‘Fittest Superstars’ launches in Kildorrery

‘Fittest Superstars’ launches in Kildorrery

Following on from the success of last year, Kildorrery GAA are once again staging ‘Cork’s Fittest Superstars’ in association with Clare native, Davy Fitzgerald.

The 2024 event was formally launched in the Kildorrery GAA meeting room last Saturday evening. Davy said it was great to be back in Kildorrery.

“I think everyone really enjoyed last year, the club really got behind it and as a result, it was a brilliant success. Kildorrery comes across as a very progressive and vibrant community, we are all looking forward to more of the same this time round,” he said.

An Taisce National Spring Clean

An Taisce National Spring Clean

A big Thank you to the Beavers, Scouts & their Leaders for coming out to help in great numbers yesterday evening for the Litter Pick and Clean up of the Village and Approach Rds. We were blest with beautiful weather and it was wonderful to hear the laughter and see the fun and enthusiasm they all had while undertaking not such a pleasant task.

Thanks also to members of the community and the Tidy Towns Group who tackled the litter further out on the Approach Rds.

Cork County Council Anti-Litter Challenge Competition 2024

1st Period: Mon 13th May to Wed 22nd May

2nd Period: Mon 27th May to Wed 5th June

Villages County Final: Mon 8th July to Wed 17th July

Anyone wishing to participate in this year's Litter Picking Rota please contact the Community Office at 022-25777. Everyone's help and vigilance in keeping Kildorrery litter-free is most appreciated at all times but especially while this competition is in progress. Dog fowling remains a problem and it is appreciated that the majority of dog owners are excellent in cleaning up after their dogs but we would urge those that do not to become more aware. Thank you for your continued support.

Kildorrery Hilltop Golfing Society

Kildorrery Hilltop Golfing Society

The society will be up and running from approximately March to November 2024. We host monthly outings to different courses, usually in the Cork, Tipperary and Waterford areas. Obviously the vast majority of our members are from the Kildorrery area but we also have members from Mitchelstown, Cork, Limerick, Dublin, Tipperary and Kerry. Membership of a golf club is necessary to become a full member of the Society but the facility is there for non-members of golf clubs to attend as guests on the day and indeed they are most welcome. It is a great way to spend a day among people you know so well and some that you may not be as acquainted with. There's a long summer ahead (Le Cunamh Dé) and we look forward to another hectic year in the Society and hopefully seeing some new faces on the golf course. Willie O'Connor, Secretary.
