Congratulations to Lorraine Scanlon our local Kerry Ladies football star who played a major role for the Kerry ladies on Saturday last in defeating Galway. Kerry have booked their place in the All Ireland final against either Cork or Monoghan towards the end of the month. A win by Kerry would see a third All Ireland medal come to the Mall this year as the Walsh brothers James and Edmond Walsh have already collected two All Ireland Junior medals . This would be a record haul in one year for the home of football. Lets hope the dream comes true.
The marriage took place recently of Fiona O'Sullivan , daughter of Ann and Tim O'Sullivan, Leary's Cross, Knocknagoshel, and Darren McCarty son of Kathleen and McCarty , Douglas, Co Cork.
Presently enjoying a wonderful holiday with his relatives in Loughfouder and Meenleitrim is Maurice Hartnett. Based in London Maurice emigrated from Meenleitrim in 1950.
ST KIERANS ABU
We wish all the best to the local district side St Kierans who play Kerins O'Rahilly's in the county senior football championship quarter final this weekend. The game goes ahead in Ballymac where there should be a record attendance. The Saints have the talent to win this encounter.
Extended Sympathy is extended to the relatives of John Doody , Moonmore, Castleisland, who died last week.
