O' Loughlin Gaels Camogie Minors
O' Loughlin Gaels will face Clara again this weekend in the Roinn C championship county final. They overcame a strong challenge from Ballyhale on Sunday morning to progress to the final stage of the competition. With a bitterly cold wind favouring the southern goal, it was an evenly contested game throughout. Proving the importance of a panel,O' Loughlin Gaels were reduced to 14 girls when Ailbhe Galwey sustained an injury. With our only substitute already playing, Ballyhale capitalised on this with two quick goals. This left the half time score at Ballyhale 3-2 OLG 3-0- our 3 goals scored by Jennifer O' Keeffe, Nyah Egan and Edel Mulholland. The return of walking wounded ensured a tight second half and the match could have gone any way. A second goal from Jennifer O' Keeffe and points from Leah Broaders and Leah Lanigan kept us in touch. Our girls showed great team spirit and support play to hang on for a 4-5 to 4-3 victory.Well done to everybody involved.
Clara will provide a strong challenge for our young team next weekend. They have already won the league and with some of their minor team lining out regularly for the Clara Intermediate team, they are not short of match practice. We wish our girls well in their bid for silverware

1976 40th ANNVERSARY REUNION
It was an evening to remember at O'Loughlin Gaels GAA Club on Saturday evening as the men of '76 gathered to remember a year never to forget for O'Loughlin Gaels GAA. The players of the successful u14, u16 and u21 teams enjoyed a visual slideshow of old photographs to the humorous narration of one JJ Cullen who celebrated events of that year and took the opportunity to remind fella's of better hairlines, less shapely body forms and good times. Former club president Eamon Doyle took the players on a journey through the development of the club and facilities from that era to the present,t and Club Chairman Brian Murphy was on hand to welcome the players and their families -some of whom are ever present in the club and others who were back for the first time in many years. Brian too was reminded of his own achievement in that year as an All-Ireland winner with the Cork senior hurlers with a generous applause. County Board Vice Chairman and O'Loughlin Gaels man Conor Denieffe addressed the players and welcomed the clubs' efforts to pay homage to a successful time for the club. The Tom Walsh cup was present also as was the u21 trophy... the lads were u21 County Champions in 1976 and 40 years later O'Loughlin Gaels are still u21 County Champions. - not bad going!!!
The sheer delight at each others presence was palpable throughout the evening testimony to the fact that next door in the bar the TV screens were transmitting footage of history being made in Chicago as Ireland beat the All-Blacks for the very first time. The lads had their eye to it alright but they were more interested in hearing each others stories and enjoying the refreshment provided by the reunion committee of John Skehan, Anthony Bergin, John Joe Cullen, Pat Cantwell, Sean Tyrrell and Brian Murphy.
The Club will be running a Defibrillator Course open to ALL members. Anyone interested in taking part please text 087 229 8028 to register your interest. You never know.. you might save someone's life!

Currently there are about 48,000 people living with Dementia in Ireland. The Alzheimer Society of Ireland aims to improve the lives of people living with the disease and provides support for their families. There has been a lack of funding in recent years and Shane is hoping help, starting with the Fun Run.
