Our under-20s had a good win against St Joseph's 2-11 to 3-5. They will play Crossabeg-Ballymurn in the district final.

Our Nursery for four to six years olds is at 10 a.m. every Saturday for six weeks to December 14. It is good fun with lots of games. All are welcome and it is free.

We would like to thank anybody who donated money throughout the year to the club. This is much appreciated and names have being put up on our social media throughout year. We would especially like to thank SuperValue Rosslare, who donated two sets of Jerseys, Fortunes Chemist Wexford Town, who sponsored an adult set of jerseys, PK Tiles Ardcavan/Burrow Holiday Park/Killeevan Investments Consultants/Billy Roche/Roche Group, who all sponsored various teams who won county finals this year. Without these very generous support the club would find it very hard to function.

Hot chocolate and cookies, tea or coffee and home baking will be on sale as a fundraiser for KRH Tops Community Group in a very welcoming Hotel Rosslare, with a roaring open fire and lovely decor. We will host a huge festive raffle, with family games and music. Santa tickets £3 per child.

At our last coffee morning we had Frances Walsh give a talk on positive ageing. This was very interesting and it was great to have such a good turnout and from the feedback it was enjoyed by all.

Our next outing is coming up shortly when a group of twenty five will travel by coach to Dáil Éireann and the Epic Centre with an evening meal in the Ashdown Park Hotel on the return journey. Following that some of our members will join with Piercestown Active Retirement for a day out shopping at Kildare Village and Whitewater Shopping Centre and our 'serious shoppers' are looking forward to the day out with our Piercestown colleagues on December 3.

Our next meeting will be held on December 10 and the following week December 17 we will enjoy mince pies at our February. Before the lunch our AGM will be held in Coast Hotel on January 14 when we hope to see all members attend to elect a new committee and deal with any ongoing issues.

St Mary's camogie club

Hard luck to our minor camogie team, Kilross Gaels, who lost out to a very good Castletown side. Better days ahead girls. The club is super proud of you all.
