Tir na Nog.

The group met this week for a walk in Ballyhass Lakes followed by coffee and a chat. Please look out for texts during the Summer as walks will be arranged. These, of course, are open to everyone.

Croke Rovers

A 6km fund raising walk was held last Sunday in Castlemagner. A huge crowd turned out on a beautiful day. Croke Rovers would like to thank all the sponsors, volunteers, marshals and traffic management. They would especially like to thank most of all the people that turned out on the day.

Kilbrin Cemetery

As you may have seen the cemetery has been upgraded again thanks to the dedication of the volunteers. A new footpath has been laid which enhances access. We thank Cork county council and the graveyard committee for getting this completed. Annual June prayers will be held this year.

Lackeel cemetery

More clearance work has been carried out in the past few weeks. It is hoped to have it ready for prayers in August with gates and peers in place and old church marked out.


The foroige club has been ran in Kilbrin over the last number of years with weekends away, gatherings and had many events for our teenagers. We would like to thank Catriona and Edel for organising all of these events and for their dedication over these years. They are however moving on and as a community we must decide if we want to keep this very valuable club going. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Catriona on 0871245472. Without volunteers at this juncture this club will cease to exist and that would be a great shame so we would ask everyone to give it your consideration.


We would like to offer our condolences to the following families;- to the O'Connor family Ballyclough. on the death of the late Johnny, to the O'Connell family Banteer & Kanturk on the death of Mary, to the Barry family Kanturk on the death of Geraldine, to the O'Flynn family Milford, and our past Curate Fr. Barry O'Flynn, on the death of Sheila. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.


It was not that long ago that were telling you all to look out for each other in the freezing weather. Well after the longest weather in memory we hope you are all enjoying this marvellous sunshine and we have dust in muddy gaps. It won’t be long now until we will hear the usual suspects telling us that we need a drop of rain....
