Killoe Community Games are looking for some missing jerseys that we’d love see again as they are urgently required for upcoming events. They have been missing for a number of years now, so it might require a search of some of the attics in the parish to unearth what we are looking for! Please check for a full set of jerseys sponsored by Mark Leonard and half a set of jerseys sponsored by Rhyne Rock. We would greatly appreciate if these could be accounted for, regardless of the condition they are in. Please phone Mary on 086 1219281 if you know of their whereabouts. A small amount of money was found at Emmett Og grounds at our Annual Sports Day. Please phone Mary on 086 1219281 before Friday 25 May at 6pm to claim it. If unclaimed by then, the money will be given to charity.
