YOUGHAL ICA GUILD MEMBERS JOIN IN CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS IN WEXFORD.
This year the Irish Countrywomen's Assoc. celebrates 100 years since its foundation in Bree, Wexford, by Anita Lett. To honour this occasion there are celebrations all over Ireland, but naturally the best celebrations are in Wexford. A group of fifty women from West, North, and East Cork, travelled by bus to Wexford on Weds. 5th May for three days, to take part in the events. Mary Lynch, Kitty Flavin and Kay Donnelly from the Youghal Guild joined the group on the trip. Following a relaxing lunch at Lawlors in Dungarvan the tour headed off to the JFK ARBORETUM near New Ross. It covers an area of 252 hectares (623 acres) and has beautiful walks and a hilltop view of six counties and contains 4500 different types of trees and shrubs. A video was first shown of the whole park giving information of its origin and then, an official guide came on the bus as it went around, giving a commentary on the main points of interest . Following afternoon tea and scones in the café, the group set out on the road to Wexford and the Talbot Hotel where everyone had a well earned rest before regrouping at 7.30 for dinner. Thursday morning, bright and early, the bus set out for the Hook Peninsula. First stop was a visit to Tomhaggard Penal Mass House which is the only thatched Mass House still existing in Ireland. Next stop was Kilmore Quay, where the local ICA guild treated the Cork ladies to morning coffee. Just outside the town there is a wonderful memorial garden to all those lost at sea from the area with inscriptions of the names of the ships and the sailors. Then it was on to the Hook Head Lighthouse at Fethard on Sea, where the group had a lovely lunch and climbed the lighthouse to get a panoramic view from the tower. This Lighthouse is the oldest operational Lighthouse in the world boasting a tradition of lightkeeping from the early 13th century. The historic ruins of Tintern Abbey, built in 1200 by the Cistercian Monks from Tintern in Wales was next visited. The group were glad to get back to the Talbot for a well earned break before putting on the glad rags for the Gala Dinner at Ferrycarrig Hotel at 8 pm. where the National President Anne Maria Dennison was the guest of honour. Following a lovely meal, entertainment was provided by the Wexford Mummers. Friday morning gave people an opportunity to relax in the Leisure Centre or have a lie-in or go on a historic tour of Wexford or do some shopping. Having recharged the batteries it was off to Bree, the birthplace of the ICA, for an Ecumenical service at 3pm. The Church was packed to the door by 2.30. The sevice was followed by a parade of all the guilds present with their colorful banners to the ICA Memorial Garden, led by the Pipe Band. At the Garden there was the unveiling of a memorial plaque and a tree planting ceremony. When all the ceremonies were finished there was a Buffet Meal in the Community Centre for everyone and some excellent entertainment afterwards with comedy sketches and Irish Dancing, singing and music. The Cork Group raised the rafters with a spirited rendition of " The Banks" A large Centenary cake was then cut by the National President and the celebrations finished with a heart warming singing of "She is a Rich and Rare Land" the anthem of the Irish Countrywomen's Assoc. But that was not the end of the night as when the group arrived back at the Talbot there was tea and cake for everyone. Some people were only fit for the bed by then, but the hardier ones partied into the early hours of the morning. Saturday morning saw everyone up early as the bus was leaving at 9am. After a hearty breakfast the cases were loaded and the bus set out for New Ross where a treat was in store with a visit to the Ros Tapestry and the Dunbrody Famine ship. The Ros Tapestry is a work in progress telling the history of Wexford in stitches . It was started in 1998 and will take some time yet to finish. The fifteen separate panels painted by Ann Griffin Bernstorff, are stitched by volunteers all over Wexford and Kilkenny. All this hard work called for a bit of retail therapy which was pro-
vided shortly by a visit to Dove Hill just outside Carrick-on-Suir . Here, in spacious surroundings, all kinds of everything were available to tempt the ladies to spend their money if they had any left. Upstairs a pleasant Restaurant with helpful staff provided a welcome meal to sustain members for the last leg of the homeward journey. That was when the singsong began in earnest and all the old favourites were rolled out. As each group left the bus, Mitchelstown, Watergrasshill, they were serenaded by a rousing rendering of "Good Bye, Good Bye " which would have brought a tear to the eye of Joseph Locke . The West Cork group were being picked up in Little Island and then on to Castlemartyr for the Shanagarry ladies. And then there were three for the last drop in Youghal, Kitty Flavin, Mary Lynch and Kay Donnelly. Finally, a word of thanks to Breeda Whelan from Kilmore ICA who organised the trip. She had every day well planned and put time into researching all the places of interest, looked after the group like a mother and lost no one. And a special word of thanks for the bus driver Joe O'Brien who was courteous and helpful above the call of duty.

