    Great News for Liscarroll with the opening of Castle View Store to go along with our Post Office. Best of luck to Ted and Joan on their new venture. This is a fantastic service to have in our small village so please support.

  • Community Planning - Ballyhoura Development

    The Liscarroll Community Planning has been facilitated by Paul O’Raw & Associates through Ballyhoura Development CLG and supported by the LEADER Rural Development Programme. Liscarroll Community Council has organised and advised the process locally in the community.

    The aim of the process was to support the community to identify local needs and issues at the heart of Liscarroll so that these could be addressed through future actions and forward planning to make sure that these needs can be adequately met. The plan aims to guide the work of local clubs and organisations, as well as state agencies, local authorities and other stakeholders, while also provide a reference point for the community.

    The Community Plan is now available for download at CLICK HERE.

    The sieges of Liscarroll and the important battle which took place there on the 3rd September, 1642, have been described more than once, the accounts being based upon contemporary records but telling of less than nothing a structure which must have been erected more than 300 years before. it is hardly to be expected, indeed, that the seventeenth century observers of the conflict would know much about the ancient building but it is remarkable that earlier references are lacking or have not yet come to light.

Liscarroll Handball Club

Liscarroll Handball Club was founded in 1850 over a hundred and sixty six years ago.  Liscarroll Handball Club is also one of the best know Handball Clubs in Ireland and has consistently brought ‘honour and glory to the little village’ with victories at All Ireland and World level. Each year a major Munster Open Juvenile Tournament for boys and girls takes place after Christmas which draws large crowds to the village. The Club building was last upgraded in the 1980s and now needs a major refurbishment most especially dedicated facilities for women players. The following initiatives are planned:

◆ New Timber Floor to Alley;

◆ New Dressing rooms / Male and Female;

◆ New Public Toilets;

◆ New Exercise / Meeting Room;

◆ New Heating and Ventilation system;

◆ New Tiered Viewing Area;

◆ New Public Entrance and corridor accessible from the street;

◆ Internal redecoration;

◆ Painting externally.

The cost of these improvements are estimated at €50,000 which will be funded by the proceeds of the 500 Club promotion and a capital grant from the Department of Sports. In order to apply for the sports capital grant the Club must have raised its own funding which is why we are promoting the 500 Club now. By joining our 500 Club you can help give North Cork another sports facility in which we can all take pride. ***Draw date is set for the 8th December 2017 (note correction to date on brochure)***

Liscarroll Handball Club was founded over a hundred years ago and in 1987 the alley was completely renovated. At that time the old 60 x 30 alley was demolished and a new enclosed 40 x 20 alley with changing rooms and showers was built. 

Club members have had great success over the years up to and including winning world handball titles. In 1934 Liscarroll born Michael Fitzgibbon won a world title in New York. Sixty years later in 1994 Pat O'Brien and Joe Collins won the Golden Masters B Doubles in O'Callaghan Mills, Co Clare and in 2006 John Hedigan and Pat Flaherty won the World Masters B Doubles in Canada. The Club also won the 2007 All Ireland Junior B Club Championship the Millennium Club of the Year Award in 2000. Club members have won numerous All Ireland, Munster and County titles at all grades including: Jimmy Hurley and Tim Twohill in 1938, Pat O'Brien and Tim Healy 1997. Shane Hedigan has already won three all Irelands and he is only 17 years of age. Shane will be competing in another All Ireland Junior B Final in November 2007.

Twenty years after the last major restoration of 1987 the Club is embarking on a further redevelopment to bring the facilities up to International standard so that the Club will have an opportunity to offer its facilities for the 2012 World Handball Championships which will be held in Ireland. The development is being phased and the first phase including the construction of a glass back wall and seating for 50 people is already completed. The current phase involves upgrading the playing surfaced by installing a maple floor and heating. The Club requires substantial funding to complete phase 2 and will be looking for grant aid and other support. A number of fundraising initiatives will be launched over the course of 2008 to include a sponsored walk and handball tournaments. A major juvenile tournament will take place over a week starting on 27th December 2007. This year the Club expects a number of All Ireland medallists to be competing.

Well known Club member, Willie Relihan is also helping the fundraising by donating 100 copies of his very popular CD "My Hometown" to the Club. Club members will be selling the CD locally for €20 per copy. The CD will make an ideal Christmas present for home and abroad. Copies of the fundraising CD are available from Club Members, Margaret O'Brien's bar and Donal Ó Cainte's shop

The alley was originally donated by the O'Brien family to the community back in 1984 and Liscarroll Handball Club is grateful for the support of the local Community Council who own the premises and lease it to the Club.
