The annual primary schools table quiz will this year take place in the Community Hall Knockavilla on Friday next, February 24, at 7.30pm. Two categories will be pupils from 3rd and 4th class which will compete for the Community Council shield, while pupils from 5th and 6th class will compete for the Michael Breen perpetual trophy.

This table quiz has attracted a huge amount of entrants from all the schools in the area, and it goes from strength to strength in its popularity. We look forward to the usual strong support from our local schools, and the committee would encourage parents to ensure their children have their teams sorted before the night. Teams of four are still only E12. Refreshments will be available to any parents who wish to remain in the hall while the quiz goes ahead.


Youth club will not be going ahead on this Friday, February 24, as previously arranged as the table quiz is on that evening in the Community hall. We will be back on March 9. New members and volunteers remain welcome.

This year I would like to remember one of our most valued supporters, Philomena Grene, of Grene Park, Dundrum. Philomena sadly passed away on October 31, last year. May she rest in peace. Each and every year for the past 24, I would return home, on the eve of daffodil day, to buckets of fresh daffodils outside my door. Even when Philomena was unable to be out and about she always had someone else willing to carry on the tradition for her and the flowers have never failed to be there for me.

Philomena was, for many years, an active member of Tipperary & District Flower & Garden Club and had many winning entries in the annual Tipperary Show. Philomena will be greatly missed by all her friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a ainm dilís.
