Go Fund Me… put the ‘Light’ back into Glin Town Park.

https://gofund.me/29f4741b

This page has been set up by Glin Community News as a result of the outcry from local parishioners and people further afield, that were shocked and horrified by the recent criminal damage that happened in the Glin Town Park. This GoFundMe page will run for one month and all monies raised, no matter how small, will go directly to Glin Development to support them towards the cost of CCTV cameras, replacement of bollard lighting and electrical repairs to the Corbry Tree. This fundraiser is to show support and solidarity with Glin Development.
On the night of the 1st January 2022, barely 24 hours from when we rang in the New Year, vandals struck and caused thousands of euros worth of damage to a large portion of the lighting structures that surround the park. These bollards/lamps were callously thrown into the river Shannon along with signage and bulbs. The Corby Christmas Tree, a recent project funded by Glin Development in 2020, was unfortunately also targeted. The door entry was kicked in and the wiring boxes ripped out. The Corbry Tree is a wonderful uplifting symbol of light and hope in our town park, and is sadly missed by all.Presently the town park is in darkness!
There is a large amount of damage, but, with your help we can ensure that the park returns to its former glory. It is envisioned that CCTV cameras will be installed, to prevent this type of criminal damage in the future. With your contribution, the lighting bollards will be replaced and the Corbry Tree will be repaired. We can, once again, ensure that our park is a safe place for people to walk of an evening, will be a beacon of light to passing ships in the night and to passing cars on the N 69.
TOGETHER WE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO PUT THE ‘LIGHT’ BACK INTO GLIN TOWN PARK!

Collection boxes are located in shops and pubs in Glin.

“To all the wonderful people that have donated so generously to the GoFundMe page to put the ‘Light’ back into Glin Town Park THANK YOU SO MUCH. In less than 20 hours we have managed to hit the target of €1,500 and some more!!! With everyone being so big hearted when times are tough for many, it really means so much to see such generosity. I have raised the bar a little higher to a goal of €5,500 and I just feel we will break this goal too! Please continue to share and thank you so so much.” Glin Community News.

Criminal Damage at Glin Town Park 2/1/22

It’s with a heavy heart, that at this start of the New Year, Glin Development have to report criminal damage that took place last night in Glin Town Park. Lighting bollards were ripped out, wiring and cabling pulled out and thrown into the river Shannon. The Corbry Christmas Tree that stands proud in the centre of the park has had all its cabling pulled out and damaged. Unfortunately the tree will not light for the rest of the Christmas period. What kind of people are out there in our midst, that would be so evil, cowardly and destructive, to go to Glin Town Park in the cover of darkness and carryout this kind of criminal damage. It is an insult to the people of Glin and further a field who have given donations and very generous contributions, that have allowed all this work to be undertaken. We have no words to express our disgust and disappointment! If anyone has information or know who were the perpetrators of this criminality, please contact Garda Billy McElligott at 068 34100 or Newcastlewest Garda station at 069 20650. There is indeed an element of evil in our midst!

Fourth Sunday of Advent Reflection.

Jesus is of the line of David. He is the Lord’s son and his sovereignty is established for all eternity. He is the King of kings. He is the all-powerful ever- living God. We are secure in his security. On us is bestowed a royal dignity because we share his humanity, the humanity he deigned to take onto himself as true God and true man when he was conceived in Mary’s womb when she said: I am the handmaid of the Lord, let what you have said be done to me. We are restored to the dignity intended by God at the beginning. Jesus has wrought our salvation by becoming one of us.

History and Meaning of the Advent Wreath

The lights of the candles on the Advent Wreath break through the darkness, reminding us of the Light of Christ that we anticipate during this holy season of Advent. Like many of our Church traditions, the use of the Advent Wreath with its evergreens and its lighted candles finds its origins in pagan tradition and ritual. “Pre-Germanic peoples used wreaths with lit candles during the dark and cold of winter as signs of hope in the future warmth and lengthening sunlit days of spring. Similarly, Scandinavians lit candles which were placed around a wheel, and prayers were offered to the god of light to turn the wheel of the earth back toward the sun to lengthen the days and restore warmth.” In the middle ages, Germanic peoples began incorporating a lighted wreath into the Christian season of Advent. It didn’t gain widespread popularity until the 1800s.

