Down U14 Ladies County Team 
The U14 team played their final Ulster championship against Tyrone on Saturday. The result was disappointing with Tyrone getting a much better start to the game and maintaining that advantage throughout the match. Next Saturday the u14 panel travel to Portlaoise to take part in the All Ireland Blitz competition. This has always been a very enjoyable day and provides the opportunity to play against different Counties from outside of Ulster. The mentors would like to thank all the players, parents and clubs for their commitment and support this year at U14 level. 
Down U13 Ladies County Development Team 
Down U13 girls played their last Ulster league game against near neighbours Armagh in RGU Downpatrick on Saturday afternoon, in wonderful conditions. Down lost the toss and had to face a stiff breeze in the first half. The girls rushed into an early lead with well taken goals from Caroline Kennedy and Niamh King, before the visitors settled into the game picking off a few points with the wind at their backs. Jenna McMahon and Erin Byrne were having a real battle with their opposite numbers at mid-field with no quarter asked or given. This allowed Down to break forward on occasions to pick off three points and two further goals from the inside players of Caroline and Niamh. with the Orchard county securing two goals also before the break. Ciara McCullough, Anna Mulholland and Lily McKee in the half-forward line were proving a very effective link when going forward. However, the Down backs swept up a lot of ball with Enya Quinn acting as a very effective sweeper assisting our secure full back and captain today, Shauna O’Higgins and centre-half back Aoife Doyle both of whom were having a serious battle with their markers. Down went in at the break three points up leading 4-3 to 2-6. The second half started off in the same vein as the first with the game proving tight. Down scored a point first through Caroline before Armagh picked off another point and followed it up quickly with a well taken goal to level matters, after 12 minutes. At this stage, Nora Maguire in nets was keeping Down in it with a solid pair of hands and super kick-outs down the wings. The corner backs of Una Fearon and Sinead Scullion and wing half backs Ellen Shields and Caoimhe McKeown were working very hard at this stage to break up the Armagh attacks, with the support of Aoife and Shauna. After a sensible water break from the referee, the girls pushed on with further scores from Caroline and Niamh as a result of excellent balls being put in from our midfielders and half backs, with great support from our half forward line. Una Fearon was putting in a serious shift at this stage with some powerful solo runs down the wing and delivering some great balls to the forwards. The introduction of Caoimhe Quinn also helped to shut down any chance of a comeback by the visitors, as Down powered forward with the introduction of Eveagh Kelly and Aoibhin Dougan who freshened it up to stretch the Armagh defence further. The final goal for the Red and Blacks came from Anna Mulholland which was a great reward for her efforts today. Down ran out winners on a scoreline of 7-8 to 3-7, as a result of a late surge. This was a hard -working powerful performance today. The Mentors would also like to acknowledge the efforts all season of all the other girls on this excellent squad, who made valuable contributions in other games this year, namely Ellie Carr, Emily Fitzpatrick, Lauren Devlin, Ciara McEvoy Ireland, Neva Louden, Orlaith Lynch, Colleen McClean, Maeve Haigney, Rihanna Wojcieszak, Katie Convie, Rhian Boal, Sorcha McCullagh, Ellen McKay, Emily Magee, Aoife Trainor and the currently injured Rosie McCann. Best wishes Rosie!
Thank you to all the parents for their support and supply of refreshments when requested, and providing lifts to training and matches throughout the season. Thanks also to RGU Downpatrick for the use of their facilities today.
Big thanks also to our main sponsors Vanilla Restaurant and Strangford Fuels and all those who made sizeable financial contributions to support the girls. A fun day is planned for Saturday 20th May, with a possible friendly game still being looked at for next Saturday, if there is another County squad available to play.

Large crowds are expected to attend this year’s Balmoral Show and with an extra day planned, Police are urging motorists to take care and leave extra time for their journey. 

Lisburn and Castlereagh PSNI District Commander, Supt. Sean Wright said, “Of course, we are delighted to see the Balmoral Show back again this year. This is an excellent day out for everyone and I want everyone to enjoy a positive experience. 
“Please help us to help you by being patient and by driving and parking responsibly and with regard to other road users. I encourage everyone to use public transport wherever possible or park only in the designated locations if you have to bring a vehicle. 
“Public safety is of paramount importance to us so anyone parked illegally could get a fixed penalty notice for ignoring parking restrictions. These restrictions will be obvious so please do not ignore them.”
Rhonda Geary, operations director at the show, said, “We want people to come and enjoy the Show and to get here by the safest possible route.  We have worked hard along with our partners to improve the traffic management plan to facilitate the flow of traffic into and around the showground but, as with all large events, people should be prepared for potential delays.  Prepare your route beforehand, leave plenty of time for your journey and follow the directions of police.”  
Translink is asking visitors to plan their journeys in advance and leave extra time to make onward train connections. For more information, log onto for more information. 
If you are driving to the Show, leave extra time for your journey and follow directional signage to the Show grounds.

As countdown to the 149th Balmoral Show gets ever closer, the PSNI is making last minute preparations for the event which, this year, adds an extra day to the itinerary.  
The PSNI will occupy two stands this year, offering more advice on how to protect your farm, business, home, property and equipment. 
The PSNI liveried John Deere Gator utility vehicle (kindly loaned by Johnston Gilpin & Co Ltd of Lisburn) will be officially ‘unveiled’ at the event and will be situated in the Eikon complex, where Crime Prevention Officers (CPOs) will be on hand to provide guidance and advice on protecting against rural crime.  CPOs will also occupy another stand in its usual spot outside and will feature the Service’s liveried tractor (kindly loaned by Burke’s of Cornascriebe). 
Supt. Brian Kee said "Tackling crime against the rural community is important to police. We understand the effect these crimes have on communities and the grave impact they can have on farmers’ livelihoods.
“The Police Service is committed to reducing rural and agricultural crime. Our strategy is to work with partner agencies and commercial stakeholders to identify ways of preventing crime, as well as targeting and arresting those committing such offences.
“We are particularly pleased to be working as part of the Rural Crime Partnership to spread the message about crime prevention and reporting suspicious activity. The Rural Crime Partnership (RCP) aims to work together and bring forward recommendations and initiatives around preventing and combatting rural criminality. The Rural Crime Partnership members include representatives from the Department of Justice (DoJ), Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), the Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU), Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA), National Farmers’ Union Mutual Insurance (NFU Mutual), and the Young Farmers’ Club (YFC). 
“The farming industry is a very important part of our community, and we want to reassure them that we are doing all we can to prevent thefts. Thefts of farm machinery or livestock can not only hamper a farmer’s ability to do his job but can cause significant upset, inconvenience and loss of income. We understand this. We want to disrupt those who would target the rural community and help farmers to safeguard their properties and themselves.”
“John Deere is now fitting Datatag’s CESAR security marking system as standard on all XUV and HPX Gator utility vehicle models sold in the UK & Ireland, as a way of protecting against theft, recovering stolen equipment and reducing insurance premiums,” said Johnston Gilpin’s managing director  Randal McConnell. “We are very happy to support the PSNI in this way to help their efforts to prevent crime in the countryside.”
Mr. Harry Burke said, “We are pleased to be associated for the last numbers of years with the supply of the liveried tractor. I feel it has been an effective tool in raising awareness of rural crime, and what we can do to help prevent it.”
