TIME TO PLAN FOR DARK EVENINGS: When the days shorten and the nights lengthen, especially from October, the present time is opportune to plan for some indoor activities which have positive benefits. Mental stimulation, which is not strenuous, like learning to play Bridge is a very beneficial activity. Bridge lessons, ten in total, will commence in St. Eoghan’s Centre, Kilmoganny on Wednesday 4th October at 8.00 p.m. No previous card playing experience is required. For further information contact 087 – 2257498.
