Endeavour Award

Coachford Tidy Towns was one of the groups who were honoured recently at a Cork County Council award ceremony for winning an Endeavour Award in this year’s National Competition. The award presented to the group by County Mayor Cllr. John Paul O’Shea was for the huge improvement made by the village committee in addressing the derelict buildings, improving the approach roads and tidying up the recycling centre. The council presented a cheque of €500 to all the groups who were honoured on the night. Presenting the award County Mayor O’Shea said “ Coachford have proven that if you take the initiative in your community then things can change and I would like to congratulate all the people who not only volunteer with the Tidy Towns Committee but also those who help keep their own area tidy and especially to the business owners who are essential in keeping Coachford looking so well. We in the County Council will support you in every possible way going into the future in helping to improve the village of Coachford. Well done to all involved”.

Under 16s win again

Aghabullogue under 16 hurlers have added the East Region A League title to their county Championship title by defeating Killeagh/St.Itas  last weekend by two points. The boys lifted the title in after a hard fought game and for times looked to be struggling after enduring a very long season in both Football and hurling. The team must now face Ballygiblin in the County league final this weekend. Unusually  Aghabullogue wore the blue and white of Cill na Martra for this final and it was strange to see the jerseys of a football club being worn at a hurling final. However some of the team do play their football with the Gaeltacht club so at least they felt right at home. There is no doubt however that the title win will be recorded as one for Aghabullogue and not Cill na Martra  It will be interesting to see what jerseys will adorn the players next weekend.
