Coachford Autumn Festival
Proceeds from the Coachford Autumn Festival will be handed out to four groups next Saturday night, September 29th in O’ Riordan’s Bar Coachford at 10.00pm. The four groups to benefit from the festival are Cork Charity SuicideAware, and local groups; Care of the Aged, Coachford St. Vincent de Paul and Coachford Tidy Towns. Festival Chairman Tadgh Murphy said “ We are delighted to be in a position to be able to donate to these groups again this year. We are extremely fortunate that the festival was so well supported by our sponsors and Patrons. Indeed it is because of the generosity of all our sponsors that we are in a position to make these donations as due to the inclement weather, attendance figures were down on previous years. We are grateful for the support from everyone in the locality of this year’s festival and are already looking forward to the 2013 festival”
Congratulations to the Intermediate Camogie Ladies on their great victory in the County Final last Saturday when they defeated Newtownshandrum on a scoreline of 2-08 to 3-04. This was a huge victory for the girls in very tight match. Aghabullogue battled hard to maintain their lead built up when playing with the wind in the first half. The closing minutes of this excellent game was exciting and had the large crown roaring on both teams. Aghabullogue emerged victorious and arrived home to Coachford to show off the trophy to the supporters. The girls now play Limerick representatives in the Munster 1/4 Final on October 13th.
The John McSweeney Memorial Tournament was a huge success last weekend. The tournament which took place in Coachford saw teams from Rylane, Aghabullogue, Coachford and Donoughmore play off against each other in very entertaining football games. The teams were made up of young and older players and with Rylane having the right mix they went on to capture the trophy for the second year in a row. Both the Camogie team and footballers partied late into the night celebrating a great day of sport for Aghabullogue and Coachford.
