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.

Bailieborough Fianna Fáil Cumann hosts ‘Cumann na Mban’ History Lecture:

On 2nd April 1914, over 100 women gathered in Dublin to discuss the role of women in the lead-up to revolution. They became Cumann na mBan – an organisation whose role in achieving Irish independence is almost forgotten. The meeting, at Wynn’s Hotel, was presided over by Agnes O’ Farrelly.

They adopted a constitution which stated their aims were:

– To Advance the cause of Irish liberty
– To organise Irish women in the furtherance of that objective
– To assist in arming and equipping a body of Irish men for the defence of Ireland

-To form a fund for these purposes to be called the ‘Defence of Ireland Fund’.  

Bailieborough Fianna Fáil Cumann in preparation for the 1916 Celebrations are delighted to announce we are hosting an historical lecture on ‘Cumann na mBan’.  Our guest speaker for this event is Dr Mary Aluiffe, Cumann na mBan resource officer and executive member of the Women’s History Association of Ireland, UCD.  This event will be held in the Wesleyan Chapel Arts and Cultural Centre, Bailieborough on Thursday next, the 30th April at 8pm.

This event is open to everyone and your attendance would be much appreciated to this historical event.

Motor racing champion Simon McKinley (34) was a “hero and an idol” to people in the sport, his funeral ceremony was told today.

Mr McKinley’s remains were brought to the Seamus Ennis Centre in Naul village this morning for the ceremony to celebrate his life which was officiated by humanist celebrant Brian Whiteside.

His coffin was adorned with white and red roses, trophies he had won over his prestigious career and his racing helmet.

A guard of honour was provided by his friends from the world of motor racing. They had travelled from all over the country.

His widow Deirdre told mourners that Simon proposed to her in 2012 and they were married six months later.

Their son Rory arrived in 2014. “Simon relished every moment with him,” she said.

East Cavan Gaels GAA Hurling – Club News 27th April 2015

Shane Mulholland RIP

Everyone at East Cavan Gaels extend their deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Shane. In his short time with us he had a profound effect on all he met and coached in his role as Hurling Development Administrator here in Cavan. Only recently he put some of our coaches through Foundation and Level 1 hurling courses while also working with ECG boys who are part of both Cavan and South Ulster U14 and U16 squads helping them all the while to become better hurlers while he also had a significant impact on the county minor squad helping them to qualify for an Ulster final.
We cannot but only imagine the impact of his passing will have on his young wife Vanessa and 8 week old daughter Aishling so we ask that you kindly keep them in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days and weeks ahead.
All local hurling activity will be suspended until further notice.
May he rest in peace.
East Cavan Gaels Hurling Club.

On Tuesday, 10th March 2015, the Fianna Fáil Cumann held its AGM in the Bailie Hotel, Main Street, Bailieborough. In keeping with recent trends, large numbers attended the meeting. This is due to the diligent work carried out by the Cumann members which has seen its numbers swell in recent years.

Secretary – Roisin McDonald, Assistant Secretary – Dessie Connors

On 2 April 1914, over 100 women gathered in Dublin to discuss the role of women in the lead-up to revolution. They became Cumann na mBan – an organisation whose role in achieving Irish independence is almost forgotten. The meeting, at Wynn’s Hotel, was presided over by Agnes O’Farrelly.  

They adopted a constitution which stated their aims were:

– To Advance the cause of Irish liberty
– To organise Irish women in the furtherance of that objective
– To assist in arming and equipping a body of Irish men for the defence of Ireland

-To form a fund for these purposes to be called the ‘Defence of Ireland Fund’.  

Bailieborough Fianna Fáil Cumann in preparation for the 1916 Celebrations are delighted to announce we are hosting an historical lecture on ‘Cumann na mBan’.  Our guest speaker for this event is Dr Mary Aluiffe, Cumann na mBan resource officer and executive member of the Women’s History Association of Ireland, UCD.  This event will be held in the Wesleyan Chapel Arts and Cultural Centre, Bailieborough on Thursday the 30th April at 8pm.
