POWER CUT: A section of Ardpatrick and a wide area of the country side was without power for several hours on Sunday night last, thankfully, power returned before midnight, strange to be sitting at home surrounded by plugs, switches and gadgets all redundant except for the old reliable candle, the powerful moon at least lit the outside world to a great extent.

WEATHER CHANGE: After what was an outstanding Summer and early Autumn the wet season has finally arrived, growth continues to a limited extent, there is plenty of grass and ground conditions are still good. Excellent crops of hay, silage and corn were harvested making up for the disastrous Spring when fodder was imported.
