Plans for Villages underway Village Design Statements Consultants undertook a walkabout of Coachford, Aghabullogue and Rylane villages last weekend and gathered a lot of facts about each place in advance of the Public workshops. These are due to take place in Coachford on Tuesday November 6th, Aghabullogue on Wednesday November 7th and Rylane on Thursday November 8th. These workshops will provide an ideal opportunity for everyone in the community to get involved in shaping their area, developing plans for their village, identifying services and planning recreational areas etc. Doug Lucey, PRO said “It is vital that everyone takes part to ensure all our villages can grow and develop in a planned way.
Camogie Munster Championship The very best of luck to the Aghabullogue Intermediate Camogie team who travel to Clare this Saturday to play Quilty in the Munster Intermediate Semi Final. The girls enjoyed a great week visiting all the schools in the parish after their victory in the county final in September but were back to training in the early mornings in preparation for this big game on Saturday. Club PRO and team player, Deirdre Twomey said “ We are all looking forward to traveling to Clare this weekend. We were so thrilled at winning the county and we celebrated it for a couple of days but our trainers insisted that we get back to the hard job of training for this game.” The Camogie club got a huge boost this week when their Under 13 team captured the Mid Cork title defeating Éire Óg in the final.
