Community Alert:

The Cullen Lattin and Solohead Community Alert Group are holding a community safety and drugs awareness meeting on Tuesday night, November 6, at 7pm, to be followed at 8pm by their AGM at the Soccer Club, Cullen. Guest Speakers include Ms. Sinead O’Mahony-Carey, Drug Education Officer, HSE Substance Misuse Team and Nurse Ciara Kelly, Clinical Substance and Detoxification Nurse, HSE. Gardaí from Tipperary will attend to facilitate a Q&A session on the night.

In recent years Halloweeen has become particularly associated with some very unpleaseant aspects of anti-social behavior and other activities which can cause injuries to young people. Some of these practices, which are being highlighted this year by the Community Alert organization include fireworks, bonfires, drinking alcohol in public places and excessive noise, all of which are offences which can be prosecuted in a court of law.

Recent Death:

The death has occurred at an advanced age of Eileen O’Donoghue, nee Moloney, Farrancliffe, Tipperary. She was predeceased by her husband Paddy who died in July 1971. There was a large attendance at her removal from Whelan’s Funeral Home to the Church of the Assumption, Lattin and at the following day’s requiem mass and interment in Mount Bruis cemetery. Sympathy is extended to her sons, daughters, relatives and friends.
