Ballinagh notes



Corr: Eddie Brady


Residents of Forgebrook Drive, which is an area of Kilnaleck Road in Ballinagh, are very annoyed, as for the past two weeks, the area has been short of public street lighting. Now with the dark winter evenings, local families are experiencing the disadvantage as adequate street lighting is essential and provides the local community with a sense of serenity and safety. It is hoped that the problem will be pursued by the resident authority as a matter of urgency.


A major Boxing Tournament will take place in the Community Centre on Friday, November 27th with the first boxing tournament for 9pm. Proceeds are in aid of the Ballinagh Christmas Lights Fund and the public are asked to kindly show their support.
