Students on holidays

We wish all second level students a safe and happy summer holiday from school. When you are out and about on the roads please be safe, and be seen. Wear your high-vis jackets and helmets when cycling.

We wish the secondary school staff among us a restful and healthy summer break too. Bus drivers – thank you.

We are fortunate to have a wonderful and efficient bus service bringing our second level students to and from school on a daily basis. We wish you a lovely summer break too and thank you for all your kindness to our young people on their daily commute.

Cork City Sports

Cork City Sports were held last Friday and congratulations are due to all participants for representing their schools so well. There are a lot more trophies adorning homes in the parish after a busy day in Cork.

A huge amount of thanks goes to all in the two schools Ballygown NS and Killavullen NS who train the children and organise taking them to Cork for this event.

Dumping

Recently people happily gave up their time and energy to boost the beauty of our locality by picking up litter, and recently others have been out in force undoing it. Residents are monitoring their areas and the advice to dumpers is to be careful.

Leaving or throwing litter in a public place is an offence which can result in the on the spot fine of €150 or a maximum of €3,000 if you are convicted in the District Court. It might be financially worth disposing of your waste correctly rather than pay the fine. Stop expecting the good nature of residents who live where you dump, and those who use the walkways for exercise to pick up after you.

If the waste was going to look unsightly at the end of the garden, dumping it on the way to the homes of other people is not kind or fair. Leave nothing but your footprints as you leave our area.

Tom Barry Memorial at Annakisha.

The restored railings will be installed this week, just in time for the unveiling of the monument next Sunday afternoon by the County Mayor, or her representative.

An interesting afternoon (2.45-4.45) of local history and music is promised, focusing on Tom Barry (1850-1904). A brochure on the day is available at church doorways.

Come Walk With Us

Come Walk With Us on Saturday, June 18, in Nano Nagle Birthplace, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bring a packed lunch. It is an opportunity to walk, talk, share and reflect on the path God has marked out for each one of us. It is a Camino type walk with Presentation Sisters and others and is open to religious, single and married people.

GAA club notes

Best of luck in Exams – With many of our minor and young players now taking the Leaving Certificate exams on June 8, we wish them all well, in their endeavours, from Killavullen GAA Club, and the Killavullen Community.

This is the age cohort whose final years in school was disrupted in 2020 and in 2021 is also severely curtailed and restrained. All that change could not have been good, so here’s hoping that they can focus, and give of their best.

Lotto – Last Tuesday night, the 31st, in the community centre, there was no winner of the lotto jackpot. The numbers drawn were 11, 22, and 33. The jackpot on the night was, at €1,500. Next week, the jackpot will be €1,600. The winners of the lucky dips on last Tuesday night were as follows: €50 Emily Walsh (seller – John Beechinor); €30 Colin O’Gorman (seller – Mary Mellerick) €20 Sarah O’Farrell (seller – Online Sales). Purchase your ticket from any committee member or from our website – Killavullengaa.com.
