First zoom on 29th March Katharine O’Shea centenary—what if she and Parnell never met? But who was Katharine O’Shea (née Wood)? And what if she and Charles Stewart Parnell had never met? Discussion with Tommy Graham, Mary Kenny, Patrick Maume, Daniel Mulhall, and Margaret O’Callaghan. Courtesy of History Ireland.


Trooperstown Pure Mile(s) have started their litter picks and clean-ups of over 10 miles of road, with over 35 families involved. Already there is a noticeable improvement and great to see so many people getting involved. Thanks to ALL.


Ashwood Residents Association are delighted to have helped secure funding from The Native Tree Grant. The trees have arrived and were planted into their new homes around the estate. Hopefully everyone can enjoy these trees for years to come. Well done to all involved.


The lotto will return after the Covid restrictions are fully lifted. The good news is there is a jackpot of €21,100 just waiting to be won!


This a brilliant idea from Our Wicklow Heritage to get to Know Your 5K. The online course is ideal for anyone who wants to research their local area. Places are limited so early booking is strongly advised!
