Fat stock achievements.

Kilbrin community are very proud of our local farmers on the great achievements in the fat stocks sales last week. Joe Breen won the best pen of cattle. Ned O' Connor also won on the day. In particular we would like to congratulate Frank Hayes on winning the Duhallow cup in his first time entering the event, with his home bred Charlaois.


Kilbrin community had the pleasure of marking a presentation on your behalf last week to Mrs Esther Hayes for her contribution to Kilbrin an surrounding area over many years. She held many positions in the community council from the early 70s to the present day. Her input has been invaluable to the Kilbrin community. We, the community, wish her the very best of luck in her little break from the council and look forward to her imminent return to active duty.


The Kilbrin community council would like to offer our deepest sympathies to Eileen Heffernan & family on the recent death of her husband Jer. A great family man and indeed a great neighbour. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam
