The Clon­roche-Poul­peasty Vin­tage So­ci­ety held their an­nual St Stephen’s Trac­tor run and funds were handed over to Meals on Wheels in Aughyvoir on Fri­day night last, Meals on Wheels would like to ac­knowl­edge the con­tri­bu­tions made and thank the mem­bers for all their sup­port.


The lo­cal mem­bers of St Vincent de Paul would like to thank most sin­cerely the chil­dren and teach­ers of Donard NS who col­lected a large quan­tity of food prior to Christ­mas. This was an enor­mous help and was dis­trib­uted to the lo­cal ar­eas of Clon­roche, Adamstown, New­bawn and Ra­heen.


The lat­est win­ner from split­the-pot was Kath­leen Doyle Castle­boro, the pot was €206, re­mem­ber all funds are used lo­cally and en­velopes can be bought in any of the lo­cal shops and busi­nesses.


Sun­day, Jan­uary 20, at 1 p.m. is des­ig­nated for one of the high­lights of the so­cial calendar – The Parish Party. With over 100 guests at last year’s’ event this year prom­ises to sur­pass even that. An op­por­tu­nity for so­cial in­ter­ac­tion amounts old friends and ac­quain­tances with good food and an evening’s en­ter­tain­ment is some­thing to look for­ward too and not to be missed.
