TOPS WIN

Congratulations to everyone concerned with the Tops group from Kilmore who again won the South East Tops in Taghmon last Friday night. They defeated a very good Taghmon Group by 2 points. Well done to all.

70TH BIRTHDAY

Congratulations to John Fortune, Ringbawn, who celebrated his 70th birthday recently. A special party for the occasion was organised by his family. A great night was had by all who attended this night.

KILMORE UNITED

The men have kept up their quest to become champions with a 100% record over recent weeks.

The latest victory was last Sunday when they accounted for Courtown Hibs at home 4-1 with Mark Doyle (2), Aaron Goff and Damien O'Leary getting the goals. With 4 matches left, the lads have to beat Stoney and at least equal their results every week to win the league.

The youths are in a play-off final against Campile for the divisional title as a result of a hard earned 2-nil win in Rathnure. Davo Miller hit both goals for the lads who have performed very well to get themselves into the play-off position.

Unfortunately both the U10 and U14 girls were unable to copperfasten their positions in their respective leagues last weekend. The U10's went down 21 away to Bridge Rovers, with Grace Barry getting the goal; while the U14s did everything but score in a nil all draw with St. Josephs. With 2 games left both teams will still claim league honours if they can be victorious in both.

In other games recently, the U10 boys were well beaten by Fastnet, the girls U12 went down by a single goal in Tombrack, the U12 chaps were beaten 4-1 in St. Joesphs while the U14 lads were beaten 4-2 in Crossabeg.

Finally, a reminder of the race night which will take place on April 24 in Mary Barrys. There are still some horses/owners available, just contact any under-age manager to purchase them.

SENIOR'S LUNCH

The committee of Kilmore SCOPE would like to thank all those involved in the monthly senior's lunch in Kilmore community hall which has proved to be an outstanding success.

To the organiser, Mary Younger, and to all the volunteers who help out on the day, a sincere thanks. To the musicians and artists who provided such enjoyable entertainment on a voluntary basis, a sincere thanks also.

The assistance of one and all is greatly appreciated and none more so than from the senior citizens.

Any senior citizen who would like to attend the monthly lunch, please ring the Kilmore SCOPE information office at 053-9175849 or 053-9175523 and leave your name with Catherine or Diane.

SEWERAGE SCHEME

Preparatory work for the group sewerage scheme which has been ongoing for a couple of years now for Bridgetown North, has finally reached the stage of laying the sewerage pipe lines. Work will commence on Monday, April 12 and continue until Friday, April 30.

As a result of this work, there will be considerable disruption to traffic during this period (see advert in The People of March 24). Wexford County council have arranged and advertised the detours which will be necessary to avoid disruption to the work involved.

Bridgetown North residents association met on a regular basis over the past two years and they must be very satisfied with the progress of the scheme which was urgently needed in the area.

CUP FINAL

All roads lead to Curracloe on Sunday next for The Billy Browne Cup Final when All Blacks take on St Josephs with the kick off at 3pm. The players would very much appreciate your support.

WEDDING BELLS

The wedding of Sarah Cullen, Tomhaggard, and Anthony Sinnott, Cleariestown, took place recently. Sarah is daughter of John and the late Mary. We wish this couple many happy years of married life together.

SPEEDY RECOVERY

Wishing a speedy recovery to David Murphy who was injured while playing for the Irish under 17 soccer international team in Greece.
