Bring and buy sale

The village renewal committee will hold a bring and buy sale in the community centre on 1st December. This is the first fundraiser that the village renewal committee have held and we would ask that everyone support it. They have been doing great work for the last year with a very limited budget and they would like to do more. As with all things today there is a cost and with this in mind we would love everyone to help out in this cause. Bring and buy of course does exactly what it says on the tin so it does involve both. If you have anything you would like to donate please contact Deirdre Crowley or Pat O Leary or for any further information or indeed you can use the below details.

Dr Croke birthplace house

A great culture night took place at Dr Croke house on Sunday last. A huge crowd turned up and they were treated to song, poetry storytelling and the odd joke. People came from Mallow, Laharn, Dromahane, Ballyclough, Lisgriffin, Liscarroll, Churchtown as well as many locals. We would like to thank everyone that helped with the entertainment, with age groups from 9 to 90 and to all that turned up. Special thanks to Noel Linehan who presented a limestone piece from Lackeel that had been beautifully decorated. Also for the Ewe wood with the various crests from around the world and the back of a seat that Croke sat on at GAA matches. These marvellous pieces will take pride of place. We were also presented with old ledgers and books that are very much appreciated.

IRD Duhallow

IRD Duhallow are celebrating 30 years in existence. Over the past 30 years the Kilbrin Community, as well and many other country areas and local businesses have benefited greatly from this organization and we wish them the very best for the next 30 years and look forward to working with them. In recent times the funding for IRD has been reduced and this makes it more difficult for them and us to continue with our development projects. As a rural community we all need to ensure that we make our representatives aware of the importance of this organization to our community. The representatives will be asking us for our support in the coming months and if you are trying to think of something to ask in return it might be good to ask them to ensure that this vital rural funding is restored.


The Nolan family will be making a presentation to the Irish Motor Neuron Association in on Thursday 12th December in the Community Centre. We will give more details when they are finalised.
