What is always a wonderful day for youngsters and creates an absolutely tremendous comradery is the Schools Cross Country.

There will also be a Secondary Schools competition for Junior boys and Junior girls over 2km and a 3km race for Senior girls and Senior boys.

The entire event is due to be over to allow time for buses to return to schools. 

Uncertainty in the Future

The past 3 years since the closure of the power station and consequently the downsizing of Bord na Mona to a negligible number of workers has created a massive change in our community and the wider area. Despite great positivity from within the community there has been no, absolutely no political response to the plight of the entire area that gave great support to both ESB and Bord na Mona. Things continue to get harder and the brain drain of our youth has commenced with nothing being created to offer them the option of working in the community.

From a local business perspective there was always great support from the farming community to their own communities and it was something never underestimated  by the local businesses.

Now, another strand of our community is coming under severe pressure and this time it is the farming community who are facing an uncertain future following the decision to cut Ireland’s nitrate derogation. Recent decisions means that there will be cuts in the nitrate levels from 1st January.

It is said by experts that these changes will have massive effects on faming and farmers will be forced to find extra land and that is something that is of a very scarce commodity or else they will have to reduce their herd numbers that will greatly affect farm incomes and consequently their spending powers. This decision creates an uncertain future for farmers and their families.

At a time when communities such as ours require support it is really beyond belief that the current Government parties would allow the closure of the Power Station, the disintegration of Bord na Mona as we know it and now farming. All this, is and has been done without preparing communities with a forward plan. What we have got is the rug pulled out from out of our existence by a Government that seems to have little care or concern for communities and especially rural communities such as ours. The only time we become an interest is when they want to get someone elected to the council, Europe or the Dáil. Our votes count then but our voices are never listened to or heeded until the next election comes along.

Championship Quarter Final

Sunday last Rathcline travelled to Parse Park to take on Dromard for a place in the Longford senior championship semi-final. Dromard was the huge obstacle that faced them. Unfortunately, the obstacle was too great to surmount and Rathcline went out at this stage. We must compliment the team and management for the development and excitement they brought to the parish. As this was the last game of the season that they winter well and come back chomping at the bit for greater success next year.

Mid-Roscommon’s Vintage display attracts a lot of interest

At Strokestown Agricultural and Industrial show last Sunday there was huge interest in the Mid-Roscommon Vintage spectacle. Shortly before mid-day the demonstration got underway, when Billy Stewart from Killashee, began crushing stone with his one hundred year-old crusher. The crusher was belt-driven from a 1945 model Fordson tractor. The noise of the machine soon had crowds converging at the scene to witness how crushed stone was manufactured in the early days. The exhibition continued intermittently through the day until a full load of stone was reduced to rubble.

Kevin Foley, Newtownforbes and Robert Kenny, Ballinlough had three stationary engines present at the display; one of the engines, a huge machine run on paraffin, was manufactured in 1904. Another of the engines had a historical link it being the power source that supplied electricity to the town of Dungarvan Co Tipperary in the 1930s and powered the cinema there that showed the first talkie film in Ireland. All engines were running through the day. The vintage display included an array of tractors implements and cars from a bygone era, each looking resplendent on the day. The stone-crushing and engine display was a treat to watch and attracted the interest of young and old at the show.

Ballyboro FC

The Ballyboro u16 girls were in fine fettle as they took on Kenagh in their first game of the season in the Connaught Cup on Sunday. The home team got off to a great start with a fantastic opening goal from Sarah Healy. Kenagh kept the Ballyboro girls on their toes but excellent defence in the first half prevented the Kenagh girls from scoring. In the closing minute of the first half, Sarah Healy secured another fantastic goal. Kenagh made several attempts to score in the 2nd half but Mariana Donlon Goncalves drove another ball into the net early on. Kenagh did not give up and managed to secure two goals in the closing stages of the game. Final Score 3-2 to Ballyboro. A special mention to the four new team members for Ballyboro, Keira Hopkins, Sarah Skelly, Mattea Cox and Maria Forde, all who contributed positively in their match debut. Ballyboro: Mattea Cox, Leah Kenny, Anna Cox, Emma Dowd,  Mariana Donlon Goncalves, Emma Feeney, Kate Malone, Sarah Skelly, Sophie Byrne, Maria Forde & Sarah Healy. Subs: Clodagh Martin, Kiera Hopkins, Sophie Cox, Kate Ferguson, Amy Burke, Evie Malone

The Ballyboro u12 boys were extremely unlucky on Friday evening in the Connacht Cup away to Swinford. A cagey first half saw the teams go in scoreless at half time. Swinford got the game’s first goal early in the 2nd half and then piled on the pressure with Matthew Murphy making some fantastic saves. Finn Fallon on his under 12 debut scored a fantastic glancing header to even the score 5mins before full time. Unfortunately Swinford broke on the counter attack and scored immediately after the restart to make it 2-1 and saw out the game from there. This was a battling performance from our boys with Finn Fallon, David Kenny and Matthew Murphy outstanding on the day. 

The Ballyboro under 16s Boys we’re defeated by Coolaney FC in a first round Connacht Cup encounter. The Ballyboro lads had much the better of the first half exchanged and led 3-2 at the interval courtesy of goals from Rian Hogan, Nicolas Haluska, and Billy Murray (penalty) Ballyboro should have been further in front as a number of gilt edged scoring opportunities were missed and two efforts hit the post. Coolaney edged the second half and 3 more goals secured a win for the Sligo boys though the winning margin certainly flattered them. Ballyboro will now contest the Connacht Shield where they should acquit themselves very well. Ballyboro: Eoin Beattie, Taras Kostur. Leon Malkowski, Mikie Sorohan, Harry Brogan, Cody Phelan, Billy Murray, Jared Mulvey, Nicolas Haluska, Dan Casey, Rian Hogan. Subs: Sean Collins, Ciaran McGloin, Eoin Connell, Eoghan Mullooly, Jake Rice, Sean O’Dowd.
