Carrick in brief....

Nolan Burns Fund

Nolan Burns Fund

The Carmel Nolan Burns Cancer Support Fund thanks all who supported its fund-raiser in the Carraig Hotel last month including donors, sponsors, entertainers and those who promoted the event.

The Fund also thanks the wonderful people in Clonmel Vintage & Classic Car Club for running their vintage & classic car run in early August in support of the cause.

Carmel Nolan Burns continues to make a good recovery following an operation in the UK to remove a rare tumour, which resulted in the loss of one of her legs from the hip.

The purpose of the fund is to support her in regaining her mobility and functional independence through the provision of prosthetics and aftercare and to ease some of the financial burden on her.

The support fund would like to hear from people with ideas for fund-raising activities.

If you think you can help, please contact (086) 8551253 or email

Heritage Week

Staff at Carrick-on-Suir’s Ormond Castle are very pleased with the public attendance at the events held there during Heritage Week.

The photographic exhibition ‘Ormond through the Centuries’ was a huge success as was Tom Walsh’s talk on the town’s laneways.

The Castle will close before the end of the month, so there are just a few weeks left this year to visit this wonderful site.
