Cappoquin Civic Link Notes

Carnival Round Up
The 2017 Carnival committee will have its round up meeting next Tuesday, June 11th. In the meantime, a sincere 'Thanks' to our main sponsors the Credit Union, and to Lismore Vets, Kelleher's and John Murphy of Titelines for funding prizes for various competitions.
Our thanks also to the GAA club for use of the field for the fun day, to Bunscoil Gleann Sídheáin for its wonderful participation in the art competition, judged by Arthur Maderson. Arthur and Verlane Maderson deserve huge for hosting the 'Open House' and so much more, while the Community Centre was a wonderful host for the art competition along with several staff members 'minding' the car park for the Friday night events. 
A big 'Thanks' also to Helen McGrath for providing the medals for the family fun day, and best wishes for a speedy recovery from injury. Thanks also to all involved in the Dromana Five for promoting the Carnival's weekend events, to Lady Waterford and Hanika Simmons for judging the dog show, Andrea Jameson for hosting the art class, Cappoquin Rowing Club for hosting the Scratch Races and Brendan Kiely for his always-fascinating heritage walk. The list could go on, and on - John Cahill for his help with the Castle Street Cascade, Tony Hickey's tug-o-war expertise, Fintan and the Fire Service for the exciting demo, Keith Dransfield's web work, Macra na Feirme and more.
Hoping that we have left no one out, we would also like to say a big thanks to everyone who bought bouncy balls, or just came along to enjoy a lovely weekend and meet up with a few friends.
Best Wishes to Waterford Hurlers
Given the draw for next weekend's hurling championship qualifiers, no douby hundreds of local people will be heading for Thurles next Saturday. It's great to see the two local Tourin players, Darragh and Shane, in full flight against their mother's native county last weekend, and here's to success against Kilkenny too. A lovely aspect of the GAA is still the fact that no matter how much TV coverage or fame comes players' way, they are still very much 'from' your place. Best wishes to all the west Waterford contingent next weekend, and a special word for Michael Walsh, now the 'most-capped' Waterford hurler of all time, and brother of Breda Kenny at the Credit Union. Michael was a huge help to us in getting the sliotars signed by lots of county hurlers, as prizes for the Carnival fun day, and next weekend he and the Fives brothers have other important duties on hand.
New Heritage Trail Noticeboard
Sharp eyed local residents will have noticed that our heritage trail noticeboard at the Square has been replaced with a brand new board and header, thanks to the generosity of Jacinta Uniacke and Munster Sign and Print. The old board had given a decade's service to the area, and particularly to visitors interested in finding out a little more about our history, and we hope the new one will see a similar period of service. The colour scheme is brighter, and there are some new design features, but in essence it is the same information as before. Our sincere thanks to Jacinta, who has insisted on donating the new board to Cappoquin free of charge. The new board is pictured here.
