Busy Weekend on The Roads: It was one of the busiest weekends on the roads. All weekend you could not cross the main road in Loughill. From early morning until late at night there was a steady stream of traffic on that road. The sea sides were all packed with families enjoying the beautiful spell of fine weather. Hopefully after the few days rain the fine weather will be back to us again. Monday evening was dull and overcast but we hope it was only a temporary break.

Well done to Limerick: on a great win over Tipperary in The Gaelic Grounds Sunday. It was such an exciting match right through the seventy minutes. People were on the edge of their seats for the last few minutes of the game in case Tipp came back at us. As the commentator said it was spell binding stuff through out the seventy minutes. Even Monday morning 95 FM kept re playing the last few minutes of the game. We look forward to their next match in the next few weeks and we wish them every success for the season ahead.
