The medals for 2011 All county hurling league division three will be presented to the players at the joint race night to be held by the two GAA clubs in the Castletown Inn on August 4.


Congratulations to Mrs Hannah Delaney, Coole on reaching the ripe old age of 101 last week.


A act play will be presented by Castletown GAA club at the community hall, Castletown on Saturday August 25. The title is ‘The Pitch’ in which Philly Halton (played by the author Shane Connaughton), now in his 80s, reminisces about his footballing days and rakes over old grudges while struggling to survive alone on a small holding in Cavan. His arch enemies the Maguires want to acquire his farm and get him into the new nursing home. It is being played by a professional theatre group for the club’s social initiative and we welcome all young and old, players and former players and the long suffering wives and mothers to come along. Admission €10.


Sympathy is extended to Fintan Phelan, Rushall on the death of his sister Margo Delaney, Mountrath who died last week. The late Margo is also mother of Mrs Breda Dooley, Butterisland. Sympathy is extended to Margo’s many relatives in the area
