Each year the family owned Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery organises and hosts the one and only Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Weekend to benefit the Irish Cancer Society and support the fight against breast cancer. This exceptional annual weekend is in its 10th year and takes place from October 6 – 8, 2017. Since its inception in 2008 the weekend has gone from strength to strength and has raised over €81,000 for the charity.

This special weekend, which is set overlooking beautiful Rosscarbery Bay on the Wild Atlantic Way, is a time to chill and unwind with lots of fun, relaxation and pampering, while at the same time fundraising for a charity close to many people’s hearts.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in Ireland after non melanoma skin cancer. One in 11 Irish women have a chance of developing breast cancer during their lifetime. This weekend not only raises vital funds so the Irish Cancer Society can maintain the level of service that is vitally needed, but it also raises awareness of breast cancer and other cancers in women.

Women aged 18 to 80 descend on Rosscarbery together with their friends to remember someone they have lost or they come with their sisters and mums to celebrate getting through cancer and surviving. Throughout the weekend the need for cancer awareness is highlighted as is looking after our health: for us women and the men in our lives.

This WOW weekend is jam-packed full of activities; and the women can do as much or as little as they like, from aqua aerobics to relaxing massages, make up masterclass to wine and cheese tasting, Pilates to long walks on the nearby strands. Other plans for the weekend include caricature painting, dancing, mindfulness, feed your skin, hair and beauty, nail bar, Yoga, Bingo, treasure hunts, stand up paddling, adventure golf and so much more!

There is a special Look Good Feel Great fashion event with expert stylist Joan Cashman who has over two decades of experience from throughout Europe. Joan will host an interactive and fun session, teaching everyone which colours and style of clothes will suit their shape, personality and even lifestyle!

Saturday night brings out the style with a Champagne Reception and a Best Dressed ‘Pink’ Ladies competition sponsored by Keanes Jewellers. Head Chef Alex Petit will showcase the finest of West Cork produce during the five-course sumptuous banquet while Pat Fitz Band and DJ will provide the after dinner entertainment.

Before departing for the journey home on Sunday morning each wonderful woman will receive a fabulous goodie bag as a Thank You for supporting the weekend!

The Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Weekend in aid of the Irish Cancer Society is €195 per person sharing including two nights B&B, Champagne Banquet on the Saturday night, a Mini Facial or Massage and all the activities during the weekend. For further information visit www.celticrosshotel.com.

Submarines, American Sailors, and the Underwater War in Irish Waters, 1917-1918
by Dr John Borgonovo in The Parish Centre, Clonakilty
on Thursday Oct 26 2017 at 8.30 pm

In 1917, unrestricted submarine warfare by German U-boats brought the United States into WWI and created a crisis in Britain. To defeat the submarine menace, an American naval fleet was dispatched to County Cork, bringing about 10,000 sailors with it. This talk will explain the circumstances of this extraordinary event, and how Cork residents dealt with their unexpected American guests.

Dr John Borgonovo is a lecturer in the School of History at UCC. His publications include Spies, Informers, and the 'Anti-Sinn Féin' Society: The Intelligence War in Cork City, 1920-1921; The Dynamics of War and Revolution: Cork City, 1916-1918; Exercising a close vigilance over their daughters: Cork women, American sailors, and Catholic vigilantes, 1917-18; Something in the Nature of a Massacre: The Bandon Valley Killings Revisited (with Andy Bielenberg). His latest publication (with co-authors John Crowley, Donal Ó Drisceoil and Mike Murphy) is the highly acclaimed and magnificient Atlas of the Irish Revolution. In July of this year, he organised a very successful conference on Winning the Western Approaches - Unrestricted Submarine Warfare and the US Navy in Ireland 1917-1918.

Apple Juicing Day in Clonakilty next Sunday Sept 30th. All welcome to bring their apples from 2-6pm to the Clonakilty Community Garden (on entrance road to Clonakilty Lodge).

Volunteers will be at hand to assist in the procedure. Bring along your apples washed; clean containers to freeze your juice (milk/juice bottles or cartons, plastic bottles with caps); clean, sterilised glass bottles to pasteurise with swing caps or suitable for 26 mm diameter metal cap.

A limited number of new 3 litres juice bags that are suitable for freezing and pasteurising, can be purchased for a nominal fee on the day also.

This is a free community event and donations will be welcome to cover costs.
