____________November Editorial_____________

Now that winter is upon us we have several seasonal items in this months newsletter. The tragedies of recent days on the roads and in homes reminds us that we should all be vigilant about safety. The Credit Union organisation is promoting road safety and has reflective arm bands and reflectors for bicycles; ask at your local branch.

Fire prevention in the home is vital for us all - here are some of the tips provided by the National Safety Council:

install a smoke alarm and regularly check the batteries

young children should never be left alone

never leave a chip pan unattended

use a spark guard around fires

totally ban smoking in bed

take special precautions at holiday periods such as Christmas and the New Year

On a lighter note we have the Festive Season to look forward to but before that we have a major event for Tír na Móna - the launch of our first 5 year Development Plan will take place on Friday the 12th November in Dowlings of Prosperous, guest speaker Mr. Charlie McCreevy, T.D. Minister for Finance. Our annual auction will also take place on the same night and light refreshments will be served. Your support will be greatly appreciated.

The MONA Committee.
