Last year he hit the headlines when he broke the Guinness World Record having completed the most Ironman 70.3 mile triathlon races in twelve months. A triathlon consists of a 1.9km swim, a 90km cycle and a 21.3km run and Declan managed to break the old record of 24 in a year when he finished his 25th in Otepaa, Estonia. Not one to rest on his laurels Declan set out on his latest challenge at the end of June as he set out to complete 32 111km triathlons consisting of a 1km swim, 100km cycle and 10km run.

you can see I’m half the person size wise. He drove me all over Ireland and put up with my hissy fits so big thanks to him,” stated Declan. “Physically it was tough but I was mentally prepared for what was ahead of me and when my legs were aching and telling me to stop I was able to keep going and shut down any negative thoughts. The toughest part was probably on the bike from Sligo to Castlebar when a strong wind was in my face throughout the journey which was tough to deal with but thankfully we made it and finished the challenge without any issues or injuries. “I’d also like to thank my family who have always been so supportive of me and they were in Armagh, Roscommon, Down, Westmeath and at the finish line in Dundalk to help me during the challenge. All in all we’ve managed to raise over €20,000 which will help us deliver more programmes for free to kids in schools all over the country. I’d like to thanks everybody who donated or helped and for all the generosity and good wishes I’ve received during this gruelling but rewarding challenge,” added Declan.

just about failed to find the target as Qarabag hung on. Dundalk will still go into this evening’s game as big underdogs but that final twenty minutes in Oriel Park will have given supporters hope that another glorious European evening could be on the cards. The squad began the arduous nine-hour flight to Baku on Monday morning and trained in the stadium yesterday ahead of one of the biggest matches in the club’s history. Should Dundalk pull of the upset they will face the winners of the tie between APOEL (Cyprus) and Sutjeska (Montenegro) in the third qualifying round. The first leg would take place away from home on Tuesday the 6th of August while the home leg would take place a week

later on Tuesday 13th in Tallaght Stadium at 8pm. Should Dundalk lose this evening to Qarabag they would drop into the third round of the UEFA Europa League, where they would face either Slovakian champions Slovan Bratislava or Feronikeli of Kosovo. If they play Slovan Bratislava, the game will take place on Wednesday 7 August at the Tehelne Pole stadium in Bratislava. Kick-off time will be 20:15 local time (19:15 IST). If Feronikeli are the opposition, the game will take place on Thursday 8 August at the Rexhep Rexhepi Stadium in Glogovac. The home leg would take place on Tuesday 13 August at Tallaght Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 20:00.

on life, no matter what it throws at them. Ireland has the fourth highest rate of suicide amongst teenagers and this was the driving force behind Super You. Speaking after his 32nd and final triathlon a tired but delighted Declan thanked everybody who had supported him all across the country throughout the 32- day challenge. “The people all over the country were so kind and generous and gave me that little bit of extra energy I needed to get me across the finishing line each day. Triathlon clubs from all over the country made the challenge so much easier for me by setting up the course and to be honest all I had to do was turn up and compete each day. Hotels owners were also very generous and gave me a bed each night which was huge for me as it meant I knew I had somewhere decent to stay in after a tough day on the road. Peter Tomany was with me every step of the way and he was the man who coached and trained me through the challenge! My times got faster throughout the 32 days thanks to him and he drove me all over Ireland! And I think

Dundalk FC fans will be hoping their team can give them yet another memorable European night as they take on Azerbaijan champions Qarabag in this evening’s Champions League second round second leg tie. After an hour of the first leg at Oriel Park you would have been hard pressed to find any Dundalk fans who were in any way confident of the Lilywhites progressing against a very good Qarabag side. The Azerbaijan team had taken an early lead and in truth looked a step above Vinny Perth’s side for most of the first half and the early stages of the second half. Tricky winger Abdellah Zoubir was causing havoc down the Dundalk left while

midfielder Richard Almeida oozed class as he sprayed balls left and right setting up attacks for the visitors. However, as the game entered its final quarter something changed and suddenly Dundalk were on the front foot and it was Qarabag who were now making mistakes with the excellent Chris Shields driving his side forward. Michael Duffy and

Jamie McGrath finally were beginning to find space and with thirteen minutes to go the old ground erupted as record goalscorer Pat Hoban reacted quickest after the ball arrived to him via a deflection to make it 1-1 on the night. Dundalk were well on top now and really could have won the game but late chances for Dane Massey, Jamie McGrath and Michael Duffy

