“A visit is a must”
Stay Safe in the
Kitchen this Christmas
ARE you sure you know how to prepare your turkey this
Christmas? The Food Standards Agency says many of us
don't and poor preparation and cooking can lead to food poi-
December is the worst month of the year for food poison-
ing. One in five of all cases can be traced back to under-
cooked poultry such as chicken or turkey. So here are some
of the things the FSA wants to warn against:
- Don't cook the stuffing inside the turkey. This can prevent
either from cooking through properly, so they should be
cooked separately instead.
- Do not wash the turkey before cooking: this can spread
bacteria around the kitchen and lead to cross-contamination.
Correct cooking will kill all bacteria.
- Ideally a frozen turkey should be defrosted in the fridge.
Two thirds of people defrost at room temperature but again
this can cause problems.
- Cook your turkey for 18 to 20 minutes per pound in
weight. An undercooked turkey can result in food poisining.

Christmas dinner is the biggest meal many of us will cook.

We're often preparing meals that we wouldn't normally
make - and we frequently buy more food than we can store
in the fridge.
The FSA’s head of microbiology says, "The ad campaign
encourages people to think about how to prepare, cook and
eat safely, most food poisoning incidents are easily avoided
and with a little bit of extra thought everybody can enjoy the
festive season."
One of the problems is catering for higher numbers, the
average Christmas cook will be serving dinner for at least
seven people. And we all seem to be guilty of buying a big-
ger turkey than necessary, the average weight of the
Christmas bird is 12 pounds and that's enough to feed up to
18 people, but however big it is, you should use up all left-
overs within 48 hours.
But the agency's advice is simple: plan a realistic amount
of food, store raw meat in the bottom of your fridge, wash
utensils used on raw meat and make sure the bird is fully
thawed and cooked thoroughly to ensure you stay healthy
this Christmas.
The sounds, sights and smells of Christmas will be in

Inch Rovers Contest All Ireland Final
"We have a bunch of young players coming through now who are
very determined to work really hard for one another. We had
another another hard match against Liscarroll but came out at the
right end. The hunger and the hurt from the year was a big factor
in our eventual final win against Donoughmore".
The Munster championship which followed was to produce two
very different performances. In the drawn match against
Ballymacarbery it was a strangely subdued Inch performance as
many of the side looked a bit leaden footed. However, the replay
was to provide a huge contrast.
"There was a sombre feeling after the drawn match", admits Noel.
"We asked ourselves was this it, were we coming to the end of the
road? It was difficult for many of the girls who played with
Killeagh just the week before in the camogie final to readjust
quickly. We opted for an easy week before the rematch with
Ballymacarbery and tried to factor in as much rest as possible. We
battled on and then went on to win the replay in Dungarvan".
As winter approached an away game at the other end of the coun-
try would hardly be classed as a prize gig for the Munster winners.
An away match in Donegal is about as difficult as it comes at this
time of year for a team from the south.
"Our luck with home matches on the previous years and home
draws had run out. It took a massive effort form everybody with
Tom Goggin and Agnes Fitzgerald doing wonderful work in
organising the trip. We travelled up the day before and prepared
properly. As expected it was a huge battle and a demanding match
physically, but luckily we came out on the right side and Carnacon

Sunday's final venue - Bannagher county Offaly is hardly a mar-
quee sporting stop, but it has developed into a big favourite with
the fixtures secretary. Noel O'Connor has major reservations
about it.
"We went there before and obviously and lost, but that's not the
major point. It's off the beaten track in terms of a location, but
crucially there is a distinct slope on the pitch. I've been there with Killeagh

Youghal man Jim Daly’s commitment to maintaining a healthy
lifestyle has been commended by Aura Youghal Leisure Centre
who have chosen him as their Member of the Month.
The awards recognise Aura members for their dedication to their
personal fitness goals. Jim’s great achievements over the last few
months made him the obvious choice for this month’s award.
Jim, who lives locally in Youghal has been a member of Aura since
2007 and attributes his
impressive five and a half
stone weight loss and
improved fitness levels to his
healthier lifestyle and regular
workouts at Aura.
“I started exercising in Aura
over three years ago, because
I needed to do something
about my weight and fitness
levels,” explained Jim.
“I also wanted to learn how to
swim, which was something that I had been quite nervous about
and put off for years. Since enrolling in the adult swimming class-
es I have made great progress. I am now a regular in the pool and
go for a swim three days a week,” he added.

