CHURCH GROUNDS: Over the past week the left hand side of the Church grounds was tilled and re-seeded, the soil dried sufficiently to allow landscaping machinery to operate, this area is the location for the new septic tank and percolation facilities for the community centre and church, which was installed late last year. A large section of the grounds was torn up during that operation, Ballyhoura Landscaping, Kilfinane undertook the preparation of the soil and the re-seeding of what now a perfect bed for the new grass.

SILAGE SEASON: After the problems of recent months it is good to see the new silage crop being harvested in the area over the past week, balers were in action on some farms, weather was good and ground conditions have dried up a lot.
