YOUGHAL TOWN COUNCIL AGM

FAMILY FORTUNES AS SANDRA AND MICHELLE BECOME YOUGHAL’S FIRST SINN FEIN MAYOR AND DEPUTY MAYOR.

By Christy Parker Youghal has its first ever Sinn Fein Mayor as the Town Council elected Cllr Sandra McLellan to the chair at its June AGM. Cllr McLellan took the chain of office by 7 votes to 2 before a unique family act, saw her sister-in-law and Sinn Fein colleague Cllr Michelle Hennessy, elected deputy-mayor. Following a pre-election pact, Fianna Fail agreed to support Cllr McLellan’s candidacy. She was duly proposed by Cllr Hennessy and seconded by Cllr Sammy Revins. Cllr Barbara Murray (FG) then proposed Cllr Michael Beecher (FG). The ensuing vote saw Cllrs McLellan, Hennessy, Revins (FF), Linehan Foley (FF), Coyne (FF), Burke (Greens) and Daly (Labour) elect a delighted, smiling Cllr McLellan. Cllr Linehan Foley then proposed Cllr Hennessy, for deputy-mayor and was again seconded by Cllr Revins. Cllr Hennessy, who is

and was again seconded by Cllr Revins. Cllr Hennessy, who is married to Cllr McLellan’s brother

married to Cllr McLellan’s brother Tony, was elected unopposed. Cllr McLellan carries the mayorship into only her second term as a councillor. She was also elected to Cork County Council for the first time at the recent local elections She is mother to two girls and a boy aged 11 to 20 and in recent years overcame a difficult battle against cancer. She says jobs creation as a priority for her office and hopes to see "Phase 2 completed in the Youghal Enterprise Centre, involving four more units and a garage being opened in the coming year." Proceeding, the mayor says she "would strongly encourage our councillors to get actively involved in the various committees to which they have been elected and in that way to work hard to cre- ate employment opportunities for the good of the town. Of course," she concludes, "I also sincerely hope we will have a coun- cil that will work together throughout its lifespan."

Committees The brief meeting saw councillors elected to various committees for the coming five-year term. These transpired as follows:

ELECTION TO COMMITTEES:

Amalgamated Municipal Authorities of Ireland (AMAI): Cllrs Linehan Foley, McLellan and Hennessy; Vocational Education Committee (VEC): Cllr Burke; Irish Public Bodies Mutual Insurance (IPBMI);Cllr Daly Harbour Municipal Policy Committee: Cllrs Burke, Hennessy, Linehan Foley and Beecher Heritage Municipal Policy Committee: Cllrs Burke, Revins,.

New heads on the block! The meeting saw councillors Eoin Coyne and Donie Daly take their seats in the chamber for the first time. They were warmly welcomed by their new colleagues, with the general sentiment that ’new blood’ (preferably at someone else’s expense naturally!) is always a positive development. The pre-election agenda was chaired by outgoing Mayor Ollie Casey subsequently retired from service after 15 years tenure in the local authority. Having given up his chair and transferred his chain of office to Cllr McLellan he was warmly applauded from the room and into retirement. A new era begins .

The Dempsey Family Sporting Achievements '08/'09

By Michael Twomey Sporting excellence can run in the family but by any standard the last number of months was an exceptional one for the Dempsey family. The Dempsey’s association with sport in Youghal is well documented. Their involvement goes back to the beginning of the 70s when Jack Dempsey took over the Youghal Athletic Club. Jack’s devotion to the club and to other sports such as camogie was recognised recently when he was awarded with induction to the Usual Place Sports Hall of Fame. It was the beginning of a fruitful period for the family. Jack’s daughter, Mary was awarded athlete of the year ar her club, St. Finbarr’s in Cork. That success was quickly followed when his son Ken picked up player of the year for Youghal United Football Club for his contribution in a promotion winning season that also saw the team win the Beamish Cup. Just when the dust had settled in the household Jack’s grand- daughter, Clodagh Whelan was nominated player of the year for her efforts with the under-12s Clashmore Soccer Club. Jack has fond memories of his time with the athletic club which he over- looked for thirteen years. We started it in ’72 with the late Jimmy Drake and we had some wonderful achievements. We travelled to Wales and won all-Irelands. I remember one night we had 94 juve- nille athletes at the small pitch in St. Raphael’s. The only facilities we had were the red galvanised shed for changing rooms and the pitch, which was only about 300 metres all round, he recalled. Jack once took a trip to Dublin to pick up coaching tips for train- ing youngsters at a seminar given by Olympic athlete, Eamonn Coughlan. I asked him privately afterwards and told him we had poor facilities and what could I do to et the best out of the kids. He told me the best training for running is running. He signed his name to it and I put it up on the wall in the shed, he said. Jack expressed his pride and surprise at receiving such a prestigious award. I was totally and pleasantly surprised, and naturally I’m very happy. The baton of sporting excellence looks safe in the Dempsey family and is set to run and run.

KILLEAGH GAA NEWS

While the disappointment of being out of the senior hurling cham- pionship is hard to take we still lie second with 13 points and 6 games played on the league table and the chance of silverware should give us great incentive to continue hurling for the summer. And with our Junior teams both hurling and football all still in championship there is a still a busy summer to look forward to. There was no winner of the lotto. The numbers were 3, 17, 22. The jackpot now stands at 1,600 euro. Fixtures: Junior A Hurling Championship vs Fr O’Neills on Sat 27th in Youghal at 4pm. Hurling league division 3 vs Watergrasshill on Sun 28th in Killeagh at 12:30pm. Fast approaching is our annual Golf Classic which will be held in Youghal Golf Club on July 9th, 10th and 11th. It is very important that this event be supported by the parish as it raises valuable funds for the club and is also a very enjoyable day out. Anyone interested in entering a team should contact Ray Rochford or any club member to book their place. Thanks to all those who helped out on the gate last Saturday night for the junior hurling championship game. Best of luck to the Junior A Hurlers on Saturday evening. Support is vital.

LARGE URNS VANDALISED AT LIGHTHOUSE HILL

By Michael Twomey.

