The sporting talent which exists in abundance in Kilcorney N.S. divides its loyalty between Millstreet and Dromtarriffe. This year the green and gold are walking tall.
On the morning of Tuesday, January 13th 2015, the pupils of Kilcorney N.S. waited with unquenchable excitement for the arrival of Mark Ellis and the two trophies (oh, by the way William was coming too). A heavy blanket of sparkling snow enveloped the usual green pastures of Kilcorney and all approaching roads were near impassable. Still it snowed – snow – snow – snow – snow.

A Gala Family celebration was held at the Wallis Arms Hotel on Saturday night January 23rd, in Honour of Dr. Pat Casey. For the past 50 years Dr. Pat has been our devoted and dedicated medic, aided in no small way by his lovely wife Nora. As a single man when he came first, he set up his surgery at the Wallis Arms and by sheer coincidence he treated his first patient there on January 23rd fifty years ago. On behalf of our Community I want to congratulate Dr. Pat and Nora, on their wonderful achievement, Say a sincere word of thanks for their great care over all those years. And wish them many many years of health and happiness in the future.

A further meeting of the Community Council will be held to-night to continue with plans for the Awards Social.
