Happy Birthday Pauline – The Community Association and indeed all members of our community would like to wish Pauline Reilly a very Happy Special Birthday this week (it’s a roundy one!).  Pauline’s dedication and hard work in the Community Centre is apparent every time we visit the building for a meeting, a class, an event etc.  Pauline goes above and beyond to ensure everyone has a positive experience when they walk through the door and has been doing this quietly for years, without fuss and spending hours ensuring everything is in order.  Hope you have a great Birthday Pauline, enjoy the celebrations.


TFI Local Link Cavan Monaghan – Great News – From Monday 24th July 2023 a new Local Link Bus service No. 171 from Shercock to Dundalk will be launched.  The Route starts in Shercock via Corduff Junction (Corduff Cross) – Carrickmacross – Inniskeen – Dundalk Train Station – Dundalk Bus Station.  Five buses will run at intervals to Dundalk and back, see timetable for exact information.  This Regular Rural Service operates on a daily basis – Monday to Saturday. These local bus services are low cost accessible public transport services for anyone wishing to travel and are truly great value.

Perhaps if enough people from the Corduff Raferagh area e-mail the National Transport Authority at to suggest that the bus could come to the Community Centre Carpark it would be more convenient for parking your vehicle or getting dropped off.

The Bus Éireann route 166, Dundalk – Shercock – Cavan will continue to run for the meantime too on Mon, Wed & Fri.
