Active Retired Group
A meeting to set up a Retired Active Group in Clondrohid took place in the Community Hall on Monday, September 25. Over 40 turned up to meeting which made it a resounding success. Louise Bourke of IRD Duhallow chaired the meeting and gave an excellent account of all the activities of IRD in Newmarket. With such a large attendance it was an excellent launching pad to hear of all these activities as places like Clondrohid, Carriganima Macroom Ballinagree etc. are now in the Duhallow catchment area for leader funding, etc.
Jack Roche of IRD spoke passionately of Rural Ireland trying to retain its identity and to stand up and be counted. Speakers from the Active Retirement Southern region and from various clubs, Donoughmore, Castlemagner etc spoke with passion of what being involved in this group has meant to them. Being active in your club means different things to different people. It could be just meeting up for a cuppa and a chat to organising a trip away.
Loneliness was one of the key reasons for people to join. Bringing relevant people into your meeting to help you with questions to ask at your doctor appointments, to making a will and what that entails. Keeping it simple to start with and it will grow. Meeting up with other groups and joining them on trips was recommended. There are 24,000 people involved in 550 organisations in nine regions. There are 50 in Cork and 30 in Kerry.
On the night the following were elected. Chair. Maurice Manning, Sec. Catherine Kelleher, treasurer Sheila Walsh, PRO. Ann O'Connell. Committee members, Teresa McSweeney, Margaret Buckley, Denis Lucey, Teresa Twomey, Maria Healy.
A follow up meeting was held on Monday, October 2, and another large crowd attended, which all looks well for the group. Anna O'Mahony was elected as Asst. Treasurer. Lots of ideas were discussed, and it's the intention of the group to meet in hall or Tavern around 10 a.m. on Wednesday, October 11, for a cuppa and a chat, where more ideas will be discussed. The group is formed, a name to be discussed, and hopefully it will grow and blossom and everyone will benefit from it.

JB FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP COUNTY PLAYOFF - Grange 1-7 Clyda Rovers 0-8: A week after winning the Avondhu Junior B2 Football championship Clyda bowed out of the county, with Grange winning by 1-7 to 0-8.
Clyda got off to a positive start with full forward Tim Buckley scoring a neat point in the opening minute. But Grange hit back strongly with 1-3 in succession before Adam Walsh got Clyda back in the game with a well taken free, 1-3 to 0-2. Grange then extended the lead before two Conor Crowley frees narrowed the gap to 1-5 to 0-4 at the break.
Driven on by the outstanding Gavin Carey, an improved Clyda were in the ascendancy in the third quarter. Adam Walsh and Conor Crowley (free) were again on target before Kyle Crowley kicked over an outstanding point, leaving Grange leading 1-5 to 0-7 with 10 minutes remaining. Grange then hit two great scores before a late Conor Crowley free again narrowed the gap. Clyda went in the hunt of a late goal, but it wasn't to be as Grange held on for an impressive 1-7 to 0-8 victory.
And so the curtain was brought down on Clyda's adult teams in the 2017 championship campaign. Credit must go to Junior B team manager Billy Mulcahy, coach Colie Lane and selectors Noel Walsh and Niall Cronin for all their hard work during the year.
