Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €5800 as on Sunday night Mary Fraher was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 32 which when turned was not the joker but she did win €50.  Anthony O'Loughlin and Maurice O’Donnell won €25 each.  As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar, Abbeyside Post Office and Crotty’s Bar.

Western U21 'A' Hurling Champions

Congratulations to our U21 hurlers and management team on their magnificent 1-15 to 2-10 victory over neighbours Dungarvan in last night's Western Final Replay. We held a narrow 1-4 to 0-6 lead at half time, our goal coming from Seán Whelan Barrett. The second half was nip and tuck and at the final whistle we emerged winners by two points. This is our second divisional title in two years and seventh in all. We await the winners of the Eastern Championship in the County Final.

Sympathy
On Saturday morning last all in our club were left in a state of deep shock as word of the tragic death of Philip Cashin spread throughout our parish. Like all the members of the Cashin family, Philip was deeply involved with the club all of his life and indeed he had played in goal for us in the Western Junior Football Final on Sunday morning last against Kilgobnet.
Being a member of a family so synonymous with our club and living so close to our own pitch it was only natural that Philip played with the club from a young age where he quickly established himself as a fine goalkeeper in both hurling and football. Philip’s brothers both played with the club and his father Eddie of course captained the Club to Senior Football County honours, whilst his uncles all wore the club colours with distinction. Philip was deeply proud of this legacy and was keen to continue on this proud family tradition. The team that Philip came up through the ages with had many notable victories, none more so than in 2009 when they won a County Minor Hurling Championship, by defeating Clashmore in the County Final, making up for losing the Minor Football Final earlier in the same year. In 20012 Philip was again in goal for the under 21 Football team who firstly defeated Dungarvan in a thrilling Western Final, before going onto defeat Roanmore in the County Final. The same year the team continued their progress on the hurling front by qualifying for the Western Final, where they narrowly lost to a strong Lismore team. In 2013 Philip once again lined out in goal for our under 21 football team who staged a dramatic comeback in the Western Final to seal a memorable win against St. Olivers. Throughout all of these successful campaigns Philip was an assured and commanding presence in goal and saved many certain goals, without which the team would not have won as many honours.
Philip continued to play for the club after finishing at under 21 level, playing in goal for both codes and was never found wanting in helping the club whenever he was called upon to do so. Whilst all involved in the club are still in shock at Philip’s untimely passing, our sense of loss is insignificant compared to the heartbreak being experienced by his family and circle of close friends. All we can do is offer our help and support to the Cashin family and assure them that the club will be there for them in the dark days that lie ahead for them. Once again we send our sympathies to Philip’s heartbroken parents Eddie and Jacinta, sister Clíodhna, brothers Éamonn and Thomas and all the members of his extended family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
