was right for a good morning of hurling, and we got three full hours of it from all 5 teams. Each team won at least one game, with Ballinacurra and Fr. O'Neill's proving to be the strongest of the 5 teams there. A buíochas mór to all who helped to make this a successful event - in particular to our two young referees Dylan and Daniel, to our four visiting teams, their supporters and mentors, and to the suppliers, providers and servers of tea and refreshments over the course of the morning. The generosity of those who brought food and those who stayed to cater for our visitors is much appreciated, and a special thanks to Ursula for once again showing dedication and commitment that cannot be matched. Thank you and well done to all our own boys who played so well, and to John and Alan for keeping everybody focused, happy and content over the course of the three hours. Finally, a few teams were discommoded by the unavailability of their regular space and time for Saturday morning training - thank you also to them for accommodating our Under 9's and their visitors. Once again, a reminder that Summer Camp is getting closer and Ursula really needs to know how many participants we'll have. So get your completed entry forms back to Ursula a.s.a.p., or contact her on 087-6292646 to get a form if you need one. Remember, if you're not there, you'll never know what you might miss out on!

75% full for 'Lakes of Killarney Festival of Golf'
By Derek Kiely MOMENTUM is building ahead of the 2010 Golf Pairs Competition of the season at Killarney Golf Club, when the hopefuls of amateur golf tee it up on Tuesday the 29th of June. The 'Lakes of Killarney Festival of Golf' has received tremendous entries so far and 75% of the time sheet is full, but there is still some availability for what must be the 'Must Play' golf event of the year. In recent week's teams have entered from all four provinces and there has been a massive interest especially from Cork teams. The tournament is going to be not only a great test of golf, but also a fantastic opportunity for players to visit, stay and play in the Kingdom for an unbelievable low cost. The three courses in operation at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club, Lackabane, Mahony's Point and Killeen are in magnificent condition and Par 4 Events and Tournament Director Tim O'Sullivan has nothing but praise for the staff at Killarney Golf Club, he said "The three courses are superb and as we get ever closer to the tournament I think that each competitor will enjoy what each individual course has to offer. I believe that the tournament will be very competitive, but at the end of the day everyone will enjoy these courses and when you consider the importance of playing the venue for the '3 Irish Open' just a couple of weeks before the big guns tee it up, well that is a dream for any golfer isn't it". Indeed the recent inspection of the course has definitely had the 'WOW Factor' and tied in with the great overall deals on offer for the visitor to Killarney it certainly looks like a winning formula. O'Sullivan added "Everyone involved in the event here in Killarney are looking forward to getting the event off and running and meeting the golfers as they arrive at Killarney Golf Club and a lot of our entries so far have taken the package deal on offer which is unbelievably cheap and fantastic value, but there is an option of €165 cost outside of accommodation, for people who wish to travel home each day or rent alternative accommodation etc and that in my opinion is extremely good value for three rounds of golf, plus entry into the competition, we are pretty flexible with people, but with just 25% of places remaining people will have to get in touch pretty soon". There are a host of big names entered so far, Stan Boardman, Mike England, Denis Taylor and Steve Davis to name a few with a few more big names and very familiar faces will be seen over the course of the three days. Destination Killarney, Ladbrokes and Killarney Golf and Fishing Club all fully support the event and with a lot of good will and good thinking all 54 tee boxes will be donated to the Carers Association over the three days, so it is important to recognise the importance of the great work that the Carers Association do 365 days of the year and this is a nice way for Par 4 Golf Events to do their little bit to help what is a great cause. As May comes to an end the excitement will build throughout the month of June ahead of the 'Lakes of Killarney Festival of Golf'. The Packages on offer for this great event are as follows: €265 per person for entry into the competition and two nights Bed & Breakfast at the Gleneagle Hotel (Non golfer €100). €280 per person based on four people sharing for 3 nights self catering at the River Apartments and entry into the competition. €295 per person for entry into the competition and two nights Bed & Breakfast at the Brehon Hotel. (Non golfer €130) €165 for entry to the competition for three days golf excluding accommodation.For more information about the event and to acquire contact details check out the website Email Telephone number Tim O'Sullivan Tournament Director 00353 (0)87- 9273694 Derek Kiely Press officer or 00353 (0)89-4191901 The Gleneagle Hotel Main Desk Reservations 00353 (0)64-6671550

Don't put off buying new tyres your life depends on good ones !!!!!!!!!!!!
Research by a leading independent tyre dealer network, has shown that over 30 percent of cars coming into the company's depots have at least one illegal tyre up from 19 percent one year ago. The worrying research also shows that over 80 percent of cars have badly worn tyres, with a tread depth below 2mm, and in need of urgent replacement. As signs of economic recovery begin to appear, it is still clear however that consumers are putting off the replacement of dangerous tyres with a tread depth below the legal minimum in an attempt to save money. "The reality is that delaying the replacement of badly worn tyres is a false economy that places drivers, their passengers and other road users at serious risk.

are scheduled for 2PM.Last year the crowds were entertained to some exciting driving and great skill between the specials and the lads in the rally cars resulting in a final lap shootout between Mikey O Connor and Christopher Culleton with Mikey taking overall victory by the slenderest of margins.

