We would like to thank judges Fiona Linnane & Shauna Nunan for judging the talent competition, Stefan Kaiser who took charge of sound and did a wonderful job, to Joanne McGuinness who was MC and kept the event flowing. We would also like to thank the two primary schools for all their help and the parents who turned up in huge numbers to see and support their children taking part.

The Pallaskenry Playground Committee: are delighted to announce that construction is due to begin on site in the next few weeks.in recent weeks the site has been cleared in preparation for construction, this was greeted with much excitement and enthusiasm as the primary school children looked on.

In the past year the committee has raised in excess of €30,000, through a varied and creative fundraising campaign. One of the main fundraisers has been a commemorative ‘Tile Wall’ in which families, individuals and companies can author a message on what will be a tile wall of messages to commemorate the building of this fantastic community resource. To date over 100 tiles have been bought.

A deadline of February 28 has been set as the closing date for inclusion on the tile wall. If you would like to be part of this fundraiser please call Tara Hickson 087 2721099 or Ciara Bermingham 086 3265598.
