The two junior hurling teams have made it through to their respective county finals which are to take place on Saturday 9th of October at a venue to be decided.  The first team had a 3-14 to 0-15 win against Crossabeg/Ballymurn in their semi-final match at St Patrick’s Park last Saturday week.

Second team was also victorious over Crossabeg/Ballymurn when they met at O’Kennedy Park , New Ross last Saturday afternoon in their semi-final match on a score of 2-13 to 1-4.  Hopefully there will be a big turnout of local support for the finals, when the first team will play Buffers Alley and the second team will face up to Bunclody.  The minor footballers made their exit from the championship when beaten by the Kilanerin-Tara Rocks combination known as Ballinastragh Gaels in their semi-final match played under the lights at Bree last week.  The winners play Shelmaliers in the county final at Wexford Park on Sunday 3rd of October as a curtain raiser to the senior final between Kilanerin and Castletown.

The u12 footballers took part in the Festival Blitz when they lined out in three games against they lined out in three games against Ballyhogue, Clongeen and Horeswood at Clongeen last Saturday morning where they did really well.  The u12 hurlers won all three of their games in a blitz at Tagoat recently when they defeated Marshalstown, Rosslare and Clongeen.

A reprint of a limited number of books ‘A history of Newbawn’ has just been completed and they will be on sale at €15.00 per copy in the coming weeks.  The history was first produced by former members of Newbawn Macra Na Ferime back in 1986 when it was sold out.  Most copies have been lost, lent, or discard in many other ways since then, so the call for a reprint by so many people has now been answered with all  proceeds going towards the provision of badly need toilets in the Community Sports Ground.

The Pig and the Cow

“Why is it,” said the rich man to his minister, “that people call me stingy when everyone knows that when I die I’m leaving everything to the Church?”
“Let me tell you a fable about the pig and the cow,” said the minister.
“The pig was unpopular while the cow was beloved.  This puzzled the pig.  “People speak warmly of your gentle nature and your sorrowful eyes,” the pig said to the cow. “They think you’re generous because each day you give them milk and cream.  But what about me?  I give them everything I have.  I give bacon and ham.  I provide bristles for brushes.  They even pickle my feet!  Yet not one likes me.  Why is that?” Do you know what the cow answered?” said the minister.  “The cow said, “Perhaps it is because I give while I’m still living.”

Live all you can,
It’s a mistake not to.
