Leisure Centre News: Mrs Sheila Germaine

Many in the local community were saddened to hear of the death of Mrs Sheila Germaine last Thursday, especially her dear sister, Mrs Eileen Lynch of Chapel Road. Sheila visited her home on the Shercock Road frequently where she regularly entertained relations and her many friends. She also generously and discreetly supported many individuals and projects in the region. Her offer to support a Swimming Pool for Bailieborough, kick started the local Leisure Centre which she continued to support over the years. Sheila will be buried beside her husband Lawrence following Funeral Mass in St. Gregory’s Church, New York on Wednesday 15th and there will be a mass in St Anne’s Church, Bailieborough at 7pm on that evening to celebrate her life and pray for her immortal soul.

As a mark of respect on her passing, the Leisure Centre will be closed on Wednesday from 2-3pm.

A Book of condolences at the Leisure Centre for those who wish to show their respect. May she rest in peace.

  

 ‘Gala Evening’ in the Bailie Hotel

Bailieborough Businesses Association are holding a ‘Black Tie Gala Evening’ in the Hotel Bailie on this Friday evening, October 17th. Some of the reasons for holding the event include—the Christmas lighting system now in place is out of date and need’s complete renewal. It is hoped that the proceeds of the event will be large enough to make a significant contribution to alleviating the cost of €20,000 for this project, which is one of a number of initiatives planned and vitally necessary to restore the Town Centre to its former vitality, and inject a spirit of confidence and hope in our people to achieve success, in the mammoth task that lies ahead of us.

The event—the Association hopes, will bring together business people of all sectors to share their knowledge and experience and as a result forge friendship and ties which could later on result in new business’s being created. There are always opportunities to be grasped and shared knowledge is one way of identifying these opportunities.

As the night itself, it promises to be a very exciting event so why not indulge yourself in a little luxurious relaxation. The organising committee has gone to great lengths to ensure that this night out, will be special and with Sean Gallagher on hand, who knows you could go home with an idea worth a million.

There are still a few tickets left for the event—which are priced at €65 and are on sale in the Bailie Hotel, Supervalu and Bailie Stores.

Opening night on Friday with a reception of wine and cheese.

Jean Smith (nee Sheridan) grew up in Bailieborough and later moved to Lough-an-Leagh, Kingscourt, Co. Cavan.She was a self-taught artist and also attended courses to meet other artists and increase her knowledge.

She was creatively talented from a very early age and worked in Halls Drapery store at weekends where she grew a love for fashion.  As she continued to develop creatively, Jean later became an outstanding dressmaker and curtain maker.  She made her own, beautiful wedding dress that is still in storage and will be treasured by her family forever.  Mother Gabrielle was Jeans Art teacher in School was a huge inspiration and gave her the confidence to pursue what she loved doing.

Her love of painting grew when Jean moved to the country-side of Lough-an-Leagh where she painted local landmarks.  It’s here that she was inspired by the spectacular landscapes and she produced some of the beautiful works of art on display.
Autumn was Jean’s favourite time of the year and she was inspired by the rich bronze colours of the trees and red skies at night.  She also had a strong love of the Irish landscape with its constantly changing light and atmosphere.  Her primary source of media was oils but she also liked working with watercolours and sketching.

Jean always had something creative on the go.  From knitting to sewing or sketching away in her sketchbook.  Her family say’s“It was always such a warm, loving home.  Mum was always painting, sewing or doing something creative, amidst the hustle and bustle of family life.”

Jean’s love for all things creative has had a major impact on her children and she was a huge inspiration to her daughter Niamh who followed in her footsteps and went to Art College to become a Printed Textile Designer.  Her eldest son Niall also inherited her creative gene and is now a successful architect in the families’ home town of Kingscourt.

Jean also worked with the elderly in helping them to find a way of passing precious time.  She loved to help others and everyone around her shone when in her presence.
Exhibition on October 19th in Bailieborough Arts and Cultural Centre.

This exhibition is in memory of Jean who encouraged and inspired her family and friends to pursue their own passion for art.  Her husband Philip, Sons Niall, Philip, Sean, Colm and Daughter Niamh are very proud to host such a strong body of work and feel that they owe this special occasion to Jean who is sorely missed.

Jean will be remembered with great love and affection by all who knew her.

