Kildimo Notes W/E Dec 19 2009


You’ll be pleased to know that the local community notes are among the most popular to receive ‘hits’ via the Internet. Naturally the more numerous of these from outside Ireland is from the British mainland, with a surprising number from the Isle of Man. A reader in Texas, who made a hit, expressed an interest in our local patron Saint Díoma who featured recently in the local notes. Others who made contact were from the USA and Australia and some from other destinations abroad. Best wishes to all our readers abroad for Christmas and 2010. You might like to let your family and friends abroad know of this popular way to keep in touch with home by accessing the site at the Kildimo News Blogspot.


Members of the local Youth Club will be participating in the Copswood College Christmas musical, so there will be no Youth Club meeting on Friday December 18.


In the weekly draw on December 8, numbers 5, 6, 16 & 20 were the winning combination for a Jackpot of €4.000. As no punter made the winning prediction, five ‘Lucky Dips’ were drawn for prizes of €20 each by Billy O’Regan, Mary Bourke, Mossie/Mary Griffin, Jackie Griffin and Mike Dillon, Snr. The Community Council members in charge of the weekly draw wish to convey their thanks to all who supported it during the year and they look forward to your continued support in the New Year.

Centenary Celebrations

Kildimo ICA extends an invitation to all former members to join with them on Wednesday January 6 2010, Nollag na mBan, in celebrating the launch of the ICA Centenary Year. A celebratory lunch will be held in Woodlands Hotel, Adare where members from all parts of Limerick City and County will converge. Tickets €20 each must be pre booked. Further information available from Phyllis O’Halloran Fed PRO (087) 2452336. Bí Linn agus Fáilte.


Families are requested to please bring in any non-perishable food items to donate to St. Vincent de Paul Food Appeal to Mr. Fitzgerald/Ms. Meehan or to Mrs. Frost’s office. All food greatly appreciated.

Folk Group will travel to Milford Care Centre on Monday, December 21 to perform in their yearly carol service there. Coaches sponsored by McElligott’s, Clarina.

1st years, their mentors, transition year students and members of the student council will travel to ‘Limerick on Ice’ on Friday, December 18, 2009.


A new recycling initiative by the Council to deal with the increased amount of packaging and empties arising from Christmas has been launched. There are lots of ideas to deal with this waste and among them is one to combat the recessionary lack of presents. If you cannot afford to buy, then give your time instead. Neglectful male partners will be especially interested in this idea. When you’re confronted by a frosty Christmas morning on the face of your significant other for ‘forgetting’ her present, an adroit move will be to implement this great idea. “Of course I hadn’t forgotten darling, I’m just going to collect your mother now” (While you continue preparing the Christmas dinner).


The Community Council wish to convey their good Christmas wishes to all members of the community, at home and abroad. They appreciate the support they receive from the community in the projects they have undertaken. Great new advances in community development are projected for the New Year and you will be kept well advised of these. Most of all they wish you a safe holiday period, sensible celebrating and health and happiness in the New Year. Such sentiments are shared by the community-appointed local correspondent who thanks you for your input and interest in the ‘Kildimo Notes’.
