Bailieborough News. April 30th 2018. Matthew J. Cullen.

Mr. James (Jimmy) Gilsenan.

All within the local community and much further afield were very deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mr. James (Jimmy) Gilsenan, 30 Woodview, Bailieborough. Jimmy—as everyone knew him by—passed away peacefully at Cavan General Hospital on Saturday, April 7th, following a short illness.

Aged 79, Jimmy was born in Annaclue, Bailieborough and was the second son of the late Tom and Maggie Gilsenan. In his younger years, Jimmy attended Ballinamoney N.S. and when he had finished National School, he became an apprentice mechanic with Gibson’s Garage, Adelaide Road. During his teens, Jimmy also drove a lorry for Bailieborough Creamery, drawing milk to the Creamery. In 1960, Jimmy and his future wife Betty, moved to England and he worked as a maintenance man on the London Transport Railway Line. He also drove coaches for the Green Line Coach Company and later on Jimmy was a maintenance fitter for the Corcoran and Conners Company in London. Jimmy and his family returned to Bailieborough in 1979 and in 1980, he commenced work as a fitter in Wellman International Ltd., Mullagh, where he worked until he retired in 1993.

Jimmy had met his wife Betty, when he was drawing milk to the Creamery and they got married in 1962. They lived in Essex and had five children together. Jimmy and Betty lived for their family and they were happiest when their children and grandchildren, came a visiting.

In his spare time, Jimmy had many interests, he was a member of the local Fianna Fail Cumann for over 25 years, he could turn his hands to anything and many were the times when he would help out his many friends and neighbours in their hour of need, he loved doing crosswords and puzzles and he also took great pride in the husbandry of his pool of outdoor goldfish.

In the late 1990’s a group of local people used to go down to the then St. Felim’s Nursing Home in Cavan Town and put on a show every St. Stephen’s Day for the residents there. To raise funds for this and other local charities the group used to put on a show in the Community Centre in Bailieborough around Christmas. The centrepiece of these shows were the comedy acts and Jimmy was one of the stars of these shows, bringing the house down with his hilarious and usually unscripted (or script ignored) antics and “mouthfulls”.

A friendly, kind, family orientated and helpful man, Jimmy will be sadly missed, not only by his family but also by the whole local community and all who had the great pleasure of knowing him.

Jimmy is survived by his wife, Betty, sons: Tommy (Maple Court) and Martin (Woodview), his daughters: Kathleen (Drumkeery), Annie (Dundragon) and Maggie (Woodview), son’s in-law, Kieran and Brendan, daughter’s in-law, Mary and Yvonne, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, to whom deepest sympathy is extended.

Jimmy is also survived by his brothers: John (Tierworker), Oliver (England), Raymond (Bailieborough), Alfie (Kingscourt), Dessie (Mayo) Tony (Australia) and sister Kathleen (England), sister’s in-law, brother in-law, nieces, nephews and extended family members.

There was a huge attendance at Clarke’s Funeral Home on Monday evening, April 9th and afterwards, Jimmy’s remains were removed to St. Anne’s Chapel, where the local Fianna Fail Cumann provided a Guard of Honour. Jimmy’s Funeral Mass took place in St. Anne’s on Tuesday morning, April 10th –at which Fr. Michael Router P.P. and Fr. John Cooney officiated—and following which, Jimmy’s remains were laid to rest in Moybologue New Cemetery.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade:

On Saturday afternoon last, the 17th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade took place in the town. On a bitterly cold afternoon, with bits of snow falling, a smaller than usual crowd was present on Main Street to watch the Parade.  Although the Parade was smaller than other years, it proved to be an enjoyable event for young and old.  Mr. P.J. Barry—MC for the event—kept the attendance amused and informed about the various participants in the Parade. Two marching bands took part in the parade—the Corduff Pipe Band and St. Mary’s Brass and Reed Band, Kingscourt. Local sporting clubs, organisations and charities were well represented with some organisations making a very welcome return to the parade.

The Prize-winners on the day (which were independently judged) were, Best Float—Kingscourt Play Centre, Best Comedy Award went to ‘East Cavan Gaels Hurling Club’, the Best Dressed Shop Window went to ‘La Mirage’, Main Street and this year’s new award for Best Club and a prize of €500 went to Tierworker Irish Dancing Club.

THANK YOU to all the volunteers, entrepreneurs, voluntary and community groups, local businesses and anyone who helped out in this year’s Parade, without your help and enthusiasm, there would be no Parade! and despite the Artic weather and other events taking place, you all made it a very enjoyable event.

Moybologue Historical Society:

Dr. Gary Pennington, Professor Emeritus at the University of British Columbia in Canada is undertaking an ambitious research project called ‘Childhood Memories’. For several years they have been collecting stories from people around the world about their play experiences as children. The goal is to compile a broad database of information about children’s play that will be useful to people in many fields. Plans are to make the results of the study available in book form and on the internet. It is an ambitious effort to chronicle the play of youth over many generations and in different cultures.

While they have thousands of stories from people around the world, as yet they have very few from Ireland. To enhance their work, they would like to have many stories of childhood from the Emerald Isle, particularly from our seniors. They invite the Irish public to participate in the project. In addition to contributing to the study they believe that there are significant personal benefits to people who participate. They encourage respondents to make a copy of their completed form as part of a family history record. They have also found that once people have written their stories that small gatherings to share experiences are very rewarding.

Gary Pennington is from Canada with Mulligan Irish ancestors on his late mother’s side. One of his ancestors is buried in Moybologue Old Graveyard and he has attended several blessings of the graves ceremonies in recent years.

East Cavan Gaels GAA Club – Hurling News 12th March 2018

Saint Patricks Day Parades; This year, for the very first time, we will partake in two parades, in Bailieborough, and for the first time, in Kingscourt.

All will be revealed on St. Patricks Day.

Confirmation; Confirmation season is with us again and we wish all our hurlers being confirmed and their families a great day.

Monday hurling; Most hurling fixtures for 2018, be that Ulster GAA, Monaghan and Cavan GAA will be scheduled for Mondays. Nine counties are beginning to use Monday as their hurling fixtures day this year which is a big step forward for hurling development. We expect all our players ages from U11 upwards to be available to us going forward. There will be no Gaelic football fixtures on Monday, as like last year, so we hope many more Gaels who have not had the opportunity to play hurling will now take this chance as there should be no reason not to as Monday will be free from other GAA activity. The dual GAA star is still out there, join us.