DRUNK DRIVING TOPS GARDA CRIME CONCERNS LAST WEEK.
By Christy Parker An increase in drunk driving was the "most worrying" crime feature in the Youghal area over the previous week Sergeant John Sharkey told CRY listeners in last Saturday's garda report. The sergeant said five drivers had been apprehended, one during random checkpoints and four through general garda observance. The offenders included Irish and non-Irish nationals. One incidence of drunk driving was detected when a car driven by a Polish national was involved in an accident with a Bus Eireann bus in South Main Street on Sunday night May 16th. The man's case was adjourned to July 16th at Youghal district court last Friday, after gardai said other charges arising from the accident may be levied. Four of the drunk-driving incidents occurred over a two-day, weekend period and the sergeant was at a loss as to why there should be surge. He speculated that fine weather could induce some people to take a drink and, advising against it, elaborated on how detection can occur. "We have a schedule of random check points where people are breathalysed," he said. "Also sometimes, we do an Operation Surround, where check points are mounted on every road into a chosen town. Its intended as a deterrent and actually if we catch someone for drunk driving, the operation is deemed to have failed," he concluded. 'Debs' man in petrol offence The sergeant referred to one "interesting" court case of the previous day. Patrick Brown, from Cork, received six months for acquiring petrol in Youghal before leaving without paying for it. The father of two had received national coverage in recent weeks when he was jailed for five years at Cork Circuit Court after pleading guilty to 37 (from 77 alleged instances) to pleaded guilty to stealing more than €200,000 in deposits from debs students at 26 secondary schools in Cork city and county. Sergeant Sharkey noted that the defendant suffered from a serious gambling addiction, to which reference was made in the Youghal court. He pleaded guilty to the offence and his sentence will run concurrent with his five-year term. Sergeant Sharkey took time to explain that cases often took longer to come to court than people might expect or appreciate. "It's the way the system works," he said. "But the upside is that everything is covered. There are always two sides to every story and we investigate ideally get a third side, which is the 'independent witness' one. So I say don't lose faith in he justice system; wheels turn slowly but will turn and in most cases justice will win out. A rushed investigation is often a bad investigation." Thefts, damages and check those cheques. The sergeant reported on several other incidents that occurred during the week. On Sunday 16th a Douglas man had "his wallet containing a fair amount of cash, plus an mp3 player, stolen from his van in South Main Street between 7.40pm and 8pm." Gardai are reviewing CCTV footage, which is "pretty good on that street and will give us a good idea of who was in the area at the time," said the garda. Meantime information is being sought by gardai at (024) 92200. At 11.30 pm on Monday evening May 17th, gardai arrested one man at Magner's Hill, following an alleged assault involving two local young males. "One of them sustained injures that legally would be termed 'harm' so we made an arrest. He was released without charge pending further inquiries. We have some witnesses to interview and a good idea where we are going with it," the sergeant explained. He added that it was "alleged" that a weapon was used, which caused cuts. On the weekend May 14th to 16th, between Friday morning and Sunday lunchtime, damage was inflicted on a small red car at Quain's Terrace. "It's the second time it has been damaged in a short space of time and the lady owner has no idea why," Sergeant Sharkey said On Thursday May 13th, between 5.30pm and opening time on Friday morning, a front door window was broken at a shop on the North Main Street. "It may have been an attempted burglary but no access gained." Said the sergeant. "Or it may have been an act of random damage or even an accident. The shop is close to a licensed premises." Also during the week a Limerick man was found drunk and abusive at O'Neill Crowley Street and "will appear in court in due course." The sergeant served a reminder that the next Youghal and District Community Alert meeting is on Tuesday June 1st at 7.45 in the Walter Raleigh. "It's as good a forum as any to bring your concerns or complaints," he concluded.