friends. “I would recommend Aura to anyone. The staff are brilliant. They
are always there to provide encouragement and support and give
you that extra boost when you need it,” Jim added.
“Jim’s impressive weight loss and healthier lifestyle make him the
perfect candidate for this award. He took the first step in address-
ing his own health and fitness needs and the results speak for
themselves,” explained Tracy Kenneally, Operations Manager at
Aura Youghal Leisure Centre.
“Our Member of the Month awards are the ideal way to celebrate
and reward those members who impress us with their attitude and
initiative,” she added.
“We are here to help people achieve their goals, whatever they are.

Yet, we can easily trace the same issues back to a time when * - 'By the Drum' - essentially a person beating a drum to garner

or Cromwell's cavalry were quartered here on his bloody cam-
paign. For instance, if people are exasperated at the problem of
dogs fouling the town, they should spare a thought for their
medieval ancestors. In July 1627, complaints were made about the
number of hogs and pigs which were roaming free along the
medieval streets, even finding their way into the sacrosanct
Churchyard (St. Mary's Collegiate Church). As a solution, six days
warning was to be given 'by the drum'* warning people that the
warden could kill or destroy the animals in question if found there.
Yet this wasn't the end of the matter. A whole fifteen years later,
the issue of swine within the town was still causing complaints. In
a more extreme move, in 1642 (in the midst of the 1641 Irish
rebellion), it was decided that 'the great number of hogs, pigs and
swine is so noisome (annoying) to all the town by the filth and dirt'
that it was allowable to either kill or seize the animal on the spot
if it was found roaming loose about the town. Whether the present
town council will eventually be proclaiming such measures for
loose or fouling dogs remains unknown!
But concern was also shown in the medieval town over littering
and illegal dumping. Named and shamed in the corporation min- Aisling Browne, Shauna Doyle, Kate and Sarah Harrington and Shauna

Philip Massey for 'laying dirt in the street' whilst the Widow
Sheffield was blamed for blocking the gutter under Mrs. Tynt's
Castle, causing the street to flood.
Public order concerns can also be traced back to these medieval
minutes. In 1617, the corporation was demanding that alehouses
enter into recognizances for the keeping of good order whilst once
a fortnight, 'the Bailiffs for the better restraining of disorder'
would inspect taverns and alehouses and fine any they found there
on Sundays during 'divine service.'
In 1646 however, the corporation was seeking to protect the town's
imbibers, accusing innkeepers of selling unregulated measures of
beer and requiring that they henceforth be sold by the 'pottle, quart
and pint,' a pottle containing four full pints for those who think a
Germanbeer stein (two pint beer mug) is a handful.
The number of alehouses was also regulated. In 1616, it was pro-
posed to limit the number of alehouses to 20 but by 1656, the num-
ber proposed was increased to 30 who were to 'give security to
keep good order.' In comparison, the modern town of Youghal
with its expanded area and larger population has less than twenty
licensed premises to its name.
Concerns raised by Councillors recently over the state of roads
and pavements are also a repetition of times past. In June 1616, a
survey of paving was undertaken in 'Broad Street' and the town at
large with repairs to be conveniently carried out by the inhabitants
rather than the corporation. This problem is to be constantly found
throughout the records, in May 1729 for example, 'the streets
being very much out of repair' that 'every person be obliged to
pave before their holdings to the gutter.'
The state of the roads were also a concern. Again it was on the

