BOWLING: The death occurred recently of Brendan O'Sullivan Sally's Cross Kanturk. In his younger days, Brendan was wellknown in the bowling scene around Sally's Cross in the 1940's and 1950's.
A strong and accurate player, he played single and double scores with players, the calibre of Johnny O'Riordan, Denny Foley. George O'Connell, Paddy Dennehy, Johnny McAuliffe and many more players of that era.
A quiet and unassuming man, he w ill be sadly missed by his wife-Hannah -Mary and family, neighbours and many friends.

They spent three great days in Wicklow and visited Powerscourt, Rossboro House and spent some time in Glendalough and the place where Glenroe was filmed.
Some weeks later they paid a visit to the President at Áras an Uachtarán. Here they enjoyed refreshments and along with other groups there on the day they were entertained by Riverdance singer Maire Ó Connell. It was a delightful occasion for the local participants.
The Active Group will resume meeting on September 2nd and new members are very welcome to come along.
ADORERS are urgently needed for Kanturk Adoration Chapel. You are asked to commit just one hour of your week in the presence of the Lord. There's no need for words, just to be there is enough and relax in his presence. Only God can help us to cope with the pressures and struggles of this life.
