Local Link

The local link will start in Kilbrin from next Friday 3rd August. This is a brand new initiative and it will provide a bus service to pick people up at their homes and return them to their homes a few hours later. This is open to everyone in the parish and it will run every Friday evening to and from the village. We would urge anyone interested in this service to contact any of the following numbers, 087 2741624 or 086 3522411 or 087 4116060 to register your intent to use it. We, at the community council, will be listening to users of this service over the coming weeks and months to get feedback on what you wish to do in the community centre or elsewhere in the village on Friday evenings going forward. We will endeavour to facilitate every request where possible so if it is a game of cards, music, a sing song, dancing or just a social cup of tea or pint please let us know. This is a very good initiative and its main purpose is to give people the opportunity to get out of the house and socialise for a few hours and get home safely. We hope that there is a very good uptake for the service and we will be contacting households in the parish over the coming days to ensure everyone is aware of it.

Lackeel Cemetery

Work is continuing to erect gates and pillars on the entrance to Lackeel Cemetery. These gates are over 100 years old and have been restored to their original state. We would like to thank Jim Buckley and Ronan Kearney for their excellent work in this project. We hope that this will be ready for opening in August and will let you know once a set date is available.

Playground Refurbishment

We are arranging a special meeting of the community council for the second Tuesday of August. We would like to invite all parents of children that use the playground to attend. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the best way to refurbish the playground following the grant approval to do so. Remember the playground is there for you and your children so please come along and get your suggestions aired.

Community Centre Refurbishment

Work on replacing the community centre roof will begin shortly. All this work is to bring the complex to the highest standard and it is going to enhance your community centre.

Kilbrin Social Club

Complimentary with any party booking is a champagne reception, themed party balloons, bouquets on all tables as well as all tables being decorated with candles and table linen.

For Oige.

The For Oige club has been ran in Kilbrin over the last number of years with weekends away, gatherings and had many events for our teenagers. We would like to thank Catriona and Edel for organising all of these events and for their dedication over these years. They are however moving on and as a community we must decide if we want to keep this very valuable club going. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Catriona on 0871245472. Without volunteers at this juncture this club will cease to exist and that would be a great shame so we would ask everyone to give it your consideration.
