BRUREE NOTES 4/10/2009


Those thinking of training and further education might be interested to know that an Introduction to Childcare course is being offered by the Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) of County Cork VEC, in association with Ballyhoura Development, will be starting soon in Charleville. The course will run over two days per week (eight hours) for 10 weeks and with core modules in Child Development & Play and Caring for Children, the skills obtained will enable participants to progress to a level 5 qualification and/or to become crèche assistants. The course is funded under the BTEI and is free to those who have not completed a Leaving Certificate, those who are in receipt of a Social Welfare payment and to holders of Medical/GP only Cards. Places are limited and those from the aforementioned categories will be given priority. If you are interested in joining this course, please contact David O’Grady of Ballyhoura Development Ltd. at 063-21008.

Under 14: Our Under 14 hurlers travelled to Ballyagran to play their county semi-final. However, they came up against a strong Feenagh/Kilmeedy side and though Bruree worked hard, they had few answers for the westerners. Bruree conceded some soft goals in the opening half and trailed by 5-3 to 1-2 at the break. The second half was more even but the damage done in the first half was just too much to overcome. The final score was Bruree 2-3 Feenagh/Kilmeedy 6-5. The Bruree team was Ronan O’Halloran, T.J. Mullane, James Kelleher, Patrick Carey, Cian McCarthy, Shane Feane, Eamon Lyons, Jonathan Harris, Darren Kelly, Aaron Fitzgerald, Thomas O’Dwyer, William Howard.

Under 16: Our Under 16 footballers took on Fedamore at Athlacca in the county shield final. In spite of the fact that Fedamore were a strong side, Bruree stayed with them through the first half. Fedamore had a slight 2-3 to 1-2 advantage at the break. Bruree closed the gap to a goal early in the second half but a purple patch for Fedamore saw them score two quick goals. Although Bruree tried hard to get back into the game, the gap was just too wide to overcome. The final score was Bruree 1-6 Fedamore 4-6. The Bruree team was James Kelleher, Cathal Kelly, Aaron Tierney, Kieran O’Dea, Shane Feane, Jack Potter, Jonathan Harris, Patrick McKiernan, Brendan Murphy, Cian O’Connell, Darren Kelly, Eamon Lyons, T.J. Mullane, Ronan O’Halloran.


It has been brought to my attention that rubbish is being dumped in the river Maigue at Bruree. With the water level low after the recent dry spell, the rubbish is visible floating on the river. This is very unsightly in a very beautiful part of the village and is also illegal. We would ask whoever is doing this to please desist.


Lucky dip winners in last week’s Bruree GAA/Rockhill Rovers lotto draw were €50 Moloney’s Bar Lotto €25 Eileen McMahon, Catherine Hynes €20 Ned Cullinane, Francis Kenny, Askeaton, Joan Moriarty.
