All new members welcome.
Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
This week we welcome the repair work done by the County Council at the West End of the town. The crossing at the Church and car park have all been treated to a brand new surface . And what a difference it has made. So smooth and so safe now, we have to say a very sincere word of thanks to our County Council and to anybody who brought this welcome development to fruition.
The dark evenings have crept up on us with the change of time at the weekend. And the touch of frost put manners on our lovely begonias and dahlias, sending them back to bed until the Spring. I had waited with bated breath for my late flowering Crimson Dahlia to give me a blast of late season colour and it strutted its stuff but for one night only before Jack Frost applied his wily ways. Aaah.
