Weekly News 25th August 2013

The 15th Terryglass Arts Festival has been a resounding success with an enormous attendance. It really was the place to be last weekend. A huge crowd attended the opening ceremony on Wednesday and thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. A big attendance came out on Friday evening to Terryglass Church to appreciate the beautiful classical sounds of violinist Vladimir and his musicians.
The Saturday night events at the Quay were superb. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the colourful display of fireworks and the entertainments.
As on previous occasions the Sunday Family Fun Day was very well received with an array of entertainments, music and exhibitions to suit all tastes and ages.
The large programme of diverse workshops was booked to capacity, this feature of the festival draws a very large number of people from a wide area.
Well done to the committee and many helpers, you put on an extremely organised and entertaining festival.

The death occurred on August 8th of John Ferry, Glenaveigh, Carney. Prayers and a memorial service took place in Bushy Park Nursing Home on Monday, followed by private cremation. Sympathy is extended to his wife Sheila, his family, and extended family, nieces, nephews, neighbours and many friends.

Congratulations are extended to all our Leaving Cert. students on their good results. We wish them every success in obtaining the choices they hope to pursue.

Work continues every Monday evening in Kilbarron and if you can spare some time it would be much appreciated, meeting in the square at 7.30pm.

The ‘Tip of the Week’ is Preventing Computer Fraud. Computer fraud is increasing in frequency and sophistication, if you receive emails from senders who you don’t know, delete them immediately without opening them and do not reply, as this can tip off the sender that they have reached a valid email address.
If you get any type of unsolicited email or pop up message that asks for any type of personal information, don’t respond and notify your service provider. Never send personal or sensitive business information via an unsecured email.
