Another Ceolta Sí Season Ends

The conclusion of another successful Ceolta Sí Seisiún season


marks the end of another Comhaltas year. During September there
is scarcely time to reflect on the uniqueness of this enormously
successfully community driven cultural project. Not willing to rest
on its laurels, the Branch organisers have now moved on to prepar-
ing the Annual Report and organising its core activities of classes
in music and dance.
Ceolta Sí which is the performing arm of Comhaltas has now com-
pleted 20 years of entertaining
both locals and tourists to this
region. Despite the predicted
decline in tourist numbers, this
locally produced show featuring
the best of local talent, has once
again maintained its audience
numbers throughout the season.
Local tourist product providers
have been magnanimous in
expressing their gratitude and
delighted that their guests could
experience such a high standard
and authentic evenings of Irish
music and entertainment.
So many of you have also told
us, that your visitors loved the
warm welcome they received at Brú na Sí.
Many people really don't realise the value of the Traditional Arts
and how far reaching they can go into the Community to make a
difference. These arts are often the first introduction and Irish
flavour that people in any part of the world experience. Our econ-
omy may be bloodied but we are culturally unbowed. It is a pity
that the work of Youghal Comhaltas and the difference that it
makes often goes unnoticed locally, perhaps it is because of our
location or perhaps people aren't informed.
To this end we now call on Youghal Town Council to ensure that

Eoin Whyte, Youghal’s only competitor, who was one of the best
Juniors in the country a few years ago made his move 5 miles from
the finish of the 100k race. He quickly opened a gap of 18 seconds
which grew to 22 seconds with 5km to go. The finish line was
three quarters of the way up Dalys hill where David O’Loughlin
took the 2007 National Champs from an overconfident Nicholas

Eoin was most unfortunate to face a strong headwind for the final

it everything in the final few kilometers only to be caught by the

YOUGHAL TRIATHLON IN ITS 10TH YEAR GETS
BETTER AND BETTER.
By Derek Kiely
THE Tenth Youghal Triathlon was a tremendous success last
weekend at the East Cork seaside town, with 248 competitors tak-
ing to the Atlantic Ocean, then on to the bicycles then finishing
with a run.
There was over €3,000 in prizes, split amongst the field, with over-
all prizes as well as category
awards too. The course was a
massive 750m swim, 19k cycle
and a 6.5k run and conditions
were tough early Saturday morn-
ing with a rising tide and a sharp
swell in the Atlantic Ocean for
the 750m swim, but as the day
drew on weather conditions

local Cork athletes competing well at the top end of Triathlon
competitions and I want to thank everyone who helped in making
this Triathlon a success, the eleventh Youghal Triathlon can't come
quick enough".
As the competition reached fever pitch it was Trevor Woods, a
physical exercise teacher at UCC who emerged as the first man
home and overall winner in a time of 1.05.15. Trevor originally
from Belfast was thrilled with the victory and praised the organis-
ers for putting together such a well designed course.
The first Lady home was Cork's Elizabeth Lee who won the
Youghal Triathlon in 2008. Elizabeth crossed the finish line in
1.10.21 which was a very impressive time indeed.
Other competitors of note were Cork's Chris Mintern who at just
16 years of age has already competed at International level.
Mintern was first out of the water, first home in the cycle, but was
caught in the run by the experiences Trevor Woods, also Donal

Late of Knocknacally, Youghal. Lower Cork Hill, Youghal.
Who died on the 14th September, 2009

The day I lost you Dad is the day I can’t forget,


Although time goes on my heart is breaking yet.
The pain I try to live with, the tears I seldom show,
The emptiness without you Dad, no one will ever know.
I can’t get over losing you, I don’t ever want to try,
I will always keep you in my heart, until the day I die.
Dearest memories from all your
friends and relations.
Loved and missed always by her son Tom, Pauline,

Who died on the 14th September, 2009 Who died on the 21st of September 2009
God looked around his garden and saw an empty space,
Beautiful memories dearer than gold He looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face,
Of a father whose worth can never be told. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest,
Many things have happened Dad, God’s garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
I wanted you to share, God knew you were in pain and a cure was not to be,
You gave me years of happiness, So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered come to me.
With loving heart and willing hands for me you did it all. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you slip away,
Although we loved you dearly we knew you could not stay.
I will never forget the memories of a Dad I loved so dear. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
Sadly missed by his daughter Kitty, & son-in-law Tony
Grandad the happy times we spent together will linger in our hearts forever. Sadly missed by his loving daughter Michelle
