Condolences to the Cooney family Carrickartagh on the passing of their mum and grandmother Katie.  Katie as we all know enjoyed the craic and banter, she was an extremely witty lady, small in stature but big in heart.  To Noel, Mary, Ann & Maeve and the entire Cooney family we extend sincere sympathies from the Corduff Raferagh Community.  May Katie rest in eternal peace.


CoRa Hub – Thank you to everyone who participated in the photo shoot last Friday at Corduff Raferagh Community Centre in relation to the promotion of the facilities available in CoRa Hub.  We’re looking forward to seeing the finished product.  The company tasked with Friday’s mission were very impressed with our facilities, the warm welcome they received and the overall enthusiasm from all who participated, so Thank You very much to everyone..


Corduff Corracharra Group Water Scheme – Please check your water supply for bursts or leaks after the cold snap.  The water level in the reservoir is dropping suggesting there are major leaks in the system.


A Wolf Moon – This week a Wolf Moon will appear on Thursday night,  Jan 25th.  The Almanac explains “that January’s full Moon came to be known as the Wolf Moon because wolves were more likely to be heard howling at this time. It was traditionally believed that wolves howled due to hunger during winter, but we know today that wolves howl for different reasons. Howling and other wolf vocalizations are used to define territory, locate pack members, reinforce social bonds, and coordinate hunting.”
