Moyvane Notes – 26th January, 2009

Would You…:
……like to help a good cause? Bru Columbanus provides accommodation for families of seriously ill patients in Cork hospitals and is run on a voluntary basis. This is a wonderful facility and deserves your support. Hopefully you will never need to use it but so many people nowadays do end up in situations that they never planned and the old saying "good to have it, bad to want it" applies at times like this. With this in mind a fundraising table quiz will be held in The New Kingdom Bar, Listowel and your support would be greatly appreciated on this Friday night, January 30 at 9.30pm. For details contact Liz O’Sullivan at 068 49890.
