Under 12 hurling match against Craanford Tuesday 24th in Ballyroebuck @ 6:30pm sharp.

The best of luck to Tomás Kirwan and Stephen Kenny who represent the club in the County Finals of the Feile Skills Competition in Ferns next Wednesday evening.

Well done also to Tom Kinsella and Ronan Dillon who made the final panel for the county Under 14 hurlers and Martin Byrne who is with the footballers.

Its a great achievement and continued success to them all.

Following a recent meeting with Cliona Connolly, Environment Officer with Wexford County Council and Peter Byrne, manager of waste disposal in the county, the worse areas for fly-tipping on the hill road have been identified.

If you come across litter on the hill, please contact the Environment Section of Wexford County Council directly – 053 91 96475 – and inform them where the litter is. For this reason, each of the gates on the way up the hill has been named, so that the Environment Section will know exactly where the tipping has occurred.  They will then come to collect the litter. GPS co-ordinates are also provided.

Starting from the trailhead at the carpark, the first gate on the first bend going up the hill is designated as the Farm Gate.

The next gate is the one above the cottage and is called Gortland’s Gate.

The next openings are left and right, and they are Kidd’s Gate.

The gate at the very top on the right-angled bend is down as Coast View Gate.