The coal fires are burning, there is a nip in the air, the winter is fast
approaching. Our thoughts are on the season in hand but before we
get cosy by the fire our chairman John Geaney and the Inch
Committee would like to thank you all for supporting them in our
recent Festival. We kicked off with the Inch Queens in the hall, it
was a great night with great talent and a lovely bunch of girls. We
thank our sponsors for putting them forward to represent their
businesses or clubs. Congratulations to our winner Trisha Arnold
who represented Leahys Open Farm.
Our Table Quiz in Powers Bar had a great selection of questions
to get our memories stirring. Thanks to all who took part. Our
Bingo went well and our schools Table Quiz had a great turn out
and thanks to all who took part. Then it was onto our Fashion
Show, a first in many years to be held in the hall. The place was a
hive of activity the night before with ramps, carpets, lights, flow-
ers etc. on the ready. We had a great turn out and a great selection
of clothes and sizes to suit all. A big thanks to the shops and their
staff for putting a fantastic display together to wow us so please
support local this year - we have a great selection on our
doorsteps. And then it was down to the final day, our bazaar. We
were blessed with a dry day, the spinner was in full swing with
great prizes to give away, Our brick-a-brack was awash with bar-
gains, cakes flew out the door, plant sales tables were full of
colour, our outdoor side shows went down a treat with kids and
adults having a go at the wet sponge as well as our treasure hunt
and soccer and other side shows. Our visit from the animal road
show went down a treat with a range of reptiles and mammals on
display and a chance to hold them.
Then it was our finale the Duck Race, what excitement as they
bobbed down the river fighting for a place. We had a great crowd,
a lovely family day with quite a lot of new faces in the area, so
welcome to you all. Then it was time to tidy up, have a cuppa and
head home to shower and get all dressed up for our get together in
Powers Bar. It was a fun packed week but would not have hap-

so much time to organise this event. Your support is very much

night and gave a fantastic speech on what Camogie means to the

whose anniversary occurs at this time

This day I will always remember, with heartache and regret,

It's the day you were taken from us, how could I ever forget.
The winds of love blow softly, just enough for you to hear,
But I still love and miss you, and wish that you were here.
You made the world a better place, in your own special way,
And you're still loved so very much, and missed more everyday.
Your leaving caused a lot of tears, and so much grieving too,
It was the hardest thing of all to say goodbye to you. Deep in our hearts you will always stay,
You gave your love until one day, you heard the angels call,
And above us now in heaven lives the best Dad of them all. Loved and remembered everyday.

Sadly missed by your daughter Pearl, son in law Mike, grand- Sadly missed by your brother
children Pearl, Michael, Emma, Adam, Ann and Family. Billy, Esther & Family.

Treasured Memories of my wonderful father David In loving memory of

Dad you meant so much to us

There is nothing we can say Davie O' Brien.
The pain is still within our hearts
As we think of you today
The precious years won't come again
When we are all altogether
But the love and joy you gave us
Will stay with us forever
Everyone whispered softly
Time will heal the pain
But life here without you Dad
Has never been the same.
Always remembered by the Shiels Family
Always missed and loved by his daughter Aideen and Mike.

Your star will shine now in the sky But memories of you will never die.

We miss you from your fireside chair Your smile was made of sunshine

Precious memories of my father David whose anniversary occurs at Treasured Memories of my father David
this time. Late of O'Reilly Tce,

A light went out the morning you died

If roses grow in heaven pick a bunch for me. Tears of grief I cried
Place them in Dads arm and tell him they’re from me. Tears still fall as time goes by
Tell him I love and miss him, My love for you will never die
And when he turns to smile place a kiss upon his check So stay beside me always
And hold him for awhile. Your love will keep me strong
Remembering him is easy, I do it everyday, Because life can be tough sometimes
But there is an ache within my heart that will never go away. Now that you are gone.

Sadly missed always by his daughter Ann, Anthony, Anthony, Sadly missed by your daughter Catherine, Ger, Jessica,
Laura, Karin, Jason and great granddaughter Haley. Jennifer, Aisling, Ali and great granddaughter Lucy.

Loving memories of a dear father David Murphy.

Dad is gone but not forgotten and

As it dawns another year
You always had a smile to share, In our lonely hours of thinking,
A laugh, a joke, a time to care. Thoughts of him are always near.
Days of sadness will come over us
A wonderful nature warm and true, Friends may think the wound is healed
These are the memories I have of you. But they little know the sorrow
That lies within the heart concealed
Loved and missed everyday by Sharon, Michael,
Sadly missed always by his daughter Bridie, son in law John,
Chloe & Amy
grandchildren David, John, Paul, Michelle and Family.

In Loving Memory Of
Late of Dermot Hurley Est., Youghal

Should you go first and I remain, to walk the road alone, May you always walk in sunshine,
I'll live in memories garden, dear, with happy days we've known.
And God’s love around you flow,
In spring I'll wait for roses red, when faded, the lilacs blue.
In early fall when brown leaves fall, I'll catch a glimpse of you. For the happiness you gave us,
I'll hear your voice, I'll see your smile, though blindly I may grope, No-one will ever know.
the memory of your helping hand will buoy me on with hope. It broke our hearts to lose you,
Should you go first and I remain, one thing I'll have you do:
But you did not go alone,
walk slowly down that long long path, for soon I'll follow you.
I want to know each step you take, so I may take the same. For a part of us went with you,
For someday down that lonely road, you'll hear me call your name. The day God called you home.

