Good to read on the local papers that Kate Thornhill is one of the people nominated for The Offaly Person of the Year recognising her voluntary work in the Uganda Orphanage last year.
As a keep in touch with that same orphanage last nights table quiz was held for their cause and some 225 Euro was raised.
The fine weather is having an effect on the flood and river levels have eased back a little but are still high. Noticed the River Blackwater has dropped over a foot in a week.
Shannonbridge Potteries took part in a trade show in the RDS in Dublin this week and Mick Killeen and Tom Mc Evoy visited the show yesterday and were impressed with the variety and size of what was on offer. They reckon one would need two days to get a good look at everything.
See on the papers that U2 are starting their American tour in San Diego and after a few weeks touring will continue touring Europe. Two concerts have been scheduled for Croke Park.
Weather forecast for today and next three days is for dry cloudy conditions with temperatures reaching 10 C or 50 F during the day. Some light frost at night where skies are clear.
Reminder that the Library is open tonight from 7 to 9 pm.
