Ad­di­tional new work on the Queen of Peace Ad­ven­ture Youth Club premises on the Seafront has com­menced. Floors in the two club rooms will be cov­ered in high grade safety non-slip tiles. This will be a big im­prove­ment, which will fa­cil­i­tate easy clean­ing. The club was es­tab­lished in 1967, and with forty-nine mem­bers there are now more on roll than at any pre­vi­ous time. Any per­son who wishes to view this re­stored build­ing may ar­range to do so by tele­phon­ing 2860837.


Bray Divers have planned for the near fu­ture div­ing trips to Hook Head, Portroe Slate Quarry, and Saint John's Point. There are dives ev­ery week­end through­out the en­tire year. In the win­ter a dive hol­i­day abroad will be or­gan­ised. Next Septem­ber the club will run train­ing cour­ses for new divers. Any divers who have qual­i­fi­ca­tions are wel­come to join the club. For de­tails tele­phone 2860837.


On Mon­day March 21 a meet­ing of con­cerned res­i­dents met in Saint Cronin's School, and dis­cussed the Tescos Su­per­mar­ket pro­posed de­vel­op­ment plans.

There were many speak­ers at the meet­ing, and the main con­cerns stated were traf­fic con­ges­tion, noise, anti so­cial be­hav­iour, and the height of the pro­posed build­ing. Ref­er­ence was made re­gard­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of ex­tra em­ploy­ment that would arise if the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment was suc­cess­ful. Eight Town Coun­cil­lors at­tended the meet­ing.