Youghal Garda have inter- viewed a number of youths fol- lowing a night of vandalism on Friday the 12th last. Three large urns containing palm trees were smashed on the lighthouse hill of the town. Eight urns had been installed by 6pm Friday, by 11.30pm the damage was done. The urns are made of pre-cast concrete, stand approximately at four feet and were bolted to the ground for extra security. They had been installed by Floral Decor Ltd. at the request of Youghal Tidy Towns. A Garda source said the investigation is

ongoing. A large group of youths were in the area at 11.30pm. A number of people have been identified. We are now tracking CCTV footage, he said. The company who erected the urns returned Saturday morning to com- plete their work. Billy Baker of Floral Decor Ltd. expressed his disappointment. We were asked to put these up to enhance the town. We finished work at 6pm and then some yobs came along and this is what you get. Mr. Baker remarked that destroying the

urns would have taken ’quite a bit of work’ and is pessimistic about the survival of the remaining five urns. Apparently these lads have been caught. My main fear was that the urns would be stolen so they were fixed to the ground with concrete bases and metal plates. I never thought they would be bro- ken. The others will eventual- ly be vandalised. We could be back here tomorrow morn- ing. The funding for the urns was raised by the Youghal Tidy Towns Committee. Mr. Baker said he will have to discuss where to go from here with local Committee member Ned Brennan. The urns, which had a Greek style appearance had been import-

ed from Holland and filled with Butia Palms. Mr. Baker said that he had wanted to give the lighthouse hill a ’Mediterranean feel’. It is understood that those involved in the vandalism had been drinking. The remaining urns have as yet remained undamaged

The sixth mat was reserved for beginners, An experienced bowler took three new people and concentrated on showing the basics of delivering a bowl. Before the session ended all three were bowl- ing quite well. It is very encouraging to see new members com- ing into the club and anyone who would like to sample bowling is very welcome. There is no charge for the first lesson. The prize winnners this week with a very good score were :- Joe Martin and Jack Donoghue. Well done. Bowling continues next Tuesday, usual time and venue.

A large number of children and spectators turned out and enjoyed one of our rare sunny evenings as well as the fun. A special word of thanks to all who helped out on the evening and to our sponsors James Tobin Tallow and the KGK Badminton Club who together with the outstanding support of the Knockanore Community Council made this event such a success. First and second place winners from the under 8 age-group upwards(events indicated with * only) will go forward to represent our club at the county final due to be held on Sunday June 28th.

Aura Youghal getting people fighting fit for summer

Aura Youghal Leisure Centre are offering people who are intent on achieving beach body perfection the opportunity to get into shape by introducing their Outdoor Boot Camp which kicks off on the 16th June.

The camp which runs all summer is suitable for all age groups

and is an ideal way to get into shape for the upcoming summer sea- son. Everyone wants a beach body when they realise that summer

is only around the corner. June is always a busy month at the cen-

tre, so we decided to develop an exercise programme to help peo- ple shape up and improve their fitness for their holidays, explained Aura Youghal Leisure Centre Operations Manager, Tracy Kenneally.

The programme is focused on helping people to tone up and to get into shape quickly. It is a tough workout, but it is as much about having fun as it is about working out, she continued.

Keeping fit and staying healthy can be a challenge and people are

always looking for the best and most practical way for them to stay

in shape. There are so many choices out there and sometimes it is

hard to find the programme that suits you best. These classes are an intense physical workout that centres on free body work such as sit ups, lunges and shuttle runs. They take place outdoors which gives people a great opportunity to enjoy an exercise routine that is somewhat different to the standard gym workout, explains Tracy. The Outdoor Boot Camp classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6. 15 p.m. and lasts for 45 minutes. The cost is 80 for a booking of ten sessions and they are also avail- able for Pay as You Go customers. Aura is also reminding people that the popular Boxercise classes have returned. This unique class provides a great physical work- out. Boxercise is an ideal way to tone up and let off some steam after a hectic day. If you are looking for something different then these classes provide a great alternative to the standard fitness class. Classes take place every Friday at 12 noon and 8 p.m. and last for 45 minutes. The cost is 80 for a ten week session and they are also available for Pay as You Go customers, giving people the opportunity to try it out to see if it is something which suits them. For anyone looking for value during the recession you need look no further than Aura Youghal which is now offering people the opportunity to exercise for free. Aura s current special member- ship offer means that if you sign up during the month of June you get the rest of the month for free. First payment required will be for the month of July. Those wishing to avail of the offer must sign up for a minimum of three months and facilitate payment by direct debit. For further information on the Aura Outdoor Boot Camp, Boxercise classes or any other classes please contact reception on

Youghal is Ireland's Third Cleanest Town

by anna Dowling Good news for Youghal from the Irish Business Against Litter sur- vey. Of 60 towns surveyed, Youghal ranked as the third cleanest - its best ever result in the regular survey. Credit must go to the local Tidy Towns committee, the Town Council workers and the busi-

nesses and people of Youghal. The survey, conducted by An Taisce on behalf of Irish Business Against Litter, also brought good news for Cobh and Midleton. They improved their status from "littered" and "moderately lit- tered" respectively to "clean to European norms". IBAL sound a note of warning as they release the positive results which see 41 out of the 60 towns scoring satisfactorily.

We are delighted to have so many areas classed as Clean to

European norms in this first round of the 2009 litter league, commented Dr. Tom Cavanagh, Chairman, Irish Business Against Litter. However, we fear a deterioration over the summer as weekend cleaning budgets get slashed in many areas. We saw over the June Bank holiday

weekend how beaches were seriously affected by the lack of weekend cleaning, and it is quite evident in this survey with beaches in Buncrana and Tramore being classed as seri- ously littered . While most of the spe- cific sites in Youghal scored very well, "clean to European norms", Green’s Quay was the one spot where there is room for improvement. The sur- vey found it to be "moderately littered" mostly due to alcohol related litter - cans and bottles. But the overall picture is a positive one - Youghal is the third cleanest town in Ireland, good news as we approach the peak of

ENROLMENTS SURGE AT AURA SUMMER CAMPS AS YOUGHAL FAMILIES CHOSE TO HOLIDAY AT HOME

Aura Youghal Leisure Centre has experienced a huge increase in the number of parents enrolling their children in its summer camp programme as more local families chose to holiday at home this

year.

