Castlebridge Communiuty Garden grows from strength to strength. The garden not yet in existence two years, was set up by a bunch of local volunteers who are all horticultural enthusiasts with the co-operation of Wexford County Council who leased the walled garden of the historic Nunn's house as a perfect location and with funding and assistance administered by Wexford Local Development. Their most recent endeavour which was a master composting course, proved a great success and a total of 30 other garden enthusiasts and volunteers from all parts of the county joined up with the group. The group would like to thank Cliona Connolly from Wexford County Council as well as Craig, Nuala, Bridin and Dorothy whose professional presentations were very interesting and ensured full participation.

The Bridge Rovers Under 9's had a great win against Blackwater at home in the early kick off with Cian Doyle and Micheal Connors both getting a hat-trick with Michael scoring one from the penatly spot and rounding up with Denis Jackman scoring 2. There was a bit of contraversey at the Under 11`s game at home. Wexford Celtic were winning 1-nil at half time when it was discovered that they were playing with 10 players rather than 9 so the referee decided to make the score 0-0 for the second half and with two minutes to go until the end Dylan Fox scored for Bridge Rovers for the vital 3 points. The Under 13's were playing away to New Ross town who were winning 1-nil when their goal keeper dragged Darragh Malone down in the box and got sent off and Tom Keavney converted the penalty. It was downhill from then on for New Ross. There were goals flying in from everywhere after that from the Rovers. Daragh Malone scored 5, Dylan O'Neill scored 3, Tom Keavney 2 including the spot kick and Evan Carr got one. Great wins from all three teams.
