TIDY TOWNS The Tidy Towns committee are very proud and happy to have a crib and a Christmas tree in the village square and wish to express their gratitude to those who made it possible:
Cllr. Mark Casey, Brid Lowry, Mattie Flynn, the Shanley family, Lanesboro Community College, Fr. Nigel Charles, Martina Chapman, all the children who sang carols, the Magan family and Padraig Casey. The committee also want to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.
The good news is that all those who gave their insurance are now connected up to the ambulance service. A special word of thanks to Michael Jameson who made the covers.
The local lotto draw was held last week. Numbers drawn were: 6, 14, 16 & 19. There was no jackpot winner. €40 winner was Thomas Brady. 20 euro each went to Ambrose Murtagh, Denis Skelly and Michael Bennett. The next draw will be held on Sunday next, 19th December in the Chestnut Tree, Killashee for a jackpot of 13,320euro and the usual Christmas draw. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
Deepest sympathy is extended to the Mullooly Family, Lehery, on the death of paddy whose funeral took place earlier this week. Paddy worked for many years with Bord Na Mona and he will be fondly remembered by his many work colleagues. He will be sadly missed by his daughters, Margaret and Brigid (Flood) and sons, Padraig, Michael and Louis and his grandchildren, relatives and many friends. May his soul Rest in Peace.
