Well done to all who took part and all who helped out and especially to the members of the Apostolic Society who provided refreshments. Proceeds go towards Bothar and the foreign missions through the local Apostolic Society.

Is extended to the members of the Heaslip family, Killynanum, Carrickaboy on the recent deaths of both their parents, Mrs Olive Heaslip who had been a carer for her ill husband Ben, died suddenly a few weeks ago and just last week, her husband who had been terminally ill passed away peacefully. These deaths have come as a great shock to this closely knit family and their extended family members and may they be consoled knowing that both have gone to their eternal reward together. May they rest in peace.
As the sun continues to shine and the countryside is in full bloom country folk are amazed at the continued fine weather which has brought an abundance of fodder, turf, fruit and vegetables not to mention the feel-good factor. May we not take this for granted but thank God for it all.
The Irish Water application forms have been received by most households and should be returned completed by 31st October at the latest. Meanwhile, the great water debate goes on and locals on group water schemes who are already being monitored are glad to know that they will not be billed on the double but need to return the forms so that there will be no duplication. However, one wonders how long these schemes will be allowed to stand alone.
