Eily’s Report – 21st May

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

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.

Following a break last week our Bowls Club will resume again  at the Wallis Arms Hotel on tomorrow Wednesday from 10am to 1pm. Organised  jointly by the Active Retired Group and the Men’s Shed.  They invite everybody along but for Insurance reasons only those who are members of bowling clubs  can play. This problem can be overcome very easily by becoming a member. So do drop in and see if a game of Bowls is the hobby for you.

Six  little boys had it all to themselves in Cullen on Saturday.  There were just the six  of the them for First Holy Communion and we wish them God’s Blessings in the years ahead.
