Glin Development would like to sincerely thank Madam Olda Fitzgerald and her daughter Catherine Fitzgerald for their generosity in allowing the Open Day event to take place. We would also like to thank Marie-Therese Costello, Manager of Glin Castle, and her staff for being so welcoming and professional on the day. Thanks also to all the tour guides who did a wonderful job in the house and also thanks to the guides who did the wonderful garden tours. There was a great take up for the Raffle on the day and again thanks to all the sponsors of the prizes. And last but by no means least, a huge thanks to the organisers of the event, the hard working volunteers of Glin Development and Tidy Towns, and The Men’s Shed. Without this hard working bunch, the day would not be possible. All proceeds from the day will go towards the maintenance and upkeep of existing projects in Glin town.

GLIN GAA CLUB NOTES

County League

Glin 5-12

Athea 2-7

Our final league game of the year was against our near neighbours Athea. We got off to a flying start with a score within 10 seconds with Pádraig Scanlon, finishing cleverly from a Paul Sheehan assist. We looked bright in the opening stages with Sheagh O Connor and Ronan Culhane dominating the first quarter, however we conceded two quick goals midway through the half which left us with a mountain to climb. Another Scanlon score and two from Ronan Culhane narrowed Athea’s lead. Our lads fought back with a few minutes to go and smart scores from Jack Sheehan, Paul Sheehan and O Connor left us four points down with seconds left in the first half. A stroke of small fortune came our way, when a foul on the edge of the Athea box was deemed a penalty by referee Seanie Hartnett. Paul Sheehan converted the 3 pointer to leave the score at half time 2-4 to 1-6. 

The second half was a dominant display by the black and white. A flood of goals came our way following some great passages of play from our defence, namely Maurice Fitzgerald and Eoin Wolfe. Sheagh O Connor led the scoring with two goals, only for Cian Culhane to replicate the feat with two goals of his own. From there we pulled away and kicked a further six points in the half to end whatever resistance the opposition threw our way! The game ended Glin 5-12 – Athea 2-7. We now look forward to our Championship opener in six weeks’ time. 

Team: Ger Lyons, Eoin Wolfe, Jamie Fitzgerald, Cormac Healy, Padraic O Connor, Conor Shine, Maurice Fitzgerald, Sheagh O Connor, Ronan Culhane, Jack Sheehan, Padraig Scanlon, John Daniel Hickie, Padraig Horan, Paul Sheehan, Cian Culhane, Brian O Donovan, Fionn Henderson, Darragh McKenna.

Scrap Metal Collection

Any items for our scrap metal collection can be dropped to the field any day between 10am and 2pm. All contributions are greatly appreciated.

Egg-cellent result for Easter Fundraiser in Glin.  St. Fergus NS Glin Parents Council is delighted to announce that it raised €5,041.25 through its recent Easter fundraiser.  The weather didn’t disappoint and beautiful April skies greeted walkers and coffee-morning goers on Saturday, April 9th in the picturesque west Limerick village of Glin. Children and adults soaked up the atmosphere and took to the Knight’s Walk, while others attended the coffee morning at Ceol Corbrai in the village centre, all supporting the fundraising efforts of St. Fergus NS Parents Council. The hall in Ceol Corbrai was full of colour, cakes and coffee and the community had a chance to catch up with one another. In addition to the funds raised through walk sponsorship and cake sales, raffle tickets were in big demand, with local legend Big Maggie very kindly doing the honours to a crowd of very excited ticket-holders.   Joint Secretary Lisa Henderson was thrilled with the outcome of the event. “The whole day went even better than we could have imagined. The support from the local community blew us away. All the effort was worth it and we know the difference these funds will make to the school. On behalf of the Parents Council I would like to thank everyone who supported us. It means a lot to know that people care so much about children in the community.”  After a very busy and productive morning, it was clear that the community in Glin and the surrounding parishes are well and truly invested in the village’s next generation.  In addition to all those who participated on the day itself, St. Fergus NS Parents Council would like to thank everyone who baked or donated goods and to all the businesses and individuals who made donations.   The next event in the Parents Council’s Fundraising Calendar is a school disco on June 17th. 

Glin Baby & Toddler Group:  what a fantastic first week back last Friday.  A huge crowd came with lots of smallies, it was truly wonderful to see the group back and in flying form. We look forward to welcoming everyone back again this this Friday morning from 10am at Coel Corbrai Hall. Contribution of €3 per family. Everyone is welcome. 

