The local Community Group are reminding all members of our community to look out for all members of our community who may be living alone and might need someone to help with getting their everyday needs, or a small bit of company for a while during the day. A small little bit of concern for others goes a long way to help take away the stress and worries of many people who feel they are left alone in life. Please keep a lookout for others and be vigilant at all times.

CHRISTMAS LIGHTING FESTIVAL
Schering-Plough on site, and Pádraig Smith drew a design for the project. Unfortunately a downturn in the economy came and it did not proceed.
We are delighted that it is now set to proceed and it will be a huge benefit to Rathdrum. We as a committee feel that the way forward for Rathdrum is through tourism and this project is an important and massive step in that direction.
OUR LADY’S NATIONAL SCHOOL
