Tír na Nóg Active Retirement group.

The Tir na Nog group have returned from their first excursion to east Cork. When it comes to details of what went on they are using the 'what happens in east cork stays in east cork' story but by all known accounts a great time was had by all and plans are already being made for trip number two. What we do know is that the Titanic is still under water. Anyone interested in joining the Tir na Nog group please contact a committee member or give your name in the Social Club.

Our sympathies go to the Riordan family from Knockscovane, Meelin on the death of their mother and to the Sullivan family from Greenfield Kanturk on the death of their mother. May they rest in peace.

Kilbrin History

Did you know that 100 years ago there were two schools in Kilbrin. Ballygraddy School had 7 girl and 18 boy students and they were looked after by 5 teacher's and 2 monitors. Curraghs school had 12 girl and 5 boy students and they were looked after by 5 teacher's also. Of course there were no school busses so students got to school by foot.
