amy cooney, art

Over the last few days there have been reports of attempted and multiple break ins in the area.

What can you do ?

Please. Do keep your eye out, keep your eye on your neighbours house. Do get to know your neighbours…. Pop in for a cuppa this evening and say hi. Even if you don’t like them. ;)

The police station for Ballyboughal is Balbriggan [or at least that's the number in my phone] and their number is 01-8412202. Put it in your mobile. Get your nearest neighbours mobile. Life is good. Lets try and keep it that way.

The Naul Charity Cycle Sept 14th

If like me you enjoy a spin out on the bike you’ll be glad to hear of the up coming Naul Charity Cycle in aid of Naul senior citizens and CASA

Have limited information but there is 2 routes a 20k (which should be handy) and a 50k which I’m told they think goes up to St. Margaret’s and back via Oldtown.

Followed BBQ Music and Raffle in Killians Pub just across the road from the Seamus Ennis Centre.

With regards to sweeper support or road side assistance best move is bring your own pump and a spare tube.

It’s not to hilly out the back towards Oldtown just pack a snack and fill your water bottle.

Hopefully get to see you on route!
