Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this pleasant Tuesday morning.

‘The Forgotten Maggies’ attracted full houses on Friday Saturday and Sunday at the Glen Theatre. Full marks to Stephen O’Reardon and his team for bringing the story of these deprived women , to the notice of the whole world, lest we forget. On Sunday the audience gave a standing ovation to all concerned. And now Steve’s phone doesn’t stop ringing. His story has captured the attention of many people, not just in Ireland, but also the mighty New York Film Academy. Following showings around this country,  he will be heading for that location, at the end of September and we wish him every success with this brilliant  documentary, which took him three years to complete, on a shoe string budget.

A sum of money was found outside the Wallis Arms Hotel  at the weekend. Can be claimed by giving details to 029 56406. or ring me at 086 3163285 and I will put you in touch.

Thanks to the power of local radio, the stray dog that was mentioned last week was located and returned home in a matter of hours.

A listener is taking a chance with this one. Having done some renovations in the bathroom she now needs about a dozen tiles 6X9 inches, to repair the little damage that was done. They’re about 15yrs old. Colour, creamy/white background with an all over hint of green. If you can help ring 087 6739878 after 6.

Our lovely Country Park is open every day from 10 until 7, and is improving all the time. The latest addition being the spectacular Waterfalls.

Book of poems entitled Eoghan Rua O’Suilleabhan, ‘ DANTA’,which was launched at the Malton Hotel last Friday night, is on sale at Wordsworth @ €20.

In the near future a book of poems by Cullen’s Roger Casey will also be launched. Roger is an inspiration to us all , He fought his way back from almost total blindness following an operation to remove a tumour in the brain in 1991 to  use his limited ability to live a full life in his community and among other things , to write a book of poems. Watch out for his launch in the not too distant future.
