Environmental Group Notes

This year the group is planning to support An Taisce's Clean Coast's Big Beach Clean campaign. In previous years the An Taisce campaign had focused on beaches but they now feel as most litter dropped on land eventually makes its way to sea via waterways, we should try and shift the focus inland.

The Big Beach Clean runs form Friday, September 20, to Sunday, September 22. The group will post further details of the meeting Point, time and date selected shortly. The volunteers will be provided with gloves, litter pickers and bags.

Reminder: A WEEE (Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment) cage only for small Household electrical goods and a container for the recycling of fluorescent tubes is situated at the back of the Railway Social Club. It is open on Saturday Mornings between 10.00 and 11.30 a.m., weather permitting.

Camogie club news

Our under-12s had a really exciting encounter with Monageer-Boolavogue. The final score St Mary's 3-01 Monageer-Boolavogue 1-06. What a game in Tagoat. We played into a strong wind in the first half and struggled. Monageer were very skilful and went in at half time with a 0-5 to 0-0 advantage. St Mary's put in a powerful second half and dominated all over the pitch. Eventually we did enough to win with two goals from Caoimhe, a point by Aoibheann and finally a goal by Doireann. What a win. The girls have topped their group. All the hard work by players and coaches paid off.

The under-10s had a fun evening of camogie/hurling with the boys of St Mary's. There was two very close matches and a lot of arguing over who won. It was agreed there was two draws. Well done to everyone who took part and to the referees and organisers.

Junior camogie result. Buffers Alley 4-06 Kilross Gaels 3-03. The girls were in hard luck. They have their heads held high and move on to the next challenge.

Congratulations to the under-14 team who are now through to the shield semi-final. They can't wait to meet the winners of Castletown and Oulart.
