First Communion Day
Congratulations and the very best of wishes go to all the children of 2nd class in Kilmacanogue N.S. who will be making their First Holy Communion this Saturday.
Months of preparation goes into this big day and we hope the following all have a wonderful day with their families: Abigail Blackbyrne, Josh Cahill, Jack Carey, Erica Conroy, Andrew Doyle, PJ Dunne, Max Flynn, Cara Giles, Conor Giles, Amy Griffin, Madison Hatton, Catherine Henry, David Honan, Liam Lanz Saurez, Jamie McGoldrick, Joseph McMahon, Jessica McStay, Eimear O'Brien, Cormac O'Toole and Michael Prendergast.
A big Calary contingent got their glad rags on and crossed the border into Glencullen to see James Fox and Carla Davidson get married in Carla's local church in Glencullen last Friday.
The locals must have thought the papparazzi had arrived when they saw the amount of photos taken of the groomsmen in their dapper suits with Ed and Des Fox, Graham and Derek Sutton and Philip Connolly swapping their overalls and wellies for dress suits for the special day.
Carla and James were joined by their parents Edward and Margaret Fox and Carl and Therese Davidson, their families and a wide circle of neighbours and friends who partied the night away in the Arklow Bay Hotel with a short diversion into Johnnie Fox's for all the Fox family along the way.
Carla was a beautiful bride and looked stunning as always. Special mention must also go to the couple's nine-month-old son Senen who was looking very smart indeed and never made himself heard even once during the ceremony.
Good luck is extended to the happy couple for a long and happy life together from all your neighbours, family and friends.

In a historic week for Glencormac United FC, it was fitting that they won all their matches over the past week. Most of these matches took place midweek, however one that went ahead on Sunday was the U8s who had a great 5-0 home win over Ashford Rovers.
The Glens started well and almost scored straight away when Tony Prendergast produced a Ryan Giggs-type run but was foiled by a brilliant save by the Ashford keeper who kept the Glens out for the half.
However, the second half was all Glencormac and Bobby Free hit a hatrick while Luke Honan added another two. Cian Redden, Rueben Wainright Smith, Finn Kelly, Megan Bradshaw, Fionn Begley, Tony Prendergast, Daniel Monaghan, Billy Mansfield and captain on the day Ben Morgan were all in excellent form.
The U9s had a brilliant 3-2 away win over Wicklow Town on Thursday night. The Glens trailed twice in this one but fought back bravely to win out by the odd goal. Kieren Griffith scored twice with Michael Prendergast also hitting the net in what was a great team performance by the entire panel.
The U10s were under a bit of pressure to keep the run going but they did with a 2-1 win over St. Fergal's. John Fox hit both goals with manager Karl Bradshaw making plenty of positional changes to get the right balance for next season.
The seniors had an emphatic 6-0 win at home to Saints FC in the league on Wednesday night. Dual strikers Ian Devlin and Conor 'Chicaritto' Finn were in great form with two goals each with further strikes from Kevin Redden and Barry Fitzpatrick adding to the tally.
Ian Devlin was superb on the night in a great team display as they continue preparations for the Charlie Bishop Cup final on Saturday May 17.
