There was a great attendance at the Community Council meeting on Tuesday night. The extension and refurbishment of our Youth Complex came up for discussion but as there was no reply from the Architect there was no new development.
A sub-committee has been formed by the council to take over the staging of a family Fun Day at the end of July, and some funding was allotted to them to help get the project off the ground.
Our Tidy Towns Committee are looking for your help right now as the planting season is in full swing. Contact Noreen Dennehy and Patricia Randals on 087 617 67 22 if you are available to help. Both men and women are needed. So please give them a ring and be ready to get stuck in and don’t leave it all to Girl Power. They have added some permanent planting to their program which will improve or simplify their work in future.

Pictured yesterday at Kippagh is a Large Flowered Butterworth, currently in bloom in the hills around Millstreet. It is a native of the upland acid bogs of Cork and Kerry. While it has beautiful flowers, the leaves below are carnivorous!! Insects walk or fly onto the leaves, which roll at their edges to prevent escape – an unlikely occurrence – since butterworts possess the strongest natural glues known. These leaves exude enzymes which digest certain parts of the insect’s body, the plant absorbing essential nourishment. After digestion the dry insect husk blows away. Butterworts overwinter as rootless resting buds. (You can see the insects on the leaves above 💀)  [read more …] “The Large Flowered Butterworth”

Having learned to dance at the age of four and mastered many a musical instrument, her big break came when she was asked to join the Irish dance troupe – Rhythm of the Dance’ [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” C103 This Sunday at 7″
