Ntdwgaa: Recently I visited Carrick-on-Shannon swimming pool or Aura Leisure Centre and resolve to be a regular! Swimming is one of the great fitness/health activities and I can’t recommend it highly enough ph. 071 9662187.
I see there is a growing mood for retaining summer time i.e. not switching the clocks back at the end of October and I would be a supporter of that. I was told that an M.P. in England is pushing a ’Private Member’s Bill’ to that end. I hope it makes progress.
A friend told me of seeing some odd activity and wondering if he would report it to the Gardai. He eventually did whether it was of any help or if his interpretation was right or not he doesn’t know. He felt that if he had the Garda station number in his phone he would be able to report it as he was witnessing it. In these times might it be an idea to have the local Garda station number in ones phone?
I attended the Compromise Rules game on Sat. evening in Croke Park. While the game itself was harmless enough the production, atmosphere and location were great and I was glad I went. It is a great place on a good evening under lights and I hope there is an extension of its ‘under lights’ GAA events.
