Boherbue: Junior 'B' - In what was a highly entertaining Junior 'B' League contest at Boher on Friday evening last, the local side lost out by the narrowest of margins on a 0-15 to 1-13 scoreline.

Indeed, it was a game that Boher should have won but poor decision making and careless passing cost them dearly.

The highlights were in defence where Michael Murphy was outstanding, the welcome return of Brian Murphy to the fold and the accuracy from both left and right of full forward Denis McCarthy.

The game was sensibly marshalled by Jerry Kelleher, St John's who was making his first visit to the capital.

See sports pages in this paper for full match report.

SYMPATHY - The death occured recently of Peter Buckley of Cicarstown. Well known in the bowling world, he served as North Cork treasurer for several years. He was well respected as a player, playing many championship and tournament scores. He was a finalist in the 1988 North Cork Novice-B Championship and also a finalist in the North Cork 1993 Veteran Championship. A gentleman to his fingertips, he will be sadly missed by his family, neighbours and many friends. May his gentle soul rest in peace.

Another bowler passed away to his eternal reward recently, Dermot Breen of Moureabbey. Popular with everybody that he met on the bowling roads, he followed many a score around North Cork and beyond. He enjoyed the chat about bowling and all that was associated with it. The bowling fraternity would like to extend their deepest sympathies to his family, neighbours and wide circle of friends. May he rest in peace John Cummins Competitions-Danny Murphy-4 points. Ned Kelleher-5 points. Aaron Mackey-3 points. Mikie McAuliffe-5 points. Mikie Murphy-1 point. Donal Cashman-2 points.

Western Duhallow

Harvest afternoon

Fingers are crossed that the clerk of the weather will look favourably for the staging of the 21st annual Cullen Harvest afternoon, which coincides with our own local patron St Laithiarn's feast day, featuring old time threshing, vintage display of magnificently and lovingly restored tractors, cars and anyone who has vintage machinery are welcome to come along and join in. No doubt this display of machines used in days of yore always creates great interest. The venue is the local GAA grounds.

A new draw this year is a family 5k road run commencing at 12.30 p.m., entry fee €5 or €20 per family. Back also is the very entertaining and popular donkey derby.

There will be the usual side shows - butter making exhibition, children's sports, bouncy castle, pet dog show, face painting, lucky dip, guess the number of logs, raffles for many other valuable prizes. Plus live music from Cullen Pipe Band and Joe Guerin. Refreshments will be served on the day.

Now in its 21st year, this event still draws a huge crowd where people can meet, reminisce and enjoy the days of old in a relaxed atmosphere. Old friendships are renewed and new ones formed at this event. This fundraising afternoon is both enjoyable an vital to the financial standing of the Special Needs Association. All money raised will be distributed to the various groups caring for our Special Friends.

The downturn in the economy has had a substantial impact on organisations and centres, they would not be in a position to deliver the range of quality services without the goodwill and generosity of local communities thus support for fundraising activities are a valuable and vital source of income, in enabling people with intellectual and physical disabilities live fulfilling lives and reach their full potential.

Huge credit must go to our organising committee and fantastic team of local volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure everything will go well. An event like this does not happen without support and help from the many people who give so generously of their time, by sponsoring, attending, helping, stewarding, food preparation, assisting with parking and the media who promote the afternoon, etc, so once again we call on volunteers to get involved, for whatever amount of time that they can help with tasks to make this the best ever afternoon.
