Election time again!
As is our policy, we will not be carrying any political notes until after the General Election on 8th February next.

Regarding our Water Supply queries in last week's issue, it was very disappointing that not one local representative saw fit to provide any answers - we would have made an exception for this particular item, had that information been forthcoming this week.

However, some readers who had dealings with Irish Water were able to confirm that our supply is once again from Leixlip, after only two weeks from Ballymore Eustace.

Regarding the strong chlorine element, no one is explaining why there appears to be a much greater content in the supply than we were used to.

Storm Brendan blustered in last Monday, and while thankfully nobody was injured, there was visible destruction near the Paddocks where a huge amount of scaffolding came crashing to the ground.

Happy Birthday to Noel who celebrated his big day at Scoil Mhuire (Airlie/Woodview Hgts), last week. Balloons all over the place, and we heard that a special song was composed in his honour. That's how to celebrate!

Great preservation work being done on the church ruins in St. Catherines above. Hopefully something will be done soon to protect what is left of St. Finian's ruins in Esker.
