Intermediate Football league .Sunday 8th May Carrickmacross 2-13 CURRIN 1-11  This game was played in difficult conditions with the wind blowing across the pitch.  Currin started well getting four points before Carrick scored.  The first half Currin was in control and had most of the play, they could have doubled their score with a bit of luck.  The half time score, Currin led by 8 to 4.  At the start of the second half Carrickmacross came out sharper and got a quick goal. This seemed to change the whole game. From then both teams played well but the passed experience of Carrick showed on a number of occasions, They seemed to have a player unmarked several times near the Currin goal. Both teams played well and the experience should prove useful for the Currin team. The general opinion was that it was a good game and Currin played well.

Best wishes to Mrs Gabrielle Quigley who retired at Easter from the teaching staff of St Enda’s School after 39 years.  She was thanked for the tremendous commitment to the school community over the years.  She has played a huge part in the formation of generations of children as they went through the school system.  Anyone who has been involved with education will appreciate how she must have enjoyed these years and will miss the contact with the young people. The community of Scotshouse wish her well in her retirement with many years of health and happiness.  On Sunday  8th May the community made a presentation to Mrs Quigley in the Community Centre.

Eucharistic Congress:  The 50th International Eucharistic Congress is being hosted in Dublin from June 10th to 17th 2012.  The last time such an event took place in Ireland was in 1932 so this is a great chance for us to renew our faith in Jesus through the Eucharist. The symbol chosen for preparation for the congress is the Bell.  We are familiar with the bell ringing in our churches as a means of calling people to prayer.  The Eucharistic Congress Bell is being brought to every diocese in the country.  In Clogher the Bell will be here from the 9th May until the 17th. It will visit our parish this Friday from 1.00pm to 5.0pm. It is hoped to be in three schools in the parish.  More information on the Eucharist Congress can be got at www.iec2012

Charity Night:  There will be a Charity Night in the Community Centre on Saturday 28th May at 9.0pm
Keep this evening Free.  More details next week.
