Aubane Social Club Christmas Diary

Aubane Christmas Day Morning Climb at 10.30 am on Monday 25 December – all proceeds from the Climb are in Aid of the Freeland Projects in Capetown. Local woman Maureen Buckley will travel to Capetown in March 2024. This is Maureen’s second visit and the money donated will go a long way in the building of a rescue centre. She saw first hand the poverty and lack of resources and provisions when Maureen was there in 2022. The team included plumbers, carpenters, painters and many more. They filled their suitcases with all the necessary equipment to carry out the work and left everything there when they returned home. We have so much and they have so little so everything is a huge help. Please Support this very worthy charity.

Christmas Around the Fireside a night of stories, songs and togetherness at Christmas around the open fireside in candle light at Aubane Community Centre happening Thursday 28 December at 8.00 pm All welcome.

ALPACA EXPERIENCES IN BEAUTIFUL NORTH CORK

Fineoaks Alpacas offers a variety of experiences involving our beautiful, friendly and charismatic alpacas, including, but not limited to:

Well Being Visits:
For those of us experiencing stress or anxiety in our daily lives, or just looking for some peace and tranquility, why not come out into the countryside and escape into nature with a well-being visit to our farm? Get away from every day life and spend some time surrounded by beautiful scenery and an array of inquisitive, calming animals.

School Visits:
We welcome school groups to come and visit and learn about our alpacas. You will have the opportunity to get up close to them and to feed them with their favourite, specialist alpaca feed. The visit includes an information session, an opportunity to meet and feed the alpacas and then, the ever-popular quiz. School children will go home with a small memento from the day and some alpaca related information.

Alpaca your Picnic:
The chance to sit back, relax, bring your own picnic and enjoy being out in the field with some lovely friendly alpacas for company.
** Picnics are only available during the summer months, running from early May.

Alpacas at Events:
Whether you are hosting a Communion party, a Birthday party, an Engagement, a Wedding, or anything else you can think of, alpacas are the ideal, original guests to have along. Each event is catered for slightly differently, depending upon the event.

Photo shoots:
If you are thinking about creating some lasting memories, or planning a family photoshoot, why not have some alpacas along, or come to us for that? We want to be able to share the special, unique and wonderful experience we have with our alpacas on a day-to-day basis and help others create unique and lasting memories too.
For more information and pricing on any of the above experiences, please get in touch.
Please note that all experiences are priced differently and must be booked and paid for in advance.

Message of Thanks and Further Information from Mushera Wind Aware Group

Mushera Wind Aware.
On Saturday February 26th. we gave people the opportunity to sign a petition against a wind farm in Ballinagree/ Mushera Mountain. We would like to thank everyone who turned out to support us and everyone who helped in any way. We will not name names because  we would definitely leave somebody out but we are greatful for all the support.

We were also delighted to welcome Liadh Ni Riada, Sinn Fein candidate for Cork North West who came from Coolea to assure us of her continuing support.

We know that many people were not able to make it to sign the petition on Saturday so with that in mind, they can text their name and address to any one of the following numbers and we will add them to the petition.

087 412 6175

087 640 3530

or
086 062 1269

A lot of people asked about a public meeting and why we haven’t held one. The fact is that we are afraid to in case we would be the cause of an outbreak of Covid. This restricts us very much because we know that many of you want to get involved and help fight this proposed development. We are doing the best we can by making opportunity available to sign the petition.

Again thanks to everyone.
