Text Alert

Carrigallen Community Text Alert Scheme is now in its third year and has proven very beneficial in the prevention of crime in this area. It is important that we keep our level of vigilance as high as possible as we enter the dark days of winter. Membership is now due for renewal and renewal envelopes can be got in the local shops in Carrigallen and Newtowngore. Membership remains the same as the last two years at €5. Anyone who has paid membership and are not receiving text messages can contact Neville Patterson on 087 9282098 or Martina McCann at McCann’s Centra Supermarket to have the problem resolved.
