Bailieborough News. August 7th 2017. Matthew J. Cullen.

St. Anne’s Church Re-Opens:

St Annes Church re-opened on Saturday evening last, August 5th for the first time since June 25th. The closure was necessary in order to remove the seats to erect scaffolding, bring in height access equipment and clear the floors for renovation. The overall project is not completely finished. Work will continue on the Gallery, the Children’s Room, St. Josephs Chapel, The Sacristy, the storerooms, the roof and the Parish Centre throughout August and into September. Some minor works will also require completion in the main body of the Church in the coming weeks.

Because work on the roof over the Children’s Room is not yet finished, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will continue to take place in the Oratory of the Community School until further notice.

Thank you to the Community School Board of Management who gave permission to use the Assembly Hall for Saturday evening and Sunday morning Masses, to Sadie Clarke and May Cassidy for their help organising the weekday Masses in the Community Centre and to all of you for your patience and co-operation since June.

Mybologue Historical Society:

The committee are absolutely bowled over by the turnout and response they have had over the weekend. A strong community spirit and willingness of people to volunteer and give of their time is definitely alive and well in the parish of Kilmainhamwood and Moybologue, the surrounding townlands, Bailieboro, Killann, Maudabawn, Nolagh, Shercock and East Cavan in general! A huge thank you to everyone who turned out over the last few days from near and far to volunteer and support. It is all hugely appreciated.

With your help we managed to number all 337 grave-markers, photograph the inscriptions of all 337 grave-markers, and record in excess of 170 of the inscriptions. This was no mean feat in two days!

Thank you to John Tierney from Eachtra Archaeological Projects for leading the project so efficiently, in sunshine and rain, and keeping everyone interested and involved over the two days.

To the volunteers who took part in numbering, photographing and recording; Eamonn Donnelly, Joe Gargan, Amy Gargan, Carmel O’Callaghan, Lloyd Forde, Tony McCabe, Catherine McCormack, Lil McCormack, Patricia Brady, Bernard McEntee and John Joe O’Reilly.

To those who came along and provided information regarding loved ones interred in the graveyard, especially Patricia Brady, who also gave us great information on the two grave-markers made by her grandfather Jemmie O’Reilly from Bailieboro, Rose McCabe and Joe McCabe and William Daly who all gave information about their ancestors buried in the graveyard.

To T.P. Callaghan, Ultan Callaghan and Matt Donnellan who came along and provided invaluable insight into the restoration works on the graveyard in 1988 and local history of the graveyard throughout the years.

To the many people who called in to observe and chat over the last few days, Fr. John Cooney PP, Kathleen Cooney, Terence Dunne, Vincent Meleady, Justin O’Reilly and many others.

Last but not least, the committee wishes to publicly acknowledge the financial support received by means of a very generous financial donation from Matt Carolan, originally from the townland of Srahan next door to the graveyard, and residing for many years in the USA, which enabled this graveyard inscription recording project to take place. Words cannot express our collective gratitude to you Matt, and we hope you take great enjoyment and pride in what you have helped to bring about in your native parish of Moybologue.

Retirement of Ms Imelda Traynor—St. Anne’s National School:

The staff, pupils and parents of St. Anne’s National School, staged a marvellous celebration on Tuesday morning last (June 27th) to mark the retirement of Ms. Imelda Traynor, Deputy Principal, who has been a teacher in the school for 40 years, effectively all of her teaching career. The day began with a flash dance in the school yard at 9.30am and Mass in the School Hall at 10am. After Mass there followed, drama, poetry and song all in honour of Ms. Traynor. The students performed beautifully throughout and the staff had all the varied events on the morning very well organised. It was truly reflective of the vibrant school community that Ms. Traynor has contributed to so much over the years. On behalf of the Parish Community, we thank Ms. Traynor and wish her many happy years of retirement.

Feile Weekend: Fèile 2017 – What an experience!!!

Last weekend Bailieborough Shamrocks GAA Club had the pleasure of hosting Carrickedmond Under 14 girls (Longford ) and South London Under 14 Boys. What a weekend we all had in St Anne’s Park, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All parents got behind the club and made mountains and mountains of sandwiches and cakes etc and no one went hungry over the 3 days. All players and supporters, mentors, referees and umpires were well fed during our 3 days of hosting even on Saturday and Sunday when we catered for 8 teams on both these days. We can’t thank these parents enough for all their efforts. To the host families we as a club are deeply indebted to you all for your kindness in offering your homes to the travelling boys and girls from South London and Carrickedmond. The feedback we got from all the young players and mentors is that you couldn’t have done any more for them, you gave them a warm welcome, fed them as much as they wanted and for the South London Boys ye let them have long long showers!!!!! We had a disco and BBQ on the Saturday night in the Community Centre and we must thank Fr Router for giving us the hall and our Chefs Karl Daly and Paul Coleman for keeping everyone fed with hotdogs and burgers galore. An awful lot of work went into planning this weekend over many months and we must say a special word of thanks to our Fèile Officers Brian Keegan and Lynda Clarke. One person who deserves a huge huge thank you and a special mention is Orla O’ Sullivan our Child Protection Officer who had the job of making sure all families were properly Garda Vetted and who went about this tough job nice and quietly and without any fuss. Orla on behalf of the club thank you very very much for all the time and effort you put in. Other people who worked away quietly behind the scenes and who ensured our pitch and facilities were in pristine condition were Pat Argue and Ollie Clerkin who ensured the pitches were cut and lined out perfectly. Our Chairman Paddy McDonald and PRO Gavin Mackey along with Rita Clarke and Tony O’ Reilly erected all the signage and bunting and flags and tidied up the facilities in the week leading up to Fèile, again thank you for all your efforts. Also a huge thank you to all who done umpires and linesman over the 3 days, again this was vital for the smooth running of the matches so thank you to the men and women who done these jobs. A massive thank you goes out to the Shamrock ladies who fed 8teams and supporter today (Sunday) in the park. Nobody, player or supporter went home hungry. It was much appreciated.

