Singing priest returns to Carraroe

Sligo’s singing priest Fr. Kevin Fallon returns to his native Carraroe on Thursday 11th June for a special evening of musical entertainment all in aid of St. John’s Hospital Patient Comfort Fund & Kilglass Parish Churches. Molly Fultons Pub & Restaurent will be the setting for the eclectic musical mix. Special guests for the evening will also include Taby Callaghan of X-Factor fame. Together with Tony Marren, Padraig Fox and a host of other music stars giving their time free for this worthy cause.
Fr. Fallon is the Parish Priest in Kilglass Co. Roscommon since 2011 and serves three churches in the one parish; Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Rooskey, Sacred Heart Church Kilglass and St. Anne’s Church Slatta.

The Carraroe native recorded a CD entitled “Twice the Catch” in the studio of Paul Gurney Longford last January. The album is titled 'Twice the Catch', coming from Fr. Kevin's dual role on the CD. He plays the flute on five tracks, and sings with the guitar on the other seven tracks.
Anyone who listens to the CD gets to hear him twice hence the title of the CD “twice the catch”
There are five sets of traditional songs, while the remainder range from Irish ballads to gospel music and country and western music. 

There is no admission fee and the CD will be on sale at €10 each. All proceeds will go towards the St. John’s Hospital Patient Comfort Fund & Kilglass Parish Churches. The show begins at 9.30 p.m.  A raffle will take place on the evening and light refreshments will be served.

Club’s U-12 stars stay in contention for league honours

St. John’s pass Tourlestrane test

The St. John’s U-12 B team are the clubs success story of their year following their fourth victory in last Tuesday’s defeat of a much touted Tourlestrane side by 0-19 to 0-15.
The game was in doubt with torrential rain over the previous days but the evening itself brightened up and it proved good omens for Joint Managers Gerry Quinn & Michael Hegarty’s charges.
Right from the start St. John’s controlled the game with directattacking play. Sparkling performances from the forwards most notably the scoring prowess of Liam Lee, Aine Gorman & Cormac Roddy kept the scores rising and with a water tight defence of Sean Moore, Emmanuel Nwani giving little away and the assured Marc Lyttle starring in goals the Carraroe starlets ended the second quarter in a commanding 0-12 to 0-4 lead.

With the strength in depth the team has its disposal the management had the luxury of bringing on subs of the calibre of Corey O’Dowd, Ryan McLoughlin,David Elliott, Jade Gray & Tyler Haxell all making telling contributions.

Overall it was another very encouraging & heartening team display by St. John’s who were able to withstand a tenacious late fightback from Tourlestrane in the final quarter. St. John’s dogged determination in defence and greater support up front managed to stem the tide and run out deserving winners in the end by 0-19 0-15.

Best for St John’s on the night were Josh Davey, Emmanuel Nwani, David Elliott and Aine Gorman.
An encouraging statistic the team are averaging 0-15 per game.