In the opening half there were some great individual performances, Joe Deane unlucky not to rattle the net more than once. On the halfway mark we led 1-9 to 0-9. The Barr's started the second half with purpose and within the opening ten minutes we found ourselves trailing by two points. We tackewd on two to close the gap but two goals in quick succession killed any chance of a comeback. Final score St. Finbarr's 4-15 to Killeagh 1-13. On Sunday evening we travelled to a Midleton to take on the Magpies. In ther opening five minutes Andy Walsh had us three points in front before Midleton opened their account. Midleton closed the gap and from there on in both teams traded scores until Joe Deane rattled the Midleton net to open the gap to two points and just before half time Mark Landers goaled from close range to leave the score 2-8 to 0-9 points in favour of Killeagh. The second half started much the same as the opening half and Killeagh maintained the five point lead as both teams traded scores. A goal midways through the second half from Midleton narrowed the gap to two points and with only minutes remaining we conceded a 21 yard free which was initially saved but found the back of the net through a rebound. Now on the backfoot and a point down a long puck out from Bernard Rochford found the hand of Joe Budds who tied the scores up just on the stroke of full time. Final score 2-13 to 2-13.

Concerts at the beautiful 13th Century, St Mary's Collegiate Church have become very popular in the last few months with artists such as Mick Flannery, Kila and Declan O'Rourke to mention a few, performing and these concerts have been greatly supported by the people of Youghal and the surrounding areas. Slowly but surely we have been upgrading this beautiful ancient church with the addition of cushions in the pews, replacing old carpets and replacing the plastic partition in the chancel with a beautiful blue velvet curtain. The Church unfortunately doesn't receive any funding whatsoever, therefore we rely totally on donations and income from the rental of the church. Only recently grant aid has been approved for the acquisition of a mobile stage and the three extra doors in the building are currently being repaired and will be open in the next week or so making concerts safer in the event of a fire. In an attempt to continually improve the comfort of concert goers, we plan to install a heating system as it can be very cold during the winter months. A fundraising concert will be held on Sunday May 30th in the Church to raise funds towards the installation of said system. Participation from community groups and individuals at this event has been so great that there will be 17 acts performing on the night from children's dance groups to church choirs, from theatre groups to Michael Jackson impersonators to individual solo singers. It promises to be a great family evening out with a vast array of live performers in this beautiful setting.Tickets on the door for only €10.Parking available at the rear of the church on Raheen Road, at Fairfield car-park near Berties Pub or behind Super Valu. No parking allowed in the grounds of the church. Please come along and support our rich local heritage. For further information call 083 360 6507.

Bookings have been received from a host of different venues throughout Ireland and abroad.( More details later) The local community and the local tourist providers will be delighted to hear that Ceolta Si will perform 12 Seisiun nights at Bru na Si the home of Comhaltas in this area. Each Monday and Thursday evening during July and August,tourist and locals can experience an authentic evening of the very best of local talent. The 2010 seasons will start on the 12th of July; this is to allow over 30 members of the local Branch travel to the Willie Clancy Traditional Music Festival which takes place in Milltown Malbay each year for the past 38 years. A nice lively tempo is often used to evaluate a piece of music and Ceolta Si constantly acquires this commendation for all its activities. This summer season promises more of the same with 21 performances at home and away. Look out for more details soon.

YOUGHAL'S VHF BOYS TUNE INTO SAILING WEATHER
By Christy Parker Two young Youghal lads savouring the increased opportunity for outdoor activities that the fine weather brings are Anthony White and Adrian Lee. Both are keen boaters and earlier this year became widely accepted as the two youngest sailors ever to acquire VHF/DSC (Digital message transmitting) qualification in Ireland. At 12, they were of the minimum age for inclusion on the course. Besides having Christian names beginning with the letter 'A', there is a remarkable similarity in profile between the two friends. Both are the sons of coastguard service fathers who introduced them to the sea at a very early age, both are from a family of four with one older sister and both want to fly helicopters as adults. They are both also Manchester United fans, though they have a marked reluctance to settle for second best as befell their team this year! Anthony is the son of 'Goggy' and Mary White of Sarsfield's Terrace and brother of Jenna,15. He frequently goes fishing with his dad on a 19 ft boat part-owned by Tom Power. (Goggy, a lifelong fisherman, is an Aston Villa supporter in Youghal, so is presumably unfazed by loneliness at sea). Anthony harbours hopes of piloting a helicopter with the Royal Navy when he reaches adulthood. He is therefore delighted that his newly acquired qualification not only entitles him "to use a radio on any boat in the world" but also provides a step on the path to his long-term flying ambitions. He attends Bunscoil Mhuire. Adrian, a few months older than Anthony is the son of Richard and Ruth Vance Lee and his older sibling Christina is 14. He also wants to pilot helicopters in the longer term, although he sees the Irish Coastguards service as the beneficiaries. He fishes with his dad in an 18ft craft but also has his own boat and a kayak. He had his first boat trip while was prambound but his worse boating experience was sat precariously on a crate in a wave-spearing speedboat some years ago, he agrees. He a t t e n d s Gaelscoil Chorain. The boys, who already epitomise cool-headed poise when discussing their achievements and ambitions, built confidence for the exam by joining the coastguard crew for a couple of evenings a week for nearly a month. They then undertook an intensive weekend course amongst a dozen or so adults under the tutelage of Aqua Trek supremo John Innes after which a Department of the Marine official set them a written and oral exam. They found more difficult than anticipated but sailed through it nonetheless. To illustrate the ambitious young sailors' achievements the course covered "Communications in the Maritime Mobile Service, Working Knowledge of Radio Equipment, Procedures and Subsystems of the GMDSS, Procedures and Regulations, Purpose of Digital Selective Calling (DSC), Distress Urgency and Safety Communications, Maritime Safety Information (MSI), Care and Maintenance of Batteries." Flying a helicopter should be a piece of cake after that.

