Ballinascarthy U14 camogie girls have a lot to celebrate already this year having won their Féile in style.

In the first round encounter in Inniscarra they kept their opponents Castlelyons, Brian Dillon’s and St. Fanahan’s scoreless, with the help of goalie Maeve Kingston and some great team displays. The semi-final was v Newtownshandrum and again the Ballinascarthy girls outscored the opposition 8-5 to 3-0 so it was on to the final, played in Castle Rd. and against Grenagh, which proved to be a tougher test but the girls stood up to the challenge.

After a good start by Bal, Grenagh came back and took the lead, but without making any changes from the sideline, these girls turned it around themselves and went in a point up at half time. This really showed their exceptional character and effective teamwork. When they came out for the second half, there was only going to be one winner.

Team captain, Denise O’Driscoll accepted the Féile trophy and what a gloriously proud moment for this fantastic team, whose trainers are William McCarthy, Francis O’Driscoll and Aidan Cahalane. In being crowned Cork Féile C champions, the team qualified for the Ulster Féile in June but with the huge distances to travel around Northern Ireland, it was decided not to take part.

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
