Service of thanksgiving

A special service of thanksgiving for the life of the late Mrs Jane Kenny takes place in Ballinagh Mission Church on Sunday, November 9th at 8pm. Preacher Mr PJ Sexton and everyone is very welcome.

Weather

Torrential rain over the weekend caused widespread flooding over the district, especially in low lying areas and many cattle owners have now housed their animals for the duration of the months of winter.

Safety

Now that the dark evenings of winter have arrived pedestrians are advised for their own personal safety when walking on roads or lanes during the twilight or hours of darkness to wear an arm band or clothing which makes their presence visible to other road users while motorists are asked to kindly dip their lights in the face of oncoming traffic.