Sonia O'Sullivan won the 3rd Melbourne Emer Casey 10K held at Monash University today. The largest entry to date of 168 competitors competed over 5K and 10K at this splendid University venue.

Over $20,000 were raised for Cancer Research being carried out by the Peter Mac Foundation, who run the largest cancer hospital in the southern hemisphere. The Director of Monash University, Martin Doulton, who has been very much been involved in the promotion of the event, was master of ceremonies and was full of praise for work of the Emer Casey Foundation.

All prizes for Sunday's race were sponsored and the organisers would like to thank all their sponsors including the Celtic Club in Melbourne, Run for Your Life and also the project manager from Monash, Kim Doulton.

Youghal Athletic Club
Sponsored by Youghal Credit Union Results and Upcoming Fixtures: The following are the results and up coming fixtures of Youghal Athletic club:- First up we had the John Treacy 10 mile road race held in Villierstown, on May the 16th. This was a tricky and tough enough course on a hot day and first home with a great run was Darren Chambers in 1.11.34, closely followed by Richie McCarthy in 1.12.32. Then we had four of our runners coming in together which was great to see, we had George Bulman, John Lynch, Sylvie O'Mahony and John O'Mahony. Well done to Sylvie on winning best female prize over 50 (Georgie told me). Next up we had the Cheetah Fota Fun 4 mile road race in Fota Wildlife Park. This is the only race in Europe run through a Wildlife park and they got a big turn of 631 runners. First home was Mossie Cahill in 24.17, not a bad run considering his injuries. Next was Martin Drake in 25 flat, who seems to be improving week on week. Next was Eoin Martin in 27.34, followed by Kevin Power in 29.14. Also well done to everyone who took part in the Emer Casey 10k road race on Sunday 23rd of May on a very hot day. Won't call out all the Youghal AC athletes who took part as there are too many to mention which is great to see. It was great to see so many Youghal people running for the first time and if anybody is interested in joining the Youghal AC club all new members would be graciously welcomed. Don't worry if you think you are not fit enough, from looking at some of the finishing times you are the same if not better than us so called athletes in the club (we are only in it for the fun and to keep fit!) Also a big thank you to all the emergency services personnel who helped out on the day, all the people who tried to give out as much water as they could and Jimmy Healy and his team of physio's for the rub down afterwards. Everything seemed to go well on the day, easily known there is a lot of time and organisation put into this as it went so smoothly and it is appreciated by all us runners and walkers. Here are the up coming fixtures: First up next Thursday night 27th of May at 8.00pm we have the Ballyandreen 5 mile road race the first of four of the 5 mile summer series. The following night in Clashmore we have another 5 mile road race at 8.00pm. The following Monday night the 31st May, there is another 5 mile road race in Glanmire. Then you have the Cork City Marathon on June 7th and best of luck to all competing. On Tuesday the 15th June there is the famous John Buckley 5k road race in the Marina in Cork City. That's all for now and just to keep you informed there is another road race to be held in Youghal it is a 4 mile road race and walk (in aid of Marymount Hospice) if people would like to start training now and I will have more details in the next issue.

