The next Killulta ICA book club meeting scheduled for January in ‘The Bucket Pub’, Ferrybridge has been postponed due to weather conditions. Members will be contacted as soon as an alternative date is arranged. In the meantime enjoy the book of the month which is ‘The truth will out’by Anne McPartlin.


The 2010 series of the local Community Lotto swings into action on January 12. Your continued support of this weekly draw is vital for the funding of local community projects such as the running of the Library premises and the continuing developmental work on the site for the Community Hall.


Among the many events deferred due to the inclement weather is the annual senior citizens dinner and party. However an assurance has been given that this social outing will be rearranged and all will be notified of the new date.


The Club wishes to thank all those who participated in the recent fundraising Race Night in the Seven Sisters, especially the sponsors. Winners of the Ward Brothers Steeplechase were Jack, Adam and Emily Butler. The Limerick Property Services Chase was won by Colm Battles, Cliona McMahon and Josh Battles. Kevin Hogan, Sonia Costello and Tuesday Costello won the Delta Adventure City Chase and Meta McDonnell (Snr) won the Kildimo Food Court Hill Climb. The Peggy O’Rourke Handicap Chase was won by the Masons, Brian, Clem and Mag. There is a wide variety of Club merchandise available for purchase from officers of the Club including leisure and sports wear.


Don Mullane agrees with the adage that ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ and his newly-affianced Margaret O’Rourke of the P.O. is in total agreement. Margaret claims ‘total surprise’ when Don uncharacteristically went on one knee, signalising his commitment to lifelong servitude- which in acceptance of the ring she promises to remind him of for years to come. There is no truth in the rumour that Peggy was standing over him during this event with the instrument she uses to roll out her pastry! Best wishes are extended to the happy couple for their plans to roll out the gold band at a future date- to be announced.


Visitors to the Bleach Lough angling venue cannot but be impressed by the developments in recent times, as are the three hundred plus paid up members. The newly constructed entrance with its electronic ornate gates overlooked by floodlight and cameras, lead on through the new entrance road to a well-developed car park. The Marina caters for forty boats, with eight new ones acquired by the club, two of which are equipped for wheelchair anglers. There are also four new shore platforms one of which includes stable and safe access for wheelchairs. The voluntary efforts of the club officers and members has brought all this to fruition with funding from West Limerick Resources, the National Lottery and Limerick Co. Co. The development of this local leisure resource augurs well for a bumper season and an increase in membership when the Club reopens in March 2010.

Congratulations to Ronan Liston and Barry O’Connell who were part of the Limerick City under 17 hurling team that defeated South Limerick in the semi-final of the inter divisional competition, both occupying the wing back positions. They faced West Limerick in the final. With ten points up and in total control with time ticking away the west boys got a run on them and won 4-9 to 2-14 to win by a point. Also the man with a magnet of a hand Chris McMahon came on as a second half sub and pointed. Let’s hope all get a fair crack of the whip when it comes to the Limerick minor panel that play Kerry in the first round of the Munster Minor Hurling Championship on 28 April in Kilmallock at 6:30 pm.
