Congratulations to Skeheenarinky School on winning first prize in the Ballyporeen St Patrick’s Day parade. Their horse-burger theme proved popular with the judges and the school won a generous cash prize and a handsome plaque for displaying in the school. The Parents’ Association would like to thank all the pupils and parents who rallied to the call to get involved in the preparation and for participating on the day. Thanks again to Kay Caplice for being there with her camera to capture some terrific moments. We also congratulate the Ballyporeen committee for organising another great parade!

There was a suggestion in these notes on 7th February regarding a community clean-up. Seanie Crotty has informed me that the Paddy O’Mahony Skeheenarinky Fianna Fáil Cumann has now applied to South Tipp County Council for a clean-up kit, which is promised very soon. Volunteers to help in the clean-up should contact Seanie on 086-3984970.
SKEHEENARINKY COMMUNITY ALERT
The number of houses registered with the Text Alert service is now over 100. The more houses registered, the easier it is to communicate quickly with a large segment of the community. The service has been up and running for a week, and in the first days of the service, people have already made use of the service to notify the community about a worrying event and a suspicious vehicle. Since the beginning of the Text Alert service, many residents have reported that they are now more alert about activity in their areas. We have learned that in some communities, Text Alert services have received hoax reports of suspicious activity. In order to reduce the chance of hoax calls occurring here, please note that calls from blocked phones will not be accepted. The committee appreciates the messages of thanks and 'job-well-done' which were received from residents in the area. We're glad you appreciate the effort.
Items for these notes can be emailed to email@example.com or phone or text 086-3840894 before 11.30am on Monday prior to publication.
