The tragic death on Thursday last of Vincent Wyles, Aughacasla has plunged the entire area into deep shock and sadness. Vincent was a singer and musician with the “Castle Ramblers” a new local young and upcoming band, he was a born entertainer taking part in Camp Youth Club Drama productions and even in the last few weeks he took part in the Charity fundraising Mock Wedding in Castle. Vincent is a huge loss to his family, his partner Amy and little son Colm Paul, his mother Breda and sisters Lisa and Anne Marie. He will be sadly missed by his Uncles, Aunts and all his extended family, his many many friends and the community of Castlegregory and beyond where he was known and loved and where he made a real difference during his all too short life of 25 years on this earth. Sympathy is extended to all the family. Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam dilís.
The death of Catherine “Ciss” O Donnell, nee Dowd, London and late of Goulane, Castlegregory occurred in Wimbledon recently. Catherine’s husband, the late Jimmy “Sand” O Donnell was a native of Slieve Camp and they both visited regularly down through the years. Catherine reached the great old age of 97 years. She was laid to rest in London following Requiem Mass in St. Winifreds Church, Wimbledon. Sympathy is extended to her daughters Margaret and Bernie and her son John.

The gentle Welshman had his wish come true on Friday night when many old friends came to wish him well, including Ashes darts team of yesteryear, Johnny Kennedy, Jack Murray, Peter Moore, Frankie Herlihy, and John and Susan Fitzpatrick. Dave Frizell, on behalf of all of us presented him with a lovely clock bearing an etching of Ashes Pub and Caherconree done by Christy Deane.

Senior-We suffered our first defeat of the year at the weekend, going down to a strong An Ghaeltacht team, 2-18 to 0-9. In hurricane-like conditions in Gallarus, we started against the wind, which literally pinned us in our first half for the majority of the half. Emmet Kennedy, Genie and the two Lenihans battled hard in the first half yet we were unable to cope with the elements, coupled with good An Ghaeltacht pressure and the scores started to flow against us. Shane Foley and Johnny Deane saw little of the action, yet they managed to create a few chances when the ball came their way. Down seventeen points at half time, we had the aid of the wind in the second half. We began well, with Genie leading the charge, kicking five points in the second half. The full forward line benefitted from the huge wind and the long passing, yet while we converted point scoring opportunities, goal chances never materialised. Credit is due to the hosts, they were far fitter than us, even at this early stage of the season. Best for us were Genie, Shane Foley, Emmet Kennedy and Gerard Farrelly. TEAM: Conor Guilfolyle, Andrew Finn, Gareth O Donnell, Paddy Shea, Ger Farrelly, Eamonn Hickson (0-2), Colm Barry, Eamon Lenihan, Ger Lenihan (0-1), Kenneth Quirke, Genie Farrell (0-5), David Clifford, Shane Foley, Emmet Kennedy, Johnny Deane, (0-1) SUBS: Jaime Finn, Declan Lindsey, John Bowler, Daniel O Connell, Jaime Quirke, Shane Scanlon, Eoghan O Neill, Denis O Shea. We are playing in the Paudi O Sé tournament at the weekend, our first game is in Annascaul at 12 on Saturday.
U14 team – West Kerry Round 1 Annascaul/Lispole and Gaeltacht met in round 1 of the West Kerry Un14 league in Gallarus last Thursday evening. Our lads turned in a great first half playing some free flowing football at times to lead 3-6 to 0-3 at half time. However with wind advantage in favour of the home side in the second half Gaeltacht rallied well leaving the score 4-11 to 5-6 at the end in our favour. Rian O’Sullivan who score 3-7 was outstanding while Brian Kennedy, Cathal Ferriter, Joe Kennedy and Sean Brosnan also impressed. Fixture this coming week at home to Dingle.
