BRUREE NOTES 12/2/2012


Limerick County Council has been doing road works around the parish in recent months. In the village, the wall to the west of the village has been repaired and resurfacing has taken place at Railway Mews. Major road re-alignment has taken place at Rockhill Cross and this is now finished. Junction layout changes have also taken place at O’Rourke’s Cross. These badly needed works will hopefully make things safer for motorists.


Winners of last week’s 45 Drive were Tom O’Rourke and John Moloney and Katherine O’Regan and Sean Blake with seven games. Raffle prizes went to Noreen Hayes, Katherine O’Regan, Martin Carroll and Ann Potter. The 45 Drive continues in the Community Centre every Tuesday night, starting at 8.30 pm sharp.
