ed the community to an open day in the main office which includ-
ed light beverages and other treats.
Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives that provide
an effective and viable alternative to for-profit financial institu-
tions for more than 186 million members in 97 countries world-
wide. They exist to serve their members, providing a safe place to
save money and access affordable loans.
Youghal Credit Union Limited has over €80 million in assets with
shares amounting to €70.8 million and loans outstanding of €40.8
million. Youghal Credit Union Limited has sub offices in Killeagh
and Ardmore and services approximately 12,000 members.
Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated
annually on the third Thursday of October. Each year, the interna-
tional event affords the opportunity to remember credit unions'
proud history and promote awareness of and support for the cred- Kathleen Smiddy and Fiona Keniry enjoying a cup of tea with Youghal Credit
it union difference. This year's theme -Your Money. Your Choice. Union Staff Sinead Aherne and Christine Griffin and with Helen Waide of the
Your Credit Union - underlines the credit union and cooperative Promotion and Development Committee
spirit, emphasizing value, trust and service to members.
This year has seen Youghal Credit Union Limited invest in the
local community by lending €16 million to members. We believe
that most of that money was spent locally and generated business
for the local economy. Youghal Credit Union Limited was also a
major contributor to the local enterprise centre which has recently
been established to generate local sustainable employment.
Credit unions are not-for-profit financial co-operatives that pro-
vide an effective and viable alternative to for-profit financial insti-
tutions for more than 2.9 million members on the island of Ireland.
They are member-owned and exist to provide a safe place to save
money and access affordable loans. Currently Youghal Credit
Union Limited offers a fixed Home Loan rate of 6% which has
certain terms and conditions that apply. In the past number of
years Youghal Credit Union Limited has also paid a loan interest

rebate to members which further reduces the cost of borrowing. pictured with Siobhan and Marian Christine Griffin with Louise and Ryan

According to Kieron Brennan CEO of the Irish League of Credit
"Credit unions are based in the heart of local communities and
have a real understanding of the needs of their members. In these
uncertain times, more and more people are turning to credit unions
as they become disillusioned with other financial providers. Credit
unions are all about people. They exist to serve members, not to
profit from their needs".
The ILCU represents 103 Credit Unions in Northern Ireland, with
almost 380,000 members, and assets of £885 million.
Earlier this year, credit unions in Ireland announced a new associ-
ation with Irish international rugby player Brian O'Driscoll. Over
the coming year Brian will be working with the Irish League of Paggy Lawton, Helen Waide and Nuala
O’Keeffe. Thomas and Lily Bulman
Credit Unions to promote both credit unions and credit union ini-
tiatives. This association will seek to highlight the very signifi-
cant contribution that credit unions make in local communities at
every level.
Commenting on the announcement Brian O Driscoll said "I am
delighted to have become involved with the credit union move-
ment at this time. I believe it is an important time for our commu-
nities and I have always greatly admired the valuable role that
credit unions have played in fostering a sense of belonging and
team work".
The Irish Credit Union movement is among the most successful in
the world with the highest membership per capita. Started in 1958
by 3 pioneers, Nora Herlihy, Séamus P Mac Eoin and Sean Forde,
the Irish Credit Union movement has steadily expanded its servic-
es to meet the changing needs of members over the past fifty one Valerie Walsh, Mary Morrisson, Geraldine Hearty & Barry Treacy

Winter League
Last season we had a record number of 16 players enter the Winter
League, it was a great success and we are delighted to be able to
report that we have 34 players entered this year!! The format of
the competition has the league drawn into four sections. The sec-
tions are seeded with the top players from the ladder being evenly
mixed through the four sections. Players will match off against
each other over the coming months. The top four from each sec-
tion will then qualify for the Winter Cup and the bottom for the
Winter Plate. The sections have thrown up some good combina-
tions and we are looking forward to seeing how players like Simon
Primm, Brian Walsh & Mark Walsh do in Section A. Meanwhile
in Section B we will be looking to see how Jimmy Keogh, Billy
O’Callaghan, Brian Coakley & Brian Fitzgerald perform. Section
C new players to watch are John Malone, Jason Browne & Martin
Pierce, while in Section D John Kenefick, Kevin Power & Stuart
Hickey will be looking to make a dent in their sections also.
Round 1 fixtures are to be played before October 31st and are as
Bill Morris vs. Dwaine O'Shea Liam Joyce vs. Simon Primm

Racquetball Association Of Ireland Fundraiser
A few weeks ago the RAI held a fundraiser in Kingscourt, Co
Cavan. Local man Keith Gallogley travelled from Youghal to
compete. The format of this competition was an open draw, where
you could get drawn against Ireland top players. Keith did very
well and managed to beat some very stiff opposition in the open-
ing rounds as he caused a bit of an upset as he progressed to the
semi-final and knocked out a couple of B players on the way. In
the semi-final he was drawn against Sean Keane from Fermoy.
Sean is an open player and also an established player on the Irish
Team. This was a bridge too far for Keith, but we are all delight-
ed with his progress in this competition.

