Our Easter ceremonies in St. Michael’s Church were well attended during the week. Great credit is due to Fr. McGrath and to all those who arranged or helped with the ceremonies. There will be no morning Mass in St. Michaels this week, but Adoration will take place on Thursday from 11am to 9pm. All are welcome. .
It is good to see the streets of the village being repaired after they were cut up during the installation of the new water mains which seem to be working well. Hopefully, now and in the future, our water supply will be free of breaks and be of good quality. The installation of this supply which replaces a system 50/60 years old is great progress. It comes as a result of almost 20 years of hard work at council level in seeking such improvements. It should be noted that the roadway and street improvements in Chapel/Kickham Street are an addition to the waterworks and not part of that scheme. This work will begin in the next few weeks with Carrick Street to follow at a later date. For further details contact Eddie O’Meara. .
