Hi All,
Do you know your Eircode? I will admit, I don’t. An ambulance was called to a house in the parish recently. Ambulance delayed as no one knew what the Eircode is or where to find it. I would suggest we all l earn our Eircodes and put them up on a prominent place in our homes where everyone can see them. Pat.

Dromleigh N.S Congratulations to the fourth, fifth and sixth class pupils who have been chosen as the best overall school in the Cork County Council and Skibbereen Heritage Centre Local History Project. During the first term the children researched local stories from 1916 to 1922 and came up with some amazing often unknown tales from the era. Many were incidents from the aftermath of Kilmichael Ambush but others covered a wide area around Mid and West Cork. The result was a series of wonderful projects and stories. The school got a surprise visit from the Mayor of Cork, Patrick Gerard Murphy on his last day in office to receive the prize. It was a great honour for the school and its pupils to win such a prestigious competition. We wish to acknowlege and thank all of those in the Kilmichael Community who reached out to us with their stories. They will now be archived and will be available for future generations to read. Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
