Village Looking Better - Parishioners coming into the village have noticed the facelifts that many properties have received recently.
As part of the Tidy Towns 2013 effort many of the derelict properties in the village have been tidied up and painted. Our thanks to the Tidy Towns Committee, who have guided the effort. The approach roads into the village have also been tidied up and are looking much nicer now that grass is beginning to green up. A small number of people have put in a lot of effort, so it is up to the rest of us to lend a helping hand. One way we can do this is to keep an eye on litter control and not allow litter louts to go scot free. Well done to the local primary school and the G.A.A. grounds beside the school for the effort put in.
Community Games - Alex Maher, Cathal Brett and Daniel Vaughan were all taking part in the Community Games Art and Model making National Finals in Athlone last weekend. Well done lads on getting so far.
A Welcome Sight - Work on the Fethard line water supply is starting to-day Monday, May 27th. For 50 years since its start in the early 1960’s local people have looked forward to this service being upgraded. In recent years water or rather the lack of it has been a very hot topic. Now, at last with the arrival of pipes, men and machinery we are convinced that the scheme is definitely about to be upgraded. No one can be more pleased than local Independent Councillor Eddie O’Meara who has fought tooth and nail for this scheme since he was first elected to the County Council in 1999.
A Note - A note from John Bolger in London. He managed to hear the cuckoo while out walking recently. That is more than many of us country people have managed to do.
G.A.A. News - Well done to our Senior hurlers who reached the semi-finals of the South Tipp. S.H. Championship on Saturday night last by defeating Carrick Davins. They now join Ballingarry, Carrick Swan and Killenaule in the last four. A very interesting call to arms to members of the G.A.A. club from the Nationalist of January 19th, 1929 in our local newsletter this weekend.
