Columba McVeigh: Another attempt is being made by the Commission to search for the remains of Columba McVeigh. We are told that Columba, as a young man of 19 years of age, was executed by the IRA and his body was buried in a place in Bragan Bog. Irrespective of the reason for the killing, the fact remains that it has been his family who have suffered over the years since then and they certainly were innocent people. His mother, who died eleven years ago died of a broken heart as all she wanted in life was to get Columba’s body back for a christian burial. His siblings are still suffering the mental torture of not knowing where their brother lies and they too are only interested in getting the body to inter him beside his loved ones in Donaghmore as a christian. His brother Oilver, a well know photographer and a friend of mine, has made a public appeal to anyone who might have any information that might help make this a positive dig to find Columba, to come forward and get that information to the Commission, who are organising the dig. The informnation can be given in secrecy and confidentially to a priest, doctor, friend anyone you can trust and they will relay the information to the Commission, with no questions as to source. I would encourage anyone who might have information which would help find Columba to get that information to the Commission. Cycling Danger: A number of people have contacted the site re. youths cycling at high speed on the Village footpaths. The older age group are worried that they will be knocked down and injured and indeed if any person is contacte by one of these there will be serious injuries. Of course my thinking is that it is illegal to cycle on the footpaths and I am aware that the Gardai have been contacted about the matter.
