If you can spare some time on a Monday evening please come along to the village around 7pm, all help would be much appreciated in preparing Kilbarron village for the forthcoming competition. There is always weeding, hedging and planting and general tidying needing to be done.

The ‘Tip of the Week’ is- ‘Minding Your Property’. Mark your property whether farm equipment/boating equipment and record serial numbers when appropriate, it makes it easier to identify if stolen and then recovered. UV markers or special etching tools can be used. It is also a good idea to photograph your property, photograph items such as jewellery against a ruler. If taking digital photos keep copies of your photos elsewhere than on your computer.

Terryglass Improvements Assoc. would welcome any helpers to join its evening ‘Spring Clean’. Participants meet in the village square every Tuesday at 7.30pm and everyone is welcome.

Please note the change of Mass times for this Sunday 19th May- Mass is in Terryglass at 9.30am and the 11am Mass in Kilbarron is the Confirmation. Saturday evening Mass is as usual at 8pm in Terryglass.
