Weekly News Roundup - Wednesday 5 Nov 2003


Pedestrian Crossing

Cllr. Jim Townsend, Ballybar Upper, has made representations to Carlow County Council regarding the provision of a pedestrian crossing/ramp with flashing amber lights in front of the entrance to the local school.
There have been several complaints recently about cars speeding through the village at this location and such a crossing would be in the interests of the safety of the schoolchildren and the general public in the area.
The two green and white reflectorised poles, which marked the road leading to Tinryland at the N 80 Junction at Ballinacarrig, have recently gone missing and it is hoped that these will be replaced as soon as possible.

Under 13
St Josephs 7- Burrin Celtic 0

Ryan Curran stole the show scoring five goals in the first 27 minutes to give Joey's a comfortable win against a very game but young Burrin side. All of Ryan's goals were of such a high quality the away keeper despite having a brilliant game could do nothing about any of them. HT5-0
The second half saw the home side continue to dominate the game and Brian Farrell scored the sixth with an unlucky own goal giving Josephs their seventh. Best for St Josephs were Ryan Curran, Jeff Sutton and Ciaran Williamson

Under 15
New Oak Boys 3- St Josephs 0

St Josephs are gradually finding their feet at this level and put up a very good display against a strong New Oak team. It was 1-0 to the home side at half time and it was only in the last few minutes that Joey's conceded the second and third. Best for St Josephs were Michael Hennessy in goal, Ambrose Doran and Darren Fingleton.

Under 9
St Josephs 5-Burrin Celtic 2

A good crowd from both clubs turned up to see what turned out to be one of the best games of the season. Both teams were evenly matched and Joey's were just in front 1-0 at half time after end to end football provided great entertainment. The second half saw the away side level after about five minutes and then it was a case of who could keep going the better and this young Joey's team showed that they have loads of courage as well as skill. With every member of the squad playing well Joey's scored three quick goals to collect the points. With minutes to go Joey's got their fifth and Burrin got their second in the last minute. The prolific Martin Mullins scored 4 goals with Finn Lynch getting the fifth. In a game where everyone played well Clodagh McGrath, Sean Kirwan and Eoin Field were outstanding.


On Saturday 8th Nov Joey's under 13s take on Stretford United in the third round of the SFAI Cup at home with the kick off at 10:30. This should be a thrilling match and your support would be really appreciated. Following this match both St Josephs under 10 teams will be at home.
