Bridie O’Meara and friends will hold a ‘Coffee Morning’ at her home in Ballinderry on Thursday 18th September from 10am-4pm. All proceeds will go to Milford Hospice, Limerick. Please come and join us for a cup of coffee or tea and sample the home baked cakes and tarts while supporting this worthwhile cause. If you are unable to attend a donation may be given to Bridie.

A meeting was held recently, of 30 people of Ballinderry village and surrounds , with a view to setting up a co-op to revive the locality, based on the success of the Loughmore Community Co-operative, aka The Cottage Shop and Tearooms, under the umbrella of the Plunkett Foundation
The two ladies who initiated this very successful project, Mary Fogarty and Maeve O’Hair will come to a meeting in Ballinderry on Thursday 18th September at 8pm in the Tearooms, to talk on doing something similar in Ballinderry and as many as possible are asked to please come and support the meeting. In the meantime it might be an enlightening experience to see the set-up in Loughmore, and if it can work elsewhere, why not in Ballinderry?

Now is the time to start collecting saleable items for the annual Halloween Jumble Sale. This year there is a new formula, the organisers are offering people the opportunity to make a donation to the charity the sale is run for and in return they may run a table or half table for their own cause. This year the sale will be held on one day only, which will be the Halloween Bank-holiday Saturday. So please put aside any suitable items in good condition e.g. bric-a-brac, books, clothes, toys, pictures, plants, clothes in good condition etc.
Please contact Mary McGeeney on 067 22164 for further information as soon as possible if you are considering your own table.
