The Annual Parish Barbeque takes place on the Bank Holiday Sunday, the 4th of August, at 5p.m. at the Quarry Park once again.This event was a great success last year, and should be even much better this year. Music by local Artists from 5pm to 6pm and Oceans Eleven 6pm to 8pm. Food served, fun and games, face painting, other novelties and raffle. We hope that players, former players and Parishioners from near and far will attend and make this a really enjoyable evening. General Admission is €10.00, Students €5.00 and Children Under -12 are admitted for free. So do please come along, for what should be a great evening out for everyone.

Best of luck to the Cashel GAA team who play Carrickedmond this weekend in the first round of the Championship.

The FAS staff and Tidy Towns members said a goodbye to Robert at a very enjoyable Bar-B-Q recently. Robert had completed his work term in the village.  During that term he built many stone walls and pavements throughout the village keeping carefully to the style set by the late Ganly brothers Brian and Johnny.  Catering for the night was by Ingolf and Rosie.

The Tidy Towns are very thankful to all the ladies who offered to care for the flower beds in the village.  As a result of their goodwill the village never looked so good.  The final judging is next week and we hope the judges find it free of litter.

We offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Angela Casey, Moate and formerly of Elfeet, who died suddenly last Wednesday.  To her son James, mother Rosaleen, sister Patricia, her aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives and friends, we offer our deepest sympathy.  May her soul rest in peace.
