Eily’s Report – 9th April

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome, on this beautiful crisp Spring day, giving us all the chance to go about the things we want to do including the birds to build their nests.


The monthly meeting of the Community Council will be held at the Wallis Arms Hotel tonight starting at 8 o’clock sharp. All members please attend.


A very successful Coffee fundraiser in aid of many needy causes was held at our Garda Barracks last week. It was very well attended and there was a real friendly atmosphere as members welcomed all  those who came between 10.30 am to 2.30 pm in the afternoon to support it. This has become an annual event by now and is helping good causes as well. It creates a great bond between the Gardai members and the general public.


A highly successful equestrian event entitled the International Welcome Tour, has just finished it’s five day stint at the Green Glens and there’s lots more to look forward to in the months ahead. So keep in touch with their website and don’t miss the exciting events on this world stage on our doorstep.