We

have

been hugely surprised by the interest in this

year s

been hugely surprised by the interest in this year s summer camps. Enrolments are way ahead

summer camps. Enrolments are way ahead of expectations. Parents booking camps have told us that they are not taking the family on foreign holidays this year and that they see our camps as a great way to treat their children to something different, explained Aura Youghal Leisure Centre Operations Manager, Tracy Kenneally. Families have become extremely conscious about what they are spending, which is a sign of the times. Children though, are still looking for things to do during the long summer holidays and par- ents are telling us that our fun summer camp programme is provid- ing them with one alternative to holidaying abroad that doesn t break the bank, Tracy added. Aura Youghal is set to become a hive of activity throughout July and August as it hosts a variety of week long summer camps for children of all ages. Its Fun Multi-Activity Camp takes place from Monday, July 27th to Friday, July 31st and from Tuesday, August 4th to Friday, August 7th. The camp includes team building activities, outdoor

sports, nature trails, treasure hunts if the weather permits, arts and crafts, swimming, supervised water games and face painting. A fancy dress party will take place on the last day of each camp. The camps take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The July camp costs 80, while the four-day August camp costs 70. Aura members can avail of a 10% for both camps. Aura Youghal is also catering for the huge number of children who regularly use its swimming facilities by organising Intensive Swimming Lessons . The lessons provide a lot of individual atten- tion and are designed to ensure that participants improve their skills and make progress over a short period of time. The week long lessons are open to swimmers of all levels and get underway on Monday, July 6th with other week long lessons due to commence on Monday, July 13th, Monday, July 20th, Monday, July 27th, Tuesday, August 5th, Monday, August 10th and Monday, August 17th. Classes take place from 9 a.m. to 9.45 a.m. and from 10 a.m. to 10.45 a.m. each day and cost 50 per week with a 10% discount for Aura members. Aura s Outdoor Boot Camp is also proving to be a big hit with those over 16 years of age who are intent on getting into shape and staying in shape during the summer. The camp is a great way to enjoy an exercise routine outside of the gym. It provides an intense physical workout. Participants do not rely on gym equipment or weights to work out and the focus is on sit ups, lunge and shuttle runs, Tracy explained. The 45 minute camp takes place every Tuesday and Thursday at 6.

Non members can take advantage of Aura Youghal s Pay

as You Go option with each class costing 8.80. The classes are free to those who are already Aura members.

The group went by air from Cork to Rennes where they were met at the airport by Jean-Claude Perrier, President of Larmor Twinning, committee members and the leader of the Larmor Choir. Bienvenue Having travelled the 1.5hr journey by bus, which was provided by Larmor Twinning, the group were welcomed at Salles des Algues by Mayor Victor Tonnere. As they relaxed with a welcoming drink the group were introduced to their host families. Tour of Larmor Plage On Wednesday morning the group assembled for a walking tour of Larmor Plage while the officers of Youghal Twinning attended a meeting with the council. In the afternoon there was a visit to Cite de la Voile (Sailing City) where the group were taken on a guided tour of the Eric Tabarly centre. Eric was a famous yachtsman who built his own boats, not only was he successful in all of the races he competed in, but managed to be ahead of his competitors by several hours. At the Eric Tabarly centre you don’t need to be a sailor to take part in the amazing human and technological adven- ture that is off shore racing and sailing, it is the only centre of its kind in Europe. Reception and Official Dinner At 8.00pm the group were the official guests of the Mayor Victor Tonnere and the Larmor council. On this occasion gifts were exchanged between both councils, both Twinning Committees and both choral. Mayor Oliver Casey thanked the mayor, the Larmor twinning, and Larmor Choral group for their hospitality and invit- ed them to visit Youghal in 2010. Chairperson Mary Linehan- Foley said that her late father Paddy was one of the first group to visit Larmor Plage and sign the charter, and she was proud to be there with two of her children which of course brings Youghal Twinning to the third generation. She thanked the people of Larmor Plage for their welcome and hospitality and hopes to see them back in Youghal next year. Gifts exchanged and compliments returned it was time for the social part of the evening which began with some light entertainment from the Youghal Choral Group. For this small group of singers accompanied on the organ by their leader Ms Patricia Whyte it was quality not quantity. Keeping to the nautical theme they began with "The Fishermans Night Song" followed by "Danny Boy" and finishing with "Sailing". 13 year old Sarah O’Donoghue upped the tempo with "Mo Ghilla Mear" on fiddle accompanied by Patricia on the organ. Laura O’Donoghue and the youngest of the group, 7 year old Shauna Foley had us all joining in the chirpy little number "Summer Holiday" again accompanied by Patricia. Each member in turn received raptural applause. The night continued with a wonderful dinner hosted by the Larmor Plage council and dancing into the early hours. Thursday morning was free to visit Lorient or other places of interest. Some choir members were whizzed across the bay by boat to visit the Citadel of St.Louis. Trip to Pont Scoriff In the afternoon there was a trip to Pont Scoriff where the group had a very interesting visit to the Odysseum and the courts of the trades of Art. Highlight of the Visit The Choral Concert at the ancient Church of Notre Dame de la Lamour was no doubt the highlight of the visit. The Youghal Choral and "Les vents de la mer" looked splendid in their evening wear. Una Whyte opened the programme with a selection of Irish

