Active Retirement

Thanks to this months guest speakers Jimmy and Tommy from Arklow R.N.L.I.

Please bring €10.00 in a signed envelope. Please return voting papers to Anne Thornton or Margaret Brady before 21st January.


The numbers: 4, 6, 8 and 19 were drawn in the sports club lotto on Monday last January 8th . Match three winners were: Garrett Byrne, Breda Murphy, Philip Doyle, John Keenan and Kevin O’Neill. The jackpot was not won. The jackpot is €4350.


Aughrim Town & Country Market at the Pavilion, Rednagh Road, every Saturday from 10am – 2pm. The New Year got off to a great start last Saturday when we returned after the Christmas break. A large crowd of happy people filled the market cafe for Celene and Eleanor’s first day at the helm and they certainly impressed with their tasty spread!  There is a lovely selection of fresh produce on offer including; organic fruit and vegetables, farm fresh eggs, home baking, locally grown meat, jams, chutneys, freshly cooked frittatas and lots more. For further information please contact Caroline at: 0860865838.