The Advent Wreath is symbolic. The evergreens used for the wreath itself are reminders of life. Shaping them into a circle reinforces that meaning. The circle is also a sign of everlasting life as well as the eternity of God.

The four candles used, three purple and one rose, mark the Sundays of Advent before Christmas. The purple candles are reminders that this should be a time of prayer and sacrifice to prepare us for the second coming of Christ. On the third Sunday, the rose candle is lit to announce Gaudete Sunday, (Gaudete means rejoice) a Sunday of rejoicing for Christ’s coming is near. With the lighting of that third candle, brightness is growing and the darkness is being overcome.

A fifth and larger white candle in the centre represents Christ. It is lit on Christmas Eve as a declaration that Christ has come into the world and the darkness is vanquished utterly.

The Advent Wreath serves as a powerful visual reminder of the holiness of the season. The light of the candles invites us to quiet ourselves during this busy time and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. It provides an invitation to wait and pray in hopeful anticipation for the coming of Christ. We are called to welcome the light of Christ into our lives.

Thank you: The church grounds received a great power hosing Saturday morning last! Thank you to the Mulvihill brothers, John, Eddie and Thomas and nephew Pakie.  What a difference it made.  Their sister, Bride O’Connor, of Brides Boutique Church Street, had her months mind mass at 7 pm at Glin church on Saturday. 

Glin Development: were disappointed recently to have to postpone the unveiling of the Ring Fort Native Tree Planting event at the Knights Walk.  It was to have been a day of educational fun for the children of Glin and Ballyguiltenane National Schools.  Some native Irish Oaks were to be planted at the site of what remains of an old Ring Fort located at the loop section of the walk.  Catherine Fitzgerald of Glin Castle was to plant the first tree and tell the school children about the organisation, Bugs Bees and Native Trees. This organisation is dedicated to the importance of the protection of our environment, biodiversity and climate change through tree planting and other community initiatives. An Interpretative Board was to be placed at the entrance to the site, giving historical information about Ring Forts and the importance of preserving our history.   Glin Development had also asked local man, Pat McSweeney, to create a Fairy House out of the stump of an old tree adjacent to the site.  Pat has been working over the past few months, to create what is now a superb specimen of a Fairy House.  It has magical qualities and you could indeed believe that the fairies have already taken up residence.  

We were all disappointed the project did not go ahead as planned, but we look forward to rescheduling the event with the children of Glin and Ballyguiltenane National Schools in the coming months.  We would encourage parents to take their children up to see the Fairy House, at the top of Lissy Highe (beginning of the loop) at the Knights Walk.  We would also like to sincerely thank Pat McSweeny for creating a wonderful imaginative fairy house, and thank him for his time and excellent craftsmanship.

Cillian scored his first goal for his country in the opening half of the game. After an impressive week with Paul Osams U16 team, the following Monday he flew to Coventry with the U17 Cork FC team to take part in a tournament against Coventry City, AFC Bournemouth and Oxford United. Cillian’s winning penalty sealed the deal and Cork City claimed the ‘Sky Blue Cup’ title in Coventry.

Glin Tennis Club Renovations

❌❌❌EXCITING NEWS❌❌❌

The day has arrived 😁…Thanks to the Sport Capital Programme, Glin Tennis Club were approved funding to start the renovation process of Glin tennis court! The renovation started last month and fantastic work has been completed. A huge thanks to Denis Lucey of Courtcare and his hardworking team, Brian and Eoin. They have transformed the tennis court as can be seen from the range of photos, from the very beginning to the finished product. Who could believe the end result !!! The fencing will be replaced when the next tranche of funding comes on line. It looks spectacular and we love the red and green colours. There will be an Open Day organised so keep an eye on the Glin Tennis FB PAGE.

