played with rackets and a hollow rubber ball. While at first view Liam we thank you for being you. Ar dheis de go raibh a anam.
racquetball seems to incorporate many of the rules of tennis and Alice Walsh,
handball, the truth is that racquetball is a unique sport. Invented in P.R. O. - Youghal Fine Gael.
1951 by Joe Sobek, who was looking for a fast-paced alternative
to tennis, it quickly caught on.
Because racquetball could be played in existing handball courts,
the game easily spread throughout existing Handball Clubs. The
court is clearly defined by a series of red lines indicating service
and reception areas, the standard rules of inbound and outbound
don’t apply in a racquetball court. For starters, there are no out-of-
bounds areas in the court: the walls, floor, and ceiling are accept-
able bouncing areas. The 40 x 20 foot (about 6 x 12 meters) room
has a service box and a receiving line, which the players must
respect during serve, but there are no other restrictions once the
serve has been made.
The rules of racquetball are pretty straightforward. As long as the
ball hits the front wall without bouncing on the floor, the serve is
valid. The ball is allowed to bounce an unlimited number of times
on any walls and on the ceiling before touching the front wall, as
long as it never reaches the ground. A point can only be scored by
the server, either because the ball is not returned by the opposite
player or because the ball bounces on the floor before reaching the
front wall. Points can also be scored if the ball hits a player, or if
a player switches hands during a rally or touches the ball with his
or her body.
Racquetball is usually played by two players, though some varia-
tions include up to four. Players can choose to make offensive or
defensive shots, which are defined by the height and speed at
which the ball is struck against the wall. Offensive shots aim for
the low corner, making it difficult for the opposite player to reach
the ball before it hits the ground. Defensive shots are aimed pri-
marily to the ceiling, based on the idea that this will make the ball
bounce deep into the court, usually traveling over the player.

Celebration Time In East

Cork As Cork Ladies Capture
Michael Slattery with Mary O Connor. Mary O Connor with her brother John All Ireland Glory
By John Cashman
Another trip to Croke Park, another All Ireland Final and yet
another win. By any standards the story of the Cork ladies football
team is sensational. From a period in years gone by when the
county was out there looking in, Cork have now turned into the
team that nobody can beat. A dramatic rise to sporting stardom has
set the script already searching for new superlatives to describe the
all round talents of this superb football outfit.
The obvious joy which the latest history making 4 in a row tri-
umph has brought to the ladies game in East Cork was there for all
to see when Angela Walsh led the victorious team on their home-
ward journey eventually concluding in Killeagh and Inch. This is
a very special team with a very special captain and a very special
set of players from the eastern part of the county.
Michael Slattery with Inch Rovers players Annie Walsh, Mary O Connor, Anne
Marie Walsh, Amy O Shea, Ciara and Angela Walsh and Tip O Connor It’s now wonder that bonfires blazed well into the night as the All
Ireland champions celebrated with family members, friends and a
large band of supporters before setting their minds on a return to
action with the hasty arrival of the domestic club championship on
the fixtures calendar.
The victory trail which began in Dublin early in the afternoon, had
stop off points in Mitchelstown, Fermoy and Watergrashill before
arriving at the traditional welcoming point at Cork’s Grand Parade.
However, followers of the team from this side of the county had in
the main stayed at home, instead preferring to begin the fireworks
as they team began their journey east.
In Killeagh and Inch the warmest greetings of all awaited. The
final assembly point at Inch Community Hall saw locals flock to
extend their congratulations to Angela Walsh, Anne Marie Walsh,
Mary O’Connor, Annie Walsh, Amy O’Shea and Ciara Walsh.
Nobody was in any doubt about the rich contribution that this
group of palyers had made to their club Inch Rovers and to the
county cause.
Anna Casey, Sarah O’Flynn, Orla O’Keeffe, Brooke Hastings and Ciara O’Keeffe Parents and family members were understandably especially
proud of what had evolved in Croke Park just the day previous, the
climax to a marathon season of commitment. Amongst the ladies
was also a very special local man who has been the driving force
behind Inch Rovers for many years. Noel O’Connor was also a
selector on with the victorious county team and made a massive
impact on the team’s ultimate triumph.
After the formalities of the ’welcome home’ speeches were com-
plete it was time to chat, eat and drink. The local community hall
in Inch has hosted several great social occasions through the cor-
ridors of time and this one was right up there with the best.
Although it was hasty return to action for the local stars due to
immediate club games, many of the squad did ensure the that the
traditional school visit ritual was followed by All Ireland winning
team. Understandably there was an outpouring of joy when the
Brendan Martin Cup was hoisted high by the local ladies who have
now become national names.
Congrats again - Angela, Amy, Mary Annie, Ciara and Ann Marie
- and of course Noel.
Emer Slattery, Sheila Dennehy and Michael Slattery Here’s to the 5 in a row!.

