Birthday greetings were in order on Sunday last for Mary Carr, Kilbeg, who with her family celebrated the big 90 in a local hotel. Following the celebrations Mary went to An Grianan for a week’s break. Good health and good luck Mary for many more years.


To the Buckley family, 5 Limerick Street, on the death of their dear mam, Mary. Mary was a gentle loving lady at heart, never complained and never said a wrong word, only praise for everyone. She was Mam to Lena, Marie, Teresa, Margaret, Michael and Noel, a caring nana to her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. She will be missed by her many friends who always called for the chat! Mary was so lucky to have had two such caring S.R.N. nieces Mary and Rita Maher, Carnahalla who cared for her so diligently. The funeral showed Mary’s popularity both days with the huge attendance. May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.


Congratulations to Paudie and Elaine Collins, Carnahalla, who are the proud parents of a lovely baby girl called Katie.


The recent scrap metal collection organised by the Parents’ Association of Cappawhite N.S. was a tremendous success. Almost E9,000 was raised in this fundraising venture. Sincere thanks to all who contributed and help over the weekend. Your support is much appreciated.
