Our intermediates had a good win against Ballnabrana recently in a challenge game. Our Junior B Footballers drew with Portlaoise last Wednesday evening in Timahoe. In what was an entertaining game, Timahoe will feel we left the points behind us. Training continues as normal for all teams. Congratulations to Colum Dunne on his selection to the Laois minor panel.
Please help out where you can in relation to the TIDY TOWNS. Please ensure that only glass bottles go into the recycle bins near the hall. Other rubbish had been discovered there and officials have taking bins away from communities where they have been abused.
We have had loads of visitors from all over the globe to the centre recently. Our participation in Ireland’s Ancient East is really helping with visitors numbers. Please continue to spread the word and if you haven’t already call in to say hello.
Well done to all the boys and girls who turned up for the Easter hunt recently, it was great fun and well organised. Don’t forget that there is the weekly park run in Vicarstown every Saturday morning at 9.30am and its free of charge.

A big well done to all for supporting the recent run in the Village organised by the Timahoe ladies. It was heartwarming to see the crowd attending to Remember Dinny Cahill from Ratheniska. The run was well organised and supported with hundreds descending on the Village to run, well done all.
The widely anticipated Corner Shop tea rooms were officially opened recently by former Parish Priest Fr Jim. A large crowd gathered to wish Pasty, Eileen and Jamie all the best of luck in their new venture. The extra space in the shop allows for patrons to get tea and coffee along with buns and cakes and also a selection of hot and cold sandwiches. These can all be enjoyed on-site beside the homely pot belly stove. There is also toilet facilities and best of all a cone machine for those advancing summer days. Patsy and co are to be commended for taking this jump and let’s hope the community support their new venture.