Tommy hopes to relocate painting of Mayoralty House Shop business into the building in 1976 much to the delight of locals who were delighted to see the famous old building brought back to life. A number of years ago Tommy bought a painting of the Mayoralty House which had The Sound Shop logo splashed across the side of the building. Tommy adored the painting and for years had it hanging proudly inside his job. Then about seven or eight years ago Tommy gave a lend of the

painting to a lady who asked could she use it for an upcoming exhibition. Tommy obliged but never received the painting back and now the Drogheda businessman is on a mission to reclaim his prized possession. “Unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of the lady who I gave the painting to but I do remember she came into my shop and I think she was from Mid-Louth. She asked could she borrow the painting for an exhibition that she was

organising and I gave it to her but unfortunately I never got it back. I really loved that painting and I’m spreading the word to see if anybody out there can help get it back to me. I’m guessing it’s still somewhere in Louth so if anybody reading has any information at all I would be forever grateful if you could get in contact with me,” stated Tommy. If anybody can help they can call 0419831078 or email jenny@thetlt.ie .

Competitors at the 2017 Poc Fada on the Cooley mountains at Annaverna

Poc Fada na hEireann 2019

The 2019 Martin Donnelly GAA All-Ireland Poc Fada Finals was officially launched by Uachtaran Chumann Luthchleas Gael, John Horan in Croke Park on Tuesday July 23, 2019. The All-Ireland Poc Fada finals in Hurling and Camogie will be held on the Cooley Mountains at Annaverna on Saturday August 3. The competition was first held in 1960 and following a short hiatus from 1970 to 1980, it returned in 1981 and has been ever present on the National calendar since. The unique Gaelic Games contest promises to be a great day of sport. Speaking at the draw John Horan said “I welcome this year’s staging of the Poc Fada competition for 2019 and wish all the competitors well in what must be on the most unique competitions in our stable. “Few of our events uncapsulate the history of the game in the way that the Poc Fada does and the route the players and followers will take over the Annaverna Mountain is nothing short of spectacular. “A special word on thanks was given to the organising committee and to the sponsor and partner Martin Donnelly for his ongoing support. Speaking about this year’s Finals Uachtaran an Cumann Camogaiochta Kathleen Woods said: “The August Bank Holiday weekend is always a fantastic occasion on the Cooley Peninsula when we witness the wonderful spectacle which is the Poc Fada Finals. This is a unique and exciting competition which showcas-

es some of the key skills of our game and I am very much looking forward to another thrilling competition this year”. Defending senior hurling champion Cillian Kiely (Offaly) puts his crown on the line against a high calibre field that includes his brother Cathal and the Martin Donnelly picks, Patrick Horgan (Cork) and Poc Fada veteran Brendan Cummins (Tipperary). The Kielys had dominated the U16 competition in recent times and will be hoping that the trend continues in the senior competition for years to come. There will also be local interest in the senior competition with Naomh Moninne hurler and Louth Poc Fada champion Darren Geoghegan earning a place in the field where he is sure to earn the support of the local spectators on the day. Darren who featured regularly for the Louth senior hurlers in 2019 goes out first in a field of 12 hurlers. Susan Earner (Galway) also returns to defend the Senior title she captured in 2017 and 2018. The under 16 hurling competition will have a new name on the trophy after Kyle Shelly won the trophy in 2018. Oisin Marley (Donegal) returns to the mountain having competed in last year’s All-Ireland Final. The under 16 camogie competition will be contested by competitors from Antrim, Cork, Dublin, and Galway and will see a new champion crowned. The M Donnelly GAA All-Ireland Finals proceedings will get underway at 11am next Saturday

August 3 on Annaverna Mountain, Ravensdale, Co Louth. There will also be a childrens Poc Fada for under 8’s and under 10’s during the day. Refreshments will also be available on the day supplied by Last Lap Café.

Lack of Insurance Cover a threat to ‘hundreds of jobs”

Sinn Féin TD for Louth Gerry Adams has written to the Minister for Finance regarding the recent decision by AXA XL, the underwriter of Leisure Insure, not to offer cover to Irish companies. Gerry Adams said: “The owners of Pelican Promotions in Dundalk have been in contact with my Sinn Féin colleague Councillor Ruairí Ó Murchú, to say that they will be unable to renew their public liability insurance when it expires on

