Fundraiser for the BUMBLEance


Fundraiser for the BUMBLEance – your support will be greatly appreciated

The aim is to travel the entire 105 miles of the River Blackwater from the Source to the Sea. The team of five undertaking the journey includes David O Keeffe, John Murt, Daniel Hickey, Danny Dillane and Denis Rahilly. The six day trip will begin, weather permitting on Monday the 23rd of March and finish at the Quays in Youghal at midday Saturday the 28th. The journey will commence with a six mile walk from the source at Muinganine to Ballydesmond Village and from here the kayaks will be used to paddle to Knocknagree. The canadian canoe will be waiting here loaded with supplies and the necessary camping and cooking equipment for the rest of the excursion. The next five days will be spent journeying the river through Kerry, Cork and Waterford with various stops along the way. It is all being done to raise awareness and funds for The BUMBLEance – Children’s Ambulance Service.

Historic Graves Recording in Drishane Cemetery on Tuesday 3rd March


The annual blessing (pictured above) of the graves at Drishane Cemetery on Sunday, 11/11/2012.  On this Tuesday, 3rd March 2915 a group coordinated by IRD Duhallow and under the overall leadership of John Tierney,  will – under the guidance on this occasion of Mary Hackett from Waterford and formerly of Rathmore –  be doing a very interesting recording of the graves in Drishane Cemetery from 9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. on Tuesday.  A number of days have already been devoted to work on Drishane Cemetery but at least one further day is necessary to complete this all-important Project.   Mary has indicated that LOCAL PEOPLE WHO WOULD VOLUNTEER TO ASSIST AT DRISHANE CEMETERY ON TUESDAY, 3rd MARCH ANYTIME FROM 9.30 TO 4.30 WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.   People interested in participating are very welcome to just arrive on the day at Drishane Cemetery where guidance on helping will be provided.   Full details, if required, from Mary McHugh at IRD Duhallow – 029 60633.    (S.R.)
