Camogie News:  Ruan u15 Camogie team went to Ballyea on Wednesday evening for a blitz which also included Whitegate. A slow start in the first match meant Ruan were chasing the game. The Ruan girls were back in contention until a late goal for Ballyea closed it out 4:2 to 2:3. The match was played at a very high standard with fabulous skills on show. The second game against Whitegate was a different affair with Ruan on the up from the start taking a commanding lead with some superb score taking. Ruan never looked in any danger in what was a more physically challenging match winning 7.7 to 1:0.

Well done to all the girls, on another excellent performance. Fantastic effort, skills and determination was shown by the girls. Ruan abú.

Social Justice Ireland have released the following interesting statistics. Since the onset of the recession the number of people in poverty in Ireland has increased by more than 100,000.   Today there are more than 750,000 people living in poverty in Ireland.  More than 57 per cent of those in poverty are people who are retired, students, people in caring roles, people who are ill or people with a disability. If Government wishes to address and close this divide future policy must prioritise those at the bottom of the income distribution.  These policies must be designed to address the wide variety of households and adults in poverty. We, as Church have a voice in this. Killaloe Diocese JPIC committee encourages you to write to your local politician and local representatives to ensure they are working hard to alleviate this issue.

NET MINISTRIES:- INVITATION TO PARENTS AND INTERESTED ADULTS.

            To find out more about the NET MINISTRIES project, you are invited to a meeting in Crusheen Meeting Room - at the back of the Church on this Thursday night, July 28th at 8.30 pm. A lot of planning has to take place for the project to be a success and the help of parents who would like to hand on an active faith to their young people would be very welcome.  NET MINISTRIES.are a group of young adults in their early twenties who give up a year or two of their time to work in parishes with other young people, talking about their own faith and helping young people to deepen and understand their own faith. At the invitation of our Cluster, a NET MINISTRIES team will be working in this cluster of parishes from September onwards - they will be living in Crusheen but will work across the four parishes.. Each week from now on there will be an item in the Newsletter about the project and explaining how interested adults can help. Watch this space!!
