STEP AHEAD PROGRAMME
The Step Ahead Maths Programme took off to
a flying start, on Wednesday 21st October, in Peters Lounge. A small but lively
group proved that you can laugh and learn at the same time, and hopes are high that their
enthusiasm and interest will see them through the 10 week programme, which is provided by
Timahoe Branch as a free service to the community. Many thanks to Peter Burke for
permitting use to use his newly decorated lounge.
Timahoe and District Gun Club are holding a
Poker Classic on Friday 20th Nov. The event will take place in Bradys of Timahoe and
will start at 8.00pm sharp. The tickets cost £20 and there is £500.00 in prize money.
The tickets are available from club members.
WHAT A "BIRD"
1st of November is the first day of the
shooting season and the Timahoe lads from the Timahoe & District Gun Club had a great
time. After a hard days shoot the lads met up in Bradys for the well earned pint,
but the highlight of the day and night is the judging for the "BEST LOOKING
BIRD". The winner this year was David Flaherty with a tight second going to David
Heffernan. Believe it or not, thats not all the lads look for in a "Bird".
They also like a "LONG TAIL" and the longest tail went to both David Flaherty
and John Casey, who shared 1st place. A good night was had by the lads with plenty of
"TALL TALES" told.
Over the next few weeks, news-boxes will
appear in the local schools. These boxes are going to be a collection point for any news,
articles, poems, etc or maybe you just want to let off steam about something that drives
you mad. If you have anything you want printed in the Newsletter just drop it in the
News-box, or give the item to a child to post into the box for you. And remember kids, we
want to hear from you as well. Maybe you have a letter to Santa that you want us to print
for you or maybe you have a poem. Remember the Newsletter is there for you. So use it and
start by getting those stories into us.
