Under 12 Football League
Carnew 6 –7 Barndarrig 3-4
Carnew travelled on a dark, wet, dreary August evening to play Barndarrig on their home pitch on Thursday 20th August. It was a game that was somewhat spoilt by a greasy ball and a wet pitch saw Carnew come out on top in the end. Barndarrig started well and for the first 10 minutes looked as if they meant business on this occasion. However, Carnew settled down and started to play some good football. When Richard Greene scored his first goal, Carnew pushed on from there and never looked like losing this fixture. Carnew, who were cruising for most of the game, fell asleep late in the second half and allowed Barndarrig score three goals in a short time. Cillian Doyle got things back on track with a great score from a free and was unfortunate to strike the crossbar on another occasion. Most notable for Carnew on the night were Callum Patterson, Cathal Rooney and Shane Byrne. As the season is coming close to semi-final and final stages we need a much improved turnout for training. We have a real chance of success in this division if we put in the effort. Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6.30 are GAA nights.
Kilrush Drama Group – Summer Play Our Day Out
The members of Kilrush Drama Group are set to perform their first ever Summer production, of Willy Russell’s Play with music: Our Day Out on Friday and Saturday night next, the 28th and 29th of August in St. Brigid’s Hall, Carnew. This play is a must for all theatre lovers with some very exciting new talent on display under the guidance of 2015 Confined All Ireland Winning Director, Mick Byrne.
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.
Jose Dowse takes on the role of the brave Bus Driver and on the way to Conwy Castle, the unruly group stop at a shop where they upset the shopkeeper (Mary Doran) and then visit the Zoo, where they infuriate a disgruntled Zoo Keeper (Maurice Ruth).
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 under the expert guidance of Mick Byrne. A Play with Music, the play includes some lovely songs which are performed under the musical direction and accompaniment of Lar Duffy.
The cast includes: 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, Caoimhe Coady, and keeping them all safe crossing the road, is Lollypop Lady (Maeve Hunter).
The Admission to the play is Adults: €10.00 and Children €5.00.
