Glin GAA – CLUB NOTES

Intermediate County QFGlin take on Mungret this Friday evening in Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale at 6.45 in the County Intermediate quarter final. Since we were promoted from Junior in 2014, we unfortunately not made a significant impact at this grade, and only reaching the knock out stages twice. Our opponents beat both Monaleen and Kildimo-Pallaskenry to top their group so they come into this game in good form. Our own path to this stage began with an opening round defeat to St. Senan’s before beating Bruff by five points 3 weeks ago. As the current restrictions continue to mean supporters are not allowed attend the game, we will be bringing you updates on Twitter throughout the match to ensure you are kept informed of key events in the game. Check out www.twitter.com/glingaa or follow us through the Twitter app. Best of luck to the lads!
U14 C’shipWell done to our U14s who had great win last week against Monagea! The team played brilliantly and we won on a score line of 7-7 to 2-14. Full forward Tom Healy was our top scorer with 6 goals and 3 points to his credit. The team lined out as follows:Darragh Woulfe, Conor Fitzgerald, Thabo Munpunda, S. Dillane, F. McNamara, Colm McNamara, Darragh Mullane, Aidan Healy, Adam Bennett, Gavin Thompson, Charlie McDonagh, D. Daly, J. Adams, Tom Healy, Sean McIntyre, G. McDonagh, Luke Buckley, Mark Hanagan, Killeen Lonergan, Fergal Leahy, R. McIntyre, Daniel Regan, Harry Fitzgerald.
MinorsHard luck to Shannon Gaels minors who lost to a very strong Ahane outfit in the County Minor B Football championship last Friday evening in New Garden. The final score was Ahane 5-9 Shannon Gaels 2-3.
CongratulationsWell done to all our players who received their Leaving Certificate results last week. We wish them all well with their next stage in life.
SympathyGlin GAA club would like to express our sincerest condolences to former club treasurer Donie Shine and his family on the death of his mother, Ita.Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam.

GLIN GAA CLUB NOTES ⚽️⚽️⚽️

Intermediate C’ship .

Glin 2-10 Bruff 2-5
Though the new restrictions meant that no more than the proverbial two men and a dog were watching, the lack of spectators didn’t take from the exciting contest on the field at Feenagh last Saturday evening.We made a decent start with Brian O’Donovan bursting up the field before laying a fine pass of to Ronan Culhane who kicked over the first score of the day. Shortly afterwards, Jack Sheehan dodged passed two backs before being hauled to the ground. Kevin Moore kicked over the resulting free. We took the foot off the pedal then and Bruff came back into it with 2 points of their own.Point three came from good interplay between Tim Scanlon and Oliver Wallace in the middle of the field, Moore latched onto the kick inside and landed his second of the game. Two key moments came in the next five minutes. Ronan Culhane who had been doing well came off injured and Bruff converted a penalty. Fortunately for us, the response was immediate with Sheagh O’Connor’s fist deflecting a long Moore free into the back of the net. After the water break, Kevin Sweeney followed up from where he left off last week, with a fantastic left footed score from distance. Wallace turned provider once more with O’Connor knocking over his second score of the game. Bruff got a point back and were in for a goal but for a timely inception by goalkeeper Seán Lyons who cleared to safety.At half time the score was Glin 1-5 Bruff 1-3.We came like a greyhound out of the traps in the second half. It was barely a minute old when Philip Moloney’s accurate long pass was grasped by Moore about 30 yards out. He released the ball to the onrushing Sheagh O’Connor who left his man for dead before coolly slotted the ball into the corner of the net. Ollie Wallace then got on the scoresheet with a well taken point of his own which was followed by another monsterous 45 yard score from Kevin Sweeney. With ten minutes gone in the second half, we now led by 6 points, 2-7 to 1-4. Edmond and Seán Horan were really coming into their own in the middle of the field, winning kick outs and setting up attacks. Our defence was also holding firm with Tim Scanlon, Jamie Fitzgerald and Brian O’Donovan doing a great job keeping their men quiet whilst driving forward at every opportunity.At the 40th minute mark, Brendan Flanagan entered the fray and made an immediate impact, with two pointed free and lovely curling right footed effort during the next ten minutes. The score was now 2-10 to 1-5. Bruff came back into it towards the end and brought the deficit back to just 5 points with a goal but that was as close as it came with the final score 2-10 to 2-5. It was a well deserved victory that gets us back on track. We await the outcome of the final group match between St. Senan’s and Bruff to see what way this group pans out. Best for Glin on the day were Oliver Wallace, Jack Sheehan, Tim Scanlon, Edmond Horan, Kevin Sweeney and Sheagh O’Connor.Team:Seán Lyons, Aidan Mulvihill, Jamie Fitzgerald, Tim Scanlon, Brian O’Donovan, Philip Moloney, Conor Shine, Edmond Horan, Ronan Culhane, Jack Sheehan, Oliver Wallace, Kevin Sweeney, Sheagh O’Connor, Kevin Moore, Maurice Moore. Subs used: Seán Horan, John Wallace, Brendan Flanagan, James Wallace, Cian Culhane.

