Moyvane Notes – 16th February, 2009

Marian Hall:
You are all welcome to use the Marian Hall, it is in the true sense a parish hall, but can I appeal to those of you who use the building to please use only whatever lights are necessary. As you are all aware the cost of electricity has gone through the roof and so has the Marian Hall ESB bill. The bill for the last two months was over €900. We would appreciate it if you would remember this when you hit the switches next time you use the Hall.

Results for last week. No winner. Numbers drawn: 1   9   17   31. Lucky Dips: €100 Brigitte Hogan, Leitrim Middle. €50 Eamonn Lally, Leitrim Middle. €20 each Noreen Dore, Woodgrove, Moyvane.
