THOMAS ASHE HALL FUNDRAISER: before the parish hall is closed for refurbishment on Monday March 4 the hall committee is staging a hilarious play entitled The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley by playwright Jimmy Kearey presented by the Acorn Players, well known in the Leitrim Cavan area. Your support will be appreciated. Tickets 10 euro are available from Micheal Carrigy and at the entrance door to the play. As you probably know Micheal Carrigy has obtained grant aid of 75% for the project. The parish has contributed 125000 euro. The hall committee hopes to make up the shortfall of some 750000 euro by fundraising, starting with this play. Your support will be much appreciated. Father Brian.

COMMUNITY ALERT: Re personal monitored alarms. The monitoring station Athlone has requested that personal alarm holders test their alarm on a regular basis (every 4 – 6 weeks) by pressing the alarm button. By doing this you are ensuring the little battery in the pendant is kept charged. Just press the button and when answered say that you are testing the system. Otherwise if pressed in an emergency your call may not register at the monitoring station and help will not then be contacted.
