Hurling Champions

Congratulations to Skeheenarinky National School’s team, who won the Co. U-13 7 aside Cumunn na mbunscol hurling final on Wednesday, June 18th, at Semple Stadium. The team played brilliantly and were a credit to both the school and their trainer, Eddie Maher. Please read Eddie’s account of the match in the sports section.

Gala Weekend for Skeheenarinky School

Fine weather and some energetic team work helped ensure another successful Gala Weekend this year. It was all-go all weekend as the card game, coffee morning, Bingo and Gala Day were all well-attended.

The football matches on Sunday resulted in wins for Kilbehenny in the U-6 match, Clogheen in the U-8 match, and a draw between the Galtee Gaels and Ballyporeen in Ladies’ football. A host of races highlighted the fitness of children and parents alike (see skeheenarinky.com for the complete list of results). The competitions finished with a tug-of-war, with Grague defeating Ballylooby and Killenaule in a serious show of strength.

Special thanks go to all those who supported the weekend’s events, especially to the volunteers who kept things running smoothly throughout it all.