Glin Homes for the Elderly & Glin Development Association:  arranged a Cead Mile Failte in Cloverfield last Thursday for our Ukrainian neighbours who recently arrived in The Lanterns Motel, Tarbert.  Transport was arranged by our Councillor John Sheahan to bring the group to Cloverfield in Glin.  A lovely dinner was provided by Rachel Duff and her staff. Over dinner new friendships were forged with our Ukrainian friends as everyone chatted and got to know each other through the help of the interpreters.  Some of the representatives from Tarbert also came along to introduce the group. 

What a wonderful group of people! They were extremely touched by the solidarity shown by everyone who came to Cloverfield to lend support and make them welcome.  It was a lovely afternoon and the Ukraine girls sang a song from their homeland which was very moving.  It is unimaginable what these Ukraine people are living through.  It is but a small gesture to offer a helping hand and to make them feel welcome and supported in our country. We now have a main contact for the group, and it is intended to provide further support going forward.  Thank you to those who were able to come to Cloverfield today and to the wonderful staff who looked after everyone so professionally.

‘Laskavo Prosimo’ to our Ukranian Neighbours.

‘Laskavo Prosimo’ to our Ukranian Neighbours.

Over a fabulous meal served by the staff of Cloverfield, Glin Homes and the people of Glin introduced themselves to our newly arrived neighbours from the Ukraine. It was a very emotional encounter as our new friends used the occasion to thank everyone involved in making them feel so welcome in Ireland. We were all a little tearful when they sang a beautiful Ukranian folk song which reminded us of the terrible ordeal that all Ukranian are going through, not knowing when this terrible war will end and when they can return to their own country. Our Chairman made a special reference to the local volunteer group of Noreen, Laura, Michelle and Susan who have been working tirelessly over the past few weeks with those unfortunate families and hopefully more people might become involved going forward. The most immediate issue for these families is transport to and from the nearest towns of Listowel, Tralee, Newcastle West or Limerick. If you would like to play your part you can make contact with their group liaison person Lena at 087 2273562.

Glin GAA Club Notes

Parish League

Last Sunday brought down the curtain on our inaugural parish league. It was a sunny but nippy afternoon but that didn’t take from the brilliant spectacle that all in attendance witnessed. Proceedings started with a parade of the reserve junior and senior finalists behind our resident piper for the day Seamus Hunt. 

The Junior reserve final was between Cahara and Coole, the spirit and drive shown by these two teams had to be witnessed to be believed. With Cahara winning the spoils at the end. With some great performances by Caoimhe Mulroe and Tom Farrell. 

It has been said the senior reserve final was a first in the history of the GAA when Ballinamaddagh Upper took on Glenagragra in what was the first ever meetings of these two teams. Again it was a game where great skill and ability was in abundance with great performances from Thomas lyons, Fergus Maharg, Eoin o Connor and Evan Fitzell. This battle was to be won by Ballinamaddagh Upper. 

Next up was the Junior Final between two power houses of past parish leagues. Ballyculhane and Tullyleague. This game was full of great scores , tackling ,blocking, passing and Fair Play. The O Sullivan brothers giving a great example of how the game should be played. Which was one of the reasons that Ballyculhanes name will be the first on the Junior Parish league trophy. Again some outstanding performances from Harry Lonergan, Catherine Dunne and Rachel Healy. 

Then it was the turn of the big boys and girls to strut there stuff. This final was between Ballinamaddagh lower and Clonoughter. Both teams unfortunately had to play without there respective captains. Luke Costello the Clonoughter captain had to go help out his Desmond league team to a big win against west Cork. While Cillian Sheahan was unable to lead his team on the field since he was carrying an injury, but it did not stop him giving his teammates guidance and encouragement from the line. With these two young man not playing it was left up to the remaining teammates to take up the mantle. And boy they did not disappoint. This was a game for the ages. It had it all. Tough tackling, scores from all angles, brilliant goal keeping from both keepers. I won’t be alone in saying this game will go down as one of the best ever played in Culhane park. It was nip and tuck the whole way with the strong wind having a barring in both halves. In the final few minutes the game took on a life of its own. The leads swing 4 different times. It was looking like extra time would be needed to separate these two teams. Then in the last minute of the game when Sheagh lyons together took a rasper of a shot that was destined for the bottom corner only to be saved in spider like fashion by Pzemack, but the omnipresent Tadgh Costello was on hand to slot to the net from the save. It looked at this stage that the trophy was heading to Clonoughter but Ballinamaddagh had other plans when a big clearance out of the backs fell to Chloe Martin who was coolness personified to finish to the net to be the heroine and to win by 2 points. Clonoughter went for a fast kick out but the final whistle blew to shouts of joy from the Ballinamaddagh supporters and also sighs of disappointment from Clonoughter. Both teams can hold there heads high in knowing they took part in such a memorable game of football. With winners there has to be losers but the individual performance by Jack o Sullivan was a sight to behold he covered every blade of grass and left all he had on the field, giving a great example of how the game should be played. 