Veronica is Kerry Rose Congratulations to Veronica Hunt, daughter of Eileen and retired West Waterford garda John Hunt who been selected to represent Kerry in the 2010 Rose of Tralee competition. Veronica from Youghal, Co. Cork is based in Kerry where she is a member of the teaching staff at Mercy Mounthawk Secondary School in Tralee. We wish Veronica all the best hope you have a very enjoyable time as Kerry Rose. Congratulations and Celebrations! For 94 year old Hannah Aherne and her 60 or so club mates the great highlight of their weekly social calendar comes each Thursday afternoon when they catch the bus which takes them to the local community hall in Kinsalebeg for their weekly get together at the Thursday Club. The Thursday Club was the brain child of the Kinsalebeg Women's club - a small local group of local ladies who had formed a social club in the year 2000.They saw a huge void beginning to emerge in the parish for the actively retired. As communities began to whiz by on their busy life styles nobody seemed had time to talk or listen, many people began to become isolated in their own homes especially the elderly. As the Celtic tiger began to roar and volunteerism no longer seemed fashionable it became all the more difficult to generate support for the huge project which this group were about to undertake. In 2002 despite the prospects of great personal financial gain from the many employment opportunities available at that time twelve volunteers headed up by chairperson Margaret Fitzgearld and secretary Joan Curtin opted to give this time voluntary to a more important cause and so the Thursday Club was born. Presently funded by section 39 HSE Grant the clubs initial membership was just ten, with transport to and from the club being a major

issue for many. This co-inside with the formation of - The Deise Link - a bus transport system set up to provide low cost public transport service for people living in rural areas- Looking at how this service would best serve the west Waterford community local bus operators James O’Donoghue and his team Maurice Fahy d. Mason Peter Deady and John Daly on hearing the plight of many people needing transport to the Thursday Club and similar gatherings in other communities met the Kinsalebeg Community group to discuss the prospects and the rest is history. We would like to sincerely thank these men for the wonderful service they provide for our members it is very much appreciated. As membership began to grow so too did the need for better facilities and space and thanks to the wonderful help and co- operation of our Parish Priest Fr Maurice O Gorman who having initially given us the use of the local parish hall for our weekly meetings- now gave the green light to our refurbishment project, which began in 2007. With the aid of grants from Waterford Co Council a fully equipped kitchen and wheel chair accessible toilets were built draft proof windows and doors were fitted. Lotto funding allowed us to install garden furniture and plants for those who may wish to sit out especially our members who enjoy a smoke this is a wonderful facility. However its not just all about the Thursday club the entire community benefits, over the years Co Waterford VEC have very kindly supported affordable classes and courses here for people of all ages. More recently a grant from Waterford Leader Partnership to purchase computers and printers and our first classes are already underway. Having teamed up with the Co Waterford Social Inclusion Group and the Co Waterford Community Form we continue to expand our range of facilities and services available to our members. The story does not end there for the Thursday Club our most recent undertaking is to compile a book - all our members are presently recording their memories and later this year we hope to compile a book which should be available for sale just in time for the Christmas market. If what we have read so far is anything to go by it promises to be a best seller! Last week at the Tower Hotel Ardmore was all about celebrations it is eight years since the Thursday Club met for the first time they have climbed great mountains to get to where they are today. Last November Co Waterford Community Forum and WLR FM honoured the Clubs achievements by awarding them the "overall 2009 County Waterford Community & Voluntary Award". Oliver Carroll and the WLR team from the outside broadcast unit joined us to celebrate our 8th birthday live on air and present us with our award. Our resident musicians and singers provided the entertainment and Aidan and his team provided some great refreshments and a great day was had by all. The Thursday club acknowledged Oliver Coffey's help and support with a special presentation of a beautiful painting by an upcoming local artist April Curtin. On a final note we acknowledge the wonderful work of the Thursday Club team who make it all possible each week Margaret O Keeffe Joan Curtin, Catherine Foley, Colette Foley, Karen Byrne Gabriel Power Helen Collins May Murphy Peg Wickham and Willie John Curtin - thank you all so very much for providing this wonderful service in our community Ladies Football Training Training this week for all age groups on Friday at 6.30pm and on Monday at 7.00pm at our pitch in Clashmore Kinsalebeg Macra On Sunday last (May 17th) our Macra Farm Skills travelled to Dunhill for the Macra Farm skills competitions.

