_June Staplestown News________



Staplestown was recently saddened by the passing of Bridie Staunton, Coill Dubh. A former resident of Staplestown for many years, Bridie was predeceased, just six months ago, by her beloved husband, Larry. A great neighbour with a sense of fun - She will be greatly missed.


Two units of the Fire Brigade were called to bring a fire under control, on Gilltown Bog, on Holy Saturday last. The fire, which was fanned by a strong wind, spread quickly and threatened a shed containing a large quantity of Animal foodstuff. Thanks to the quick action of the firemen the nearby forest was saved from potential destruction. It is not known how the fire started.


The Fire Brigade was also called, on Holy Saturday night, to quench a fire at Donadea Forest Park that threatened the Ice House. This fire was started maliciously. Timber was brought from a variety of places around the forest and brought into the Ice House, which was then set on fire. There was extensive smoke damage caused to the stonework.
