HEALTHY CLUBS UPDATE – HILL WALK NO. 3 We have two big events to kick-start the autumn season in the Healthy Clubs Project. On Sunday next, Hill Walk No. 3 takes place. Having been to Knockadoon and then to Roches Point for our first two hill walks, we come closer to home this Sunday, with a walk through road, path and field in the northern end of the parish. Rath Fort, on Dan Harte’s land, is one of the hidden treasures of not just Killeagh parish but of all of East Cork, and Dan has kindly agreed to allow our Hill Walk group to access this fascinating historical site. We will meet outside Inch Church at 10.30 a.m., and travel by foot north east towards Rath, climbing gradually. Should time and weather conditions permit, we will continue our trek to Ardagh Graveyard, another hidden treasure in our locality, before returning to Inch, ensuring that our walkers can get home to see the Dubs and Mayo in the All-Ireland. Places are limited, so text your name to Colman on 085-7540973 to book your place. Bring appropriate footwear, clothing, food and drink, and a smile!

Our second date for your diary is a Healthy Food Workshop and Demonstration which will take place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Friday October 7th at 7.30 p.m. Further details will follow – for the moment, save the date!

East Cork Football/Hurling;

Pairc Ui Chinneide was the venue for the semi-final clash of Cloyne and Youghal in the East Cork Junior ‘B’ hurling championship. The weather wasn’t great for hurling but both teams battled hard against the elements where, in the end Cloyne emerged with a victory on a final score of Youghal 0-15 Cloyne 3-07. They now await the outcome of the Killeagh v Sarsfields clash to find out their opponents in the final. We would like to thank all the club members who helped out at the pitch last Sunday evening and also to thank both teams and their supporters who complied with the stewards on duty.