13th August. “The reason for this is a decision which has been made by Axa XL, the underwriter of Leisure Insure which announced it was ending cover this week. “The majority of Irish operators of inflatables are insured with Leisure Insure and at present there is no alternative provider. “Pelican Promotions have contacted alternative insurance providers in this jurisdiction and in

the north, but none are willing to provide insurance cover. “This will potentially affect other businesses such as paintball, airsoft sites, pet farms, athletic and dance clubs and outdoor adventure centres. “It is a huge issue which has the potential to jeopardise hundreds of jobs across the sector. “I have requested a meeting with the Minister for Finance and I hope to press him to deliver a solu-

tion to this issue.” Councillor Ruairí Ó Murchú added, “Sinn Féin has long been critical of the Government’s failure to regulate the insurance industry. “Axa XL have stated that following a “strategic review” they have concluded that “current, well-documented market dynamics, mean this business does not fit our business plan going forward”. “This is proof that the Gov-

ernment needs to support Pearse Doherty’s Consumer Insurance Contracts Bill which will radically reform insurance contracts. “It is also further evidence of the need to address truly fraudulent claims to ensure that genuine businesses are not collateral damage to the prevalent ‘claim culture’. “I hope that a resolution can be found for Pelican Promotions and all of the other leisure providers.”

Success for athletes in Tullamore

The County Louth senior men’s and women’s athletics teams enjoyed another great day at the National League Final in Tullamore on Saturday, 20 July. The women’s team recorded their best ever result, as they finished fourth in the top-tier Premier Division – a significant improvement on their previous best of seventh place, which was achieved last year. The ever-consistent men’s team finished sixth in Division One once again – the same result as in 2014, 2017 and 2018. Leading the way for the women were two athletes who won their events – Abbie Sheridan (Ardee & District) in the her first ever outing in the 3000m Steeplechase – her time of 11:22.20 was a new Louth record – and Erika Juozapaitė (Blackrock) in the Triple Jump, who recorded a personal best of 10.38m. There were impressive second place finishes for Geraldine Finegan (North East Runners) in the Shot Putt with 9.32m

From Dundee to The Shetlands and round to Carlingford News

Zoë and John’s guests for the second concert of the 2019 summer series are two of Scotland’s most renowned and sought after traditional musicians, fiddler Chris Stout and harpist Catriona McKay. Catriona was voted ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2014. Like John and Zoë, they defy easy categorisation and play across all genres. Also in common with our hosts who regularly accompany the RTE concert orchestra these days, Catriona and Chris frequently play with the Scottish Ensemble. Last year, they performed a double concerto for Shetlands fiddle and Scottish harp, which recounts musically the adventures, emotions and vistas of a sea journey from Dundee to the Shetlands. The exciting, uplifting and beautiful Seavaigers, written for them by Sally Beam-

ish, now available as a CD, has been widely acclaimed throughout Scotland and internationally. No strangers to the concert stage, they are equally at home in the intimate setting of a fisher-family cottage on the East Neuk of Fife, composing and performing Louise’s Waltz. Chris recalls one of his more unusual settings being a cave half way up a mountain in Northern Norway. Their current album has a direct, non-nonsense, almost streetfighter ring to it – Bare Knuckle. Looking forward to hearing and seeing some of that! Anyway, the setting on Sunday 4th August is the simple, light-filled and gracious Carlingford Heritage Centre. As has become the tradition, John and Zoë will open the performance with a miscellany of tunes and songs, old and new, many of their new compositions.

Catriona and Chris likewise will then come on stage to play some of their repertoire and by the end of the concert, these four uniquely talented musicians will be together to produce their fusion of the best in modern Scottish and Irish traditional music. Not one for music lovers to miss! Concert commences at 4pm. Tickets €12 (concession €10). Tickets can be purchased on line at www. carlingfordheritagecentre.com or by e-mail at info@carlingfordheritagecentre.com or by phone +353 (42) 9373454 or +353 (42) 9373888 Please note that the concert will start at 4pm sharp. Parking is an issue in Carlingford on Sundays and patrons are advised to arrive early. Chris Stout and Catriona McKay

Enjoy a Summer of Seafood in County Louth!

Rosemary Gallagher, Staff Officer, Economic Development Unit Louth County Council, Vincent Mulligan, The Spotted Dog, Dundalk, Mary Carolan, Economic Development Unit Louth County Council, Conor O’Neill, The Glyde Inn, Annagassan, Sinead Roche, Dundalk Tourism Officer and Grainne McKeown, Boyne Valley Food Development Officer promoting the Summer of Seafood in Louth Brochure.

