NEWS – 9TH June 2013

SUMMER TIME

It is pleasing to note the amount of farm work that was done in the sunshine over the past week. After months of such inclement weather the fine week has transformed the countryside.

 

LIMERICK  BEAT  TIPP.

The beautiful weather was also the background for the Munster hurling championship match between Limerick and Tipperary played in Limerick today. The majority in the border parish of Emly will not be too pleased with the result. Tipp will now depend on the backdoor route to the All-Ireland.

 

VISITORS

Members of the Ahascragh, Co. Galway Tidy Town group visited Emly yesterday (Sat) and were entertained by the local Tidy Town Committee.