GLIN GAA CLUB NOTES …

I F C GLIN 1-5Pallasgreen 1-11It was a gallant effort from our lads last Friday week in Rathkeale. We were very competitive in the first half and it was only in the latter stages of the game that Pallasgreen pulled clear. Sheagh O’Connor finished his goal very well in the first half with Pádraig Scanlon, Brendan Flanagan and James Wallace the other scorers. Man of the Match for Glin was Aiden Mulvihill who gave a fine exhibition of tenacious corner back play, thwarting many of our opponents attacks. Though the result didn’t go our way, there were many fine passages of play where we broke through the Pallasgreen defence and created some good scoring opportunities. Our next game will be the relegation semi final.Team: Seán Lyons, Aiden Mulvihill, Jamie Fitzgerald, Patrick Cregan, John Wallace, Seán Horan, Conor Shine, Pádraig Scanlon (0-2), Ronan Culhane, Pádraic O’Connor, Sheagh O’Connor (1-1) Jack Sheehan, Fionn Henderson, Jack O’Neill, James Wallace (0-1). Subs used Oliver Wallace, Brendan Flanagan (0-1), Cian Culhane, Tomás Woulfe.
Junior BOur Junior B team were beaten on Monday evening by a very strong Knockaderry side. Great credit is due to our lads who battled throughout even though we were well outclassed on the night. Best for Glin were Pádraig Costello, Michael Stack and Killian Lenihan. Our final group game is against Ballingarry and is scheduled to be played this weekend.
Online Club ShopA new range of Glin GAA gear has been added to the O’Neill’s online club shop which can be accessed online at:https://www.oneills.com/shop-by-team/gaa/ireland/glin-gaa-club.html.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns

Leader Rural Development Programme 2020 /Protection and Sustainable use of Water Resources

A recent initiative between West Limerick Resources and Glin Development and Tidy Towns has been successful and Glin has been awarded funding for the purchase and installation of Water Butts in the Glin community.  The initiative is to support the protection of our most natural resource, water.  Collecting rain water has many benefits to the environment: 

  • Demand on water supply is reduced
  • Improved water supply and less pressure on the network
  • Helps conserve treated water and protects the environment
  • Water your garden with a store of free rainwater
  • Cost effective and eco friendly

The number of Water Butts is limited.  If you are interested in having one installed in your home, please ring Marie on 086 8691821. 

While the Water Butts (210 L) are being given for free, we are asking for a nominal installation fee of €20.  The Glin Development and Tidy Towns will follow up with participants in due course to get feedback on their experience with the Water Butts and the benefits that have been gained from its use.  

GLIN TIDY TOWNS: The Tidy Towns volunteers have started back on Wednesday evenings.  There are lots of areas that need a good dose of TLC!  It is hoped a lot will be covered over the summer months.  Most of the work consists of weeding, painting, litter picking and general upkeep and watering of the planted beds in the village.  Tidy Towns welcome new members, and will be delighted with any extra help. 

Tidy Towns meet up on Wednesday evening from 7 PM.  The meeting place is normally the Town Park, and from there we decide on jobs/areas that need tackling.  Social distance is always maintained and high vis are always worn.  Glin Development and Tidy Towns would like to give a big shout out to all the participants on the RSS and the TUS schemes.   They all do fantastic work around the village and on the Heritage Trails, keeping the village and its amenities in fantastic shape.  It is very reassuring to see them back after the lockdown, as we know our village and walks are being well maintained and in tip top shape.  Thanks also to our Tidy Towns volunteers who are working on our behalf every day. Willie Wall, for one, can be seen every day keeping the town spick and span.  Thank you to Willie and all our volunteers who are constantly working behind the scenes every day.  Pride of Place is a wonderful thing!  New flower beds were recently installed on the N69 Pier Road entrance to Glin coming from the Loughill side. A lot of work was put into the planning and laying out of these flower beds.  Glin Development wish to sincerely thank Joe Martin for his contribution for all this work and indeed for his contribution to the Tidy Town activities over the past few months.  He has done a lot of work in maintaining the Glin Heritage Trails, and especially, The Knights Walk.  Joe has done all this work on a voluntary basis and we thank him on behalf of the entire community.  He is also the first man to arrive annually for the TLC clean ups.  He fills numerous bags of litter and discarded household rubbish from the ditches and road sides of Glin.  Thank you, Joe.

