If you would like to take part and have not had the opportunity of auditioning, please contact Mandie on 087 -2102878, as there may be a number of roles still not filled, or if you would like to join the chorus, new members are welcome (over 16), just come along to rehearsals which commence in Carnew National School on Tuesday the 1st of September next.

Me and My Girl is a fantastic musical with music by Noel Gay and revised book by Stephen Fry.The musical is set in the late 1930s and tells the story of an unapologetically unrefined cockney gentleman named Bill Snibson who learns that he is the 14th Earl of Hareford – with action set in Hampshire, Mayfair, and Lambeth. It includes such wonderful musical numbers as: The Lambeth Walk, Leaning on the Lamp-post, The sun has got it’s hat on and of course the title song: Me and My Girl.

Kilrush Drama Group – Summer Play Our Day Out
Members of Kilrush Drama Group are now busy rehearsing for a Summer production, of Willy Russell’s Our Day Out which will be performed on the 28th and 29th of August in St. Brigid’s Hall, Carnew.

The play centres on a school trip from a school in Liverpool to Conwy Castle in North Wales. Mrs. Kay (played by Mandie O’Keeffe) teaches a remedial class for illiterate children, called the “Progress Class” . The whole class – along with Digga and Reilly the slightly older class bullies, (played by Seamus Mulhall and James Gregan) who used to be in the Progress Class – are taken on a coach trip. At the last minute, the Headmistress (Mary J Byrne) commissions Mr. Briggs, (PJ Arthur) the authoritarian Deputy Headmaster, to supervise the trip.
This play affords a wonderful opportunity for Kilrush Drama Group to show off the talents of the amazing young actors and actresses who have recently joined the group including: Eoin O’Donnell and Kate Power in the roles of two young teachers travelling on the tour. Olivia Matthews in the demanding role of Carol (a young troubled girl) also in various roles: Richard O’Toole, Kate Travers, Caitlin Clauson, Anna-Rose Hennessy, Cora Tyrrell, Emma and Niamh Kinch, Seamie Kavanagh, Eoin McMahon, Kieran O’Keeffe, Anna and Roisin Dillon, Megan O’Donohoe, CaoimheCoady .
More of the adult roles are being played by Jose Dowse, Maeve Hunter, Carol Byrne and Mary Doran

Kilcoole 3-8 Carnew 1-4

Kilcoole got their sweet revenge on Carnew on their second meeting in Kilcoole on Monday 27th July. The teams were level at half time with a score line of 1-2 to five points. The second half started lively enough but when Kilcoole’s Willie Cash went on the rampage in the last quarter, Carnew had no answer for him. Carnew who had no subs to bring on struggled to keep up with the pace of the game and allowed Kilcoole to run out easy winners in the end. Thomas Collins at midfield worked tirelessly to get possession and feed into the full forward line. Maurice Sheil at full back had a sterling performance, while Cillian Doyle was unlucky to see his charges go narrow wide on four occasions. Cathal Rooney was also notable for Carnew, along with Colm Patterson. Training every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:30 and full attendance is required if we are serious about doing well in this competition.

Sincere sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Anne Tobin, Kiltilahane (nee Hennessy) who died last week.
