It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you about more vandalism in the locality. The CLM contractors have done their best to landscape the Barrack Street Close houses. Their work was undone a few weekends ago when someone decided to break a lot of the young trees on the approach. Some types of anti-social behaviour, like graffiti or bridge demolition may be able to be explained by those more versed in the workings of the human mind, but I challenge anyone to see any merit in the destruction of trees. So sad.
I bet that Fergal Toomey has his ticket booked already but my workmates are very excited at the prospect of (Un)Real Madrid’s proposed visit to the Hoops.
A Happy Fathers Day to all beleaguered dads for last Sunday!!
Look out for new Garda Reserve on the Sunday night RTE thing “Garda Blues” shortly.
Great to hear of the appointment of Monsignor John Wilson as PP for the parish. The shoes of the last Monsignor were big and will be hard to fill, but good luck to him.
The Ballymore Eustace Tidy Towns have acknowledged a donation of one thousand euro from the Ballymore Bugle. Rose and I have no doubt that the money will be well spent and it is a tribute to all of our contributors, advertisers and readers that we can continue our support of this group and the Senior Citizens Committee.
The football championship is playing out nicely. It would be great to see the Lilywhites go for the Dubs in the Leinster Final. C’mon James.
