TABLE QUIZ: A table quiz will take place in Magans pub this Friday 28th September at 8.30pm to raise funds for our ongoing effots to make improvements in the village. Table of four costs 40 euro.
While all the hard work this year was only rewarded with a modest increase in points,adjudication occurred at the very beginning of June - before a lot of the work done this year was completd. Nevertheless the judges had many very positive things to say about the work that has been done to date as well as making suggestions about work that could be done in the future. People passing through neighbouring areas have also noted the work done in the village. All of this work requires effort and money so please come along this Friday Night to show your support. See you there.
