Murroe Community Council: We are giving an extension to the time limit for the return of the questionnaire concerning the need for a community car to aid people in our parish in getting to their medical/hospital appointments.  It is vital that we get feedback (i.e. people who are in need of such a service returning the filled forms to the address given) in order to increase the likelihood of obtaining  such a service. If you do not receive a form through your letterbox, there are copies available in the church, post office, Sean English Shop and the Spar Shop. Please fill it in even if you do not require the service now but feel you will want it in the future. We are required to complete the survey before mid-August hence the need to  get people to return the forms soon.

Murroe/Boher Camogie Club: Best of luck to our intermediate team who start their championship campaign against Bruff at 7pm on Saturday in Boher. Next weekend sees a busy weekend for the club with our intermediate team playing Crecora away on Saturday evening, our minor team travelling to Bruff/Kilmallock on Friday evening and our U7s travelling to Kilmallock for a blitz on Saturday. Well done to our minor team who got their season off to a winning start last Tuesday. Best of luck to all our teams. Best of luck also to Seamus Hickey and the Limerick senior hurling team in the All Ireland final.