Glin Knights Walk: The construction of the Viewing Platform is well under way at the summit of the Knight Walk.  It will be a solid construction when it is completed, and a well-earned stop gap to take a photo of the stunning views and for a breather for walkers!  Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the go fund me initiative.  These funds are being used for all the maintenance and up keep of the Knights Walk and the Glin Heritage Trails and other initiatives throughout the village.  https://gf.me/u/y9xyxz     Glin has become a very popular destination for walkers and visitors, and it is great to see so many enjoying all the facilities Glin has to offer.  Let’s hope we get a good summer of sunshine and a glimmer of hope as we come out of lockdown.  Keep up to date – visit the Glin Tidy Towns FB Page and the Glin.info website page.  Congratulations:Great news for two G.B Rover FC players; Dylan Buckley and Luke Costello who have both been requested to attend Tralee Emerging Talent Programme (ETP) The boys will attend 12 sessions in June, July and August. Well done boys.

Fantastic news: for former G.B Rovers F.C player Cillian Mulvihill who is 1 of the 22 selected to train at the 3 day U16 camp in Athlone. A tremendous opportunity, well done Cillian – great international recognition. Keep up the great work.

Glin GAA Club Notes …

U15 ChampionshipShannon Gaels

1-11Drom/Broadford 2-4


Our U15s proved too strong for Drom-Broadford in the first round of the U15 championship. Next up are St. Kieran’s in two weeks which should be a cracker. Our boys played some great football and could have been further ahead at half time. However, the team held firm in the second half and were well ahead going into the last 5 minutes, when Drom Broadford scored 2 late goals.Team: Daragh Woulfe, Conor Fitzgerald, Thabo Ncube, Seamus Dillane, Daragh Mullane, Colm McNamara, Jack Adams, Adam Bennett, Aiden Healy, Gavin Thompson, Charlie McDonagh, Luke Buckley, Graham McDonagh, Seán McEnery, Daniel Regan, Fergal Leahy, Keelan Lonergan, Jim Culhane.


West Intermediate League


Newcastle West 0-13Glin 2-2

Played on greasy conditions, we were always chasing the game from the off but never gave in. NCW were very physical and full of running, though our lads stood up to the challenge bravely. We had some great individual performances especially Jamie and Ronan, to name a few. We kept in touch through two timely Paraic O’Connor goals. Next up is Fr. Casey’s in Glin next week.Squad: S O’Sullivan, A Mulvihill, S Horan, P Cregan, T Woulfe, J Fitzgerald, C Shine, R Culhane, K Lenihan, J Scannell, I Sheehan, P O’Connor, F Henderson, C Culhane, E Mulvihill, John Wallace, O Wallace, John Daniel Hickie.


West Junior League


Glin 0-13Athea 1-13. It was the proverbial game of two halves in Páirc Uí Chathaláin last Wednesday evening. We started the first half quite well with Ger Lyons kicking six points and Gary Culhane, Oliver Wallace and Cian Culhane also getting on the scoresheet. There was some excellent defensive play from our backs too which curtailed the Athea forwards, restricting them to just 3 points in the opening thirty minutes. Halftime Glin 0-9 Athea 0-3.However the second period proved a much different affair. To Athea’s credit they kicked some excellent points from distances and were very efficient in taking their opportunities. Ger Lyons slotted over 3 more points while Cian Culhane added his second. By the second water break we were 4 points behind. Although we had a number of opportunities to close the gap, a combination of bad luck, errors and an excellent diving save by the Athea goalkeeper meant that the game finished 1-13 to 0-13 in Athea’s favour. It was a disappointing 2nd half performance which brought our winning streak to an end, but it’s a result from which we will have learnt a lot. Man of the match for Glin was Cormac Healy, who gave an exhibition of tenacious and clean corner-back play throughout, with strong performances also coming from Ger Lyons, Killian Lenihan and Fionn Henderson. Next up in our final league group game is Ballysteen where our boys will hope to get back to winning ways before the championship begins.Team: Michael Stack, Cormac Healy, Tadhg Culhane, Kieran Scanlon, Killian Lenihan, Paddy Fitzgerald, Fionn Henderson, Edmond Horan, Gary Culhane (0-1), Oliver Wallace (0-1), Shane Culhane, Shane O’Sullivan, Paul Sheahan, Ger Lyons (0-9), Edward Mulvihill. Subs: Cian Culhane (0-2) for Horan, Joe Stack for Mulvihill, David Horan, Seán Lyons, John Daniel Hickie , Darragh McKenna, Darragh Leahy.


