Carnew got off to a disappointing start on Friday night 13th February in the Castletown Hurling Tournament. With good individual displays from Dan Murphy, Thomas Collins, Dan Redmond, Maurice Sheil and Richard Greene. Carnew were just behind the curve on this occasion but will take comfort in the knowledge that they know they can play better and may well come back to be in contention for the finals. Mentors ask that all under 12 hurlers for this year turn up for training and make this another good year for Carnew Emmets Juvenile Club.

 Poor Beast in the Rain

was written in 1989 and the setting for the play is a Wexford betting shop on the day of the all-Ireland Hurling finals: “A former Wexford man rekindles lost dreams and forgotten heartaches. But the next day he departs again, this time in the company of his step-daughter. taking her to spend Christmas in Shepard’s Bush with her long absent mother. An interlocking drama. which is rich in the comedy of self-deception reflects the transience of youth and fretful middle age.
