Happy 21st birthday Ally
With the euphoria of the Cup win last week, we forgot to wish an important young lady a very happy 21st. Allison “Ally” Cahill turned 21 years and celebrated with proud parents David and Sandra and big brothers Arron and Stephen and friends. We hope you had a good time Allison and best wishes for the next 21 from us all in the community.

Hard Luck to the Glencormac United Under 13s who were defeated 4-0 in their Jako Cup Final last Sunday afternoon. Paddy Merrigan and Jonathan Murray charges knew they were always going to have a tough task against a really strong St Anthony’s team who have been so good all season but the coaches were delighted with the effort the young Glens put in on the day with their never give up attitude. Well done all the Glens and congrats to St Anthony’s on a fine win on the day, they were just to good.
