ALL-IRELAND WEEKEND; GOOD LUCK TO THE LIMERICK TEAM & MENTORS.
Friday 20th Aug: 12pm - 3pm. Family Fun Day - getting to know the Glasha river.
Reminding all local families to give a call to see the Maigue Rivers Trust display which will be set up outside the school. All our rivers are precious resources and need to be looked after. Joining representatives of the Trust on the day, will be members of the Inland Fisheries and Teagasc's ASSAP advisor, Padraig Fitzgerald. For the children there will be a nature walk, nature drawing and trays of the different river animals on display. Meanwhile the parents can ask questions and hear suggestions on how to protect this wonderful habitat. This will be a very enjoyable and informative event.
Our sympathies to the family and relatives of Paul Lynch, Cappanahane and Ballyagran, who passed away on Monday 9th.
Sadly missed by his wife Lisa (née Fitzgerald), mother Bernie, brother Christopher, uncles, aunts, nephew, niece, in-laws, cousins and a large circle of friends.
Requiem Mass was celebrated in St. Michael's Church Ballyagran on Thursday August 12th, with burial afterwards in Colmanswell Cemetery.
We send our congratulations to Sharon Chawke and partner Dean Clancy on the arrival of their first child, a baby girl named Fiadh.
Also, Kaylee Stapleton and partner Jason O'Hara on the arrival of their second baby, Éabha, a little sister for Bella.
