Bishop John Buckley, Bishop of Cork and Ross, said that the competition has brought great joy and happiness to the communities here in Cork City and County. 

"It has been said that a community is a group of people wherein everyone is active and interested and wherein every activity one tries to promote the participation of everybody. That is what the Over 60’s Competition has been doing over a long number of years. I know how much communities look forward to the various events."
