Weekly News 9th November 2014

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of all the readers of our parish news, both locally and especially those now living in far flung places and who access our news via the internet etc, to say thanks for your work over the past 23 years. Your weekly column kept us all up to date on the latest news in the area, and I’m sure that for many it was the first page to be read each week. Enjoy your retirement Loretta.

Notes for inclusion in the Terryglass and Kilbarron parish notes should be e-mailed to obrien.mt1@gmail by noon each Sunday.
