Black Cat wants to go home: A healthy, glossy black cat is trying to live with us but we already have two! Please share this as clearly this is someone’s pet and a gorgeous house cat used to people. We have been feeding it since it first appeared on Thursday night. Contact Mary Flynn, Main Street, 0873117272 Emyvale Tidy Towns AGM - 28/1/19 @ 8pm. Venue - Emyvale Leisure Centre.  New members most welcome. Christmas Coffee Morning: Our Wednesday Morning Tea/Coffee meeting resumed on Wednesday, January 16th in the usual place - The Village Kitchen - at the usual time - 10.30am and as usual - everyone enjoyed the event. A few new citizens attended which delighted us as the more the merrier. There was plenty of chatting and then we had a bit of fun with a Name the Faces test and small prizes for the members of the winning table - all in a bit of fun. We continue again next Wednesday and our thanks to Audrey, Michelle and Áine for their kindness and excellent way they look after us. There will be an interesting talk for us and hope to see you there. Community Draft Plan: The Emyvale Development Association met on Wednesday January 9th to draw up a response to the Council’s Community Development Draft Plan. Some of the suggestion in the plan are excellent and we look forward to action being taken on the implementation. The Committee also discussed a number of these in more depth and considered ideas for developing these to benefit the community. More on that later. However there were also some suggestion that would cause some concern and pose difficulties for aspects of our community and these will need to be teased out more before we make a final decision on our acceptence or rejection. It is an exciting time for Emyvale and a great opportunity for the area to get back some of the fantastic community spirit that was so evident during the 80’s amd 90’s. We must remember, however, that Emyvale has seen great changes over the past two decades and it will demand a real commitment from our residents to develop a pride of place among our inhabitants. So we all have a wonderful challenge and all will benefit if we do this together and do it right. Emyvale Tidy Towns held an open meeting last week which was well attended and was well worth while. Proposals were discussed and opinions given and shared. A further open meeting is planned for Monday Feb 4th. Veritas Closure The announcement recently that the Veritas Company is to close three of its ten branches came as a big shock to both staff and customers. Sligo, Naas and Monaghan will cease trading on Thursday 31st January 2019. The Monaghan shop opened in Park St. on February 11th 2005. Two of the original staff, Mary Flynn and Geraldine Watterson are still there, along with Roisin Connolly, Karen Watterson and Sadhbh O’Callaghan and all the staff are well known locally. They invite you to visit the shop anytime between the 28th-30th January, from 10am-5pm for their Customer Appreciation Days. They will be serving tea and refreshments and giving out small spot prizes to thank customers, neighbours, friends and family for all their support over the past 14 years.
