Molumby Worth Watching

Following some stellar performances for Ireland in the famous Toulon tournament over the summer, Cappoquin’s Jayson Molumby shone yet again last week as captain and playmaker for the Ireland Under 21 soccer team against Armenia. One journalist wrote of the game:

‘Molumby is on a different level. Molumby has a bite in the tackle which is replicated by many other midfielders and his range of passing is a joy to behold. However, it’s his sheer energy which is the most striking aspect of the Brighton man’s game, consistently going beyond the ball in order to get Ireland up the pitch. Molumby took the bull by the horns against Armenia, subsequently dominating the game.’

Jayson started his career with Railway Athletic in the Dane’s Field. He is currently on loan at Milwall FC, former club of other Irish soccer luminaries like Tony Cascarino and Eamonn Dunphy. His aim is to get a string of first team games under his belt, and he will undoubtedly be back at Brighton before too long, still on course to become the first local player to play in the Premier League, hopefully this season. He will certainly be the only current player in the English leagues with a Waterford Under 16 county hurling medal. Best of luck to him.

Australian Connections

In late September, Cappoquin anticipates a visit from a small group from the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club near Perth, Western Australia. We have mentioned the connection previously, namely that in 1896, Cappoquin man Edward Keane, along with some local friends agreed to form a sailing club and build a jetty for their boats in Freshwater Bay. Today, at the appropriately named Keane Point, this yacht club is one of the most famous in Australia and is housed in the home originally built there by Edward Keane. He called that home ‘Cappoquin House’ and the name is still proudly displayed at the club. The same Edward Keane also built the Anglican cathedral in Perth, incidentally.

This year, the yacht club CEO and some members will be in Ireland for a major yachting celebration in Cork and will be the guests of Cappoquin Heritage Group on September 24 for the afternoon. We have arranged to bring them to the original Cappoquin House, see some of the other sights in and around Cappoquin and Cappoquin Rowing Club will host a small presentation event at the Boathouse later in the day.
We haven’t got final times as yet but hope to have more details next week and will use social media in case anyone is interested in meeting the visitors at the Rowing club. Cappoquin has had many links with Australia over the years, and this should be a pleasant opportunity to build on some of those links.
