Elizabeth and David Fund;

The fund raising committee would like to thank sincerely all who supported the recent Big Maggie Production in St Paul’s Community Centre. The support and generosity of the community was humbling.

Thanks to Clogheen Drama Group for putting on the extra performance at such short notice. We would like David and Elizabeth well in the future.


Deepest sympathies are extended to Sharon Dempsey, Clogheen on the recent death of her mother Mary which occurred in Waterford Regional Hospital. Sympathies to her husband Timmy, son Mark, daughters Sharon and Paula, sons in law, daughter in law, grandchildren, her brother Liam and all her extended family. Following requiem mass in St Marys Church Cahir on Tuesday, She was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery. May she rest in peace.

Fr. Sheehy’s Juvenile GAA.‏

Under 14. A very busy week for Fr. Sheehy’s at underage saw the u14 footballers in action at home to Davins on Easter Monday with the Carrick team running winners by 6-5 to 3-9.

Under 16. The u16 footballers travelled to Clerihan last Thursday evening and played very well in the first half to lead 0-9 to 1-1 at half time. However a very physical Clerihan team proved to be better at finding the net after the break eventually winning out by 4-3 to 0-12.

Under 12. The u12 footballers topped their group in the Premier 12 competition by beating Newcastle by 2-6 to 0-2 last Friday evening. Jane Hyland, Dylan O’Brien and Shane O’ Gorman shared the points in the first half with Kyle Morrissey scoring the goals in the second.

Under 8 . The u8 football side played in a blitz at Clonmel Og’s grounds last Saturday, playing Newcastle, Clonmel Og and Mullinahone. Cian O’Brien, Joseph O’Brien and Cathal English did the scoring while also on the panel were Zane Lynch, Evin Hyland, Rian Riordan, Daniel English, Ronan Hyland, Joshua O’Sullivan, Oisin Ryan, John English, Dylan Keating and Lorcan Ahearne.

Under 10. The next football blitz for u10s is on Saturday, April 28 at Clonmel Og.

Scrap Metal.

It has come to our attention that imposters posing as Scrap Metal collectors for the club have been doing the rounds lately. They unfortunately have been using the names of Club Members from the posters when calling to houses in neighbouring parishes. Our collections are all organised in advance and are coming to a conclusion shortly but please be aware of this activity.

Wedding Bells

Our congratulations this week go to club stalwart James Bulter who married fellow Burncourt native Una Browne on Saturday last in Holycross. James over the past two decades contributed more than most to the Fr Sheehys cause both on the playing field and in his role as Club Chairman. Indeed Una also has more than a passing interest in GAA affairs, she acts as a Club Steward on occasions in Semple Stadium. We wish this genuine couple a long and happy life together.


The Club extends its sympathy to the family of Eilish Keating, Burncourt who passed away last weekend.
