NEWS – 12th December 2010


The thaw of the last few days has been welcome. The snow and heavy frost of last week made travel very difficult especially on the side roads of the parish. Many houses in rural areas were without running water until the thaw set in. While schools in many parts of the country were forced to close our local school was able to keep open.
