All Ireland Pool Champion

A sincere congratulations to Mike Moriarty who was crowned All Ireland Pool Champion in a tightly contested competition in Killarney last week. 

A great achievement that acknowledges his hours of practice and cool head under pressure. 
The home-coming that was organised in the Square by Dave Curtin saw so many friends, neighbours and family turn out to show their appreciation for Mike.  Well done, brother.  

GAA: A Big Week for Minors

A big week for our minors who won the county title in a very strong showing against St. Mary’s Renard. 

Well done to all involved. A brilliant result for our boys.
Grinding Out a Win in Keel
The Brosna seniors headed to Keel on Sunday for round 2 of the championship.
Getting off to a shaky start, our lads found their rhythm and showed great fortitude in grinding out the scores.
A great work rate and a really positive attitude, not just on the pitch but from the sideline, saw Brosna flourish and deliver the sort of game we are well capable of. 
We’re not the finished article yet, but what I saw in Keel was a glimpse of a team that can produce fresh, energetic and intelligent play.  Proud to see it.  Full-time Brosna 2-13.  Keel 1-13.
One Small Change No. 3
Let’s talk about ‘stuff’.  By that I mean all the things we buy from clothing to home-wares to furniture. 
Ask yourself if you are buying stuff because you Want it or Need it ?
So much stuff ends up in landfills.  Don’t forget it’s not just the waste you are creating but also the energy and resources to make the object you are replacing in your life. 
Try to Repair, Re-use, Re-upholster, Re-love your belongings. 
Buy good quality to begin with and spend your money on positive experiences instead of family outings, helping someone in need. 
Changing someone’s life for the better will give you a better sense of joy than another pair of shoes.  Try it and see.