airs on the harp - "The Blackbird", "Carolans Concerto" and "Eibhlin Geal Chuin". Followed by Sarah O’Donoghue with Mo Ghille Mear, on the fiddle accompanied by Patricia on the organ. Among the pieces which the Youghal Choir sang were the very haunting "Pie Jesu" and "The Last Rose of Summer" each piece was applauded from the beginning and as the final applause died down the Larmor Choir sprang to their feet to give Youghal a standing ovation but it was only what they deserved. Patricia, her musicians and singers did Youghal proud. The 50 strong Larmor Choir entertained for the second half of the programme receiving tumultuous applause throughout, one of the lighter pieces being "The Cackling Witches" from Macbeth. They invited the Youghal Choir to join them in the grand finale, "Speed your Journey" sung in both French and English. It was an amazing finish to a wonder- ful evening of music. Buffet Dinner hosted by Larmor Twinning Dinner, music, wine and son continued in nearby Salles des Algues hosted by the very hardworking Larmor Committee. At midnight the dancing stopped and with the hall in darkness President of the Larmor Twinning entered carrying a birthday cake to celebrate Clara Foleys 16th birthday, once again sharing their twinning spirit of kindness and hospitality. Friday 12th June Friday morning was free to enjoy the sunshine, Jean Charles and Angela O’Donnell renewed their friendships with Jean le Roux and his wife Marguerite. Jean is one of the last living survivors rescued by the Youghal Lifeboat in October 1963 when the boat the "Fetes des Ondes" which had sailed out of Lorient was lost off Ardmore. The remains of the wreck can still be seen at low tide. Afternoon Guided Tour of the Port of Lorient Lorient a name which evokes oriental splendours was built in 1666 with a royal order from Louis XIV who gave the "useless wastelands" to East India Company for the construction of their vessels. After the bankruptcy of the East India Company in 1769, Lorient was saved from ruin by the creation of a Royal Navy Shipyard in 1770, followed by a large military port under Napoleon 1st which has remained until the present day. The group were brought to see the nearby "Tour de la decouverte" 39m high built in 1744. All but one of the group made it to the top where they had a fantastic view of the city. Later in the evening many of the group treated their hosts to dinner in one of the local restau- rants. Saturday 13th Bon Voyage At 10.30am a meeting was arranged at Salles des Algues for both committees. Mary Linehan-Foley thanked Jean Claude Perrier for their hospitality and in particular the host families who welcomed the Youghal visitors into their homes and showed them such kind- ness. She invited Jean Claude, the committee, the mayor, council members and the Larmor Choir to Youghal in 2010. Parting Glass At 4.00pm the group met at "Salle des Algues" as the Scots would put it for a "wee deoch an doras" and so it was au-revoir renavo as we made the short journey to Lorient Airport. Our thanks must go to our secretary Colin O’Donoghue for all the hard work he put to make sure everything went without a hitch. Viva la jumelage! Long live Twinning!

Youghal has so much to

Angling Youghal bay is a fishing paradise. Unspoilt, uncrowded and offer- ing great sport, with specially fine bass fishing. At the eastern end of Youghal bay, Knockadoon Head has great spinning or float fish- ing for Pollack and Mackerel, Wrasse, Conger and Dogfish. Along the miles of Youghal Strand the main problem is usually deciding where to pitch your shelter and start fishing - and the answer is just about anywhere as the fish tend to sweep along its entire length. Fancy yourself a real fisherman? Charters Angling is also avail- able in the town with South Coast Charter and The Seahunter ever on the ready to show you a good time. Great fishing starts here! Aquatrek Dinghy sailing, yacht cruises and power boating - it’s all at Aquatrek in Youghal. Dinghies are raced every Wednesday evening and Sunday morn- ing. Scheduled cruises include Baltimore on May Bank Holiday, Isles of Scilly on August Bank Holiday week and Baltimore / Kilmore Quay on the last weekend of September. Power boat courses from introduction to advanced. Includes navi- gation, VHF radio, safety, diesel maintenance. Blackwater River Cruises In stark contrast to some of the other boat trips along the Blackwater river, Tony Gallagher’s trip is a much more relaxed affair. Taking up to 10 guests at a time, Tony stands barefoot at the helm of Maeve, his 28ft half decker. Tony, a natural raconteur with a love and life and a good yarn, knows all of the stories of the river and is the perfect guide for a relaxed trip along one of Europe’s unspoilt major rivers. Pass down the estuary by town under the ’new bridge’ Tony will point out the old Knights Templar fortress at Rincrew, and the almost immediately you will leave the 21st century behind. There are no roads beside you, just a couple of cottages to be seen, and miles of beautiful riverside, where the forests that drip down into the rising tide. Trips run right throughout the summer months, however they are subject to demand. Youghal Dive Charters Youghal Dive Charters offers a state of the art charter boat Sea Hunter with a luxury finish. The boat is one of the best equipped vessels available today both for diving and deep sea fishing. There has been large investment in making Sea Hunter a first class boat. South Coast Charter This charter boat hire company is owned by Skipper Martin Colfer who has been commercially fishing for the last 15 years. Anglers come from far and near to fish the good fishing grounds off this section of the Cork Coast. Our boat is a twin engined catamaran and is new for 2008, the twin hull allows for more deck space, this improves comfort for anglers and sightseers. The safety of our pas- sengers is of paramount importance to us. Our boat is the perfect

MAJOR DEEP-SEA ANGLING COMPETITION FOR YOUGHAL 27TH & 28TH JUNE 2009

An estimated 100 anglers are set to take to the waters of Youghal Bay to take part in one of the biggest angling competitions on the South Coast this year. Running over two days, 27th and 28th June 2009, ’Youghal’s Deep Sea Angling Competition’ will feature two categories, Charter Boats and private boats.

With cash prizes totalling in excess of 2,500 the competition is already attracting major interest from some of the top anglers in the country.

Deep-sea angling in Youghal has seen somewhat of a revival over the past number of years with two ’state of the art’ Charter Boats operating from the Bay; The ’Rebecca C’ operated by South Coast Charter’s Martin Colfer and ’Seahunter’ operated by Youghal Dive Charter’s Gavin Tivy. "Youghal has always been a favourite spot for anglers down through the years and thankfully the industry here is on the up. Angling is widely regarded as the biggest participation sport in the country and we felt the time was right to capitalise on that and introduce the first deep-sea angling competition here for many years" said Gavin. "We are thrilled with the interest, and it has far exceeded our expectations" To add to the occasion Youghal Chamber of Tourism & Commerce has organised a number of activities over the weekend to coincide with the spectacle. A ’busking competition’ will run on Saturday 27th June throughout the afternoon in the town, and a range of activities including ’face-painting’ and Barty’s Disco will operate on the quayside on Sunday 28th June. Bookings are still being taken for both competitions. Charter Boat entries cost 50 per person for the weekend, 5.00 per person for the competition and equipment can be rented for 10.00. Entry to the private boat competition is 20.00 per person. The organisers have also indicated that any profits generated from the competi- tions will go to the Youghal RNLI. For further information on Charter Boat Entry contact: Gavin Tivy on: 087-2112488 and Private Boat entries contact: John Murray on: 087-9704241.

Tourist Guide to Services & Shopping in Youghal

CYCLE YOUGHAL

You can find all sorts of suggestions and alternatives by visiting youghalcyclingclub.com or by asking in the Tourist Office in the centre of town near the Clock Gate. The route takes you out of Youghal on the N25 towards Cork on the man road for about one kilometre and then you swing left on the Ballymacoda road - the

R633.

