Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News


Questions Answered In Exciting Quiz Night

Which is larger, the Pacific or Atlantic Ocean? How many balls are bowled in an over in cricket? These and 78 other questions were the focus of the attention of over 150 primary school children at the third Annual Primary Schools Quiz held in Killeagh Community Centre on March 14th last. Organised by Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Club, the quiz serves two purposes – a fun night out for the many children from our parish schools and other local schools (Castlemartyr, Kilcredan, Clonpriest, Bunscoil Eochaille) who were represented on the night, and a fundraiser for the club and one local charity. This year the chosen charity was the Killeagh-Inch Defibrillator Group, a sub-committee of Killeagh-Inch Community Council, who have placed defibrillators throughout the parish over the past four years. As a result of this event, the group will be close to having the funds to purchase another defibrillator or provide necessary training to more within our community. With 37 teams entered, space was at a premium, and the noise level was quite high at times! Nevertheless, when it was eyes down and time to knock heads together to find those answers and beat the clock, concentration levels went up as the noise levels went down! Ag deireadh an oÍche, bhí buaiteorí againn. Castlemartyr NS, going for a three-in-a-row, were beaten on the line by Kilcredan NS, whose team of Eoghan Rooney, Grace Rooney, Avril Millerick and Michael Wall completed eight rounds of ten questions with a staggering score of 74/80, one ahead of the Castlemartyr team, who were one ahead in turn of a second Kilcredan quartet. Best placed of the Killeagh parish teams were Inch NS, in fourth place with 70 points. Many thanks to all those who supported the event on the night, to those who helped in any way to ensure that it ran smoothly, and to the members of Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile Club and the Killeagh-Inch Defibrillator Group for their assistance in planning, organising and running the event. We’ll go again in March 2017!


Healthy Club Project – time to get up and running!

Following the fantastic success of the first ever Killeagh 4 miles Road Race on March 13th, Killeagh GAA have now taken on another innovative venture, again with some additional help. GAA Headquarters in Croke Park, through their National Health and Wellbeing Committee, recently sought applications from clubs in all 32 counties to participate in Phase 2 of the National Healthy Club Project. With only 50 clubs to be selected, the competition was going to be tough. In a creative and inclusive move, Killeagh GAA sought the support of its three sister clubs who share its facilities in Páirc Uí Chinnéide – Killeagh Camogie Club, Inch Rovers Ladies Football Club, and Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Club – in applying to be selected for this Project. Good news came through at the end of February that our application was successful and that we have been included. This should mean lots of exciting initiatives happening in Páirc Uí Chinnéide and elsewhere in our community over the next eighteen months, with the focus on all aspects of health and wellbeing – physical, emotional and community. Already representatives from each of the four clubs have come together for a night of training on “Health and Wellbeing” delivered by the Cork GAA Health and Wellbeing Committee. The next step now is to formally get this Project up and running in our community. With this in mind, an Open Meeting will take place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Friday April 8th at 8.00 p.m. This meeting is open to members of all four clubs, but also we want to extend an open invitation to those in our community who are not affiliated with any of the four clubs but who have an interest in or some expertise in the area of Health and Wellbeing and who would like to get involved.
