Preserving the history of our ancient Graveyards?

This Project continues next week on 3, 4 & 5th April. This is a very worthwhile project and has been successfully done in many communities throughout Ireland. We are fortunate to have secured Funding from Westmeath Community Development to carry out this Project. We appeal for more people from the parish to take part in this team project - please contact Tom Conlon, Jill Stanley, Kieran Sheerin or Ben Lynn for details.

Sympathy

We extend our deepest sympathy to Ann Burford, (Noughaval) on the death of her husband, Brian, RIP.

Tang Tidy Towns

If you would like to join our Committee or help out in any way please contact Michael Conlon, Jill Stanley or Ger Curran. Tidy Towns have various projects to carry out over the coming months and we appeal for new members to come on board.

Thanks for donations

As part of our landscaping project, we are proposing to plant native trees over the coming months. We recently suggested that perhaps people in the parish might like to make a donation for a tree maybe in memory of a loved one or even a donation towards new shrub beds. We would like to thank all who made donations and hope you enjoy watching your tree grow with a sense of pride. We will be planting many trees and bedding during the next few months and if anyone would like to make a donation or special request we would be delighted to hear from you. You can contact Michael Conlon, Jill Stanley or Ger Curran at any time.