When heart rates eventually came back down there was a medal presentation in front of the club house. Where every player got there well deserved medals from our local legend of the game the forever young Jotty Culhane, who was under the watchful eye of his friend and teammate the late Billy Martin. 

There was also individual awards. The junior players of the week went to Caoimhe Mulroe and Jamie Fitzgerald ,two greats prospects for the men and womens clubs were not the future.

The senior players of the week went to Tadgh Costello and Jack o Sullivan who between them scored 2goals and 6 points in the final. Glin GAA will be in good hands with the likes of these young men on our side. 

Finally a few thank you s. This parish league would not have taken place without Ger lyons seeing this as a way of getting all the want to be footballers in the parish come together and play in a tournament that hopefully will continue well into the future. A massive thank you to all parents , coaches , refs and Bord na nog members, the volunteers that helped with the goodie bags and the piper Seamus Hunt. Thank you all. 

With all the excitement we forgot to have our raffle for the Gaelic football signed by the limerick football squad and two Glin GAA boot bags, we will have an on line raffle over the next few days. 

For those who have played for the first and last time in the parish league we wish them all the best in there secondary school experience. With this year being such a success we look forward to seeing these footballers again next year and also those coming up from senior infants to first class ye will be welcomed with open arms. 

It was great to see so many from the community, young and old out and about last Sunday. We have a great little club here, anyone that is interested in helping with any aspect of the club there is a place for you. 

Here’s to next year!

Wedding Bells

Congratulations to Alan O’Donovan and Deirdre O’Connor who got married last weekend. Alan has given us stellar service as a club secretary over many years now and our Treasurer, Jack Dunne made a presentation to Alan in recognition of this in advance of the big day.

Native Oak Tree Planting at the Knights Walk…

Native Oak Tree Planting at the Knights Walk , Glin  –  ‘Cuinne an Ghiorria’

Glin was blessed on Thursday with fine weather as the tree planting ceremony took place.  Glin Development and Tidy Towns in co-operation with Catherine Fitzgerald of Glin Caste, who represented Bugs Bees and Native Trees, spearheaded the tree planting initiative.  Children from fifth and sixth class at St. Fergus National School came to learn about all things trees and to help with the planting.  Catherine Fitzgerald, Glin Castle, is a Landscape Designer and Gardener, and she gave a lovely talk about the importance of trees.  She was accompanied by her mother, Madam Olda Fitzgerald, two of her children and her nephew.   Catherine interacted with the school children and explained how trees are so vital to our future on earth.  Trees are the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen while taking in carbon and other nasty chemicals.  Trees are also vital to stabilise the soil and they also, most importantly, give life and shelter to the world’s wildlife.  

Ten sessile oaks and one Brian Boru Oak were planted at the site adjacent to Glin church and at the entrance point to the Knights Walk.  The original Brian Boru in Tuamgraney, Co. Clare, is over one thousand years old and is reputed to have been planted by the High King himself.  Thousands of its acorns have been planted throughout Ireland. The Brian Boru sapling was very kindly donated by Julia and Denis Ryan, Glin.  

Glin Development Chairman, John Anthony Culhane, spoke of the initiative presently in Clare, run by the Burrenbeotrust, to encourage farmers and landowners to make more space for nature, by creating a mini woodland, orchard or ponds on their lands.  The name of this initiative is called ‘Hare’s Corner’!  Hare’s Corner is an old farming expression for the corner of a field or an area of rough ground which could be ‘left to nature’.  The name now given to our new mini woodland area at the entrance to the Knights Walk is ‘Cuinne an Ghiorria’  the Irish version of The Hares Corner!

This is a particularly scenic and pretty site, and these Oaks will certainly add to the aesthetic of this area. It was a wonderful few hours, the sun shone, the children enjoyed their lesson on the importance of trees, and Easter treats were handed out to all.  

Glin Development would like to thank everyone who turned up for the planting, and especially the teachers and students from St. Fergus National School. They would also like to sincerely thank Catherine Fitzgerald for her time and thank her for preparing a wonderful talk for the assembled crowd. They would also like to thank all those who helped prepare the ground in advance and had the site ready for this morning’s event.

