Tim’s Diary.
Brought to you this month by Work/ Life balance Day. What’s the difference?

Whatever genius had the idea to declare the 29th of February as “Work/Life Balance Day” for 2008 needs his head examined quickly. To designate a day trying to strike a work life balance on a day when we all worked for nothing is bizarre in the extreme.

A wonderful night with the Baldonnel Singers enhanced the coffers of both of the parishes in Ballymore last month. Leap Day had the rafters ringing in the church. No leap year proposals on the night. If you heard of any elsewhere let us know.

There was supposed to be two days of Cheltenham down as I write this. Y=the weather had the final say in this as Burns said “the best laid plans of mice and men,” Hopefully with two grueling days ahead the Paddies will out with a lot of winners.

Sad to see the (very) sudden demise of the Kildare Voice. It seemed to be turning the corner on both sales and content in the weeks preceding its closure.

The consultation process about the Parish forming an association with a nother parish or group of parishes is ongoing. If you want to return a ballot paper please do so as soon as possible
