SNOW BRINGS OUT THE BEST
Although the snow brought great joy and entertainment throughout, It was also tough going for some people over the last number of days as the snow drifts etc paid havoc on services and day to day activities around St. John’s Parish. A huge pulling together by the community insured that neighbours and friends were all looked after. Well done to everybody who checked in on elderly and alone friends , those who helped to clear access and help out neighbours to get through the cold spell.
Next Sunday our friends from the Sunny South East will travel in their numbers for the Allianz Hurling League clash between Kilkenny & Wexford. O’Loughlin Gaels GAA Club will again be available for Parking and it’s facilities open for supporters. Please spread the word and volunteers as always will be appreciated.
After the few snow days the Children got an early taster of what Its going to be like to be at home all day during the Easter Holidays. If you’re looking for something for them to do O’Loughlin Gaels GAA Easter Camp has you covered . Starting on March 26th it will run until March 30th from 10am to 2:30pm each day.