Launch of forthcoming ‘Gala Evening’ in the Bailie Hotel

Bailieborough Businesses came together on Wednesday evening last, when they had Sean Gallagher from Dragon’s Den on hand to launch their upcoming ‘Black Tie, Gala Evening’ event to be held on the 17th October next. The event is unique in that the menu is made up of food sponsored by local companies. All the food on the night is from local suppliers–Bailie Foods, Lakeland Dairies, Terra Ltd, Aine’s Chocolate, The Bailie Hotel, Manor Farm, Farmers to Market, Clonarn Clover, and Yummy Cakes by Alan.

The Association decided to hold this Black Tie event for a number of reasons, The Christmas lighting system now in place is out of date and need’s complete renewal. It is hoped that the proceeds of the event will be large enough to make a significant contribution to alleviating the cost of €20,000 for this project, which is one of a number of initiatives planned and vitally necessary to restore the Town Centre to its former vitality, and inject a spirit of confidence and hope in our people to achieve success, in the mammoth task that lies ahead of us.

The event—the Association hopes, will bring together business people of all sectors to share their knowledge and experience and as a result forge friendship and ties which could later on result in new business’s being created. There are always opportunities to be grasped and shared knowledge is one way of identifying these opportunities.

As the night itself, it promises to be a very exciting event so why not indulge yourself in a little luxurious relaxation. The organising committee has gone to great lengths to ensure that this night out, will be special and with Sean Gallagher on hand, who knows you could go home with an idea worth a million.

Tickets for the event are priced at €65 and can be purchased individually or by tables of 8 or 10. Tickets will be sold on a first come basis and will go on sale on Thursday morning from the Bailie Hotel, Supervalu and Bailie Stores.

Bailieboro Celtic A.F.C.

With the failure of Celtic and Anthony Stokes to qualify for this season’s Champion’s League during the week, it falls on none other than our own Cillian Sheridan as the lone Irish representative in this year’s competition. With his thrilling contribution of 3 goals so far in the qualifying stages Cillian and his Apoel Nicosia team mates have earned the right to join such European greats as Barcelona, Paris St Germain and Ajax Amsterdam in group F of the league.

Starting with the first match of the group in 2 weeks’ time in the Nou Camp against Barcelona, Cillian will be sharing the same stage as Messi, Neymar and co. and hopefully he can remind Messrs O’Neill and Keane that there is plenty of talent out there.

Lines are just €2 and we look forward to the local communities continuing support for hurling. Lines/cards are available from all players, managers, coaches and mentors. Good Luck!

U12/14/16; Our Under 13s were a little unlucky to lose to our old nemesis Lisbellaw, after two periods of extra time, in the Shield semi-final of the summer league on Wednesday last.

Bailieborough News. August 21st 2014. Matthew J. Cullen.

 

Presentation

Sr. Geraldine Carolan from Crossmakeelan, who is on a rare home holiday from South Africa received what she described as a very generous donation towards her missionary work with the Sisters of the Assumption out there. The presentation cheque came from the Dancing for Pleasure committee, who hold a monthly dance in the Community Centre.

She explained how valuable the gift would be on account of the euro being worth about one third more than the local currency out there, the rand.

It was a rare coincidence that the presentation coincided with the Feast of the Assumption.

U12/14/16; Another very positive days hurling, this time from our U14 squad who partook in the St.Feilims Hurling Club blitz today reaching the Cup final. With teams from Longford, Westmeath, Cavan and Limerick this would turn out to be a great days hurling.

The boys started with a hard fought win over Annalee Gaels followed by a good victory over Longford’s Wolfe Tones in the semi-final particularlyafter digging deep to force extra time and points from Jack Barry and Eoin Morrissey securing a one point win in extra time.

On to the Cup final v St. Patricks from Limerick where the Treaty men proved a step too far for our lads but they can hold their heads high as one of the main standard bearers at this age grouping in the county. Fine performances all-round the squad but particularly good from Callum Gorham, Cillian Traynor and Jack Barry but ALL the boys can be very satisfied with their performances on the day especially as we were carrying a couple of injuries and a smaller than normal squad.

Very special thanks to St.Feilims Hurling Club for hosting this inter-county club blitz. These games are very valuable for club development and their forward thinking is to be commended.

A great days hurling.
