Sherry's Factory: A Mass for deceased staff members of Sherry's Rossmore Furniture Factory, Scotstown will take place on Tuesday 26th November at 8pm in Urbleshanny Chapel. This will be followed by refreshments in Scotstown Complex, and a talk by Patsy Brady on 60 years of history of the factory since 1959. This event is a free night for everyone, and a chance for family members of the deceased and former employees to catch up and reminisce together; everyone welcome. Sports Grants: The Sports Grants allocations were announced this am and some local organisations are among the successful applicants. From experience we can be confident that this funding will bring further benefits to the North Monaghan area and is well deserved by the volunteers of the various recipient organisations. Cllr Paudge Connolly has informed me that there was a huge number of applicants which means that the available monies had to be divided on a greater number reducing the maximum that any group could get but he welcomes the allocations which are testament to the great work on a voluntary basis in our communities. The local recipients are: Truagh Gaels CLG. €27,959 Clubhouse upgrade Entrance Donagh Development €3,635 Emyvale/Truagh gun club €3,635 Truagh Special Needs €5,193 St Mellans Handball club €8,991 Glaslough Development €16,600 There is a detailed Scoring System for applications and the full scoring system for the Sports Capital Programme (SCP) was published in advance of assessment work commencing. Scores were awarded based on the following criteria:- Likelihood of increasing participation Whether the proposed facility would be shared with other users Level of socio-disadvantage in the area Technical merits of the project Level of own funding being provided towards the proposed facility Level of SCP funding received by the applicant over the last 10 years In general, the poorest scoring applications tended to be in non-disadvantaged areas, have received reasonably significant SCP funding in recent years or did not demonstrate how the project would significantly increase participation. An appeals system was introduced for the first time under the 2017 round of the programme. All unsuccessful applicants (those who failed to obtain an adequate score and those deemed invalid) will again be given the opportunity to appeal the outcome of the assessment process under this round and all relevant organisations will be contacted in this regard in the coming weeks. Furthermore, a review of the operation of the SCP will commence shortly. Part of the review will include consideration of the timing of the next round but it is anticipated that the SCP will be open for applications again in the New Year. CHRISTMAS VIDEO MESSAGE: Loneliness and isolation kills the most vulnerable in our society - but there is another silent killer that we can't see or smell - carbon monoxide poisoning. Please share and spread this Christmas message about caring for the elderly people living alone this Christmas. We all deserve to be looked after. https://www.facebook.com/GillChimneyServices/videos/428613601184655/?q=gill%20chimney%20services&epa =SEARCH_BOX Two Good News Stories: 1. Cllr. Paudge Connolly has welcomed the wonderful news that Carrickroe Village is to receive €73,593.55 under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme 2019 to develop a playground in the Village. This is terrific news for Carrickroe as it is a very proactive place and a developing place with a great community spirit where everyone puts their shoulder to the wheel when there is something to be done and where volunteers are plentiful when a community action is begun. I know that the Playground will be a fantastic addition to amentiies and will be enjoyed by the ever growing young population. 2 I was watching ‘All Hands On Deck’ on RTE 1 on Sunday night and who did I see but Sean and Maureen McAllister, from Glaslough, on the Cruise ship and they were involved in most aspects of the show, which was presented by Francis Brennan. He enjoyed their company and had them doping all sorts of things like eating Pizza, taking a Sauna and going on a tour of Helsinki. They were pictured taking part in other On Board activity and it was obvious that they were enjoying themselves immensely. Watching them one would just love to go on a cruise. Well done Sean and Maureen. Loss of Garda Station: Rebuild: Cllr Paudge Connolly has informed us that Monaghan County Council has, at their Monday meeting, unanimously adopted his proposal: "That Monaghan Co Co calls on the Minister for Justice, Charles Flanagan T D, to ensure that the OPW take immediate steps to ensure that Emyvale Garda Station is reconstructed as a functioning Garda Staation as a matter of urgency." Every effort has to be made to impress upon the authorities that the rebuild of the Emyvale Station is an urgent necessity and we thank Monaghan Council for leading the way on this. Lets hope that they are listened to. Brexit: Will someone please solve a problem I have -- Britain decided to leave the EU. The EU is made up of so many states. When Britain leaves the EU there has to be a border between Britain and the EU Deal or No-Deal. We are going to be at the coalface of part of the Border between Britain and the EU. We did not ask for it, we did not agree with it, we did not support it and we did not want it. Now extra customs and extra Gardai will be needed and extra financial supports for various aspects of our economy has to made available AND THE IRISH TAXPAYER HAS TO PAY FOR IT???!!! We had to bail out the banks and we are still trying to pay that off and now we must add in the billions that are needed because Britain decides to leave the EU. Should these extra funds not be paid for by the EU? Surely all the other states within the EU must pay their share? Surely Britain should pay for the costs of them leaving the EU? Surely we, the tax payers of this country, should not be expected to pay all these costs just because we happen to have a part of the border between Britain and the EU? Then we have the Carbon Tax. If I thought that this Government was going to use every cent raised by the Carbon Tax to fund projects to reduce our footprint I would be a little happier but only a little as I fear that this Government will squander the money as they have shown how with the Childrens Hospital, Broadband and other major projects while at the same time they have been unable to improve the Health Services. Growing numbers on trolleys, growing lists of patients waiting an appointment, and, let’s face it, hundreds dying because of delayed appointments and overcrowding in wards and Accident and Emergency units and this Government stands idly by instead of getting nurses, doctors and consultants hired to attend the sick. Once again rural Ireland, and I mean the people who live in rural Ireland, will suffer most from the increases in fuel and taxes. We have further to travel and more often and we have to supply our own transport. We need to heat our homes but now pay more for that too. So we are going to be poorer and €2 extra per week will not rescue the thousands from the poor conditions in which they have to survive nor even leave them as they are – in dire need. Significant and essential money for our own citizens will now be spent to control the division between Britain and the EU instead of being spent improving life for our own citizens. To me there is something all wrong with that and I know in which direction I point the finger. Can someone explain? -- No one seems to have the answer but many agree that the Government is going to make us pick up this tab too. Beginning to use Computer, iPad/tablet or SmartPhone? Or need tuition in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Access? 1 to 1 private lessons in your own home. Personalised tutoring from a qualified and experienced private tutor available in Co. Monaghan - contact 047 86416 or 085 1562447 for more details
