Missing memorabilia. If anyone knows the whereabouts of the Emyvale Tidy Town's Certificates from the late 1960's and 1970's, please contact Nancy McCluskey on 047-87230. These certificates had been framed and were on display in the foyer of Emyvale Leisure Centre. They are part of the village history and its important that they are found.
Shop Local. During the last ‘Lockdown’ I posted a piece on Emyvale.net encouraging people to shop locally and to remember the local businesses from whom we could get the essentials and indeed the non-essentials when items were walking off the shelves due to panic buying and then to also remember those who used the situation to up their prices and make a better profit when money was scarce due to closure of other businesses. Here we are again urging you to ‘SHOP LOCALLY’ and support local businesses. We need to keep the money in our own locality, we need to ensure that our local shops can survive and the only way we can do that is to buy our goods from them. At the moment there are thing we would like to buy but cannot because those shops are not allowed to open and so we are encouraged to go online. The ‘click and collect’ method. That’s fine if we go ‘click and collect’ as it means that the shop or business must be local if you can go to collect. However beware of the ‘click and delivery’ method as many of those businesses are not local and some not even Irish. Some are from other countries, who have hired out warehouses from which they can deliver the goods ordered online. Where you might expect the delivery in a day or two, as they might promise, it could take over a week to reach you and Covid is used as the cause of the delay rather than the fact that the item has to be sent from abroad first of all. Make sure you know the origin of what you order. Remember every Euro spent locally helps the local economy and keeps people in a job. We have a duty to ensure that we do what we can to help our own.
