Community Play Park

Community Play Park

A community consultation evening is being held on Friday night May 11 between 6.30 and 8.30pm in the community Hall. We want to know what people would like to see incorporated into the play park and we invite people to call in and give their own ideas and to see the children’s wonderful sketches and ideas.

There are information sheets available in the church, Clip round the ear and The Village Grill for anyone who has not received one. There are ideas boxes located in The Village Grill and Clip round the Ear and we will be collecting them on Wednesday. We would love if people would follow us on our facebook page at Clerihan Community Play Park to keep up to date with developments.


Clerihan G.A.A. field day will be on next Sunday, May 13 at 1.30 p.m. They will have Bouncy Castles, Pony rides, Skittles, Long puck, Wellie throwing, Underage football blitz and lots more. Admission €5 and kids go free.

U14 GIRLS’ FOOTBALL: Our last match was played in Clerihan last Sunday evening in cold, wet conditions against a very strong Commercials team. Clerihan, short a few players on the night, played with great spirit and determination to lead their much vaunted opponents at half-time. However, the Clonmel side dominated the second half, and ran out comfortable winners in the end by 7-4 to 4-0. Our girls gave it everything they had and they certainly lost no honour in this defeat. We look forward to our next game against Ballyporeen with a lot of confidence. Thanks to everyone who supported our team and who helped in any way on the evening. Derek O’Mahoney gave his customary excellent refereeing performance.


Congratulations to our fifth and sixth class pupils who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on April 20. It was a lovely service, enhanced by a high quality of music and singing. Well done to everyone involved. We now look forward to First Communion Day on May 12.

Well done to Ms. O’Connell, her committee, parents, staff and pupils who contributed to our hugely successful Active School Week.

This is an important stage in our application for the Active School Flag. Guest speakers during the week made a big impression as well. One of the highlights of the week was the very interesting Walk to School Bus initiative.

Many thanks to the Parents’ Association and their helpers who carried out another cleanup of the school grounds last weekend. All this work enhances our school in a very positive way.

Our annual Book Fair is taking place at the moment. Many thanks to Mrs. Fleming, Katríona Flannery and parents for their contribution.

Our soccer and GAA teams are busy at present as the season swings into top gear. The two boys’ soccer teams competed in the annual 5 a-side tournament in Littleton, but despite playing very well, both were eliminated. The girls are due to play shortly.The U11 hurlers qualified for the county semi-final after a facile victory over Fethard in the first round played in Monroe.

Well done to Leah Clancy and Abbie Conran who performed so well to reach the final of a local talent show, Clonmel’s Got Talent.

Congratulations to the Green School Committee and everyone else who helped to obtain our third Green Flag which will be presented to us in Cork on May 17th.