You notice a beautiful marshy area on your left - Ballyvergan Bog -as you turn left on the R633. Just after that left turn there is a Hide from which you can enjoy the wildlife of this very special bog which is both sea water and fresh water. Local Ranger Pat Smiddy has written a beautiful book about the flora and fauna in Ballyvergan Bog - this contains photographs and detailed knowl- edge about the Bog and is well worth reading. There are 4 species

of bat

We continue on towards Ballymacoda. You could take a short detour (500 metres) to the Quality Hotel at Redbarn where a mag- nificent lounge bar enjoys unrestricted views of Youghal Bay and Capel Island but we are heading now towards Ladysbridge. You come to a T Junction - to the left is Ballymacoda , if you take that road you reach Knockadoon - the southern tip of the bay where you can almost touch Capel Island. Maybe another day! At our T Junction we turn right towards Ladysbridge. It is an undulating road with some gentle slopes and descents (nothing too challenging for the cyclist or the walker!). Take your time, breathe the clean air! At Ladysbridge, turn right at the monument and head to Castlemartyr. You could stop in Castlemartyr for a bite to eat, a coffee or something stronger! Stop at the traffic lights as you will be crossing the N25 again, this time heading for Mogeely, a short run. Turn right at Mogeely and the road will bring you back to Killeagh where you rejoin the N25. It is well worth stopping to visit Killeagh Woods where the colour which seeps through the trees, glinting on the streams, is haunt- ingly beautiful, an ancient forest full of surprises and a few well marked routes. The entrance to Killeagh Woods is behind the Old Thatch pub - which serves an excellent meal, bowl of soup, cup of or a pint! This is one of the oldest pubs in Ireland and brings with it a lovely mellow ambience. Killeagh is not a big town - but just count the number of pubs! There are a few possible routes back to Youghal - the most straightforward is the main road the N25 which is a straight run into Youghal. There is a wide hard shoulder for cyclists. It is a gentle, downhill road - and if the wind is with you, throw back your shoulders and sail into Youghal.

the book is available locally and is a real treat.

Aura Youghal has experienced a huge increase in the number of parents enrolling their children in its summer camp programme as more local families chose to holiday at home this year.

"We have been hugely surprised by the interest in this year’s sum- mer camps. Enrolments are way ahead of expectations. Parents booking camps have told us that they are not taking the family on foreign holidays this year and that they see our camps as a great way to treat their children to something different," explained Aura Youghal Leisure Centre Operations Manager, Tracy Kenneally.

"Families have become extremely conscious about what they are spending, which is a sign of the times. Children though, are still looking for things to do during the long summer holidays and par- ents are telling us that our fun summer camp programme is pro- viding them with one alternative to holidaying abroad that does- n’t break the bank," Tracy added.

Aura Youghal is set to become a hive of activity throughout July and August as it hosts a variety of week long summer camps for girls and boys of all ages.

Aura Youghal is also catering for the huge number of children who regularly use its swimming facilities having organised ’Intensive Swimming Lessons’. The lessons provide a lot of indi- vidual attention and are designed to ensure that participants improve their skills and make progress over a short period of time.

The week long lessons are open to swimmers of all levels and they begin on Monday, July 6th with other week long lessons due

to commence on Monday, July 13th; Monday, July 20th; Monday, July 27th; Tuesday, August 5th; Monday, August 10th and the final week on Monday, August 17th. Classes take place from 9 a.m. to 9.45 a.m. and from 10 a.m. to 10.45 a.m. every day and the cost is 50 per week with a 10% dis- count for Aura members.

We are also delighted to inform you of our new and invigorating Fitness Timetable now in operation with classes and courses to suit every one.

The ’Outdoor Boot Camp’ which began on June 15th is suitable for 16 + age group and is an ideal way to get into shape for the upcoming summer season.

"These classes are an intense physical workout that centres on free body work such as sit ups, lunges and shuttle runs. They take place outdoors which gives people a great opportunity to enjoy an exercise routine that is somewhat different to the standard gym workout," explains Aura Youghal Leisure Centre Operations Manager, Tracy Kenneally.

The Outdoor Boot Camp classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6. 15 p.m. and lasts for 45 minutes which is free to members and also available for ’Pay as You Go’ customers.

Further information about each of the summer camps tak- ing place or the new Fitness Timetable is available by con- tacting reception at 024 91614.

YOUGHAL

THE SOUTH COAST’S MOST POPULAR RESORT

Youghal is now recognised as south coasts most popular resort. This stunning holiday destination has been awarded an EU Blue Flag for the beach at Claycastle near the town centre. It’s no won- der that Youghal has become the family destination of choice. The adventurous holiday-maker can choose from a range of activities including power-boating, dinghy-racing, yacht cruising, whale watching, even wreck-diving!For those looking for a more laid-

back experience, visitors can take a relaxing cruise or fishing trip on the Blackwater river - one of Europe’s most unspoilt rivers. Perks Family Entertainment Centre and the Aura Leisure Centre is

a must for all the family and with more holiday homes to rent than any other resort town on the South Coast - including cottages, houses, apartments, guest houses and even luxury villas, many with spectacular views, you will be spoilt for choice.

But this resort is not just about the sea

bars, the live music, the world famous seafood restaurants, the golf and greyhound racing all set in the backdrop of a medieval town of stunning beauty and character.What sets Youghal apart from other resorts however, is its natural beauty, with stunning walks and cycle routes along ecology areas to the historical town centre. Youghal is also a perfect base in which to explore the beau- ty of East Cork and West Waterford. A large number of interna- tionally acknowledged heritage sites and conservation areas are visible along these routes. Youghal is also one of the best pre- served examples of a 13th century town in Europe, and as such has

been designated a ’Heritage’ Town by Failte Ireland. It was built as

a town to defend and control trade on the Blackwater River which leads into the heart of Munster’s rich farmlands.

