Our Junior footballers got their championship campaign back on track with a hard-fought draw with Gusserance in Carne on Sunday evening. In difficult conditions they showed great determination to put their poor opening performance against Starlights behind them.

While they will feel it was a game they could have won, the Management team will be happy to get the point. Lets hope they can build on this performance and progrss in the championship.

Our attention now turns sto hurling and we wish the Managment and team well in their championship opening game against Taghmon in two weeks time.

Four hundred and fifteen young people from all over Diocese of Ferns, all members of Catholic Guides Ireland spent last week-end at Carne Holiday Centre marking the Sunset of the Guides Centenary Celebrations.

They had a wonderful time with a great variety of activities which included a trip to the Outdoor Pursuits Centre at Sheilbaggan for the older members. They were also treated to a visit by the Waterford based Coastguard Helicopter Rescue 117 when it landed at Carne on Saturday evening and they all had a good look inside.

Crew members of RNLI also came along and explained their role in sea rescues. The Centenary Celebrations concluded on Saturday night with a camp fire as the sun set over Carne, followed by a Disco.
