Reflection: For those who walked with us -this is a prayer. For those who have gone ahead- this is a blessing. For those who touched and tended us, who lingered with us while they lived -this is a thanksgiving. For those who journey still with us in the shadows of awareness, in the crevices of memory, in the landscape of our dreams this is a benediction.
NICKY’S BUTCHER SHOP CLOSES One of Shannonbridge’s best known & iconic businesses closed this weekend. Over the years Nicky worked hard & catered for the needs of so many families over the years. The decision to close is not made lightly & part of a worrying trend affecting traditional victualler families. I’m sure everyone join in wishing Nicky the very best in his future and to thank him for unstinting service over the years to our community. Nicky would like to thank customers who have been with the family and shop over generations.