Youghal’s position was critical to the maintenance of that trade, and access to the most valuable farmland in Ireland. It derives its name from the Gaelic word ’Eochaill’, meaning ’yew wood’, pro- nounced ’Yawl’. You can explore the walls and one of the towers from which it is possible to make out the original layout of the town. Full details on the historic buildings in Youghal, such as the Watergate, Myrtle Grove, Tyntes Castle and St. Mary’s Collegiate Church can be found in our heritage section. The most notable (and photographed) building in the town centre is the fine Clock Tower in the main street, built in 1776 as a gaol (jail) to imprison the renegade Catholics. It was routinely used as torture chamber and was universally regarded as a symbol of terror and tyranny!Sir Walter Raleigh is probably the most famous citizen of Youghal, responsible for bringing two things to Youghal - potatoes and tobacco, as Youghal was the leading trading point in Ireland at the time. Another famous resident of Youghal was the first Earl of Cork, Sir Richard Boyle, who purchased many of the estates of Raleigh.

Boyle’s remains are buried in St. Mary’s Collegiate Church, an 11th century jewel.To fully appreciate medieval and historical Youghal, take a guided or self guided tour around Youghal Heritage Trail , commencing at Youghal Tourist Office.Today Youghal celebrates its past and present in a series of events and festivals throughout the year. For the Irish music and dance enthu- siast Ceoltas Si’ is performed in a number of locations throughout the town, both shows running throughout July and August. Sports enthusiasts can take part in the Youghal Triathlon in July. A fami- ly fun day that celebrates Youghal’s magical medieval past is the annual Medieval Fun Day. Youghal Celebrates History is an annu- al conference when historians from Ireland and abroad gather for animated discussions on Youghal’s heritage.Youghal is ideally geographically positioned. It’s where the beauty of East Cork merges with stunning West Waterford and serves as a perfect base for the holidaymaker. With access to both Cork and Waterford Airports only a 45 minute drive away.

Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year ROCKS

Michelle and Jenny rock East Cork in the search for budding models with specs appeal

RENOWNED onscreen double act Michelle Doherty and Jenny Buckley reversed roles to rally East Cork wannabe models to enter the Irish Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2009 competi- tion. The duo, known for their contrasting outfits, traded styles as they announced details of the annual search for ordinary people who look extraordinary in their glasses. With 2 for 1 offers synonymous with Specsavers, it was fitting that the optical retailer chose the two presenters to demonstrate how two looks are better than one. The annual modelling competition is for males and females who wear specs for optical or fashion pur- poses. Michelle and Jenny donned designer glasses and looked very specsy in their rock style as they encouraged people from the East Cork area to enter the competition. With blonde hair and a pair of sexy specs, model Michelle said:

’Whether you’re a dedicated glasses-wearer or only opt to look ’specsy’ at weekends, and are over 16, the chance to live the cat- walk lifestyle is open to you by entering this fabulous modelling

lifestyle is open to you by entering this fabulous modelling competition.’ Celebrities have played a very

competition.’ Celebrities have played a very important part in upping specs in the fashion stakes, with high profile people like Cheryl Cole, David Tennant, Gok Wan, Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton being pictured looking great in their glasses. Now it is the chance for Irish specs wearers to get all eyes on their style with a chance to scoop modelling representation from top Irish agency Assets, a double page photographic spread in the Star Chic magazine, a hol- iday for two to Thailand courtesy of Tropical Places, a modelling portfolio from top Irish fashion photographer Lili Forberg, a goody bag from Make Up For Ever and a 215 designer eyecare voucher from Specsavers. Newly-transformed brunette Jenny commented: ’People are wak- ing up to the fact that you can transform their look to make an essential style statement by just wearing specs. Two looks are def- initely better than one and with 2 for 1 on designer frames in Specsavers stores nationwide you can get two pairs for just 189. This competition is about opening peoples eyes to the fact that looking ’specsy’ is sexy and each year the Irish Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year focuses on finding girls and boys next door who look amazing in their specs.’ The competition is open to the men and women of East Cork aged 16 and over who are current specs wearers or wear glasses for fashion. In addition, the Irish Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year winner will be guaranteed a place at the celeb-packed International Final in London where a year’s modelling contract with Premier Model Management, an all-inclusive holiday for two to Barbados courtesy of Almond Resorts and many more prizes are up for grabs.

Specsavers store director of the newly opened Specsavers store in Midleton, Marie Roche says: ’So many potential models visit Specsavers stores nationwide. The Irish Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition gives us the opportunity to shout about the talent right on our doorstep who wear their specs loud and proud - and who are great role models for younger specs wear- ers to aspire to.’ The Irish Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year is a modelling competition for ordinary people who look and feel great in their specs. So if you think you’ve got an eye-catching look or want to nominate someone who has, pick up an entry form from Specsavers, Market Green Shopping Centre, Midleton and it could be your chance to launch a whole new career. Entries can also be made by logging on to www.specsavers.ie. The closing date for entries is Sunday 12 July.

Our Choir were in great voice when they participated in a charity concert in May in St. Declan’s Hall. At the last meeting of the Guild, Judy Shinnick gave a very informative and eye opening demonstration on water colours. She made it all look so easy, knowing instinctively what colours to use and how to apply them to their best effect. We even thought we could do it after the class!!! Our annual Summer Outing took place on Tuesday, 9th June. The day dawned full and miserable but by the time we reached Kilmeaden, on our way to New Ross, the sun had begun to shine. Our first stop was the John F. Kennedy Arboretum which is dedi- cated to the memory of JFK and covers an area of 252 hectares. The colour and variety of the shrubs and trees was something to behold. From there we went onto Tintern Abbey in Saltmills, New Ross, which is a Cistercian Abbey and was founded in the 1200s by William, the Earl Marshall, and named after Tintern in Wales. We were entertained with afternoon tea in the Colclouch Memorial Hall by the Saltmills guild of the ICA, where Maria Roe took us through the history of their guild. We had great pleasure in inviting them back to Ardmore on the 19th July to join us for our annual Antique Fair and afternoon tea. We then visited the Ross Tapestries where Ester Brennan amazed us with the history and story of each tapestry, which are based on the heritage of New Ross and Wexford. The tapestries are breathtakingly beautiful and Esther informed us that all the stitching is done, by hand, volun- tarily. We concluded the evening on a very high note, with a gor- geous meal at the Athenaeum House Hotel, Ferrybank, A big thank you to the management and staff for same.

Dates for your Diary 19th July All roads lead to Ardmore for our Annual Antique Fair, St. Declan’s Hall, Ardmore. As with every other year, a great day is assured!!

David Stanton TD questions Education Minister on Youghal Schools.

