St Joseph’s Rose

EVA TO BLOOM AS OUR CORK ROSE CONTESTANT.

For the first time in the history of the St Joseph’ s  Mayfield No Name Club, the local group entered a contestant in this year’s Cork Rose of Tralee contest.
Eva O’Gorman, who was born and bred in Mayfield, s the year’s official St Joseph’s No Name Club Rose.
Eva is a teacher in Scoil Mhuire Banrion in Mayfield , and was a member of the local club between 2002 & 2003. She is still in regular contact with club organisers.
Last week she met up with current members to speak to them about the impact the club has had in her life and also to drum up support for the Rose of Tralee festival.
“This is the first time the club has nominated someone for the competition and with the club celebrating its 30th anniversary last year, I’m delighted to promote it and get the No Name Club out there as a positive initiative for young people,”  Eva said.
Eva was a prominent member of the club when the when Cork hosted the national Youth Awards final in the Silver Springs Moran Hotel a few years ago.
St Joseph’s Mayfield No Name Club secretary Joe Mullane said all there were thrilled to have a Rose representing the local branch of such a prominent organisation.
“Eva would have plenty of practice as in the No Name Club we have hosts and hostesses and our club awards are black tie affairs.
“This is really breaking new ground for us and we are very proud of Eva” he said.
Based at the St Josephs Community centre, the voluntary organisation was founded in Mayfield in 1998 to provide an alternative to the pub culture for young people in the area.
The club helps young people to build self esteem and self belief.
Since the club was founded it has made a major contribution to the quality of life of hundreds of young people and their families in the Mayfield Community.
Throughout the club’s 10 year history it has received a number of awards, including the No Name Club of the Year Award in the Community Impact Category in 2002.
It also collected the Cork Lord Mayor’s Community and Voluntary Award in the Children and youth Category in 2004.
The club is aimed at 15 – 19 year olds. For details contact Joe Mullane (021) 4550059.