BALLYMACODA LADYSBRIDGE COMMUNITY COUNCIL
SPRING/SUMMER NEWSLETTER 2010
Email: email@example.com | Website: blcconline.com. Who are we and what do we do? Read on and find out more. *** The Draw: Our annual Draw, which funds all activities undertaken by the council is on Wed June 9th in Ballymacoda Hall. Since the council was formed 14 years ago - our major fundraiser has been the ’2 Month Draw”, in view of current economic circumstances it was felt that the 2 draws could put some under financial pressure, so this year only one draw takes place, Councilors will be coming your way shortly . Lines are €10 each or 3 for €20, First Prize: €500, Second Prize: €250, 4 prizes of €100 and 4 prizes €50. *** Ballymacoda / Ladysbridge Villages It is that time of year again –the Anti Litter Competition run by CCC– a time when we become more aware of litter around us and do something about it. It won’t just disappear - someone has to move it, so ‘Become part of the team, Help keep our villages clean” *** Defibrillator Committee This committee has been looking into the best way for the community to set up a Defibrillator facility in each village. Training a core group within the community in CPR and in the use of a Defibrillator, is the first and most important step in the process. Can You Help? *** Parish Concert in Autumn – Have you got the X Factor? Calling all talent, young and older, from all points in the parish, we are looking for performers! Watch the website and posters for more info. WE WANT YOU! *** blcconline.com Our website is up and running. Let family and friends abroad know, it is a great way to keep in touch with what is happening at home. Weekly Parish Newsletter can be checked on line, check out services that are available locally. Advertise any upcoming events. A Gallery of photo is currently been compiled, if you have any old photos please let us know, these can be scanned and returned to you almost immediately. It would be great to preserve these as they are so easily lost or just not appreciated for what they are. *** Community Alert Committee: We attended a meeting with Na Gardai and Muintir Na Tire recently and heard that there has been an upsurge in crime in the East Cork area. Some pointers Theft from Cars: Graveyards, Beaches and quiet car parks have been targeted - Don’t leave valuables on view in parked cars. Take with you or lock in the booth. Agri-machinery: especially theft of trailers and horse boxes. Be vigilant, and if you see something suspicious, call the guards. Timely reminder to be mindful and watchful of your area, not all summer visitors are welcome. Please report any suspicious happenings to the Gardai, take note of reg numbers of suspicious cars- no need for a pen & paper - key number into your mobile phone - your piece of information could be an important piece in the jigsaw of an investigation. Never put yourself in any danger - ring the Gardai; Youghal Gardai: 024 92200, Midleton Gardai: 021 4631324 Gates: Close them – theft of home heating oil is also on the rise, if your gate is closed its harder and not as quick for the thief to get to your tank. – it will act as deterrent. If you are building a new house, consider housing your oil tank, don’t make it easy for the thief. Know your tradesmen, be wary of those with a price too good to be true on a job. Don’t ever let anyone start a job you didn’t ask for. If you feel threatened, go in doors and ring for help or press your panic button if you have one. *** Historical Committee: We have one participant who works for 19.5 hours per week, Under the Rural Social Scheme and administered by SECAD, last year the project of clearing and giving easy access to Bohillane graveyard was completed. The current project is at the small graveyard at Ightermurragh. Work here is more visible, as the high exterior wall is just off the Ballymacoda Ladysbridge road and has been repaired and rebuilt. In the graveyard up to the 1800’s there was a church, in this church were two tombs of the Supple and Pittman families from Ightermurragh Castle. When the roof was taken off the church in 1870, the tomb slabs were removed and brought to Cloyne Cathedral. The outline of the church is still visible in the graveyard. The wall is nearly complete, but work inside is only beginning, seeds and acorns soon become trees in a forgotten area, so there is much trimming and clearing to be done. *** Clean Coast/Environmental Committee: An Activity Day on the beach is planned for June, a day for us to appreciate what is all around us - watch blcconline.com and local Shops for posters. *** Beach Clean UP: Sat 8th May 10am, we were on Ballycrenane, Ballinwilling and Garryvoe strands for our annual Blitz Clean Up, no matter how often we go out, there is always rubbish, some comes in on the tide, more left behind by unthinking visitors, and sad to say more just dumped!. We now have a FAS CE participant patrolling our beaches to help us control the litter levels, which always heighten during the summer months. Another night Blitz is planned for the Ballymacoda side of the parish, watch shops, newsletter and website for info. Help is always welcome. *** Community Alert Committee Over 40 new socially monitored alarms have been distributed in the community, if you know of anyone who is vulnerable and would benefit from one please contact Ml. Brett 087 1278889. *** Night by the Fire (Social Committee) Hope you didn’t miss it … cause it was something very special. Ballymacoda hall was welcoming, the cuppa’s and the glassa’s flowed, the chat was lively and the crack was mighty and that was before the music started! Na Cairde, Andy and Caitriona sat in the corner and from the first chord played, the crowd were in the palm of their hands, Thanks to all who came and helped/contributed in any way to a night of fun laughter dance and song, a night when we raised the rafters from-Paddy McGinty’s goat- to the Old Woman of the Roads- to the unique Bard of Ballymacoda Jack Walsh’s (Big Jack) the Ballymacoda Jumble Sale, to What it might be like to win the Lottoit was a night that will live long in the memory of all who were there! The Social Committee put huge effort into the night and intend to repeat it in the Autumn. *** Community Care Committee/ Na Saoithe: We meet on alternate Mondays from Sep to end of Apr. in Ballymacoda hall, have a laugh, bingo, crosswords, cuppa and enjoy each other’s company. This year one of the high lights was our trip to Aras an Uachtarain, where eight of us chatted and had tea with President Mary and her husband Martin. Our annual ‘Break Away” was spent in Kerry, based in Tralee we visited Killarney, Dingle and it’s beautiful Peninsula, Adare and Limerick and home via Charleville, A little sightseeing, a little retail therapy, card playing, memorable sing songs and plenty of fun – all in all a most enjoyable few days. *** Tidy Towns Committees in Both Villages: Both villages are getting their summer make-over, the long evenings see our volunteers out in the villages. All have a great ‘Pride in their Place’, and give willingly of their time and energy to tidy and enhance their own area.