Glin Emmets LGFA

Last Sunday evening was first ever training session for the newly formed Glin Emmets Ladies. There was a big turnout of U6, U8 and U10 girls which shows the huge interest and appetite there is for Gaelic Football amongst these age groups and this bodes really well for the future. The next training is on this coming Saturday morning, July 10th, at 9am.


Limerick v Cork Tickets

In the interest of fairness, all our club members who expressed an interest in going to the Limerick v Cork Munster hurling championship semi-final were eligible to enter a draw for the two tickets we were allocated. The winner was Jack Dunne.

Glin GAA

West Junior League
Mountcollins 0-11
Glin 3-12
We travelled to Mountcollins last Saturday afternoon for Round 3 of the West Junior League. It was a very good first half from our point of view. Aided by the wind, we racked up 3-8 in the opening half hour. After Shane Culhane opened the scoring will a nice point, the floodgates opened, with Ger Lyons scoring two very well taken goals, either side of terrific solo goal which was expertly dispatched to the back of the net by Killian Lenihan. In fairness to our opponents they were unlucky not to get a goal of their own back straight away, with Michael Stack pulling off a brilliant point blank save and corner back, Jack Scannell, making a number of clever interceptions which allowed us to keep scores conceded to just 2 points in the first half. During the remainder of the half, two converted frees from Lyons, three fine left footed points from Shane Culhane and a point each from the industrious Edward Mulvihill and Gary Culhane saw us take a 15 point lead in at half time.
Mountcollins really took the game to us in the second half and reeled off a number of points in the opening ten minutes. However, we kept the scoreboard ticking over through points from Gary Culhane, the impressive Killian Lenihan, Shane Culhane and a very sweet strike from Ed Mulvihill which meant that the game ended 3-12 to 0-11 in our favour. The club would like to wish a speedy recovery to the Mountcollins corner forward who suffered an unfortunate injury towards the end of the match. Best for Glin were Scannell, Lenihan, Lyons and Shane Culhane.
Team: Michael Stack, Jack Scannell, Tadhg Culhane, Kieran Scanlon, Brian Mulroe, Paddy Fitzgerald, Pádraig Costello, Edmond Horan, Gary Culhane (0-2), Shane O’Sullivan, Shane Culhane (0-4), Killian Lenihan (1-1), Edward Mulvihill (0-2), Ger Lyons (2-3), David Horan. Subs all used: Oliver Wallace, James McSweeney, Cormac Healy, Darragh Leahy.

West Intermediate League
Glin 1-10 Athea 0-15
It was a good battling never say die performance by what was probably the youngest ever Glin first team ever. Athea were the much better team in sec half but we never gave in and kicked the last 1-1. Team: S O’Sullivan, T. Woulfe, J. Fitzgerald, P. Cregan, C. Shine, J. Sheehan, A. Mulvihill, R. Culhane, S O’Connor, F.  Henderson, O. Wallace, P. O’Connor, E. Mulvihill, James Wallace, C. Culhane. Subs: T. Scanlon, C. Healy, J. Scannell, JD Hickey.

Glin Development Project Works…

https://gf.me/u/y9xyxz

Glin Development Association has undertaken many projects during 2020 to improve and enhance the many facilities that have been particularly beneficial to the entire community during this exceptional time of lockdowns and social distancing. Glin Heritage Walks, The Pontoon at Glin Pier, Tidy Towns maintenance, The Glin Fairy Trail, Glin Town Park Lighting, Christmas Lighting and Glin Playground repairs are just some of the projects which needed our attention and we have incurred a lot of expenses completing these works. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are unable to organise our usual fund-raising events to cover costs of works completed and our plans for the coming year. Glin Development Association has a GoFundMe page and we are appealing to the local community, to friends and relatives abroad, and to the many visitors who enjoy our facilities to donate. Contact any member of Glin Development Association if you need further information.

Prayer before an Examination:

Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you that my value is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me.  Come into my heart so that we can walk through this time together.  Help me, not only with this test, but the many tests of life that are sure to come my way.

As I take this exam, bring back to my mind everything I studied and be gracious with what I have overlooked.  Help me to remain focussed and clam, confident in the facts and in my ability, and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me.   Amen
