Kilcummin Notes 01/05/2020


Sympathy is extended to the family of the late Dan Healy, Rockfield, Tralee Rd. and late of Dooneen. May he rest in peace


An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar has launched a new Campaign - In This Together - which aims to help everyone in Ireland to Stay Connected, Stay Active, and look after their Mental Wellbeing throughout the Covid-19 Emergency. The Campaign encourages everyone to pick a new activity which could help them to feel a little healthier or a little better as we deal with Covid-19. It signposts useful advice to help people of every age group to cope with the ongoing restrictions, whether they are looking after children, dealing with self-isolation, preparing for the Leaving Cert, or coping with cabin fever. In This Together will offer regular videos, ideas and activities for people of all ages throughout the Emergency, over social media, through our partners in the media and promoted by the Community Call Forums which have been set up across Ireland. All this information is being made available on, on your local authority website, on social media, television, radio and newspapers throughout the Emergency and you can find details of local initiatives on your local authority website.

Bags and litter pickers are available from Tony O’Connor at 087 6258641 if required. We would also, ask people who bring their dogs out for a walk to clean up after them and to respect other road / footpath users with children, buggys etc. Take care everyone.
