Ballyhahill School Parents Association would like to inform people “that the clean up of the outside of the primary school is organised for August 18th. This will only be possible with the help of those in our community so if you are free on the day please come along and help out. We would be most grateful for any amount of time you can give. Every pair of extra hands will go a long way! Bring with you anything that you have that will be needed such as yard brushes, power washers etc.. The association wishes to thank anyone who contributed in any way to its small school throughout the school year. It is very much appreciated by the parents, the pupils and the teachers. Thank you!!”

Killeaney AFC held its AGM recently. Mickey Mulvihill was welcomed as the new chairman for the coming year.

Everybody, including those who do not normally watch matches, are glued to their seats these days watching all the matches, between football, hurling and now hockey.  An exciting few weeks lie ahead hoping that this will be Limerick’s year to win an All Ireland. Luimneach Abú is the catchphrase everywhere.

I have the pleasure of Joanne Feely De Graaf and her family these days. Joanne is the youngest daughter of Joe Feely who spent his youth in Glasha and his adult life in Canada. They are enjoying their time in West Limerick having visited various tourist sites from the Giant’s Causeway, Fermanagh, Athlone, Clare and now heading to Kerry.
