Un­for­tu­nately due to the weather alert last Thurs­day the fire­works event had to be post­poned on health and safety grounds. Heavy rain poured through­out the night and the event would have been a wash out.

The event has been resched­uled to Thurs­day, Au­gust 22. The evening will kick off at 8.30 p.m. on the Mar­ket Square with mu­sic by DJ Albert. At 9.45 p.m. the Fire­works Dis­play will take place in the Par­nell Memo­rial Park fol­lowed by more mu­sic and danc­ing in the Mar­ket Square till 10.30 p.m. Hope­fully the weather does not ham­per the event again. Ev­ery­one wel­come. Hosted by the Rath­drum Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion.


Plan­ning is well un­der way for the judging for the Na­tional En­ter­prise town awards which takes place on Sep­tem­ber 30 in Rath­drum. The aim of this com­pe­ti­tion is to pro­mote en­ter­prise by bring­ing busi­ness and com­mu­nity groups to­gether to show­case the spirit of en­ter­prise in the lo­cal area.

A num­ber of lo­cal peo­ple and mem­bers of Ark­low Mu­nic­i­pal dis­trict and Wicklow County coun­cil have been work­ing to­gether to pre­pare, the first event will be the launch night on Au­gust 22, this will be hosted by Avon Mo­tors. Let­ters have been sent to lo­cal busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups so we re­ally hope there will be a large at­ten­dance on the night, this will be a chance to bring ev­ery­one to­gether to show­case our town.

A weather warn­ing and the hol­i­day sea­son con­spired to re­duce num­bers to 15 brave souls on Thurs­day last for our walk of Troop­er­stown Hill. A very grey and breezy evening ended with the promised rain, on a changed and slightly short­ened cir­cuit, but did not dam­pen the en­thu­si­asm of the group.

This week brings us to the Mot­tee Stone near Avoca. Meet as usual in Rath­drum at the Memo­rial Park for 7 p.m. (although this meet­ing point may change if the Fire­work Dis­play is re­ar­ranged for that night). A mes­sage will be sent out if re­quired on the day. Walk will start at 7.20 p.m.

Please note that the an­nual Card­with­pho­to­so­four2018se­a­son is also now ready. Please ask if you haven’t al­ready re­ceived one.
