Happy Gardeners

The question mark after the name just shows that it doesn’t matter if you consider yourself a happy gardener or not, you’ve probably got a garden and you probably like the chat, to drink tea and to eat cake! So if the hat fits, come along to the next meeting on Saturday, 23rd March taking place at Dana’s house. Contact Dana for directions on 086 3124353 or for more information about Happy Gardeners? contact either Paula, 086 1996039 or Janice, 087 2147453.

Open to the public, this is an integration event to encourage both locals and immigrants to socialise together in an informal relaxed atmosphere while giving our local artists, both Irish and foreigner, the opportunity to showcase their work, some of which may well be for sale on the day.

Coming soon

With help from a neighbour I’m currently collecting contact numbers of Killargue residents who have young(er) family members living and working abroad. I thought it might be interesting to hear the stories of what they’re up to/what life and work is like for them and maybe something about the country they are now living in. If I’ve got your contact details in this regard then I’ll be on the phone in the not too distant future..........but why wait for me to call you? Pick up the phone and tell me how your “Killargue Kid” is getting along!

Without you...
