Quite a number from Knocknagoshel attended mass and burial of Con Houlihan's ashes in Castle Island on Friday last. At a packed gathering we happened to meet up with two former fellow pupils of ours at Knocknagooshel school in the late 1940s and early 1950s. They were Donal Murphy formerly of the village and nowadays living in Tralee, and Jack McKenna a native of Gortroe these days domiciled down in Ardagh County Limerick. Donal was a personal friend of Con's as they were both members of the Labour Party.
ST KIERANS ABU
As expected the local district side St Kierans defeated Kerins O'Rahilly's on Saturday evening last at Ballymac to qualify for the quarterfinal of the county senior football championship . After a few years in the wilderness chairman Tom O'Donoghue and his fellow officers have rekindled the the spirit that saw us win out in 1988. And with a kind draw this young side could surprise many.
It is with much regret we announce this week the death of Betty Herlihy nee Cahill, Beheenaugh, Knocknagoshel. Her remains were removed from Dave Leahy's Funeral Home to St Mary's Church and burial was in the New Cemetery , Knocknagoshel. Sincere sympathy is extended to all her relatives and friends.
