It is that time of year again. Please make every effort to keep our villages neat and tidy. If everyone cooperates, then the problem is solved. Please be vigilant and challenge people who feel they can use parish amenities for anti-social behaviour. If we take responsibility, then standards and values will be safeguarded and maintained.


Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Church Gate Collection last weekend. €430 was raised. The next fundraising venture will be a Cake Sale on August 11 and 12 in Boherlahan Parish Hall. We now have a defibrillator mounted on the wall outside the Sports Complex and have a list of 20 people (first responders) who are certified to use it. Please make everyone aware that this facility is available in your village. Within the next two weeks we will have a second defibrillator mounted on the wall outside Eddies Shop. Without your help this would not be possible. Sincere thanks for your support and generosity.


Planning is well under way for this year’s Threshing Festival on September 1 and 2. Kings and queens of the Threshing takes place on Saturday, August 11, in the Horse & Hound, Dualla. Booking for stalls should be made to Find us on Facebook on the Dualla Countryside Festival page.


At the recent opening of our new school, we received a good response from many past pupils of old photos and tales of past. We feel that there may be a lot more material in old drawers or presses in our parish. We do ask everyone to have a look around and if they find any old material to please hand it in to either sacristy. If we get enough material, we hope to publish a book to mark this historic milestone in our parish.


Sympathy is extended to the Ryan Family, Ballydine on the death of Tom (Thos) Ryan, Sandymount, Dublin.
