Lixnaw Community Games

Nationals – Last weekend in Carlow, 12 boys from the parish of Lixnaw competed in the All-Ireland Community Games. First up at 10am Saturday morning was Steve Reidy in the U.14 100m. Steve ran his semi-final very well but against a strong field of runners, unfortunately, he was outside the qualifying positions for the final.

Dylan O’Callaghan followed in the U.16 100m sprint. Dylan ran a fantastic semi-final and comfortably made the top four to qualify. In the final, Dylan drove up the track and crossed the finish line with the four other leading runners and there was nothing between them. Upon deliberation by the stewards, Dylan was just pipped for medal position, coming in fifth place. It should be noted that both Steve and Dylan will still be under age for these races again next year.

Just before lunchtime, the U.12 Boys Relay Team competed in their heat. This team consisted of: Thomas Keane, Corey Heaphy, Éamon Kennelly, Donnacha Quilter, Richie Reidy and Ethan Stack. The boys ran a perfect relay, coming in fourth place to qualify for the semi-final. Shortly after, they were on the track again, where they battled hard for a place in the final. The competition proved too strong and they were unlucky to finish in fifth position. Two great races by these young lads in their first experience of a National Community Games.

Last up were the U.14 Boys Relay Team made up of: Maurice Galvin, Jerry Galvin, Steve Reidy, James Hunt and Paddy Larkin. These boys ran a powerful semi-final to claim third place. In the final, these boys showed real grit and determination but strong competition kept them outside the medals. Lixnaw Community Games Committee are very proud of these lads. They ran in the hottest county in Ireland on this day, wilted in the heat but stood tall when they were called upon to race. Well done boys, up Lixnaw, up Kerry!

Heritage Week

Heritage Week 2022 event at our Lime Kiln in Lyreacrompane. This Sunday, August 21 at 3pm. Speaker will be Billy Downes, a Brosna man living in Tralee, who has done extensive research into lime Kilns. Weather permitting we will also have some songs and a few tunes.

The soil in upland areas like Lyreacrompane in the Stacks Mountains is naturally poor. It was recognized a few centuries ago that the spreading of lime on the land increased its productivity by a factor of three to four. This made the enclosing of upland areas worthwhile for the landlord and the tenant. Landlords encouraged the building of kilns to produce lime and sometimes offered limestones free in the knowledge that a more productive tenant meant higher rent.

Visitors to our area and people passing through will have noticed a new landmark with the exposure of a long-hidden Lime Kiln and a newly developed picnic area on the main road through Lyreacrompane. As part of Heritage week, we are organising this event there and people will have a chance to see the renovated kiln and hear all about its intriguing history and how it was operated.

Parking is available near the Lyreacrompane Community Development Centre 500 yards away and we will leave from there for the kiln by 2.40pm. This is an outdoor event so keep the weather in mind. Lyreacrompane is situated halfway along on the road between Listowel and Castleisland. For more information on our ‘Learning about Lime Kilns in Lyreacrompane’ event please call 0872853570 anytime. You can also find our event listed on the Heritage Week website.
