Big Win for Noeleen
Congratulations to Noeleen O’Connor who won last month’s bingo jackpot in The Resource Centre. Noeleen bagged a big win: €6,000, much to the delight of the attendance and bingo master, Gus Kavanagh. Bingo continues every Wednesday night at 8.30pm, profits in aid of the Resource Centre. It’s not often Gus Kavanagh is pleased to hand over money but on this occasion, he was delighted

Tragedy and Joy
It was great to see Breda and Max Piper home last week, along with Danielle and young Tato. Sad to say that once again, Breda’s family have been hit with tragedy; Breda’s 34 year old nephew, Keith Henderson, died after crashing his car en route to show his delighted mum, Kathleen, photos of his first born child. What a dreadful tragedy for the family to have both a christening and funeral held on the one day. We extend our sympathy to his wife, parents, brother and sister and the extended family.

Baby joy
On the return of the Piper family to England, there was, at least, some good news in store as Eoin’s partner, Katrina gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Makaile, a whopping great 9lbs 13ozs.

To all the boys and girls in 5th and 6th class, who are receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Across the bottom of the page, in a strip, must be prominent:

Annie Messitt, former housekeeper to the late Monignor Browne and Fr. Kelly will celebrate her 100th birthday on April 10th April. What a pet she used to be, an absolute lady and there are many of her friends here in the village who still keep in touch and visit her regularly.

If any of you who knew her would like to send her greetings, her address is: Shannagh Bay Nursing Home, Seafront, Bray, Co. Wicklow. Annie is in good health and remembers all her old friends here; her family are having a party for her and Mag MacD has promised loads of photos for The Bugle.
If she doesn’t come up with the pics, I suggest someone loan her a pair of crutches…. R
