The Corduff Raferagh Drama Group’s performance of ‘Where There’s a Will … There’s a … Relative’ is a fundraiser for the ongoing building enhancements taking place at the moment at Corduff Raferagh Community Centre.  For a relatively small addition, size wise, there is a complicated sequence of tasks that needs to be completed, apart from the actual construction itself, the rearranging of water supplies, cable’s, electrics, plumbing, breaking in walls on three levels of the building etc, all behind the scenes work.  We, the Community Association, would like to thank sincerely the Drama Group for their support for this endeavour.    We would also like to acknowledge and thank sincerely all clubs, groups and users of the facilities for their cooperation for the inconvenience caused by the works.  The work is progressing steadily and in the coming weeks we look forward to the completion of this magnificent addition to our Community Centre.  Go Raibh Maith Agat


Corduff Corracharra Group Water Scheme, REMINDER – Tomorrow Monday 15th April, the water supply will be interrupted from  9.30 am – 4.30 pm approx. as a major upgrade to the water main takes place.


National Spring Clean – It’s been a few years now since we participated in the National Spring Clean and the build-up of litter on our roads is very noticeable.  With Covid and general despondency among those who give a little time each year to enhance our area, it is hard to keep going, while others are just serial litterers and don’t give a hoot.  But between now and Saturday 27th April, those who do give a hoot, will be back out on our roads making a difference and enhancing our area by picking up the rubbish that others carelessly throw out of their vehicles.  Bags, Pickers & Gloves are available in the Community Centre reception area for those who wish to participate.   Pick your own road, or pick another road, dedicate an hour or two and you will see an amazing difference.   Yes it is extremely aggravating to see a road cleaned and days later new litter appearing, but that is just pure shame on the litterers.

A skip will be at Corduff Raferagh Community Centre on Saturday April 27th for you to drop off your official bags of litter.


“Ah’ how do you do’ Sir” a new book by John Scully telling “the unfamiliar story of Patrick Byrne, the famed harper from Magheracloone, who is sometimes acknowledged as the last of the genuine Irish Bards.  The book is on sale in Keegan’s or Birdy’s newsagents.


Bishop Joseph Duffy’s latest book: Aghabog Inheritance will be launched on Monday, 29th April at 8pm in St Joseph’s Pastoral Centre. Aghabog Inheritance concentrates on the history of the parish of Aghabog and the 4 surrounding parishes of Currin, Ematris, Killeevan and Kilmore & Drumsnatt, uncovering many interesting historical facts, writings, stories, peoples, places, and saints associated with the parish and townlands in the area covered by the book. All are welcome.

Thank you also to those who gave donations at the gate and the staff of the Mountain Dew for the food and help on the day.
