A well deserved award
A big congrats to St Maeve Brady who was honoured recently for her great community work when she received the Benemerenti medal at a ceremony in St Mary’s Church, Granard. St Maeve, was instrumental in the setting up of the Dolmen Club here in Colmcille, which plays an invaluable role in the lives of the older people in our community and this is a richly deserved award indeed.
