Congratulations to Miriam Langan, Glasha and Pa Brouder, Glenbawn who got married last weekend. We wish them a happy life together.

Ballyhahill National School is doing a clothing collection at the moment so if you have any bags of unwanted clothes shoes curtains etc please drop them to the school and they will gladly take them from you. If you are unable to drop them just contact the school and a pickup will be arranged. The Parents Association wishes to thank all those who were involved in the bag packing on Saturday in Tesco. I have great admiration for the members of this association; they have given a lot of time to keeping up the school maintenance which includes painting, cleaning, cutting back shrubbery etc. They have been delighted with the help they have received from willing volunteers and will continue to appreciate a helping hand as time goes on. The school and grounds is looking very well at the moment. Well done to all involved.