Cork East Fine Gael TD, David Stanton, recently questioned the Minister for Education and Science in relation to the progress that he had made towards the provision of more primary school places in Youghal, Co Cork. "The Minister had informed me almost 12 months ago that the number of primary school pupils enrolled in the three schools in Youghal at that time was 796. He had also told me in June 2008 that the forward planning section of his department was in the process of identifying the areas where addition significant accom- modation would be required at primary and post primary level for 2009 and onward, and that the primary education requirements in Youghal area would be considered in this context." Twelve months later the Minister still says that the forward plan- ning section of his department is continuing in the process of iden- tifying the areas where significant additional accommodation would be required at primary and post primary level for the com- ing years. He went on to say that educational accommodation requirements in the Youghal area will be fully considered in this context and it is expected that this examination will be completed in the coming months. "I am very concerned about the possible shortage of school places at primary level in Youghal and the need for extra accommodation to be provided and, in some cases, upgraded accommodation to be provided. I will continue to press the Minister on these matters.

INTERMEDIATE HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP YOUGHAL 2-8 V DOUGLAS 2-8 Another epic encounter between two very determined teams, Youghal hurting from defeat to Douglas in the Championship last Year were determined to turn things around this time and by all accounts preperations were going well and confidence was high.Once the ball went in it was obvious this was going to be a hard task for Youghal as Douglas started well and were leasing 1- 4 to a solitary point after 20 minutes and looking the stronger side as the had also missed several chances and could have been out of sight at the break but for some dogged defending in front of Goal by the Youghal rear guard with Cathal O’Laochdha having a superb outing at corner back. All the drama came in the second half however and when Kenneth Walsh goaled it was game on and Douglas seemed to go a bit flat after this a free by free Youghal closed the gap and but for some wayward shooting might have led going into the closing stages. Youghal pulled back to level with a couple of minutes to go through a Leigh Desmond free and from the puck out Douglas one a free which Brendan coleman took magnificently just outside the small square, he was quickly smoth- ered by the Douglas forwards and had no option but pass the ball back to his Goalkeeper Richie Cunningham. Disaster struck as Richie not expecting the pass dropped the ball and the inrunning forwards bundled the ball to the net to leave douglas a goal to the good with time up. From the puck out Youghal one a free, again it was dropped into the square in search of an equaliser and who bet- ter than Damien Ring up from wing back to get on the end of a ball coming accross the box to burry the ball to the back of the Douglas net. It was a game that had everything, drama, tension, excitement, error and brilliance all at the same time which left the crowd in Lisgoold scratching their heads as to what was, what might have been and what will happen next as these two sides will have to do

it all over again.

On reflection manager Micky Downing was happy to get out of jail after conceding the Goal so late on. He was delighted with how this very young side fought their way back from being well behind to come level late on and then after the blow of the Goal on full time to again muster the courage and resolve to get an equaliser. Looking forward however their will be no momentum for either side as the replay will no be for about 6 weeks as Douglas star Eoin Cadogan will be on duty with Cork and they also have Football Championship next week.

If the last three encounters are anything to go by the replay will be

a cracker and fingers crossed a Youghal victory and a quarter final to look forward to. Team: R. Cunningham, M. Cronin, C. O’Laochdha, Barry Ring, B. Coleman, D. Ring, N. Roche, Brendan Ring, K.

The lucky numbers were 1,2,11 and 21 last week and again we have no winner. their were 13 tickets with 3 numbers who share the 200 euro. We were sure with the numbers drawn we would have a winner but came up short. Mondays jackpot will be 17,890 and tickets will be available in the usual outlets. COUNTY BOARD DRAW:

The club are delighted to announce that Tommy Kennedy of Dermot Hearly Estate was the winner of 1,000 euro in the Draw last week. We have had a winner in the last two draws so lets hope the run continues. We had several winners last Year but no big prizes. The Club won a set of Jerseys in an earlier draw that were badly needed and we had them made in the away colours of pre- dominantly Gold. Congratulations also to Donnocha O’Callaghan who was the winner of 150 euro in this Months Draw. The County Draw is our single biggest income in the Club as 65 euro from every ticket sold comes directly back to the Club so you support is vital, and with many people suffering the consequences of the economy aswell as being a bit miffed at the County Board over the Hurlers earlier in the Year we would plead with you to continue to support the Draw as the Club would find it impossible to function without it.

FAMILY FUN DAY: The juvenile Club are running a Family Fun Day on Sunday July 26th where there will be numerous events in the Club at Magniers Hill. There will be entertainment for all the family with an emphasis on parent- child events. It will be a semi sporting day with competitions like Penalty Kicks and long puck etc for the Gaelic Games and we are also hoping to have a rounders demonstration throughout the Day. There will be some seriously entertaining events where you can get one back on your Coaches by throwing spunges at them while they are in the stocks etc. We will be encouraging people to wear fancy dress for the Day and their will be all the usual things like face painting etc. This is the first venture of it’s kind and we would hope to make it an anual event. Planning is in the early stages and all details will be made available with an extensive publicity campaign planned throughout the Month of July. We will be looking for help to run the event from parents and since we started to talk about it several parents have come forward to get involved and they are going to set up a parents committee to help with the running of more events in the future. The first meeting of this organising group is tonight Tuesday at 8:30 in Club Aras and we openly invite anybody who would like to con- tribute in any way to join us for a brain storming session.

Killeagh Take the Spoils in the Under 12 'B' County Camogie Final

On Sunday 14th, Killeagh played Sarsfield in Caherlag in the County Final. This was the third meeting of these teams, this season with Sars coming away victorious on both occasions. Sars went into this game as favourites and justified that tag by registering the first score of the match, raising the white flag after 15minutes. Then in the 23rd minute Hannah laid off a handpass to Leah who found the back of the net. This was the final score of the first half, leaving the scores at

half time Killeagh 1:00 Sarsfield 0:01. After the resumption Leah scored a lovely point, which was quick- ly answered by Sarsfield. After this Sars upped the ante and piled the pressure on, but Killeagh’s defence was equal to this with Ciara Motherway pulling off some excellent saves to keep her goal in tact. A great clearance from defence allowed Hannah to break forward resulting in Killeagh’s second goal of the match which was quickly followed by another point. The match and ebbed and flowed with both defences coming out on top. With the final whistle Killeagh were victorious 2:02 to Sars 2points. After the game Tracy Sheehan complimented both teams for a wonderful performance before presenting the cup to the Killeagh Captain Elana McSweeney and the player of the match trophy to Ciara Motherway. The celebrations then began in ernest with a pit stop to McDonalds enroute home for some much desserved refu- elling. Before continuing on to the village for the customary beep- ing of horns and displaying of the trophy. This was a great team effort by all the players involved in the panel.