The Boyne Valley Food Development Officer, in conjunction with Louth County Council, is delighted to announce a new initiative to promote the wonderful local seafood in our coastal county. A “Summer of Seafood in Louth” highlights the array of fresh seafood available right on our doorstep such as whitefish, lobster, mussels and crab, not to mention our famous Carlingford Oysters, and the fishing fleet in Louth which forms the backbone for the world famous Dublin Bay prawn (langoustine), Ireland’s second most valuable species. A number of restaurants from across the county have got on board to showcase the variety of seafood

dishes and local ingredients on their menus, with something to suit everyone’s taste buds. Gráinne McKeown, Boyne Valley Food Development Officer for Louth and Meath explains “The Summer of Seafood in Louth initiative is spotlighting the 26 local award winning restaurants across the county who got on board. Together we aim to promote the beautiful coastline of Louth and the amazing quality local seafood we have to offer. Louth also has some amazing food festivals such as the Carlingford Oyster Festival and Taste of Togher which celebrate local food”. Rosemary Gallagher, Economic Development, Louth County

perform their music ALL FOR CHARITY in Toales to exclusively benefit local mental health services charity SOSAD. As we all know, suicide is a difficult

subject to talk about and it has destroyed countless families lives throughout the country. 80% of families within communities in Ireland have been affected

by suicide. The northeast mental health charity SOSAD would like us to start talking about well-being issues. I feel that music is a fantastic way of raising awareness and even helping people who are feeling depressed. SOSAD do great work locally and are always looking for funding so why not come down and play a few tunes for charity?,” asked Gerard. Trad for Sosad will take place this Friday 2nd August in Toales Bar in Crowe Street. The music will start from 10pm and everybody is welcome to pop in. All musicians are welcome on the night.

Chairman of Louth Beekeepers Association welcomes call for extra funding

The chairman of the Louth Beekeepers Association has welcomed a motion at last Monday’s Louth County Council meeting which requested extra funding for the development of our indigenous bee keeping industry. Newly elected Fianna Fáil councillor Erin McGreehan entered the motion during Monday’s monthly council meetings stating that the value and protection of bees should be promoted and encouraged.

“That Louth County Council request that the Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform include funding in the 2020 Budget for the development of our indigenous Bee Keeping industry. This industry whilst popular in Louth needs extra resources and encouragement, to promote new members to get started and the encouragement of established Beekeepers to expand and improve. The value and the protection of the honeybee should be

promoted and encouraged. The honeybee is the world’s most important pollinator of food crops, therefore is crucial to the health of our future ecology.” Louth Beekeepers Association chairman Martin O’Rourke welcomed the motion saying that there is a lot more that can be done to help the industry locally. “We are a group of volunteers who try and make sure that we have plenty of bees and honey around Co. Louth. We have some

fantastic people in the association and we are always looking to get new members in to ensure we have enough beekeepers going forward. We currently have about 120 members and each year we run a beginners course in beekeeping each year to help maintain and improve our numbers. “We also go into schools and teach them about beekeeping and biodiversity and we have also supplied books on beekeeping to all the libraries around the

country. We have been talking to people in the council about biodiversity plans and although we have been getting some help from them there is still a lot more to do. This year we were delighted to see that grass verges were left to grow which is just a simple thing but hugely important for the survival of the bee. Even letting dandelions grow makes a huge difference to the biodiversity locally and rather than mow the lawn at the first sight of dandelions

we would encourage people to delay doing that whenever possible. “There is an All-Ireland Pollinator plan which we are a part of which encourages people to do all they can to let wildflowers and hedgerows bloom for the sake of pollinators. That could mean cutting down on the use of pesticides or just simply allowing some extra growth in certain areas. We are not talking about letting the landscape go

wild but managing it in a way that is kept sustainable for bees. We have seen other county council’s come up with innovate ways to help the bee out such as planting wildflowers on roundabouts and we would like to see a bit more done in Louth as well. Funding would be fantastic as we don’t currently get any and we would love to sit down with council officials and come up with ideas to help ensure the survival of bees locally,” stated Martin.

