Community Council

At a recent Community Council meeting, Sheila Foley, Chairperson and Mick Larkin, Treasurer announced their retirements. We pay tribute to both Sheila and Mick for their may hyears of service to the Community Council and their contributions to the community in many other areas. Our Community Council will hold an open meeting on Thursday May 15th at 8pm in the Community Centre. We urge each club, society and group to have a representative present. We also invite individuals who have an intention of becoming involved in the Community Council to attend. Our Community Council supports many groups in the area and is essential for the progression of our community. Mary Guiry (Secretary)

Local Elections

The race is definitely on in the 2014 local elections. The last week saw an outbreak of posters going up in the village. Our own Eddie O’Meara is contesting the election again as an Independent candidate. He has represented our community very well since he was first elected in 1999. It is only fair to say that many of the good things which has happened in our area since would not have happened without the help of Councillor O’Meara. As an Independent, Eddie has had no political party to depend on, but in spite of this ,he has done well for us all.
