Birthday greetings are extended to Mrs. Brannigan, Roedean, the oldest resident in the parish, who celebrated her 98th birthday on New Year’s Day. We wish her many more years of health and happiness and it is great to still see her out and about.

The ‘Tip of the Week’ is on ‘Garages and Sheds’- garages and sheds are often full of expensive tools which are ideal for breaking into the rest of the house. Fit strong locks to garage and shed doors and make sure the doors are solid enough not to be kicked in. Lock ladders inside the garage and sheds. Also take note of the serial numbers of expensive equipment, it makes it more traceable if stolen.

The Shannon Rovers Review 2011 was launched recently.
