What began as a nice, neighbourly Easter Sunday morning gesture a few years ago has now become a tradition in the Cahereen Heights Estate area.

Easter Eggs of the chocolate variety are distributed to the doors of all the 97 houses in the estate and to children of all ages.

This is an equal opportunity gesture and no one is left out or behind in this slick operation which has now added new volunteers to its eggs delivery team under the auspices of the estate management committee under the chairmanship of Cllr. Charlie Farrelly with back-up from his partner Martina and neighbour and friend Pat Hartnett.

Acts of Neighbourliness

They also carry out a similar act of neighbourliness at Christmas time aided and abetted by Santa himself.

The team hit the roads around the estate at first light this morning. However, it wasn’t Cllr. Farrelly’s first gig of the day as he was the ‘sound man’ on duty with Fr. Mossie Brick in Scartaglen before 6am this morning for Scart’s first and so well attended Dawn Mass.
