ALL-IRELAND WINNERS: Congratulations to Una & Mary Leacy, Karen and Colleen Atkinson, Ursula & Helena Jacob, Shelley & Stacey Kehoe and Ciara Storey on winning All-Ireland Senior Camogie medals last Sunday in Croke Park.
Well done to Una on captaining the side, to Ursula on finishing as joint top scorer in the championship (2 goals 63 points) and to the eight local players who were runners-up in the All-Ireland Intermediate championship final: Helena Jacob, Colleen Atkinson, Shauna Sinnott, Stacey Redmond, Shelley and Stacey Kehoe and Emma and Aishling Moran. Bridget Moran was in charge of First Aid for the two teams and was an indispensable part of the back-room team.
The local G.A.A. & Camogie clubs organised a great welcome for the Wexford teams on Tuesday night. Great credit is due to all the people who helped erect and decorate the stage and the surrounding area.
The next challenge facing the OulartThe Ballagh players is to contest the Co. senior final against Shelmaliers/St. Ibar's, in early October.
Best of luck to Oulart-The Ballagh Senior hurlers in the Co. semi-final against Ferns St. Aidan's in Wexford Park, next Sunday, 26th September.
Congratulations and best wishes for the future to Esther Dempsey, The Folly and Chris McGrath, Castlebridge who celebrated their engagement recently.

Maureen and Jimmy Wade's "Sumobi Kennel" was to the fore at two shows, one international and one national, last weekend. On Saturday, with judges from all over the world, 1800 dogs competed, including Fifi and Susie.
The judge from Argentina awarded "Fifi" Green Star, Best of Breed and her third international certificate. She then went into the sight-hound group against stiff opposition and got Group 3 under a judge from Spain. Susie was naughty and so got no awards! Fifi continued her successful showing on Sunday, under Irish and Portuguese judges, and got the same wins, to complete a wonderful weekend for Oulart and Wexford.
