The Irish Cancer Society “Daffodil Day” will take place on Friday next, March 22.

€2,506 was raised in this area last year. Thank you for your generosity.

As in previous years, we are appealing for collectors for the day. We really do need more helpers. A little time goes a long way!

Funds are needed now more than ever to continue the marvellous work undertaken by the hospice teams.

We also need a supply of daffodils this year so all donations would be much appreciated. Please support in any way you can.

We also want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported us over the years.

The death occurred on Thursday last of Richard (Richie) Horgan, of Hillside, Knockavilla, after a long illness bravely borne. Richie had a long involvement with his beloved Kickham GAA and camogie clubs, serving as a selector manager and officer on a number of occasions during the years.

His love for all things gaelic were passed on to his children who represented the club at all grades in hurling, football and camogie, some went on to wear the county jersey with distinction and achieved great succes.

As a mark of respect to Richie and the Horgan family Pairc Ui Ciocaim was closed on Friday and Saturday and the club provided a guard of honour as his remains were carried from his home to Knockavilla church on Saturday morning.

We offer our deepest sympathies to his heartbroken wife Breda and family on their sad loss.

Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.

There have been a number of other deaths in the parish in recent times and we offer our sympathies and condolences to all who were bereaved. May the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.
