Bluebells: A quantity of 200 Bluebell bulbs has arrived from Mr. Middleton, Dublin. It was decided at a recent Emybelles meeting to plant these bulbs underneath trees  on the riverbank in Emyvale village. With the assistance of a worker from the local Community Employment Scheme, it is intended to plant the Bluebells on Wednesday morning next 23rd November at 11.00am. It isn't a friendly fairy that made this project happen but that of Emybelles Women's Group who have a sense of good community spirit and wish to make a contribution to the environment. The bluebell is a splendid little flower and as the name suggests, produces lovely blue bells, loves the shade. They will make a good splash of colour in the merry month of May. And so it came to pass - originally intended to happen on Monday but the ground was rock hard and it was impossible to plant the bulbs. However it was a bit softer on Wednesday and James Skinnader from the CES helped to dig the soil and plant the bulbs. There to oversee the process were Anna Watterson, Nancy McCluskey and Geraldine Watterson - Belles all. We look forward to Spring to see the Bluebells brighten the banks, of the river of course and our spirits too.
