Major Campaign to stop Gorey Gárda Station being downgraded

This is a single focus group – their only purpose is to stop the station being downgraded and already the committee has compiled some very interesting and disturbing statistics, which are attached to this post.

Christmas Social tonight

Tonight’s Christmas Social in the Schoolhouse Bar in Askamore is hosted jointly by Askamore Community Education (ACE) who run the Tuesday night talks, and by Askamore Community Alert.

Everyone is welcome to come, and the specially invited guests are the older members of our community, some of whose stories have been taped in the past few months as part of the Askamore Memories folklore recording project.

These stories will form the basis of a presentation tonight. There will also be music, food, and bingo!

Come along and enjoy a social community event in good company – 8pm.
