Watch out for the statue of the famous Fr Casey in the town square. (Fr Casey was parish priest of Abbeyfeale from the founding of the GAA till 1907. He helped the poor tenant farmers fight against their mean landlords. He also became a good friend of the founder of the Land League, Michael Davitt of Mayo, and he formed the first Land League group outside of Mayo. The ‘fight’ was about the ‘Three Fs’ for the poor struggling tenants – fair rent, fixity of tenure and freedom of the tenant to sell his interest in his holding).
CAID FAOI 16: (i) U16 club training will continue on Fridays at 5pm in Connolly Park. Good work is being done at these sessions. Keep it up, boys! (ii) Our lads had a good win v Ballymac last Sunday morning in the Bordcheantar Thrá Lí Football League (Goup 1). It was great to see Armin Heinrich and Dean Rusk back in action after layoffs. Go n-éirí libh, a leaideanna. Upcoming fixtures: ag 12.00 ar 30/9…AdeS (ag baile) v Mistéalaigh; ag 12.00 ar 7/10…AdeS (ag baile) v Cnoc na hEaglaise. The two top teams will play in the Division 1 final. (iii) Bord Thrá Lí has decided to introduce a new ‘zero tolerance’ policy regarding abuse and the use of foul and abusive language towards match officials. This is being done (a) because good behaviour, respect for others and the use of respectful language is the hallmark of a well-reared, mannerly and truly sporting person and (b) so that young people might be encouraged to take up refereeing. Referees are being instructed by the Board to report any form of abuse that they receive or any foul language that is directed towards them during or after a game. Any reports of such shameful acts will be dealt with by the CCCC.
