Division 4 Crawley Cup Round 1 :  Once again a game of two halves.  The first half Currin were in charge gaining two points in the first ten minutes, the visitors missed a penalty shortly afterwards. Clontibret sored one point in the first twenty minutes against Currin’s four, Currin’s defence played well at this stage where the visitors hit the woodwork three times. By half time the score was Currin four to Clontibret’s three. In this half, Currin had one yellow and one red card shown. The second half saw Clontibret taking charge. After ten minutes, they then scored three points within two minutes and from then on played well.

Summary of last weeks news: Apologies to those who attend Mass at Ture, I gave the wrong time a few weeks ago. Mass is at 6.30pm on Saturday.

Bingo: It has been reported that the number of people supporting the Bingo on Tuesday evenings is decreasing to a level that may result in the organisers having to think hard about its future.  It would be a shame if we lost this activity which many people enjoy.  Why not have a chat with some friends and come along some evenings.  9pm in the Community Centre.

Please remember Fr Cathal Deery in your prayers as he has been unwell recently.

Our Village:  I am sure you have noticed that the village is beginning to look smart and tidy again.  This is due to a small group really working hard to brighten up the village.  Everyone can help by making sure that their home and surrounding area is kept tidy and if possible planting a few flowers or shrubs to brighten up the area.  There are still lots to be done why not ask the workers if you can help when you see them. Well done the Few.