GLIN GAA CLUB NOTES ⚽️⚽️⚽️

West Junior B League

Glin 2-7

Mountcollins 3-2

It was a cold and crisp evening at Páirc Uí Chathaláin last Thursday evening when our Junior B side played their opening game of the season. Gary Culhane opened the scoring in the 8th minute with a fine curling right foot effort from play and that was quickly followed up by Micheál Sheehy, who rolled back the years to slot over a tremendous score. After that, Philip Moloney cut through the defence from midfield to shoot a fine point. We were well in control at this stage but were not able to make it count on the scoreboard. Mountcollins, to their credit, hung in there, and were rewarded with a goal just before halftime. At the break, the score was Glin 0-3, Mountcollins 1-0.

We made a few changes at half time. Paul Sheahan came on and made an immediate impact with two points, the second an outrageous effort from way out on the right hand side which curled high over the black spot. James MacSweeney then struck for a fine goal on the 40th minute mark which put some breathing space between the teams. Ger Lyons then increased our lead with a free and followed it up with an expertly taken goal. Our defence continued to play well throughout this period, thwarting many opposition advances and setting up scores for our forwards and Tadhg Culhane strode up from wing back to kick a great point from the tightest of angles. Ger Lyons kicked over our final score of the day in the 53 minute. Mountcollins never gave up and got a few late scores to narrow the gap but we held out for a well deserved victory. It finished Glin 2-7 Mountcollins 3-2. Best for Glin were Hugh Dunne, Tadhg Culhane, Gary Culhane and Maurice Fitzgerald. Fair play to all the lads who togged out, especially Micheál Sheehy, who travelled a great distance to be there.

Team: Seán Lyons, Cormac Healy, Hugh Dunne, Fionn Henderson, Tadhg Culhane, Brian Mulroe, Kieran Scanlon, Edmond Horan, Philip Moloney, Micheál Sheehy, Gary Culhane, Joe Stack, Darragh McKenna, Pádraig Horan, James MacSweeney, Subs used Paul Sheehan, Ger Lyons, Maurice Fitzgerald and Darragh Leahy.

Native Tree Planting in Glin. 🌳🌳🌳

Thursday 7th April, 11.30 am, at entrance to Knights Walk.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns in co-operation with Glin and Ballyguiltenane National schools will be involved in a Native Tree Planting Ceremony. This tree planting ceremony is to celebrate the recent National Tree Week which took place nationwide in March.

We are celebrating all things trees and ten native oaks will be planted at the site adjacent to St. Pauls, Glin, on Thursday morning next the 7th April at 11.30. A Brian Boru Oak sapling will also be planted! … ‘Mighty Oaks from little acorns grow’.

The Brian Boru tree is reputedly over 1,000 years old, was possibly planted by Brian Boru himself, it still bears fruit and thousands of its acorns have been planted throughout the country.

Catherine Fitzgerald of Glin Castle, along with some pupils from our two local schools will plant the saplings. Catherine will impart her knowledge about tree planting, tree care, and how to enjoy all aspects of our native tree species and their identification.

It will be great to see the children and the community come together to learn about the important role trees play in helping to stop climate change. Planting more trees will ensure a greener future.

Everyone is welcome to attend and we are looking forward to seeing you there.

Under 20s Ireland Rugby:  It was wonderful to see the Glin connection in the Under 20s Six Nations winning Rugby Squad.  Man of the match in a few of their games, James Culhane is a nephew of John Anthony Culhane, Chairperson of Glin development & Glin Homes for the Elderly and retired Principal of St. Fergus NS.  Many congratulations.

Collection for Ukraine: Bishops have asked that a Special Collection for Ukraine be taken up in parishes on the weekend of 26 and 27 March.  

Responding to the great concern expressed by many people in the parishes and Dioceses of Ireland, the Bishops decided to offer people another opportunity to support financially the families and children of the Ukraine who have had to flee their homeland in advance of the Russian invasion. 

Bishops said, “Already millions of people have been forced to flee their homes as refugees.  It is a source of inspiration that people all over Ireland are responding with customary generosity to support humanitarian efforts in this crisis.  Many parish communities have already established links with charitable projects to support refugees and those remaining in Ukraine. Recognising these urgent needs, the bishops are asking that a special collection be taken up at all Masses on the weekend of Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 March.

The proceeds of this Special Collection will be directed to Caritas Internationalis which is the helping hand of the Church on the ground in the Ukraine and surrounding areas. Caritas is the international equivalent of Trócaire, our own Irish Church development agency.

All donations can be put in the box at the back of the Church, the proceeds of which will be returned as quickly as possible to the diocesan office.
