Sandra Conway was the guest at a specially convened cheque presentation ceremony by An Ríocht Athletic Club 50/50 Draw at her place of work, Castleisland Post Office during the week.

Sandra was last week’s winner of a draw prize of €525 and club chairman Joe Walsh and An Riocht AC facility manager Lisa Horgan made the presentation.

In the club’s Friday afternoon draw, Ann Courtney, Barrack Street won this week’s prize of €500 and her cheque will await collection at next Friday’s draw at a venue to be confirmed.

Chairman Walsh thanked all the club’s supporters for making the weekly draw and prizes possible and he confirmed that another stretch of the town park walk around the athletics facility will soon be tar-maced due to their contributions to the weekly draw.

St. Pat’s Students on Duty

A team of students and diligent workers from St. Patrick’s Secondary School are currently volunteering in the spirit of the Tidy Towns movement in cleaning and weeding the stretch of the pathway concerned in preparation for its new surface.

Shane Kelliher, Killian Dennehy and Tomás Jones have been sticking to their task and making steady progress for the benefit of their community since returning to school. Their project is part of the ongoing involvement by St. Pat’s in the day to day work of the Castleisland Tidy Towns group.

I was encouraged to mention them by people they encountered in the course of their work there and because of their attitude and manners towards the users of the facility.

This is a clear-cut case for the application of an tseanfhocal: Mol an Óige agus Tiocfaidh Sí.
