This Sunday 25th September is World Heart Day and all over the world communities are coming together to walk and support the Heart Foundation in their campagine to raise funds and awareness of symptoms of heart attack especially in men 40 plus and to promote prevention in the benefits of walking.

You can get involved and do your bit by turning up for a stroll/walk with the Kilmore Walkers of a 2 mile (4km) loop, rain or shine on Sunday 25th September at 2pm, starting point is Kilmore GAA Centre. The Irish Heart Foundation trained walk leaders will set the tone with a warm up and together we will stroll out for the 2 mile handy loop. There will also be a buggy push. We will turn right at PJ's Post Office, around the Hill and back to the GAA Centre and cool down afterwards.

Both Mary Barry's and Quigley's are sponsoring light refreshments and a cup uf tea afterwards. Sponsorship cards will be available in the local post office, shops and bars. Please do stop in and support their campaign by turning up and keep your own heart healthy. For more information contact Eileen on 087 9040923; visit www.irishheart.ie/ bigheartwalks SCOUTS

The scout year resumed on Saturday September 17th for beavers and will start on Wednesday September 21st for cubs and scouts in Tomhaggard social centre.

Beavers meet on Saturday mornings 10-11.30am with cub/scout meetings on Wednesdays 7-8.30pm. Unfortunately the beaver section is full for the coming year unless we can get additional leaders to help out.

There are limited spaces in the cub section aged 9-11,scout section 11-15yrs and a new venture section aged 15-18yrs who link in with the County Venture team. We are delighted to welcome two new leaders to the group but with the increased youth membership we are urgently looking for more young people over 18 or adults who would like to do some voluntary work,even on a part time basis.

Registration fees have been reduced to €45 which should be paid over the coming weeks and the subscription is 2 euro per week.We are due to go on the new scout programme over the coming months so it is an exciting time for scouting. For more details contact Laura at 087 9417974 or Breda at 087 6858480.

Another great weekend on the playing fields with plenty of goals. On Saturday our u-9's & u-10's kept up their 100% start to the season hitting Rosslare Rangers & Curracloe for 8 & 5 respectively.

The u-12 chaps were also in rich scoring form beating Cloughbawn 12-1 with Fionn Byrne, Diarmuid Cooney, Anto Kelly, Thomas Power & Jack Deveureux among the goal scorers. The u-12 girls are heading for the finals of the Leinster 7 a-side blitz this weekend after winning their 3 games in their Wexford Qualification group scoring 12 goals in the process and conceding none.

On Sunday the men put in another battling performance earning a draw against a skillful Bridge Rovers team. The lads lead 1-0 at the break thanks to a Mark Doyle peno but Bridge eqaulised from a corner midway through the 2nd half. Shane Cassidy got harshly sent-off near the end and although the boys had a couple of chances to seal victory before the end. With the deal for the pitch purchase now complete, there will be a players meeting this Wednesday in the Hotel Saltees tonight at 8.30pm.
