How is it going?
We can only hope and pray that we are in for better days ahead. Most of us are doing our best - picking ourselves up and struggling on. It is not easy for anybody, young or old.

Modern technology is wonderful!
Zoom seems to be playing a big part in school lessons these days. No doubt it is invaluable to secondary school pupils as they prepare for important exams, but even the little ones are familiar with it.

We spotted Simon Connaughton's photo of a frozen-over Grand Canal last weekend, on twitter.

Tidy Towns Competition back for 2021!
We hear that the annual Tidy Towns competition is back after missing out on 2020 due to Covid. It must be said that even without any competitions, the Lucan group and indeed many local residents have been busy looking after their areas.

You can't beat the old games!
Following our photo of a local Ringboard Team in last week's issue, Maria Murphy sent us a picture of her board which was purchased in Clery's Sports Department at Christmas 1976, and still in use hanging on the back of her kitchen door today.
The stories this board could tell!
