Burncourt Community Council will host its Annual Festival on the weekend of July 21. This is always a popular event in the community calendar. The running of the festival takes a lot of energy and manpower and an input of extra energy, ideas and enthusiasm whether it comes from individuals or local clubs would be appreciated by the members of the Community Council. People may have heard of the idea “Volunteer for a While” and this is what you are being asked to do so that this annual festival can remain alive. A festival meeting will be held on Friday, June 8, at 8.30 in the Community Hall. Please come along, after all “Your Community Needs You”

Beauty teacher Niamh Walsh from Chic Beauty Salon, Kilworth, gave a wonderful demonstration and with the help of her assistant Emma answered our entire make up questions. Thank to our sponsors Butlers Bar for the hamper, Ollie Keating for the wine, Jackie Dowling, Marian Slattery Butler and Darina O’Gorman for the spot prizes.

The u12s played Moyle Rovers in their second championship match on Tuesday last in Ballylooby. This was a very entertaining game and a very even match, with a draw being the final result. Next up is an away game to Cahir on Monday night. Get well soon to Sarah Halley, who recently received an injury. We hope to have you back soon.

U14s played Moyle Rovers in their third game, and came out comfortable winners. They play Fethard next, in the last round on Friday night in Clogheen. This is their final group match.
