CANON O’DOHERTY’S GOLDEN JUBILEE CELEBRATION: On Friday, June 26th the staff and pupils of Our Lady’s Meadow made a presentation to Canon O’ Doherty to celebrate his Golden Jubilee. Each class made cards and pictures for the occasion and a television was presented by pupils to the Canon. This was to celebrate both his Golden Jubilee and also to acknowledge the contribution that ‘Father’ makes to the school community by his daily visits and interaction with staff and pupils alike.

DURROW COMMUNITY COUNCIL: Senior Citizens Annual Outing – Plans for this year’s outing are in progress and so far it looks like we will visit Newbridge Silverwear, Powerscourt House and Gardens and on to Enniskerry. A more detailed plan will be announced in the near future.
DURROW TIDY TOWNS: The committee wish to remind residents to continue to keep your own areas swept and litter free, also to help with the watering of flower beds, hanging bags etc… that are in your area over the summer months. A special effort is needed to have Durrow looking its best for the Scarecrow Festival when a large number of tourists will visit our town. We get so many good comments from visitors to the town – it’s very encouraging. So keep up the good work, your efforts are very much appreciated by the Tidy Towns committee, local residents and visitors alike.
