The annual general meeting of Kenagh and District Development Association will be held in Saint Dominic’s Centre on this Wednesday night March 11th at 8.30pm. As the entry for the tidy towns competition is now imminent it is very important that there is a good attendance present. The proposed walkway and cycle route on the canal banks and other items leading to the improvement of the area will be discussed. All interested please take note especially residents from the village area.

Cottage demise

The heavy snowfalls over the past week appear to have been largely responsible for the final collapse of the roof of the thatched cottage in the middle of the village. This cottage was once the show piece of Kenagh and is probably the oldest building having survived from prior to the rebuilding of the village about 1840. Incidentally, the residence is still under a preservation order as it is a listed building and it appears it will remain so for some time to come. In the meantime it will continue to be an eye sore which is of no benefit to the tidy towns effort.

Community Centre AGM

The AGM of Saint Dominic’s Community Centre was held last Monday night March 2nd. The meeting was postponed from a week earlier for want of support. The postponement made very little difference as there was no increase in the numbers present. The entire outgoing committee were re-elected in block with no new takers for any positions. Unfortunately, the burden of looking after and administering the business of the building will fall on the shoulders of a very small but dedicated few who took on the responsibility of keeping it running for the next twelve months. It is still not too late for any newcomer to join the committee and help to keep this very important facility in running order. The younger members of the community should get involved as it is mostly for their benefit in the first place.
