FARMERS’ MARKET - Having seen the Nationwide Programme on RT E 1 last week and so much talk about Country & Farmers Markets on Radio & T.V recently maybe it might encourage you to come along to our market in Streete parish park Complex each Saturday 10a.m. to 12 noon. A word of advice is to come early before certain products are sold out.

BOHERQUILL RAMBLERS

The Ramblers held their AGM in the Corn Mill pub in Boherquill on last Sunday, March 6th, after a short walk around Boherquill and Correally. Tea and sandwiches in the comfortable surroundings of the pub preceded the meeting which was opened by Club Chairman Brian Nerney who relayed apologies from some absent members and then called on Club Secretary Patricia Bruton to read the minutes from last year’s AGM. Patricia then read out her report on the year’s activities including highlights such as the annual Walking Festival and the traditional trip to County Down around St. Patrick’s Day. Brian Nerney delivered his Chairman’s address describing another successful year for the Club with membership increasing and the Club becoming well recognised by organisations within the County and beyond. The election of Club Officers was next on the agenda resulting in Brian Nerney being returned as Club Chairman with Paddy Croghan as Vice-Chairman and Walks Organiser. Patricia Bruton was re-elected as Club Secretary with Frank Higgins as Assistant Secretary. Maura McLoughlin and Alice Nerney were re-appointed as joint Club Treasurers and Philip Epps as Club PRO.

Dates for this year’s Walking Festival were announced as the weekend of the 7th and 8th of May, with a proposed walk on Friday evening in Tullynally, on Saturday beside Lough Derravaragh, and around Fore on Sunday, always a very popular walk.
