Have you seen the swallows yet? Last week before the heavy rain they were lilting the ground in Ayle, Ballyhane and surroundings areas. Thank God they were flying high.


To the Ryan (Phil) family on the death last week of Katie, mam, grandmother and great-grandmother. To her daughters Joan, Angela, Mary, Sr. Helen and Kathleen, son Danny (Canada), grandchildren some of whom travelled from Canada for the funeral, daughters-in-law Veronica and Margaret.

Katie was queen of the Square when she lived there, she moved to the village around 1990 from Ballykiveen are her husband Johnnie died R.I.P. Katie’s many friends will miss calling to the Woodlands to see her, where she spent the last two years of her life. After a very large funeral on both days Katie was laid to rest in the family burial ground in Cappawhite. May her dear soul Rest in Peace.