Glin and Ballyguiltenane Confirmation …🙏

Glin will be celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation on this coming Thursday (Glin) and Friday (Ballyguiltenane). Fr. Tom Crawford will be officiating at the ceremony. It will be a lovely family occasion and we wish all the children receiving their Confirmation a wonderful spiritual day.
The Church has been prepared. Michael Collins of Pro-Clean Kerry did a full professional clean in the church ⛪️ on Monday. Mary Horan of Mary Horan Wedding Flowers will weave her magic with beautiful floral displays. We would ask all families attending to bear in mind the COVID guidelines of social distancing and the wearing of masks. Hopefully the weather will be good and a lovely day will be enjoyed by all. 🙏

CONFIRMATION PRAYER:

Spirit of God, grant me:
The gift of wisdom
To see the world through your eyes,
The gift of counsel
To make difficult decisions,
The gifts of knowledge and understanding To use my mind to know you and to love you, The gift of fortitude
To have the courage to live in the faith Despite the difficulties and disappointments, The gift of piety
To be able to express my special love And commitment to you,
And the right kind of awesome fear That makes me pause to wonder and revere God’s Love.
Amen 🙏

A DAILY PRAYER FOR YOUR CONFIRMATION:

O God, I pray that you give me a right heart, that I may come to know you in Jesus. Lead me to know the sinfulness of my own heart, and your great love for me,
in Christ Jesus.
Help those who teach me,
to give me the teaching I need.
Grant that, on my Confirmation Day,
I may be ready to give myself to be your faithful soldier
and servant to my life’s end;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen 🙏

Parish Newsletter: 25th June 2020.

Glin Parish – Church of the Immaculate Conception.

Safety guidelines for the resumption of community celebration of Masses.

After a long wait we can now return to our Churches for public worship.  I want to welcome you back and hope you can attend in safety and without fear, however we need to be concerned about social Distancing. Hygiene, and protection of each other. The Church will be prepared as much as possible to enable this to happen.

  1. This will require checking the numbers we can cater for especially at weekend Masses and arranging the seating for social distancing. The obligation to be at Sunday Mass will not apply for the time being. Many may still not feel at ease coming into the Church for Health and Safety reasons. You are welcome but you must take responsibility for your own decision. If you have concerns about your health and the risks involved, please consider staying away for your own safety. We all need to be aware of the National guidelines and act accordingly. This is a new situation for all of us.
  2. Hand Hygiene is essential and face masks are recommended. The seatsand door handles etc need to be wiped down before and after each service and volunteers are needed from the congregation for this. The toilets will be closed except for emergencies and those who use the facilities are responsible for hygiene there. Sanitation stations will be at the entrance and near the Sanctuary area for all who attend. Readers and Eucharistic Ministers need to take special care and prepare for this new situation.
  3. Stewarding will have to be in place and followed. I am asking people to volunteer for this especially at weekends. They will be at the entrance to help people to the available seats and also to look after people with special needs etc. I hope we have enough to form a rota and that it won’t be a burden on anybody.
  4. Collection Boxes will be available for your envelopes and contributions rather than the open baskets we normally use.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation.    

Fr. Tom Crawford.

Great community turnout yesterday at East Mall! Ken Reidy got a head start and made light work along by his home house. Plenty of volunteers from the East Mall neighbourhood came and the cleanup was done in no time. The walkway looks great and it is now a much safer area to walk. Just shows what can be done when we all get together. Thanks to everyone who turned up. There will be another get together there in the coming weeks.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns – upkeep of Knockeranna Way.

The walkway along by the river running into the Estuary was given an overhaul this evening. We cleared the overgrowth around the two seating areas. The past winter with its exceptionally high tides, had washed in a lot of shore sand and stones, along with drift wood etc. This has now been cleared from the walkway and it’s safer under foot. The seats here will shortly get a fresh coat of paint. Thanks to everyone who came along to help out. No one was safe, even Redi and his wife Neomi had a shovel put in their hands as they were out for their evening walk! It’s an exceptionally beautiful evening again in our scenic Glin town, and Knockeranna Way is a little piece of heaven.