After some great rounds we had the semi finals and finals up in the alley on Wednesday 12th May. Up first on the night we had the 1st semi final where Ian Ryan was up against John Malone. Ian Ryan won this match on a 2-0 scoreline to book his place in the finals. The other semi had Wayne Fitzgerald against Ian Cronin. Like the other semi it was Ian that won through on a 2-0 scoreline also. The final was a great game as both Ian’s were playing out of their skin. Ian Ryan is a specialist on placing the ball in the front corners and he kept Ian Cronin guessing on his next shot. However, the power and pace of Ian Cronin showed through and he won through on a 2-0 score to take the title. Congratualtions to Ian and all other competitiors!

Congratulations to our u14's who finished third in the county league, next on the agenda is the Imokilly leagues which the girls are training hard for with their coaches Julie Tracey, Mary Fox and Barry Goggin. U12's D League Youghal 6-4 Sarsfields 0-0 @ home to Sarsfields on Monday the 17th of May From the whistle Youghal started off with a good series of play from Catriona O'Keeffe & Emer Farrell resulting in a great point from Shauna O'Connell from the 45 yard mark. Another long range shot saw Shauna scoring the games first goal. The back lines rarely let the ball past them in the first half with Louise Dempsey, Emer Farrell, Niamh Roche, Laura White, Clodagh O'Keefe and Elizabeth Brennan all standing strong to withstand the Sars attacks. Great skill from the half forwards April Arthur, Shauna O’Connell & Aoife O’Neill saw plenty of ball being fed into the full forward line of Erin Glavin, Ciara Crowley & Lucie Sheehan at a fast pace resulting in great goals from Erin Galvin and two from Ciara Crowley. Ciara followed up with another great point and two long distance shots from Shauna O'Connell brought Youghal’s score to 5-4 at the break. In the second half Amy Herlihy was introduced into the forward line proving she was a menace to the Sars back line. Lydia Blanke also created a lot of goal scoring chances. Erin Galvin, Ciara Crowley & Chloe Landers did trojan work to try and rack up a few more scores for the home side and in the end the work paid off with a fine goal from Ciara. The Youghal backs were busier in the second half and stayed strong and composed to withstand the attacks. Niamh Roche & Louise Dempsey made some lovely clearances into the half forward line. Ciara White, Fidelma Flavin and Cameron Smyth,Megan Brophy, Aine Forest & Ellen O’Brien also played a part in the Youghal win on the day.

