Meath Holy Wells - a new book with foreword by Bishop Smith, available at selected shops and by post from N. French 086-8053293 and Meath Archaeological and Historical Society talk on “Meath Holy Wells” by Noel French on this Sunday 11th in Kilskyre Hall at 3.00pm


You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. There are those who give little of the much which they have, and they give it for recognition, and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome. And there are those who have little and give it all. These are the believers in life and the bounty of life and their coffer is never empty. Through the hands of such as these God speaks, and from behind their eyes he smiles upon the earth.                                                                    Kahil Gibran

The Musical Society needs your old "Bling" - On Saturday 27th October, Ratoath Musical Society's entire stock of costumes, was destroyed in a malicious fire at our storage unit. We have spent the last 7 years building up the collection of over 1000 costumes. The Society had planned to use all these and some new pieces to dress the cast of over 100 for the Panto "Red Riding Hood" in January. We are putting out an appeal for any glitzy material, duvet covers, curtains, also any children's clothes, ladies and gents suits, jackets, coats, belts, hats and accessories etc. that you don't want. All donations are most gratefully received by the committee. Drop in your bags to the Venue Theatre box office anytime during opening hours and we will collect them, or if you would like to sponsor a costume for a child in the Panto place your donation in the envelopes that are available at the box office. Leave us your name and contact details as we would like to thank you individually for your support.  Thank you, as always, for your great support.
