Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a Chairde and welcome to my weekly report.
And welcome to our people from all over the world who love our Website and find it a wonderful link with home even though they live and work in faraway places. And when we meet them on a trip home as I did last week, it’s great to know that we really are all one through this modern medium.
The Month of May has dawned wet and cold, continuing the struggle that’s being made by farmers and indeed builders and all the people who are engaged in outdoor pursuits. We can only pray to God for an improvement. And to be conscious of the heavy burden that is on all those who are literally trying to keep their heads above water.
“We would like to thank everyone for coming to support the Tractor Run in aid of Mallow Search and Rescue on Sunday which raised an amazing €10,000 so far. 💸💰 It was a brilliant day which can be attributed to the beautiful weather and massive crowds that turned out to support this very worthy cause. ☀💪🏼 With over 230 tractors in attendance on the day it was bound to be a success. 🚜🚜 We would like to thank everyone involved in organising the event including Banteer Macra and members of the Kilcorney community. We want to thank everyone who helped on the day from stewarding, directing traffic to collecting money and selling raffle tickets. We would also like to thank everyone who sponsored prizes on the day and donated to the cause. Thanks very much to the staff of Moll Carthy’s Bridge for the hospitality and the lovely BBQ after the tractor run. 👏🏼👏🏼” – Ned Tarrant Memroial Tractor Run