First up were a classy Midleton side. Youghal held their own for most of the opening period but in the end, they couldn't get to grips with the Midleton lads and lost despite putting up a brave battle. Next up was an away trip to Carrigtwohill who blew the Youghal lads away in the opening period. It was a case of sink or swim and the Youghal lads ran Carrig ragged for the rest of the match. But too much damage was done in the first 10 minutes and Carrigtwohill held on for a win. The best of luck to both Carrigtwohill & Midleton for the remainder of the league, any team that can beat this bunch of lads will go a long way! Many thanks to the parents and supporters for all the miles they travelled all spring and all the support they gave the kids from the sideline. Most importantly, thanks to the whole panel of lads who gave everything ever time they put on the Youghal Jersey. They now know that they can compete at the highest level. Finally, thanks to Cian O'Connor and the Glen Rovers club for organising the Decky Guckian League.

Claycastle Pitch & Putt Club Captain's Prize 2010
memory of the late Barry Kelly R.I.P. (E.S.B. and Ranges). Well done Harry and to all who helped in the organising of this epic quest. The Club Matchplay final was played on Thursday last between Brendan McCaughey and Anthony O’ Loughlin. After an excellent game Anthonycame out on top to claim the Matchplay for the first time in 14 years. The presentation was held at ‘Farrells Bar Summerfield’ who sponsored the competition where a great night was had by all who attended. Result of fourball kindly sponsored by ‘Brookes Supervalu‘- 1st Nett- Seamus Murphy/John Wallace, 1st Gross- Ed Long/Martin O’ Regan, 2nd Nett- Sally Wallace/Ed Long, Drawn prize- James Howes. Colin Sheehan and Paudie O’ Sullivan performed well recently at the St.Stephens scratch cup. Colin shot 95 (-13) for his 36 holes and won the best 36 prize while Paudie won the final 18 with a blistering 42 (-12) where a putt for the course record stayed agonisingly short on the lip of the hole on the 18th green. Gary O’ Sullivan and Johan Brosnan also made the cut. Paudie also claimed the final 18 prize at the Rocklodge scratch cup with a score of 48. Four Claycastle players represented the club at the Cork Matchplay in Collins at the weekend. Martin Keohane lost to eventual winner Thomas Lynch in the first round. Also falling at the first hurdle was Paudie O’ Sullivan who lost to brother Gary in a hard fought game, Gary went on to reach the semi final where he lost to the excellent Thomas Lynch. Anthony O’ Loughlin lost at the quarter final stage to Ray Murphy. All in all a solid performance by the lads but the wait goes on for that first illusive ranking event title. All the best to Colin Sheehan and Paudie O’ Sullivan who take part in the Gents Munster Matchplay at the Parteen course in Limerick this weekend. Next weekend sees Anthony O’ Loughlin and Johan Brosnan play in the Gents National Matchplay. Both players had contrasting fortunes in the draw where Johan was handed a tough task against Tipperary man John O’ Meara while Anthony will be expected to overcome the unranked Anthony Mahoney of the Glenville club in Dublin. An exciting couple of weeks ahead for the club where fingers crossed the first major championship can be won by one of our players.

Our captain Martin Keohane’s prize was played for over the weekend of 16th May. The members were out in force to support Martin who hasgiven years of dedicated service to the club both on and off the course. Martin plays a crucial roll in the running of the club with a lot of his work done unassumingly behind the scenes and so it was right that there were well over 200 cards played over the weekend. The rising star of Cork pitch and putt Johan Brosnan was the proud winner of the magnificent prize. Johan recorded a new course record of 45 (-9) on route to claiming his first major win in the adult ranks. The future certainly looks bright for the man from the front strand and all the hours of practice are now paying dividend. Hot on Johan’s tail was another young gun James Howes, who finished just two strokes back in second place. James won’t have long to wait for his first major success.Results-O/A Nett- Johan Brosnan, O/A Gross- Anthony O’ Loughlin, Gents- 1st Nett- James Howes, 1st Gross- Paudie O’ Sullivan, 2nd Nett- Colin Sheehan. Ladies- 1st Nett- Sally Wallace, 1st Gross- Joy Bryan, 2nd Nett- Joan Hyde. A huge thanks to all who took part and donated so generously to our scramble in aid of Cystic Fibrosis on Monday evening. A cheque for €200 was presented to Harry O’ Hanlon (The Acres) who has undertaken an immense challenge of playing each course in Ireland over a thirty day period in
