Pat established himself as a respected figure in the auctioneering business in this and surrounding areas. An astute business man, his many clients and customers will miss his familiar, local service coupled with his invaluable knowledge of the land and cattle trade.

There is continued good progress on the renovation of Ballyouskill Church. It is anticipated that most of the work will be completed this week and that a major cleaning operation will then take place. So far the church is on schedule to be ready for Christmas with a rededication service beforehand. There will be a choir practice on Thursday, 13th December and new members are still welcome.
