Ballintotis Fit 4 Life

 

This year, we will hold our annual Ballintotis Fit 4 Life Fun Relay Run, on Wednesday December 27th at 10:00am from Ballintotis Community Centre. We have over 22 teams picked which totals over 90 participants. Great morning assured for all. This years raised funds will be for the Bumbleance Children's Ambulance service. https://www.bumbleance.com

 

Lap of the Lake Walk

 

This is also planned for Wednesday December 27th with a kick off time of 2:30pm. A great opportunity to meet your friends and neighbors and enjoy a cup of tea in the Community Centre afterwards.

 

BACC AGM

 

The Annual General Meeting of Ballintotis Area Community Council Ltd will be held on Wednesday 31st January at 8:30pm in the Community Centre. We would encourage every household in our community to have a representative in attendance as this is an important forum for views and opinions to be aired and incorporated into community council plans and activities. 


At the AGM we will have a member of the local Garda Siochana present who will give an update on rural crime. This is a very topical issue in recent times so worth hearing from the people working to reduce it

 

Athletics Success

 

Eoin Quirke from Ballintotis who had a great run in the recent All Ireland Cross Country Championships, to cap off a marvelous year for this highly talented athlete.

 

Ballintotis can also rejoice in the wonderful 22nd place of Fearghal Curtin in the Men's Under 20 Race  at the European Corss Country Championships in Slovakia.  Ferghal from Killeagh is son of Ballintotis native Noel Curtin and grandson of Mrs Kay Curtin Caheraultan.


Reminder - New Walking Club - Takes To The Road


The next walk is planned for early in the New Year, but in the meantime the traditional Ballintotis "Lap of the Lake" will again be held this year as usual on December 27th, beginning at 2.30pm (and not 2pm as in previous years) More information regarding the new Walking Club is available by calling Martin Hackett on 086-0890841

 

Reminder - New Ballintotis "Watch Group" - Have You Joined This Group?

 

Thanks to great the work of Kieran O'Sullivan and Ger Broderick BALLINTOTIS WATCH has been set up. This is basically a "Whats App" group that gives us a bit more security especially during the winter months.  It means that anybody who has a smart phone can access the group by joining up. Thereby instant communication is received by all members regarding security matters in our area. It's up to the members to keep a watchful eye should they notice something or somebody unusual in the area. By means of an instant message everybody is in the know.  To join the group please register locally with Ger Broderick. Contact Ger  on 087-7716888 with your name and number - remember you must have access to  "Whats App" to join the group.
