Turning of the Year

The year has turned towards the fall and the main indicator is the busy sound of the harvesting as the giant machines devour fields of golden grain. The church field was cut, straw gathered and grain removed to storage in a few hours on Saturday evening. It left behind the gorgeous smell of freshly cut straw and a field which had a number one cut.

Village work party

Great progress has been made in the last few weeks on recovering the village environment from the spurt of growth early this year. The footpath along the Marlfield Hurling Club has been given a nice trim and swept. The Pondside road has also had the attention of the shovel, brush and clipper and looking good. The work area for the next few Monday evenings is the road from Patricks Well Cross to the Well and it is all hand on deck. Noel Buckley is co-ordinating the work programme and the working party meet at 7pm at the cross. Bring a hi vis vest, something to work with and a pair of gloves as the nettles are viscous.


Work is in full flow at the lodges inside the estate entrance and a full scale sympathetic renovation is planned. The entrance lodges are one of the finest examples of their type in this part of Ireland and when restored will add to the visual ambiance of our fair village.