Sadly missed by your loving wife, Ena Your sister Biddy and Michael

Cherished Memories of a Loving Father
John Joseph (Séan) White
Who died on 11th November 2009

You toiled so hard for those you loved. You said goodbye to none, God looked around his garden and saw an empty space,
Your spirit flew before we knew, your work on earth was done. He then looked down on earth and saw your tired face.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore, as time goes by we miss you more. He put his arms aound you, and lifted you to rest,
Your loving smile, your gentle face: no one can fill your vacant place. Gods garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best.
Your life was love and labor. Your love for your family true.
A special place within our hearts
You did the best for all of us. We will always remember you.

Who died on 6th December 2009
You never said I’m leaving, you never said goodbye,
We never knew that morning,
You were gone before I knew it, and only God knew why.
What sorrow the day would bring.
A million times I needed you, a million times I cried.
When your loving heart stopped beating,
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
And we could not do a thing.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still,
Your parting was so sudden, we often wondered why,
In my heart you hold a place, that no one can ever fill.
The saddest part of all, is we never said goodbye.
It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone,
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.

Resting at God’s feet, And loved them very much and miss them like we do.
And although our hearts are heavy, If you never had that feeling, pray you never do.
We know some day we’ll meet. Because when we lost our sons and brothers, part of us went too.

Who died on the 30th November 2005
When God calls little children to dwell with him above,
We mortals sometime question the wisdom of his love,
Silent memories keep you near,
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child,
As time unfolds another year,
Who does so much to make our world, seem wonderful and mild,
Out of our lives you may be gone
But in our hearts you still live on.
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold,
Your smile was made of sunshine,
So He picks a rosebud, before they can grow old.
Your heart was made of gold,
God knows how much we need them, and so he takes but a few,
To us you were the greatest,
This world could ever hold. To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
So stay beside us always,
It helps to know you’re there, Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,
We thank you for the memories, But the saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye."
And for all your love and care. So when a little child departs we who are left behind must realize
God loves children as Angels are hard to find

It has been a week of highs and lows for the club. Highs were
reached when our Senior girls were crowned County Senior
League Champions and a particularly low ebb when with the blow

denied the County Senior A Championship title for 2010. Despite
playing to the best of their abilities it was not to be, well done and
hard luck.
Senior League Final: Wednesday 10th saw our Senior girls trav-

Clonakilty. Clonakilty opened the scoring and worked very hard

at half time. Conscious of the time slipping away our girls
increased the pressure, and goals from Kate and Angela followed
by points from Annie and Mary secured our position. Clonakilty
didn’t score in the second half and the result was truly in our
favour. We were crowned County League Champions 2010 to add
to our Championship title for the year. Many thanks to all the girls
for being present on the night, particularly those who had to trav-
el long distances mid-week to play. Thanks indeed to Kevin, J.P.
and Tadgh who have been involved in training the girls during the
season. We look forward to the slide show of all the photos taken
by Martin to be presented at our Annual Dinner Dance (more

County B Championships
Youghal AC had twelve juvenile athletes in action at the
County B Championships in Carrignavar on Sunday 14th
November. The event was hosted by Carrignavar who laid out
an excellent course as usual. The weather was again kind to us;
there was ample sunshine despite freeezing conditions during
Saturday night. Picnics were provided by the O' Regan and
Cahill families; it is indeed unusual to be able to sit out with the
flasks at this time of the year. All of our athletes gave outstand-
ing individual performances. Well done girls!
GIRLS U/10 Caoimhe Barry was our first athlete to finish in a
very good 16th place in a very big field. Next in was Tirna
Cahill who ran very well in 24th place. Ciara Cantillon who
was running in her very first race did very well and finished in
Group of Youghal AC athletes warming up with Celia O' Regan

whom are only under 9. Evan Villis had a great race to finish
in 24th and Cian Nicholson also did well coming in 32nd. Well
done lads!
GIRLS U/12 The club had three girls competing all of whom
gave thrilling performances with all three girls featuring with
the leading group throughout in a large field. Latisha was in
2nd position for half of the tace with Aine O' Regan and Karynn
Collins in close pursuit. Positions altered with very little
between the girls. Aine finished in 4th , Latisha in 5th and Jessica Carroll, Lauren Murphy and Sarah
Rachel Carey coming in to fin-