encounter the result could have been diferent. All in all it's hard to
gauge the reaction to Yesterdays defeat. There was bitter disa-
pointment from the lads who have lost two league finals running

tainly costing the lads and this is something Mickey Downing and
His Team will surely put right for next seasons assault on the
league and Championship. The work ethic and fighting spirit from
the lads is second to none but the lack of a free scoring forward is
also hindering progress. Lets hope the young guns in the forward
line will mature into this type of player for 2010.
Well done to all concerned for giving the supporters a roller coast-

have some silverware to show for your endeavours next Year.

SIMI Launches Nationwide Safe
Car Campaign 2009 offering
Motorists Free Car Safety Check
The SIMI (Society of the Irish Motor Industry on the 31st
August) launched its ‘Safe Car Campaign 2009’ . The SIMI
is offering motorists a visual car check, free of charge, at
participating dealerships for the months of September and
October 2009, just in time for the back to school run!
The Safe Car Campaign 2009 will highlight the importance
of regular vehicle servicing and encourage drivers to be
aware of the necessity to check their vehicle on an ongoing
basis. The SIMI has devised a Visual Check Sheet which
garages will provide to the customer on completion of the
check. The visual check will include checks on tyres, brakes,
suspension, steering, levels, battery & hoses, interior con-
trols, lights and exhaust.
Speaking at the launch of the campaign, SIMI’s Director
General, Alan Nolan said, “We are encouraging all motorists
to avail of this free, 10-point car check which is being
offered at all participating SIMI member garages. With chil-
dren back to school and the inevitable increase in traffic, it
is important that people are mindful of the importance of
checking items such as tyres and brakes on a regular basis.
This free check will identify any major problems that may
exist in the car and make drivers aware of the areas that they
should be vigilant of and check regularly.”

CORK "20? International Rally
3rd & 4th October
The Cork 20 International Rally was the final round of the Tarmac
Championship and there was a strong east Cork presence on the
event.Gareth macHale won the event with an impressive fastest
time on every stage but Eugene Donnelly in the Skoda won the
Tarmac Championship with a controlled drive to take second.A
very impressive 4th overall and 4th in the Tarmac Championship
was Midleton driver Daragh O ' Riordan who was an easy winner
of class A6a and was first two wheel drive car home.
Another impressive drive from Allen Treacy / Bob Fitzgerald in
the Class 13 corolla, the sideways Allen was 4th overall in the
National section of the rally and first in class.
The battle of the rally was in class 11 between Jason Ryan , Moss
Fitzgerald and Wesley Daly seconds seperated these lads all week-
end the win going to Jason Ryan in the Youghal Kia Motors Civic,
a mere 4 seconds behind was Moss Fitzgerald in the Corolla and
20 seconds later the Escort of Wesley Daly , other finishers in that

/Pat Cashman both in Corollas.
William Kenneally / Finbarr Fogerty finished 4th in class 12 and
James Cunningham and Joe Fitzgibbon finished 4th on the Sunday

There is a new limited edition Focus and I

took it for a spin.
The Ford Focus remains even through these though times Irelands
most popular car and the diesel option is becoming very popular Gareth McHale gets some air near Ballynoe
with the motorist looking for value for money.The Focus LX
Special Edition is a 1.6 TDCI 90 bhp car with a host of extras like
Alloy Wheels,Fog lamps and air conditioning to name but some of
the extras on this car there are a whole range of safety features and
other stuff I could be naming for the evening .
This car has extremely low CO2 emissions and because of that
the road tax for the year is just €104.00, other good stuff about this
car is it does up to 60 MPG and with petrol and diesel set to rise
with the help of the green party that will be a factor in buying your
car.This car is available as a hatch back only, well they love them
in Europe, and at a price of €21,800 its all good.
Sitting in the seats are comfortable and the ride is solid in fact the
Focus is still the best handling car in this class so it is always a
nice car to drive ,the controls are simple and easy to use and
everything seems to be in the right place , the gear shift is smooth
Jason Ryan class 11 winner in the Youghal Kia Motors Civic
and easy to use and the drive is really comfortable.This car has
more then ample power for easy passing of other vehicles on the
road and is a joy to drive on a long journey.
The Focus has a 5 star NCAP rating the best for safety and is
roomy and comfortable for the rear seat passengers. Gone are the
days of the noisy diesel that was sluggish this car will get you
there in comfort and style.
Your never going to go far wrong with a Focus its one of the most
popular cars in the world and with all the extras offered as stan-
dard in this car its worth checking out. Thanks to David at
Abernethy's for the use of the car in this test.
