SENIOR ALL COUNTY LEAGUE: On Friday evening an entertaining All County senior hurling league fixture against Bennettsbridge in Pairc Sheamuis Stiophain had to be abandoned due to a non contact, knee injury to the impressive James Stephens wing back, Harry Wallace which happened just ten minutes into the second half. The teams were level at half time, 0-10 to 1-7 after a keenly contested first thirty minutes but, on the resumption James Stephens had just taken the lead with a well taken point when the unfortunate injury happened. By the time the para medics had dealt with the injured player, and transported him to hospital, there was no appetite to continue the fixture, much to the approval of both sides. We wish Harry a speedy recovery.
On Tuesday night Pairc Sheamuis Stiopháin hosted a very fine game between James Stephens and Dicksboro. Fielding only four championship starters, the Village youngsters put on a determined and much improved display. The sides were level at 0-8 apiece at the interval and while Dicksboro grabbed three late points for a 0-16 to 0-13 victory, the work of Richie Hayes, Robbie Hayes, Conor Browne, Niall Mullins and others deserved a closer result.
HURLER'S CO-OP DRAW: Congratulations to Michael & Annette Fitzgibbon, Springfield, who won the second prize, an exhotic holiday, valued at € 2,500 in the third round draw in the Hurler's Co-op draw. Paddy & Maria Neary won €150 and the "Share a Dream Foundation" won €100.00.
The Fourth Round Draw provided spectacular results for nine of the members. First prize and a car went to Claire O'Dwyer, Cashel Downs, Padraig Lawlor wins a trip to Monart Spa, Claire Larkin, Riverview wins a trip to Kellys, Rosslare while cash wins arrived for popular local artisan butcher and one time hardy corner back Dermot Grogan, Alison Hehir, Ann Doyle, Eamonn Mernagh, Philip Cross and Nicky Dreeling. From a total of thirty prizes, James Stephens subscribers won nine. Great credit again must go to Catherine Kinsella, Michael McLoughlin, elsie Cody, Tom Keane and Pat Millea who led the biggest sale of Hurlers c?o-Op tickets in any club outside Piltdown over the thirty one years of the draw.
CEMETERY MASS: The annual cemetery mass for deceased family members takes place in Foulkstown Cemetery on Thursday week, 30th July at 7.30pm. The organising committee has issued an appeal to those who might have "a bit of spare time" to help care for adjoining graves of families who are elderly and/or who have no living relative locally and consequently have no one to do the maintenance. As usual a huge attendance is expected for this popular ceremony of remembrance.

Uachtarán, An Cumann Camogiochta 2015-2018
Congratulations to Catherine Neary who was formally invested as President of the Camogie Association on Saturday 28 March at the Annual Congress in Croke Park. Catherine will serve a three year term in the position. She leads the Association at a time when there are huge challenges, most notably the closer bonding with the GAA and a major review of fixtures at every level.
Catherine comes from one of the great GAA families in Kilkenny and her sister Rita is currently Secretary of James Stephens Camogie Club. Her nieces Orla and Aoife are hugely involved as players and her brother Paddy is Vice Chairman of the GAA club. Catherine honed her very effective administrative skills first with James Stephens Camogie club, then as Kilkenny County Chairperson, Leinster Chairperson before reaching the top of the tree!
Everybody in the Village wishes Catherine the very best for her tenure.
