Kildimo Community Notes WED May 27 2009

May 09 Kildimo NS pupils participating in 'Clean Up'programme in the village recently


The new start-up series of Draws continues and numbers 9, 24, 27 & 28 were the winning combination on Tuesday, May 19. As no punter made the winning prediction, five ‘Lucky Dips’ were drawn for prizes of €20 each, which went to Joe Gleeson, M. Rogan, Nathan Hogan, Mary Ellen Griffin and John Sheehan.

An important date for your diary is the AGM of the local Community Council. You are strongly requested to put Wednesday, June 10 aside for this meeting in the Seven Sisters at 8.30pm. Full details of the business to be conducted will be circulated in a Newsletter prior to the event. The present Council have been working hard to expedite development of the community site and in the raising of funds through the weekly Lotto, to maintain the Library. The success of local development depends on local participation- ‘ní neart go cur le céile’.

Fortunately there hasn’t been any need for the AED that is in readiness in the western Carpark of the local church. This means that it is all the more imperative that the original trainees make themselves available to revise their skills in a session to be held in the back room of the Seven Sisters on Thursday, May 28 at 8.00pm. In the event of a heart incident, it is important to gain access to the Defibrillator through one of these operatives that is while notifying the ambulance centre as a priority. Remember when ringing 999 that the call centre at the other end of your line may not be in Limerick and so it is important to be specific in regard to your location. For example, if you ask for an ambulance to be sent to St. Joseph’s Church or the Post Office and hang up, the operator will not know which of the hundreds of such locations you mean as he may have taken your call in a centre in Dublin or elsewhere. The golden rule when ringing for help is that you don’t hang up until the operator tells you.

For a second time, the local PO has sold a scratch card winning €10,000! Peggy sells lots more of lesser amounts and in the past purchasers have won their place on the national show. Another such big win is due and Peggy thinks it may just be you!

Fancy a game? Members are travelling to Charleville on June 13, teeing off between 9 and 10 am. Contact Matty if you intend to join the fun at 086 0798093.

At the recent annual general meeting tributes were paid to Mary O’Rourke, Glenameade, outgoing Guild President, having served the recognised three-year period in office. During her term in office many changes within the organisation nationally were being advanced including the constitution and Mary facilitated in every way possible with the Kildimo members ensuring that everybody had a voice in the matter. She now assumes the role of vice president for the coming year giving her a little more time to concentrate on her many hobbies including her art and love of animals.


Should you be making way in your wardrobe for the new spring collection, your better rags will be welcome to the ISPCC ‘Clothes Bank’ behind ‘De Bucket’. Shoes will also be accepted and if you want to recycle your old mobile phone, there’s also a place to bin it at the same location. A similar clothing bank is available at Copswood College as well as the different kinds of glass and food tins.