Many think the new driverless Audi TT is the beginning of the end for the motorist !!!!!!!!! It will make the car more of a state run car then a drivers own car the max speed can be set the car will obey all road signs speed limits and every thing else it will park itself and do every thing by the book to the purist this is the end of motoring and the freedom and enjoyment of owning and driving your own car. No your car will not drive it self in the near future !!!!!!!! but it could well contain a black box (many already do) that will tell the court what speed you were doing your average speed and the last time you went over the speed limit and where this technology is here already and ready to go into action when our governments decide. Big brother is watching and he is closer then you think. 200 years ago, two Peugeot brothers, Jean-Pierre and JeanFrédéric, established the Peugeot company with the creation of 'la société Peugeot-Frères et Jacques Maillard-Salins'. The company was set up after the brothers had converted their father's corn mill into a steel mill to make the most of the industrial revolution which was gathering pace. Since then, Peugeot has been associated with saws, tools, steel crinoline stays, salt and pepper mills, coffee grinders, bicycles, motorcycles, scooters, cars and vans. Each of these diverse products is founded on those early origins in steel while bearing Peugeot's hallmark of modernity and innovation.

Intermediate Hurling League Eochaill v. Ballymartle Date: 23/5/10 Result: Eochaill 2-17 Ballymartle 1-16 Youghal got their third win in this league campaign courtesy of a hardfought victory against Ballymartle. Played in sweltering heat, this match had a championship pace from the throw-in. Youghal went into an early lead with some good points from play, before Andrew Curtin found the net after a great assist from James O'Mahony. Youghal played well throughout the half, though the opposition did miss a couple of goal opportunities. Youghal led by 6 points at half-time. The game was turned on its head within the first ten minutes of the second half when Ballymartle went on a scoring spree to draw level. Youghal were really tested at this stage to turn the tide back in their favour. In fairness, they dug deep & showed great character for the rest of the game, scoring some great points to eventually run out winners by four points. A satisfactory performance & result for the team, which is encouraging as it comes with the championship just around the corner. Youghal Team: Eoin Coleman, Ml Cronin, John Grace, Brendan O'Sullivan, Garreth Hogan, Conor Spillane, Barry Ring, Nigel Roche, Brett Maloney, Damien Ring, Bill Cooper, Ciaran O'Mahony, James O'Mahony, Brendan Coleman, Andrew Curtin.

The Race Around Ireland Stops Off In Youghal
The Race Around Ireland have decided on the provisional route for September 2010 and it's passing through Youghal. The Walter Raleigh Hotel in Youghal has been named as an official time station and the Hotel has thrown its doors open for the race. Michael Davitt, Hotel Manager, said; "We're very proud to be supporting The Race Around Ireland and Team Youghal as we see it as being a fantastic opportunity to enhance Youghal as a tourist destination while seeing up close what an extreme endurance race involves and supporting a well deserved local and international charity in the process." The Walter Raleigh Hotel has made accommodation available for all teams that are competing in the race and also will have a dedicated press room available for the media that will be following the event. Time Stations will be set approximately 40 to 80 miles apart. At each Time Station a competing team must call into Race Headquarters and report their location and time. This information will be posted on the Race Around Ireland website and it will allow the officials, as well as team fans, to track the team's progress.

Team Youghal are training hard for the event and now that we have the provisional route we can start forming our race tactics to retain the eight man team accolade for 2010. We are still actively looking for sponsors to support Team Youghal and so far the response has exceeded our expectations but there is still a long way to go to reach our target. We are very appreciative of the support received so far considering the present economic climate. Our involvement in the race will be to raise awareness and funds for The Emer Casey Foundation which is doing very valuable work around the detection and treatment of ovarian and uterine cancer." Team Youghal consists of an eight man cycling team with support crew. All cyclists are leisure cyclists who cycle for a hobby and include a Garda, Fire Officer, Electrician and a wide diversity of other professions.Team Youghal will be competing in The Race Around Ireland which is part of the Ultra Marathon Cycling Association (UMCA) World Cup series which includes other huge endurance races such as The Race Across America.
