Old Bridge

As we start the New Year the thoughts and prayers of the whole community are with the Cronin family at this difficult time following the sad death of Gerry Cronin, Old Bridge.

Sincere sympathy is also extended to the family of May Young, late of St. Kevin’s Terrace and Birmingham, who died recently.

Many thanks are extended on behalf of the community to Sean Prendergast and his helpers who took down the Christmas decorations and packed them away for another year.

If anyone has items for these notes - news, birthdays, etc.- they can give them to Mieke, 5 Cascade Park, tel. 61-27930 or text to 086-8272036.
