Eily’s News – 19th October


On Tuesday night October 13th  the monthly meeting of the Community Council was held at the Wallis Arms. It was attended by the head of our local Garda forc , Sgt Paul Lynch, at the invitation of the Community Council with a view of setting a Community  Text Alert in the area. Seargant Paul gave a very interesting and detailed account of  the crime situation in this area, which covers from Rathmore to Macroom and all areas in between.

Two members of the meeting volunteered to help set up the scheme.  All those wishing to become members can ring the given numbers, leave their names and at a later date a meeting will be held.

Then everybody will get an opportunity to become a member. Community Text Alert is doing great work, where members are alerted to any suspicious happenings in there area.

Those interested in joining can contact 0872802529 or 087 2435855. Both are members of our Community Council and will be glad to help in any way.

Sgt Paul said that in time of need, or emergency, the best number to ring for help is 999,  as this number is always answered.

Before leaving the meeting Sgt Lynch drew the meeting’s attention to the annual West Cork Garda Youth Awards 2015, which is sponsored by Super Valu. Young Recipients will be awarded  in recognition of their outstanding achievements. So if you know of some young person whom you think is entitled to be recognised ,please give their details to Joe FitzGerald at our Super Valu Store. Awards will be presented at gala function which will be held at the Maritime Hotel in Bantry on Friday November27th at 7pm.
