Badminton Open Night

All are welcome to our OPEN BADMINTONNIGHT in Our Lady’s Secondary school on Thursday Oct 6th from 8 p.m.. Present members will be on hand to demonstrate badminton skills and encourage potential members to join up and enjoy a sociable and lively sport which is not difficult to master. Some of its benefits are improved fitness and flexibility, not to mention maintenance of bone density for the more mature among us, without the tedium of a regimented  keep fit class. So whether or not you have previously owned and enjoyed a badminton racket as far back as secondary school, or even if badminton is a complete mystery, come along and try out the sport. The decision to commit will be entirely yours! No charge will be applied on the night.

Late Sr Eucharia R.I.P

On Sunday Sept 18th, Sr Eucharia Duggan died peacefully in Aut Even Hospital, Kilkenny following a short illness, surrounded by her family and community.

Sr Eucharia entered the Convent of Mercy Templemore in September 1947, and was finally professed in August 1953. She trained as a Primary teacher in Carysfort College Dublin. She then spent some years teaching in Borrisoleigh Primary School. The remainder of her teaching career was spent in St Joseph’s Primary School Templemore, during which time she served as Principal from 1974 to 1980.

On her retirement in 1994 she continued to teach the Recorder to the senior Primary School classes.

Sr Eucharia was loved and highly respected by her community, her family and by the people of Templemore. She will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
