The Dempsey family especially and local parish relatives and friends are mourning at death of both Anne and Sylvester Dempsey of Clongeen after an accident between Larkins Cross and Barntown early last Wednesday afternoon.

Our deep felt sorrow goes to their father Mylie, their brothers Séamus and Noel and sisters Martina and Pauline at this time. The accident unfortunately occurred on the anniversary of their mother Ellen, who passed away seven years ago. Their funeral Mass took place in Clongeen on Saturday morning after 11 a.m. Mass and burial in the new cemetery afterwards. Words can't describe the sorrow for such a terrible thing to be cast on the family but hope that the community can help in any way possible at this really tough time.

Over-35s Soccer

The new time 6 p.m. time for indoor over-35s again proved popular with 16 players on the pitch for last Saturdays big match.

But overall the game was enjoyed by all, especially the Hops, who was on the winning side having scored an excellent headed goal in a competitive second half.

ICA guild news

The October meeting of Duncannon ICA was held on Tuesday the 10th in the St Louis Day Care Centre with 14 members attending. The president Gretta warmly welcomed a new member Rosemarie Butler.

The next Federation meeting will be held on November 27 in Bree.

The candlemaking course on September 25 held at Green Road Gardens, Battlestown, facilitated by Irene Kelly, was greatly enjoyed by the 10 members attending. The morning began with tea or coffee and homemade muffins followed by a demonstration on teacup candle making. Then it was down to business. Cups and various containers were chosen, widths measured and correct wicks selected. Perfume either vanilla or lavender was mixed into the melted soya wax and the wick glued to the base of container before pouring the wax. Then it was a matter of standing back in admiration and waiting for the wax to set. Some being a little more adventurous experimented with colour.

Irene then showed us various ways of decorating tea lights. Tin cans for outdoor hanging lights were decorated with decoupage and designs were pierced on using nails. Other containers were decorated with natural materials such as bark, seeds and leaves and completed with old lace and ribbon. The morning concluded with a delicious lunch and chat. Thank you Irene for a really enjoyable class.

County champions.

Congratulations and well done to the local St Abban's Adamstown junior hurling team that became county champions when they defeated old rivals Crossabeg-Ballymurn by a single point after extra time in an enthralling game played on Sunday, October 29, in St Patrick's Park, Enniscorthy. The teams finished level on.

0-11 each two weeks earlier and were deadlocked again on 2-7 each at the end of normal time in the replay. It was still nip and tuck throughout the extra time, but the scoring power of full forward John Connors with 2-7, aided and abetted with a point each from substitutes Andrew French and Michael Foley and two from Tomas Harrington, that eventually saw them through.

The defensive quality of players such as goalie Paul Cooper, Colm Boland, Mosey Delaney and Michael Curtis also shone through, as did the skill and hard work of the midfield pairing of Paudge Wickham and James Delaney. A good all round display after many years of hard luck and narrow defeats. The newly crowned county champions will travel to Heywood College grounds in Ballinakill Co. Laois on this Saturday, November 11, for a Leinster Quarter final game against Brosna Gaels from Offaly. This match will commence at 1 p.m. and support would be greatly appreciated.

The next Federation meeting will be held on November 27 in Bree.

The candle making course on September 25, held at Green Road Gardens, Battlestown, facilitated by Irene Kelly, was greatly enjoyed by the 10 members attending. The morning began with tea or coffee and homemade muffins followed by a demonstration on teacup candle making. Then it was down to business. Cups and various containers were chosen, widths measured and correct wicks selected. Perfume either vanilla or lavender was mixed into the melted soya wax and the wick glued to the base of container before pouring the wax. Then it was a matter of standing back in admiration and waiting for the wax to set. Some being a little more adventurous experimented with colour.

Irene then showed us various ways of decorating tealights. Tin cans for outdoor hanging lights were decorated with decoupage and designs were pierced on using nails. Other containers were decorated with natural materials such as bark, seeds and leaves and completed with old lace and ribbon. The morning concluded with a delicious lunch and chat. Thank you Irene for a really enjoyable class.

Principal Caroline Delaney said she was a great asset to the school and over the years was a hub of guidance and knowledge to other members of staff, she said Eithne would be missed by all.

Fr Nolan on behalf of the board of management said Eithne had been a great teacher and colleague to the school and he wished her every happiness in her retirement.

Eithne in response said she was so lucky to work in a school where everyone was so kind and helpful, she thanked her fellow staff, parents past and present for their work to help and support children, and in doing so the whole school had been able to provide many activities and extra supports for all children.

She said she will miss colleagues and friends, children and parents but looked forward to a new and different chapter in her life. We wish her many happy years of good health and happiness in retirement.

Congratulations, Adamstown.

Adamstown celebrated Saturdays Permanent TSB Junior 'B' hurling championship final replay success over Crossabeg-Ballymurn in St Patrick's Park, Enniscorthy, as if they had won the senior all-Ireland, and just a cursory glance at this team's recent history explained exactly why.

It was a case of third time lucky for the black and ambers as they lost the decider of 2015 and 2016 to Duffy Rovers and Craanford respectively, but that only tells half the story. The title was earned the hard way, and that cannot be denied.

Adamstown needed a replay to dismiss Taghmon-Camross for that sixth successive District title before pipping Oylegate-Glenbrien by one point in the penultimate round, and the same tight margin divided the sides on Saturday after a replay and extra time.

Adamstown's star man, full forward Johnny Connors, gave them the ideal start with a brace of points inside five minutes, the first from play after a Tomas French delivery. Team: Paul Cooper, James Furlong, Colm Boland (Capt), JP Furlong, Mosey Delaney, Michael Curtis, Michael Doran, James Delaney, Paudge Wickham, Tomas Harrington (0-2), Vinnie Doheny, Tomas French, Shane Bradley, Johnny Connors (2-7, 0-5 frees), Paudge Kavanagh. Subs Shane Wickham for Kavanagh (HT), Andrew French (0-1) for T French (34), Michael Foley (0-1) for Bradley (52), Tomas French for Wickham (70), Kavanagh for Doheny (77), also Liam McDonald, Pat Delaney, Mark Dunphy, Eoin Furlong, Rory Foran, Donal Cosgrave, Stephen English, Thomas Furlong, Eddie Connors, Ollie Furlong, Patrick Roche, Laurence Roche.
