Golden Jubilee

Friday night next, May 24 is golden jubilee celebration evening at the Church of the Immaculate Conception.

Local PP Fr Jim Kennelly will celebrate a special Mass at 8 p.m. to honour the occasion assisted by Bishop Raymond Browne and a number of priests who have served in the parish throughout the years plus priests from the parish who serve in other locations throughout Ireland and further afield.

Kiskeam Brass Band will give a recital commencing at 7.15 p.m. while the choir will be joined by former members, some of whom were there on the opening day.

The organising committee, the Pastoral Council under the chairmanship of Ned Vaughan have trawled through old photos etc to try and ensure that anyone who was a part of the building of the new church and those who served in any capacity at the official opening are not forgotten and that they or a representative of their family for those no longer with us are present to join in the celebrations.

Obviously, its not possible to think of everyone, so, if you or a family member played any role on that historic day 50 years ago, you are invited to attend and afterwards to the Pearse Memorial Hall for light refreshments and a chat.

Tell your family members, tell your friends, its a special occasion, don't put your visit back to the centenary event.

It was a good open lively game with both teams moving the ball fast. Boher had Niall Murphy, again a powerful driving force out of defence and it was pleasing to see John Corkery return after a long lay off through injury to kick over a half dozen handsome second half points.


First: Patsy Breen and Hugh Murphy. Ladies: Betty Biggane and Marie Murphy. Gents: Denis Hickey and Paddy Hartnett, Jackie Moynihan and Donie O'Halloran. Mixed: Dan McLoughlin and Ellen Murphy.

First Holy Communion

The children from second class in Clondrohid Nat School received their Holy Communion last Saturday. A great parish occasion, and the weather couldn't have been kinder. When the ceremony was over parents, children, teachers, family and friends made their way to the new school where for the first time the Holy Communion breakfast was held in the new school hall, a bit of history. Lovely refreshments were served up by the parents' association. Well done to all who helped out at this event. The second class children form Muinfliuch and Carriganima will receive their Holy Communion this Saturday in Carriganima church. We wish them well.


The Active Retired held their first Bealtaine Festival event last Friday night and it was a great success. Thanks to everybody who travelled to be with them to celebrate in song, story, and music. The talent was limitless. Thanks to all in the group who helped in any way setting up the hall and with the refreshments. A special thank you to Teddy Kelleher, who did an excellent job as M.C. and to Peter Lane, who provided the lovely backdrop and the sound systems the next event for the Active retired is Exercises in hall on Wednesday, May 22, at 10 a.m.

Famine graveyard Mass

This will take place at Carraig a Staighre on Monday night, May 27, at 7 p.m. A very important and commemorative occasion in the parish. Mark in the diary.

GAA action

The first match of the junior a championship took place last Saturday evening in Inchigeela, when Clondrohid took on Kilmichael. A match where some excellent football was played, a pity to loose by the narrowest of margins. Clondrohid 0-15, Kilmichael 3-7. Best of luck in the next round.

Clondrohid under-16s have played four league games to date. The first game was at home against Ahane Gaels, and in a game they were always in control and won on a scoreline of 3 - 12 to 0-08. Next match was against near neighbours and rivals Cill Na Martra and with a depleted squad due to injuries and holidays we had to battle right to end winning on a scoreline of 4-03 to 3-04. Next match was away to Ibane Gaels in Barryroe and what a performance the players produced, playing attacking controlled football and winning out at the end on a scoreline of 0-05 to 2-18. The last game was against Kilbrittan in Kilbrittan and in poor conditions the team won on a scoreline of 1-08 to 2-12. We are now on top of the league table on full points and the next match will be after the exams. This panel of players are a great bunch to work with, willing to listen and learn from their coaches and give 100 per cent in every match they play.

A sincere Thank You to Con Kelleher, Fionnabha Metal Recycling for his sponsorship of a set of jerseys for the Junior A squad. Con presented team captain Neilus Murphy with the jerseys recently the club wish the team every success and they appreciate the generosity from Con, and wish him continued success in his business.


Results for May 8 - Jackot €4,200. €70 Noreen O'Sullivan, Bantry; €20 Ciara and Ashling Quinn, Clondrohid; €20 Mark Loughrey, Lactify; €20 Margaret Coakley, Inchigeela; €20 Jessica McSweeney, Carrigaphooka.
