Birdie had to get the winter woollies out this past week!
Storm Arwen blew in last weekend, and we certainly felt the cold. It must be very tough in all the schools, which are required to keep classrooms ventilated and windows open. Spotted a couple of 'onions' on the way to school one morning - turned out they were just two lads with layers upon layers upon layers, to keep them warm!
Children's TV news programme RTE news2day, visited Scoil Mhuire, Woodview, were the boys and girls volunteered to demonstrate how antigen tests are performed. They also showed how some outdoor games are played in the present times - very impressive!
Hedge cutting on the Millstream Road this week revealed a huge amount of shredded black plastic sacks. Who could those people be who are dumping their bin bags into the shrubbery along here? Shame on every one of them.
The House of Christmas Lights in Weston Park is proving a great attraction for young and old. The show is on the road from 4.30pm daily. This year's donations go to Jigsaw - dealing with young people's mental health.
The Late Late Toy Show did very well with fundraising once again. Despite all the problems in Ireland, we can be very generous where it is needed.
Happy 11th Birthday
on 7th December
to Saoirse O'Driscoll
May your special day be filled with fun and joy.
Lots of love from Mom & Dad, your brother Riain, Geri and all the family.
