A first litter pick is planned for all estates and approach roads on Tuesday April 2 - all volunteers welcome - gloves, litter bags etc will be supplied - meet at the tree in village centre at 7pm.


The Children’s table quiz was most enjoyable with 15 tables participating. Winners were from Ballyneale, with Clerihan second and a Ballyneale-Grangemockler combo in third place. We thank all those who took part, helped out on the night and the parents for bringing the children along.


The Minor football game against Ardfinnan was postponed due to the weather. The Senior footballers had a challenge game against Clonmel Og which ended all square and six minors played their part in that game. It was good to see Eoin Kehoe back on the field of play after a prolonged injury. Paul Maher and Eoin Kehoe played with Tipperary minors in a challenge with Louth last weekend.

Elaine Kehoe, who is travelling to Uganda to help the underprivileged, is having a fundraising Card night in Ballypatrick Sports Centre on April 3 and would like your support for this very worthy cause.


Wednesday, March 27, will be the second of the benefit nights for Kilcash School. Kilcash Tidy Towns and Kilcash Ladies Club and your support for those three very worthy groups will be much appreciated. 8.30pm start. Winners of the Spring Accumulator were Mary Lyons and Terry Commins with Jim and Helen Geoghegan in second place. Well done folks and sincere thanks to all our regular patrons. Due to the building work at our Community Centre the card season has to come to an early conclusion in Kilcash but the game moves to Ballypatrick Sports Centre on Wednesday, April 3, for a benefit night. It is hoped to continue there for the month of April.
