Now that the work in the church is complete, the refurbishment work in the Community hall can commence. This week will see the start of the installation of the new heating system. After this is done we will have to carry out some cosmetic work on the interior of the hall which would consist of some plastering, carpentry and electrical. If anyone would be available to help with these projects we would be grateful if they could contact Kieran Slattery, or any Council member.
