Big Changes - Laois Co. Council have purchased all the old buildings of the workhouse which were in later years the huge shop and stores of the old Co.Op. It was a really busy place with a huge staff, doing all kinds of everything. The County Council are going to reconstruct this old building and have council offices there. The church which belonged to the workhouse is to be restored. We look forward to great changes in Donaghmore.
Road Works - At the approach road to Killadooley the bridge is under repair. The road is completely closed off so no traffic is allowed to go through. This will be the way for the next week, apologies are offered for the inconvenience but the bridge had to be reconstructed as it was very dangerous and unsafe.
Billiards - The Joseph Thompson Memorial Billiards Tournament will be starting in the near future and the draws and handicaps will be made soon. Any billiard players who would like to take part in this competition should contact the Club Secretary as soon as possible. Call Joe Dooley on (086) 8421598.