BOYS U/12 Newcomer Eoin O' Brien had an outstanding per-
formance. This was only his third race but he is showing great
potential. He was running up an age also. He went out with the
leading group in 6th position from the start. Big gaps started to
open up in this 2000m race. Eoin moved to 4th position ib the
early stages; his position was challenged twice but he main-
taned his placing and he also win an individual bronze medal.
Well done Eoin! Eoin O' Brien after winning

long race of 3,500m. Lauren was 11th and Jessica in 13th.
Well done girls!
GIRLS U/16 Rachel Carey who was only running in her sec-
ond cross-country race also running up an age did extremely
well in this race of 4,500m. Rachel went out hard with the
leaders. She moved up positions after 1000m from 4th to 3rd Latisha Moriarty, Aine O' Regan and Karynn

were running closely during most of the race thereafter. Rachel
upped the gears with 800m to go opening upp a gap to finish in
a very strong 2nd position behind the Skibbereen winner.
Rachel won an individual silver county medal. It was a very
good perforamce for this newcomer!
A huge cogratulations from the Juvenile section to Niamh
Walshe who ran an outstanding race also on Sunnday to win the
County Intermediate title. She has already won the County
Novice title and two Munster medals in the Munster
Intermediate race both individual and an inter-county Gold
medal. Best of luck to Niamh who will now run on the Cork
Senior team in the All Irelands in Derry on 28th November.
Well done also to Mossie Cahill who ran in the Intermediate
race and got huge support from his daughter Tirna on the field.

Residents Parking Permits:
Residents Parking Permits can be obtained for €40 per annum,
subject to the usual conditions of being resident in a disc parking
area, and either being on the Register of Electors or hold proof oth-
erwise of being legitimately entitled to the Permit, alongside a sig-
nature by a Peace Commissioner, Solicitor or Commissioner of
Oaths. Residents Parking Permits are valid until the 28th of
February each year.
Resident Parking Permit holders on the North Main Street cannot
park on that street between 11.00 am and 4.30 pm Monday to
Saturday but may park for free in any car park. Additionally, a
North Main Street resident may opt to hold a Residents Parking
Permit in respect of the next available street when making an
application. This means that a person on night shift work, for
example, may acquire a permit allowing them to park in an alter-
native street to avoid penalties.
On street parking:
A parking fee of €1 per hour will apply during business hours, with
a minimum fee of 20c. Additionally, Bye Law 8(f) stipulates that Brend Sheehan, Brigit O’Driscoll, An Taisce, Kieran Marigan Board of
Management, Anna O’Neill, Principal, Dr. Mary Stack, Environmental Awareness

leave that specific disc parking street for one hour before it can
return to the same disc parking area. They can meantime park in
another street. Free on-street parking from 1-2 pm will remain.
Hackney Operators:
The new bye-laws state that hackney vehicles i) cannot park in the
South Main Street/North Main Street areas except to set
down/pickup customers in the three designated points on those
streets; ii) cannot be parked for longer than 30 minutes in any car
park; iii) the set down/pick up areas are to operate on a 24 hour
basis excusive to hackneys licensed by the Taxi
Regulation/Commission for Taxi Regulation; iv) The maximum Pupils, Staff and Invited Guests at the Flag Raising Ceremony at Clonpriest National
set down/pick up time in areas where Construction Parking School.
Permits are in operation (Bye law 18) is five minutes; v) where
hackney spaces are provided, hackney drivers/operators are sub-
ject to the same pay parking restrictions as al other motorists and
must pay the relevant pay parking charges that apply to the area in
which they park. Effectively the laws mean that hackney drivers
cannot sit and wait within the town centre during business hours
but will operate on the basis of responding to calls when required.
Doctors Parking Permits:
The applicant must be a practising doctor within the town council
area, permits cost €40 per annum and the stipulations are much the
same as those applying to Resident Permit holders. Brigit O’Driscoll, An Taisce, Dr. Mary Stack,
