Community Council

An open meeting of the local Community Council took place on last Thursday night. The meeting was well attended.  Funding of the Community Council was discussed and also the maintenance of the Knocknagow Community Centre. The main source of income is the monthly community draw which is to be revamped. Our Community Centre, also contains the local playschool and were anything to cause the Community Centre to be unavailable the same thing would happen to the playschool. Many of those present were of the opinion that quite a number of the parents who have children attending the playschool or had children attending for the last number of years did not seem to appreciate this and many of them don’t support their fundraising which is by and large the monthly draw. People who use the Community Centre should also be aware that the centre is not a public building, and is not funded by the Local Authority. Such charges, as insurance, maintenance and heating are borne by the community council and have been since it opened in the 1970’s.Hopefully, not only the older generation will rally in support.

Due to the All-Ireland Hurling final replay, the South senior hurling final arranged for  last weekend was postponed.  It will now take place after the All-Ireland final replay. Our senior footballers, however, will be in action before this. Our junior hurlers had a big win over Marlfield this weekend in the quarter final of the championship.

GAA History

It seems that the first print of our GAA History will sell out and it is likely that the book will not be reprinted. If you want a copy for someone, don’t put it on the long finger as copies are soon to go to libraries and bookshops.

"And I wouldn't much care for Sierra Leone, If I hadn't seen Killenaule
And the man that was never in Mullinahone,
Shouldn't say he had travelled at all."
