Tidy towns, Birthday girl, a day to remember.

Kilmeaden Tidy Towns.

With the onset of Summer we are eager to brighten up our lovely village. There are key areas of concern in the parish which need to be addressed and proposals of ongoing structural works to be decided. We would urge as many of you as possible to attend our next meeting which will take place on Wednesday April 29th at 8pm in the Village Bistro. It is important that all areas of the village are represented.

Birthday Girl.

We send warmest birthday wishes to well known local lady Helen Millea, Newtown who recently celebrated her 50th birthday in style with her twin sister Anne. The girls partied the night away and everyone had a great time. We hope Helen and Anne enjoy lots more happy birthdays.

Baby Boy.

A Day To Remember.

I was really delighted to be able to attend the ordination of our new Bishop of Waterford and Lismore Bishop Cullinan last week. The sun shone brightly as we all entered the spectacular cathedral and from start to finish we were treated to a beautiful ceremony full of joy,hope, and friendship. There were many highlights throughout the ceremony but the one which sticks out in my mind was when our new Bishop and his 9 brothers and sisters got up to sing the responsorial psalm together. During the ceremony I sat beside Ollie and Kathleen Harris who must have been bursting with pride as they watched their son John play such an important role in the ceremony. It was great to see a Ballyduff man play such a huge part in the event.

Following the ceremony we were all directed out to the WIT where we were treated to a lovely meal. It was piping hot and delicious to taste . I really enjoyed the day and was delighted to have the opportunity to go.
