PARISH COUNCIL

PARISH COUNCIL

At the moment, there are a number of people who wish to be part of the Development Association Parish Alarm Scheme. Unfortunately, we cannot help them as we have no alarms. We are aware that there are alarms in houses where people have gone to nursing homes or gone home to God. It would be wonderful to get these alarms as they can be reused for deserving clients. If you know where one is available, please contact any member of the Parish Council.

Boherlahan Dualla Juvenile GAA: Last Saturday morning our U10s took part in a football blitz in Rockwell. We had two teams participating, playing matches against Moycarkey, Arravale Rovers and Clonmel Commercials. A great experience for them. We hope to be having a three-day GAA camp during the Easter Holidays which is been organised by coaching officer Andy Ryan and his team. Further clarification on this in due course. Training continues as per the usual times each Saturday morning, new players and coaches are always welcome. Membership of €10 is incredible value for juveniles, who enjoy a long and active season. We hope to have a few fundraising activities throughout the year to help finance juvenile activities, any ideas regarding this are very welcome.

SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN

The parish of Boherlahan Dualla has certain procedures and a Code of Conduct in place to help in the safeguarding and protection of children. We want to do our best to create a safe environment for children and young people and to ensure their protection from abuse of any kind.