Dundalk Golf Club retain Barton Shield Dundalk Golf Club have retained the Leinster Barton Shield and booked their place in the AllIreland semi-final in Westport at the end of September. Last Saturday at Royal Tara Golf Club, Dundalk beat Woodbrook in the provincial semi-final in the morning before defeating The Island in the final to win a second successive senior pennant. “Last year was the first time since the Club was founded in 1905 that we won a senior pennant so to have gone out this year and retained it is very special and a great achievement by the lads,” said John Conlon who jointly manages the team with Alan McCabe. “But it is only a step towards our ultimate goal this year which is to win the All-Ireland title. We were very disappointed to lose in last year’s final and our whole focus this year has been on getting back to the national final and bringing a green pennant back to Dundalk.” The Barton Shield is a competition for elite players with two two-man pairings playing, off scratch, in a foursomes matchplay format and the match being decided by the aggregate number of holes won. Dundalk got a massive boost on the eve of the Leinster finals when Caolan Rafferty announced he was available to play after being knocked out in the second round of the South of Ireland Championship on Friday evening. “We were planning without Caolan because he was the defending champion in the South of Ireland and we were all hoping that he would be in the mix over the weekend,” said Conlon. “It is

testament to the type of person he is that immediately after losing on the 20th hole of his second round match, he got into his car and phoned to say he was on his way back and would be in Navan in the morning.” Quite how Woodbrook felt when the plus six handicapper, who has been named on the 14 man panel from which the ten players to represent Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup will be picked, teed it up isn’t known, but after winning the first hole they must have felt they were going to benefit from a post-Lahinch hangover. It proved to be a short-lived feeling because on the second hole Rafferty fired an approach shot to 15 feet and his partner Eoin Murphy sank the birdie putt to bring the match back to all-square. At the next hole, the Dundalk pairing went one up after Woodbrook put their third shot in the bushes behind the green and stretched their lead to two holes on the par four sixth when Murphy drove around the dog-leg to within 10 yards of the front of the green and Rafferty chipped in for an eagle two. Although they lost the seventh they turned for home three up after winning the eighth and ninth with birdies. They lost the tenth but restored their three shot advantage on the 12th. It was clear at this stage that this match was going to decide who would advance to the final because up ahead Josh Mackin and Brendan Lawlor were heading for defeat after a frustrating morning on the greens. After losing the first hole, they got back to all square by winning the third in par. However, they lost fourth, sixth and seventh to fall three

holes behind by the turn. The Dundalk pairing did rally on the back nine by winning the tenth and 13th to reduce the deficit to one hole but then lost the 14th to birdie and the 15th to par to find themselves three behind again with just three holes to go. At this stage it was all about limiting the damage and hope that Rafferty and Murphy in the match behind could win by more than they lost. The youngsters dug deep to win the par five 18th where Mackin found the fairway, Lawlor drilled a two iron 260 yards to off the back of the green, Mackin chipped on to three feet and Lawlor sank the birdie putt. As that putt dropped, Murphy was pitching in to 10 feet on the 17th and when Woodbrook missed their birdie putt from 30 feet, Rafferty lagged his putt to the edge of the hole and Dundalk’s place in the afternoon final was secured. The other semi-final between The Island and Palmerstown House went to 19th hole, giving the Dundalk players some extra time to recover before the final. The managers made one change for the afternoon with the experienced Aaron Grant coming in for debutant Brendan Lawlor as Josh Mackin’s partner in the top match. “It was great to give Brendan his Barton Shield debut and let him get some very valuable playing time. His approach shot and putt on 18 were crucial to the win in the morning and being able to bring in a fresh and experienced Aaron Grant in the afternoon was a big boost,” said Conlon. After halving the first three holes of their match against Jonathon Quinn and Rhys Clarke, Grant and Mackin got their noses

in front by winning the fourth with a birdie. They extended their lead to two holes by winning the ninth with a birdie but then bogeyed the par three 13th to go back to one up. Behind them, things didn’t start so well as Rafferty and Murphy lost the first two holes to birdies by Fergal Kennedy and Jack Blake, but they won the third and brought the match back to all square on the seventh when Murphy holed a testy left to right breaking putt following a sublime chip by Rafferty from the back of the green. A superb tee shot from Rafferty on the par three 11th to six feet set up Murphy for a birdie that put the Dundalk pairing in front for the first time and they followed that up with birdies on the next two holes as Murphy drained putts from 20 and 15 feet respectively to go three up with five to play. The next three holes were halved and as the two Dundalk pairings went down the 17th they were lying four up overall with four to play. It all ended when Aaron Grant cooly sank a six foot putt to win the 17th in his match and seal a five hole victory for the defending champions. “The Club is extremely proud of our Senior Panel who have worked very hard over the last number of years to become Leinster champions,” said Dundalk Club Captain Pat Davis. “It was a massive breakthough last year to win our first senior pennant and reach the All-Ireland Final and to retain it is a tremendous achievement. I would like to congratulate the managers, the players, the caddies and our club professional Leslie Walker for a job well done
