Congratulations and very well done to Gary Beirne and Laura Redican who were the referees at the half time exhibitions games on Sunday last in Croke park during the all -Ireland football semi-finals. Both players and their families had a great day out in Croke Park. The senior semi -final with Dublin and Kerry was a real cracker and I’m sure in years to come Gary & Laura will be able to say they were actually on the Croke park pitch for one of the greatest football matches in living memory. Don’t be surprised in the future to see Gary or Laura refereeing at senior level in Croke park. You have done us all proud.
Congratulations and best wishes to Noel and Mella Horan on the birth of their new baby boy Aidan, congratulations also to the proud grandparents PJ and Margaret Horan on this their third grandchild in 2013 and the year isn’t over yet….!

Lough Key Triathlon
Best wishes to the various athletes in the parish involved with the Lough Key Tri Club who are competing in the National Series Lough Key Triathlon this coming Sunday in Forest park. For some it will be their first event. As you may have noticed Kesh lake and the roads around the parish has been a hive of activity over the last few week with these local athletes putting in a final effort before this upcoming event. There will be over 450 people participating at this national event and Kiltubrid parish is sure to be well represented. Best of luck to all involved.