speak to the meeting regarding the proposed purchase of two
defibrillators and the organising of training courses for volunteers
in our Parish. He advised the meeting on the implications of same
and it was agreed that two defibrillators would be purchased and
training courses organised. An appeal was launched for volun-
teers with most of those present at the meeting putting their name
forward. This training course is open to all members of our parish
and as a large number of volunteers would be required to make

people to consider assisting with this endeavour. If you are inter-

Youghal News.....Oct 16th 2008

In the past, you’ve gone to Christmas parties only to sing off-key
Christmas carols and get drunk. But this year, instead of doing
these things in a corner by yourself, why not get some friends and
family together and host the event? That way, you can subtly point
out to all of your guests the many items that you need in your
house that would coincidentally make great Christmas gifts. So
whether you want to host an elaborate gala or a last-minute fiesta, - Chinese Restaurant -
this is the guide for you.

1. START PLANNING IN EARLY DECEMBER 116 North Main Street, Youghal

If possible, you should start planning your party early; this is
because - as we’re sure you’ve noticed - the month of December
Telephone: 024-91770 or 91989
gets crazier and crazier as the days go by. So it’s a good idea to Open Monday-Sunday 5.30pm - 12.00am
take care of all the big things first (date, location, menu) and not
worry about all the tiny details until a couple of days before the big Lunch Special
Thursday - Sunday 12.30pm - 2.30pm
Here are some things you should get done within the first two
weeks of December:
Make a guest list, Send out invitations
Plan a menu, Set a budget for food and decorations Takeaway and Delivery Service
Make a guest list Tel: 024 90668 or 90669
Invite only the number of people that you can handle. Remember
that because of all the present shopping you’ll be doing this month, Deliveries Start at 6pm
you’ll probably be on the verge of bankruptcy, so don’t throw a
shindig for 50 people if you can only afford to feed ten. Also take
into account the size of your place and the fact that some of your
Open 7 Days a Week
guests will probably bring a friend or two without asking you.
Finally, if you have to keep your guest list short, then cut out your
work friends - you’ll probably have a separate holiday party with
them at the office/garage/zoo anyway.

Send out invitations

Once you’ve settled on who you’re going to invite, it’s time to
invite them. Start inviting people as soon as possible because your
guests will probably be busy with their own holiday chores and
will need a lot of notice. Here are some rules on proper party-invit-
ing so that you don’t commit some egregious faux pas you didn’t
even know existed:
Do all your inviting at once so that nobody feels like he/she was
invited as an afterthought or a replacement for another guest who Let Le Gourmet take care of
couldn’t make it. Either send out written invitations on the same your Christmas Party this year
day or just pick up the phone (the method that we prefer). If all
your guests are technologically inclined (read: computer dorks),
send out e-mail invitations through sendomatic.com or evite.com. We can supply food to your company
(But call anyone who doesn’t respond within a week, just in case). or in a "pub / club" venue
Invite everybody yourself (as opposed to asking someone to pass
the message along to others) so that everyone at the party feels

comfortable showing up.
If it’s OK for your guests to bring dates or kids, indicate it on the
invitations; otherwise ask your guests to alert you in advance don’t forget hampers & gift vouchers - a perfect
about anybody they’re bringing. In either case, you should ask way of saying "thanks" this Christmas
your guest to RSVP with an exact number of tag-alongs. It’s not
unreasonable for you to know how many people to expect and pre-
pare for.
Give clues so that people will know how to dress and what to
expect on the menu. Words like "causal" will indicate that jeans
are OK, while words like "fancy-shmancy" will create a different
set of expectations. Tel. 024 20000 / 087 2319210
Set the date of your party on any Thursday night, Friday night,
Saturday, or Sunday before Christmas or on Christmas Eve. Most 5 River Gate Mall, Youghal
Youghal News.....Oct 16th 2008

people spend time with their families on Christmas Day, and after
the 25th, everyone will be concentrating on New Year’s, so don’t
plan on throwing your party then.

Set a budget for food and decorations

Figure out exactly much you need before heading to the store - this
way you won’t come away with 20 bags of miniature marshmal-
lows and a battery-operated belly-dancing Santa. Here’s the way to
do it:
Write down everything you definitely want to have and estimate a
reasonable cost next to it. Include everything from chip dip to
Always overprice when in doubt. If you think hot chocolate mix
costs between 2.00 to 3.00 a box, mark it down as 3.00. This
way, you won’t be caught without enough money at the supermar-
After you’ve made up your list, total the cost of all your items, and
add another 10% to the price. Don’t forget the paper napkins, plas-
ticware, and extra toilet paper.
If the budget comes out to be way over what you expected to
spend, critically revise your list. (Do you really need to personal-
ize each guest’s paper cup?)
Expect to spend about 100 on food and drink alone-more if
you’re entertaining more than ten people, and a lot more if you’re
planning to have a party where people might get, shall we say,
"sloshed" on the eggnog.
Once you’re at the supermarket, don’t buy anything that’s not on
the list, unless it’s something important that you forgot. Impulse
buys are the bane of a good budget.
Have fun!
