Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.
First things first and today I must extend out heartiest congratulations to our wonderful U12 Camogie Team on winning the County Final on Saturday in Blackrock beating St Fanahan’s in an exciting finish. They came home to a wonderful welcome, and I want to say well done to them and all those associated with the team. They can justly take a bow.
The Dairy Show which has been running here every year since 1982 was again an outstanding success at the Green Glens Arena last Saturday. The annual event brings great business to the town and the crowds come from many parts of the world to compete with the cream of livestock or just to just to see and to meet and to learn. And above all to enjoy. The meeting of like minded people is very important where they can thrash out the pros and cons of the challenges that they meet in a changing world.
Right on the tail of the National Dairy Show we have the Pony Owners Show coming from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th This is a very Family orientated Show, with tiny children riding tiny ponies, a wonderful spectacle for young children to see. Admission is free all the way and the proceeds of the Show goes to Charity every year.
