Nordic Walkers head for 'Dying Cow'

KILMACANOGUE'S OWN Dairine Nuttall has announced that Wicklow Nordic Walkers have a day trip planned on 16th November and plan to walk a good stretch of the Wicklow Way in the Tinahely area, ending in a little pub with the glorious name of 'The Dying Cow'!

A bus from Bray will bring walkers to the start of the walk and pick up from the end and return to Bray. They hope to walk a stretch of twelve miles plus. The terrain is not too high or too difficult, so this is a walk for moderate to good walkers who can walk for 4/5 hours. Good walkers are welcome to join the group but limited places are available. The trip will cost €24 and full details are available from Dairine at 086- 1936861

Deepest sympathy

MEMBERS OF Glencormac United FC would like to send their deepest sympathy to Rosemary Rynhart on the sad loss of her mother, Mary Noone last week. Mary passed away peacefully in the care of the staff of Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda and was laid to rest in Duleek last Friday. Rosemary's husband Jimmy gave Glencormac United great service as both a player and junior team manager where his son Keith also played in goal and the loyal service and support the family gave the Glens over the years is never forgotten and thoughts and prayers of the club are with the family at this sad time. May she rest in peace.

Soccer news

MOST GAMES were called off last week but one game that did survive was the U-10 fixture where Glencormac took on Roundwood in Kilmacanogue. Luke Kelly returned to play his first game of the season after recovering from a broken arm and he marked his return by scoring both goals in a 2-1 win. The whole team were excellent on a wintery morning and well done Dean Bradshaw, Eoghan Giles, Dylan Henry, Sam Condon, John Fox, Luke Kelly, Jamie Shanahan and Mikey Doyle.

Deceased members Mass

THE ANNUAL mass to remember deceased members of Kilmacanogue Gaa Club will take place on Friday 22nd November in Kilmacanogue at 8 pm. This gathering is always a great way to be reunited with former team mates and a good crowd is expected to remember loved ones no longer with us.
