With thanks to an amenity grant received from Wexford County Council, yesterday new concrete was poured out the back of the hall which tidied up the back area and creates a new, safe, outdoor area for the marquee tent etc.
This could not have been done without the help of all the volunteers who gave up their time on numerous weekends to help prepare and complete this job.
Many Thanks to Peter Cooper, Adam English, Ger Blackbyrne, Sean Byrne, Padraig O Connor, Davy Donohoe, Paddy Byrne, Mick O Neill, Jason Kehoe, Seamus Kehoe, Stacy Gilbert & Ann Potignano.

Irish Rural Link Urge Older People to Keep Safe and Warm during the Cold Weather Conditions
Irish Rural Link – the national network representing the interest of rural communities is urging older people to keep safe and keep warm during the cold weather over the next few days.
With snow in some parts of the country and freezing conditions expected to last for the coming days, we are urging older people to keep warm and avoid going out if at all possible. Very often older people don’t leave heat on or keep fires going but they should keep house extra warm during this time and wear extra layers.
We ask that people that they call in on elderly neighbours to ensure they have enough fuel and food and not presume someone else is calling in on them.
We also urge older people to contact neighbours if they do need help with anything and not be afraid to ask and if they have a personal alarm to check it is working and have it on their person at all times.
People need to be extra mindful of older neighbours living on their own at this time.
