Kildimo Community Notes W /E March 128 2009


The Thomond Historical Society invites you to their lecture at Mary Immaculate College on March 30 at 8.00. The subject covered by County Council Archaeologist Sarah McCutcheon who conducted the excavations in Adare some years ago will be on the finds uncovered in that work. On the same night at the same venue the Limerick Philosophical Society invites you to their talk, which introduces the Jewish-born Philosopher Emmanuel Levinas who is credited with revolutionising a new approach to ethics. He was a friend of the late Polish Pope and a regular speaker at the annual summer conferences at Castelgandolfo. The speaker here is a little-known philosopher from Ballynacarriga.


Sufferers from Multiple Sclerosis (MS), which is a degenerative and progressive disease of the central nervous system, will benefit from your participation in this Table Quiz. The ‘Corner House’ Pallaskenry is the venue and tables of four cost €20. Get your team together and start training for Monday, March 30. Action begins at 9.00pm sharp and there will be lots of Spot Prizes and a Raffle to enhance your chances of winning a prize. Such voluntary fundraising is becoming more valuable as central funds are currently being withdrawn from Carers for this and other diseases.


The weekend of March 28/29 has been set-aside for the Churchgate Collection in aid of Milford Hospice. At all Masses in Kildimo and Pallaskenry, collectors will be on hand for this most worthy cause for which your continued generosity is solicited.