The first event is the 15th annual 7 mile non-competitive walk at 7pm on the scenic undulating road race course. 5 euro is the entry fee and all finishers will receive a fin- ishing piece and entry to a draw for many valuable spot prizes. The second event is a 1 mile fun run at 7.30pm which has an entry fee of just 3 euro. Athletes are reminded that due to the large num- bers participating in all events will start on time. Refreshments will be served afterwards. Donoughmore (near Blarney, Co. Cork) is situated on the R619 - Mallow to Coachford road, approximately 12 miles from Mallow.

YOUGHAL ATHLETIC CLUB

Sponsored By Youghal Credit Union

Munster Track and Field Championships U/9 to U/13 Youghal AC had 18 athletes competing at the Munster Track and Field Championships in Templemore on Saturday 6th June and Sunday 7th June last. The U/9, U/10, U/11 2 x team competitions were held in conjunction with the individual U/12 and U/13 events. Weather conditions were atrocious on the Saturday with very strong winds and heavy showers throughout the late after- noon making conditions impossible for the B/13 Javelin and the relays. Under 12 The Youghal athletes had some outstanding performances. The U/12s had to compete in heats in the 600m races on Saturday due to the large entries in same; six were allowed to qualify from the heats from about 22 athletes. Jennifer Hennessy and Emily O’ Keefe went in different heats. Emily had a great run to win her heat and Jennifer came a good second in her heat. Fearghal Curtin won his heat in the boys U/12. It was great to see all Youghal AC

athletes qualify for the finals on Sunday. In the Girls U/12 final Jennifer and Emily went with the leading group together with Sinead Flynn from W. Waterford and Katelyn Long from Carraig na BhFear. At the 200m mark Emily got boxed in and it cost her

a valuable few seconds to go wide to endeavour to catch the lead-

ing girls on the bend. Jennifer fought hard on the final 100m with Sinead Flynn and came very close finishing in a very good 2nd position in a time of 1.52.60. Emily was very unfortunate and was unable to catch Katelyn Long on the final straight and was pipped for 3rd place. However both girls put in formidable performanc-

es finishing in the top four out of 42 entries. Fearghal Curtin got

a bad start but went into the lead after 150 metres and Tadgh

Brennan from Ferrybank the Munster indoor champion in close pursuit. The lads made a clean break from the rest of the field. It was run at a very fast pace and Fearghal held onto the lead and won in a time of 1.45.41. Conor Forde competed in the B/12 60m Sprint and the Long Jump. He narrowly missed out on qualifying from the Sprint heat but ran very well. He finished in the top 12 in the Long Jump where the standard was very high and large numbers were entered. Conor jumped 3.26m. Emily also competed in the G/12 shot and Jennifer came joint 4th in the High Jump clearing 1.15m. Rachel Dunne had a brilliant day sprinting qualifying from the heat and semi- final of the sprint for the final on Saturday. It was a very close fin- ish in the final and after checking the camera the officials announced that Rachel was third much to the delight of the Youghal AC spectators. She beat Katelyn Long of Carraig na bhFear into 4th position who had beaten Rachel in the earlier stages. The Girls U/12 relay was run in horrific conditions on the Saturday and the girls team had no joy. The team included Emily O’ Keefe, her cousin Chloe O’ Keefe, Jennifer Hennessy and Rachel Dunne. Thanks to Chloe and to her parents for travelling to make up the relay team. UNDER 13 In the B/13 javelin Adam Curley had to compete in atrocious con- ditions. The wind and rain made it virtually impossible to throw a javelin. However Adam won his silver medal with his best throw of 19.81m. In the G/13 javelin Heather Curley and Lauren O’ Mahoney also featured in the top three medal positions. Lauren came 2nd with her throw of 17.90m and Heather came third with her throw of 16.07m. These were new PBs for both girls. Heather and Lauren came in the top eight in the Shot; Lauren came 6th and Heather came 7th. Heather also competed in the 60m Hurdles. Corey Broderick competed in the Shot and Long Jump. He was unfortunate in the Long Jump as he broke twice and one of his jumps would have been good enough to get into the top eight if he had not broken. On the Sunday we had entries in the B/9 and B/11 2 x team com- petition. The Boys U/9 won 10 medals; the boys U/11 unfortu- nately did not have any luck on this occasion. In these events each boy runs his own race and the combined times are added; likewise

in the ball throw the combined best throws are added and the com- bined best jumps in the Long Jump. In the B/9 we had 4 athletes competing and the results are as fol- lows; 60m Sprint - 2nd place - Matthew Cody and Peter Buckley 20.66 300m - 3rd place - Peter Buckley and Matthew Cody 115.83 Ball Throw- 2nd place - Jake O’ Brien and Olan Broderick Relay - 3rd place - Matthew Cody, Olan Broderick, Peter Buckley and Jake O’ Brien. In the Boys U/11 team events Diarnuid Clancy and Sean Broderick came eight in the Long Jump put of twent teams which is a very good result. Diarmuid Clancy partnered Padraig McCarthy in the 500m; Diarmuid won his race taking an early lead and Padraig ran well in his eace but unfortunately their combined times did not bring them into a medal position. Sean Broderick and Padraig McCarthy also competed in the Ball Throw. The club had tremendous success overall in Templemore with the following athletes representing the club at the All Irelands inTullamore on 11th and 12th July next in the U/12s and U/13s; G/12 Sprint - Rachel Dunne G/12 600m and High Jump - Jennifer Hennessy B/12 600m - Fearghal Curtin G/13 Javelin - Lauren O’ Mahoney and Heather Curley B/13 Javelin - Adam Curley The boys U/9 also qualified for the All Irelands in Templemore on 27th June but will not be travelling due to holiday arrangements. Well done to all Youghal AC athletes and especially to those who did not win medals on this occasion; keep training as there are lots of fun sports coming up and there is also a Munster B competion on 30th August and an All Ireland B competion at the end of July. Our older juveniles will be competing in Waterford on 20th and 21st June. Best of Luck!
