Emo Art & Craft Fair will be held on Sunday, December 15 in the Community Centre from 11am to 5pm. We are packed to the rafters with beautiful gifts for all year round and to suit all the family. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and finish off with a walk in the park. There is free parking and entry. With a raffle on the day in support of St Vincent de Paul.
COMMUNITY FORUM AWARDS
Mary Miller, Vicarstown was nominated for a unsung hero award at the Laois Community Forum awards night on Wednesday last. She was unlucky to lose out to Ger Lynch, Mountmellick. Mary has been involved with the community in Vicarstown over a long number of years, being involved in the old youth club for over 25 years, held all positions on Fianna Fail cumann, all positions on the ICA, active retirement group, you could say the only thing Mary did not do was say mass as she done everything else in the church, flowers on the alter, coached the choir, eucharistic minister etc. A good number of supporters attended on the awards night to cheer on Mary. She received a certificate on the night to recognise her contributions to the area over a long number of years. Well done Mary.
