During the recent past the St Fintans junior hurling team travelled to the home of Buffers Alley to take on the home team in a junior A hurling championship group B game and despite a 3-10 to 2-10 defeat played some good hurling. The result of the game was in doubt up to the final whistle with St Fintans drawing level with just seconds remaining only for the "Alley" to get the killer goal as the final whistle was to sound.

A much defeated St Fintans team had home advantage when they took on Ballyhogue in an All County hurling league div. 5 game during the past week. The weakened home team could never get to grips with the "hogues"and were soundly beaten when the final whistle sounded.


On opening the most recent meeting of the Ballycogley Players drama group chairman Fintan Murphy asked for a minutes silence to be observed as a mark of respect for the following of whom were involved with drama and entertainment and had sadly died during the past year: Kathleen Hayes and Richard (Budgie) Martin, Kilmore; Tim Coffee Kilmeen and Sean Judge Kidare. May they rest in peace.

During the meeting that followed it was decided to hold workshops for both new and current members in the near future with all interested in any aspect of drama very welcome to attend.

The 3-act play for the upcoming drama festival circuit was chosen and its the Jimmy Murphy penned "The Hen Night Ephipany" with an all female cast. A further meeting will be held to decide on fundraising productions for the early Autumn. Watch this space.
