Active Retirement - The Mid Region Development and Outreach teams are currently organising cluster meetings for the area and hope to have all regions covered shortly.
A.R.A. groups are asked to take notice and give support. Meanwhile there is a ‘Gathering’ event at Bunratty Castle on June 12th this year. For full info. contact the Secretary, Margaret Guilfoyle at Carrig, Birr, Co. Offaly, phone (05791) 25532 or (087) 7691011.
Reminder - Time is running out to book in with Our Lady’s Sodality on their annual Pilgrimage to Knock on 28th and 29th May, ring 71367, 71448 or 76191, few seats remaining.
Tidy Towns - There was a good response to the launch of the Clean-up for the annual Tidy Towns competition in the Dundrum area. However we can’t rest on our laurels and the effort must go on, hopefully with success this year. Needless to say all are welcome.
Heart Foundation - This is Happy Hearts Appeal month (May) and collections with appeals will be held throughout. Doubtless good support will be given but in case you need reminding this is it. Please be as generous as you can to the many events and collections which will present themselves. We’ll never know who we might have helped.