For all the people who helped out in the shop we thank you all and if I have left out anyone I apologise in advance, it was a huge collective effort from our Club Members, Supporters and Hosting Families.

On the pitch our Guest Carrickedmond made it to the Sunday Semi Finals and our other Guests South London went and won the Division 2 Cup in Clones. This is an outstanding achievement from a hugely impressive team of young boys. They were a pleasure to host as were Carrickedmond. We really hope that these boys and girls will have made lifelong friends with some of our Shamrocks Boys and Girls. Our Under 14 Boys under Kevin McIntyre, Andy Maguire, Kevin O’Sullivan and Tony O’ Reilly were the only Cavan Team to make the Quarter Final of any of the Cup Competitions. We lost a group game to South London our guests and then lost our Quarter Final to St Gabriel’s of Galway. The 2 teams that beat us then went on to play each other in the Final. Our Under 14 Girls under the Guidance of Paul Coleman and Michael Clinch got to the Shield Quarter Final were they were defeated by Cornafean. Again a huge thanks to both management teams and the under 14 boys and girls players and we hope that you all enjoyed the experience of Fèile 2017.

Message from our Ladies Chairman- Karl Daly.

I would like to thank Mags Gregory, Teresa Reilly, Ann Farrell, Patricia McGuirk, Lynda Clarke, Louise Daly, Rita Clarke and Orla O’Sullivan for a fantastic display of teamwork in catering for 8 football teams, mentors, Feile officials, family, supporters, not to mention referees and umpires! An incredible display of logistics and all with a smile and a quick chat. Rest assured that your efforts did not go unnoticed and every person that I talked to were singing you’re praises. I as chairman of the Bailieborough Shamrock LADIES GFC am so proud of you all as you should be with yourselves. We done our club proud today ladies and gents, thank you. Karl.

East Cavan Gaels GAA Club – Hurling News 19th June 2017 Feile na nGael 2017.

What an incredible weekend in Carlow and Kilkenny at National Feile. Full reports and lots of pictures on our Facebook page. A few words of thanks.

Our players;What an exceptional group of boys to work with. Some aged 11 and attending their first ever Feile while some of the more experienced boys were at their fourth. No a cross word between them over the entire weekend sometimes when games were very tough. Their playing performances were incredible and we could see boys growing into young men before our eyes over the weekend. A special word for the younger lads who performed heroics against sometimes much physically bigger opponents and never once let their heads drop. Very well behaved over the entire weekend and are again a credit to our club, Cavan hurling, their families and the local community. You can be assured that these boys have a bright future on the hurling field and beyond. Well done lads.

Our host club; Naomh Bríd Hurling and Camogie Club in Leighlinbridge Co. Carlow were our hosts for the weekend. They went above and beyond what would be expected from Feile hosts ensuring the club will never forget this experience. As we said on Saturday at the presentation event taking the first steps off the bus on Friday afternoon was like walking on air. Nothing was too much trouble and no one wanted for anything. The boys were taken care of to an incredible degree by the host families and we are so thankful to them for that. Our most competitive game of the weekend was against our hosts in what was a great occasion. Even though they got knocked out at the quarter final stage a large and supportive group of Naomh Brid supporters descended on St. Johns Park, Kilkenny, home of famed O’Loughlin Gaels GAA club on Sunday to support us and the standing ovation from all of them while leaving the field will live long in the memory. From all of us at East Cavan Gaels we give most gracious thanks to our remarkable hosts in particular Catriona and Adrian whose work to ensure a great weekend was a huge success. The presentation event, the disco, the food, the food and did we mention the food!! Incredible hospitality never to be forgotten. Please call in if passing the area. It is a most beautiful part of the country with remarkably friendly people.

Our management team; To Pat and Kathryn we give immeasurable thanks for the work put in with these boys in preparation for this competition. Months and months of preparation got just reward with outstanding performances from a squad which had players of various ages and abilities working together to achieve something we never have done before, qualify for Feile Sunday. These things do not happen by chance and we are very lucky to have both as dedicated to the club as we have. Be very proud of your achievements this weekend.

Our support crew; To Jack Barry and Brendan O’Reilly who kept the boys on their toes and ready for action. It is great to have the likes of Jack, one of our senior players, come with us and give the boys the benefit of his experience. It is great to see him give time back to the club and the boys responded with great performances. To Caroline, Joan, Michelle, Des, Anthony, Michael and Miriam we also give most gracious thanks for your time, effort and patience over a very busy weekend. It is the unseen or unheralded work in the background which ensures the weekend is the success that it was.

Our travelling families; Great support from our player families as they made the journey down to Carlow. It is great for the boys to have this level of support for their hurling at home and its events like this that will drive them forward to adult hurling in the years ahead.

Our bus driver; The very capable and experienced Tony who got our crew to all events safely. A very busy weekend for him and again we are most appreciative of his experience and patience.

To everyone; If I missed out on anyone the I do apologise, but we are now officially wrecked from our endeavours! Everyone played their part in making this weekend a success and we are sure the boys have memories to last a lifetime. We will have another new crew of boys stepping up next year and they will have big boots to fill. Thanks to all our fundraising teams who ensured the boys had a great weekend with all their new gear, Training tops, hoodies, tracksuits bags etc. They really looked the part. A lot of positive words from all in Carlow, Kilkenny for our exploits, people were so very kind everywhere we went. A glorious sunny weekend which will be hard to beat.

Now it’s back to the Cavan and Monaghan leagues and Championships and we look forward to Feile 2018 which will be held in Connaught.
