A delegation visited from Vihtijärvi in Finland as part of an International Leader project. The small village an hour or so from Helsinki has a population of 400 and many of the residents commute to work outside of the village. The three person delegation spent a couple of days touring West Cork and was delighted to have the opportunity to visit Goleen. Goleen was recommended due to the Goleen and District Community Council’s growing reputation for community work. It is hoped that a delegation from Goleen will undertake a fact finding visit to Vihtijärvi in the near future.

Last week was a hectic week for the Goleen & District Community Council. With less than a week’s notice confirming date and time of the Minister’s visit the Community Council set about inviting people by this newsletter to all in the community, by text, phone calls, written or verbal. Whatever way the Community got the invitation, you responded in huge numbers and a truly warm West Cork welcome was given to Minister Joan Burton on her visit to Goleen last Friday to open the new Goleen Community Centre Extension. Full editorial in this weeks newsletter.

Irish TeamPot of Gold For Goleen Pair
Ireland claimed a GOLDEN double in the 7 Nations Primary School International in Scotland Saturday the 14th April 2012. Both the Boys and Girls Irish Team win gold in the Team Event. It is History making and the Goleen Table Tennis Coaching Scheme players James Kelly and Kerry O’Mahoney are proud to be part of that.

It is a Fantastic achievement for the youngsters and everyone in Goleen is proud of their achievement and at such a young age it is fantastic. To represent your Country at any level is a tremendous achievement and to Win Gold Medals is such an honour for them and it is an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

James Kelly is sponsored by Joola, Celtic Table Tennis and the Goleen and District Community Council. He would like to thank his Sponsors for believing in him. And for supporting him in his chosen sport.
