Attendees can learn more about waste prevention ideas for the home and the wider community areas. The main focus will be placed on the three R’s, Reduce, Re-use and Re-cycle. To learn how to get the most out of your household recycling, and get a brief introduction to home composting please feel free to attend. Expert advisors from Limerick County Council will be in attendance to answer your queries. Further information can be sought by contacting the Environmental Section at (061) 496192. Anglesboro Tidy Towns Group was chosen to host this event due to their wonderful impact since entering Tidy Towns for the first time two years ago. Light refreshments will be served.

DRIVE TO SURVIVE: The curtain came down on Anglesboro Community Councils Contribution to Drive to Survive on Thursday night last, when the local drama group staged “A wake in the west” for one last show. All of the proceeds went towards Drive to Survive. As the curtain was opened for the finale the most surprised member of the full house attendance was Drama group President Tom Roche. He was 80 years young on that very day. He had decided to celebrate his birthday in a quiet way. However, the Drama Group had other ideas! Tom was the recipient of a candle lit cake and a lovely framed picture. This was kept secret from Tom. All present were loud in their praise for him, as he has made a huge contribution to all Community Groups in Anglesboro and his gentle, respectful presence has greatly enhanced many an occasion since he came to live there in 1981. The celebrations later continued in the Galtee View Bar, where Tom was honoured with many tributes for this great contribution to Community Life in Anglesboro. Happy Birthday Tom, every health, happiness and good wish from all your friends in the Boro.

VOICE OF IRELAND: As usual Keith Hanley did us all proud when he performed on the Voice of Ireland last Saturday evening. He lifted the roof of the building with his performance of “I just wanna praise you”. His grandmother Noreen, mother Alice, Sister Eileen and Uncle Thomas Gallahue were all present to cheer him on, as were a huge number of other supporters, not to mention the huge following he has in Charleville, Ballylanders, Anglesboro and all around the country. Keith won in his category after an absolutely brilliant display of talent. He was the only contestant who danced with background choreography and he showed that he could dance!! He received eight points with huge praise from Judge Cian Egan. Cian advised him to diversify from the usual jaunra he has taken up to now and “strip it back” to a slower tempo song. Sharon Corr said “I just wanna praise you” and congratulated him on his great routine with eight points. Super star Brezzie gave Keith huge praise saying that he would travel to hear him playing, he had it all, the great voice and the ability to perform. He said that Keith was streets ahead of the other performers in his presentation on Saturday night. Congratulations Keith, we’re all behind you. We’re looking forward to hearing you sing again and know that you will go all the way. Well deserved!!
