Due to the ever increasing numbers and uncertainty of future developments, it is the safest thing to do for our members and our audiences. Hopefully, we might be able to resume in the Autumn. Follow the guidelines to keep yourself and your families safe.
On behalf of Trócaire, sincere thanks to all who contributed to the sale of Christmas Gift cards on Saturday 18th Dec in both Granagh and Ballingarry. Renewed thanks to both shops - O'Gormans & O'Gradys - for allowing me to set-up in their car parks. Total amount received and lodged was €1,739.85 which was extraordinarily generous. Thanks also to Katherine for dropping me a bag of used stamps.
I best not forget to send congratulations to Cian O'Regan on his engagement to Louise Moloney, on Saturday last. Wishing you both every happiness and the best of luck with all your future plans.
