Friends of Kiltoghert: A meeting was called arising from the original gathering of interested parties on the 1st July in Cryan’s where people showed their support and interest in obtaining the old creamery in Kiltoghert and buildings from what was Connacht Gold and is now called Aurivo in the hope that it would be handed back to the farming community with the idea of restoration and museum, interpretive centre and exhibition area. The following were elected: Chairperson: Padraig Gilbride, Vice Chair: John Flynn, Secretary: Maura Murphy, Assistant Sec Tom Padden, Joint Treasurers Jimmy Gralton and John McGrath, PRO: Vincent O’Dowd & Assistant PRO Maura Murphy. The Mission Sttement of the group. To preserve and interpret the history of Kiltoghert Creamery and Co-Op, to collect and preserve the artefacts and information which pertains to all social, cultural and commercial history to the area and to display such artefacts as are required for exhibition purposes.

Cemetery Sunday: Big turn out again this year. Our thanks to Father McGrath for his prayers and to all who contributed to the occasion. Well done to the stewards who kept the traffic in check despite those who simple fail to see reason when it is presented to them. Thanks to all who contributed to the collection and I can assure you that the money will be well spent.
