Would like to thank community for donations to our church gate collection which raised €368, your support is greatly appreciated, without it we would not be able to continue the work we do. We were very disappointed to see flowers removed from the Rosenallis sign area entering village, we are trying our best to do what we can to improve the area. We are a very small committee who desperately need more volunteers, if you would like to get involved in any way please contact Sheila Mahon or Lucy Conroy.

The committee would appeal to the person or persons who removed the festival signs from various roadside areas and the stakes used for the dog show from the field to please return them, we worked hard to get these items and need them for next year. Please return to the field gate area or contact any committee member to arrange return. Thank you.
