No previous hurling experience is required and we provide the equipment while you “give it a go!” Some of the greatest ever hurlers started late, Sean Og O’Halpin was 14 years old before he started playing hurling and Henry Shefflin, probably the greatest ever hurler, started out as a goalie! If you are interested in hurling then we have a team for you. Come to one of our registration nights and speak to members of the coaching team and see if hurling could be the game for you.

Bailieborough News Thursday 28th May 2015

Bailieborough News. May 28th 2015. Matthew J. Cullen.

Bailieborough Tidy Towns calls it a day with a Final Lake Project:

Due to a serious lack of interest shown by Local Businesses/ Community of Bailieborough, the Tidy Towns Committee regrets that it must call it a Final Day. Please understand the reason why our small voluntary committee cannot continue and the impact this may have on the image of our Town with a risk of excessive litter and weeds appearing on our streets and no display of Flowers or Hanging Baskets to welcome visitors or tourists to our town.

It is very disappointing that our town may no longer remain the ‘Pride of Place’—that it deserves. Only time will tell the real impact this will have on our town and unfortunately the evidence already exists!

The committee together with Rose McCabe, Sadie/Bobby Gray and Sean O’Reilly sincerely thank its loyal volunteers and sponsors for supporting their work over the last 12 years. This is a sad time for all and the committee wishes the town all the best in the future.

As a farewell to you all, the committee hope to undertake one final project that will help enhance the recreational space at the front of the Town Lake. The completion date is set for July 2015. And the committee would greatly appreciate your support when fundraising for the project.

Please remember, we all have a responsibility to care for our Town.

Town Lake Clean-Up:

The Irish Wildlife Trust Cavan branch would like to sincerely thank all the nature lovers who turned out on Saturday morning last for the Bailieborough Town Lake Big Clean-Up. The clean-up was in response to the multiple incidences of bird injuries and deaths occurring over the past couple of months, with the latest injury, which affected the crooked neck swan, attributed to the unfortunate ignorance of some individuals who carelessly leave behind fishing lines and hooks which animals ensnare themselves in and can suffer a prolonged and painful death.
As a result of the clean-up we have recovered hundreds of metres of fishing line and numerous barbed hooks from the lake. And we also sadly recovered 20 black refuse sacks full of rubbish from the perimeter of the lake which is also a testament to people’s ignorance to their own natural environment. Hundreds of discarded bottles and cans were collected. If only people knew that one bottle has the potential to kill hundreds of small mammals over many years, as the mammals, once they climb into a bottle, cannot get back out because of the slippery surface, and they die of starvation.
We would like to thank everyone who came out on the day, especially Vincent McCormack who volunteered his time and boat so that we could retrieve the waste from the lake. Also Ian and Elaine Gough who came from Mullagh, Liz McKenna from BirdWatch Ireland and Peter McConnell and Bertha Waller for taking the photos. If there is anything we have learned from this incident it is that we, as humans, need to apportion more effort within our lives to the welfare and respect of the natural environment. After all, without it, where would we be?

Bailieborough Celtic A.F.C.: Under 15’s complete the Double in Style:

Bailieboro Celtic 4 – 0 Kingscourt. A dry but blustery day for the Cup Final held in the M.D.L. Bailieboro got off to a strong start against the wind and took the game to Kingscourt. The first goal came after 10 mins with a cross sung in from the right wing by Ryan Lennon.
Callum Clarke got the ball under control in the box, beat his man and
finished coolly. That helped to settle the nerves. Kingscourt applied more
pressure and used the wind to their advantage, however the defence stood
strong with solid performances from Seosamh Sheerin and Jack Barry.
In the 2nd half, Bailieboro pushed on and scored two quick goals with an
excellent 20 meter strike by Scott Prendergast followed by a well worked
goal down the left wing with a low driving cross across the goals which was
turned in by Sean Obuseng. The fourth goal came with about 20 mins
remaining which was a brilliant individual goal by Cillian Traynor. He
picked up the ball on the right wing inside the opposition half beating
three players before cutting back in on his left foot to slot it past the
keeper.
Bailieboro carried on working to the end, with a Man of the Match
performance from Seanie Keoghan and a captain’s role played by Matthew
Traynor. The game was played with great sportsmanship and a good spirit by both teams. It was a great win and a well-deserved League and Cup double. The first for this team.
Congratulations to all the players, coaches and parents—it was a great way to
end the season.
