Did you read the newspapers recently? Looks like the powers that be want to close up to 200 post offices and you know well that the first to close will be those in Rural areas. We really need to stand up and defend ourselves and lobby our politicians before it’s too late. Dublin dictates everything, wants everything and then they have the cheek to complain about the price of accomodation and traffic congestion and guess who created it? Themselves, because everything stops south of the Red Cow. We are becoming more and more the forgotten people. Wake up local politicians and fight for your constituents.

STRICTLY COME DANCING: After the massive success of last year’s show and the great enjoyment had by all on the night, it is wonderful to be able to announce that Strictly is returning to Moyvane Community Centre on Sunday, April 30th. This year the show is going to be a Hollywood themed night where all dancers will be dancing to iconic songs from the movies. Last year’s show was a complete sell out so please book early to avoid disappointment.Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 01 (Fool’s Day) and can be purchased in Kennellys Home Value hardware or by texting Katie on 0870568209. The event is Strictly over 18’s. Looking forward to another night of great entertainment and fun!
