Million congratulations to the Cork Ladies Football team, and all connected with them, on making it a five–in-a-row on Sunday in Croke Park. It was such an exciting match, and could go either way up to the closing minutes. But the then the hunger of the Corkonians came to the fore, they were blind to everything except the goal-mouth, and sealed their victory at the last minute. And to think that only two weeks ago this bunch of beautiful young women, also won the All-Ireland camogie final at the same venue. I hope they get the recognition, and the esteem that they deserve. Congratulations to them again. They did us proud and we are justly Proud of them.

The Fundraising Music Fest and BBQ in aid of LTV2 was a resounding success at Carriginma on Sunday. Light rain in the early part of the day caused a bit of concern, but we needn’t have worried, soon it cleared away and the crowds came out in large numbers to support us. It would be impossible for me, in the time allowed, to list all the people who helped to make it the great success that it was, and in case I’d leave anyone out I’ll have to refrain from mentioning  names .

Everybody’s contribution was needed and appreciated.  They know who they are and each can take a bow , The great thing was that as well as supporting LTV2, the people enjoyed themselves. They enjoyed the food and the meeting with other people from 3 in the afternoon till closing time.

Needless  to say Cork’s win over Waterford was well monitored and the cheers that went up at the final whistle drowned out everything else for that moment. Many thanks to one and all

Some months ago Nellie used her unique talent to write a beautiful song, a Song for Sasha, a special Belarusian little boy , The song is called Thru My Tears and she put it on CD. Following the launch it was played on County Sound and proved very popular. With the help of Family and friends she then went literally from door to door selling her CD and the result was that she had a cheque for the unbelievable sum of € 4,471. 95 to hand over at Sun. night’s function. In the near future Maria McCarthy, Ballydaly & and Joanne Carroll, Coolinairna will make a return visit to Belarus to replace some more Millstreet girls who are already out there.
