Recent News Items!

St. Patrick's Festival
We gather that the Community Council are organising a St. Patrick's Day Parade. This would of course duplicate the event advertised in the last Bruff Cultural and Arts Newsletter as quoted below
"Plans for next Year
Early in the New Year we will have a meeting to develop and plan our projects for 2007. We will issue invitations to other individuals and groups to join with us in this planning process. Our plans
include an open air dancing platform/stage for the Grove, celebrations for St. Patrick’s weekend and of course the Summer Festival"

who had made plans, but have no wish to clash, so they have cancelled their arrangements: see Cultural and Arts Society news below!

Changing Chips!
Rumour has it that the Snack Bar (Anthony O'Connor's) is changing hands. We will see what the new owners bring to the culinary scene in Bruff! Maybe soon we will have an Indian Takeaway to add to the ethnic mix!

Bruff and Drink Driving
Bruff entered the national debate this week with Derry O'Meara, local publican being interviewed on Limerick 95fm. Local publican Derry, talked about the Bruff pubs initiative with a courtesy bus. Three pubs (Derry's Bar, Clancys and Dave Clarkes) have combined to provide a free courtesy bus. He indicated that maybe a second bus would soon be provided.

Drains, Mains and Sewers!
INSITUFORM an English firm has been working in the Main Street this last week. They are using high tech equipment to survey the main sewers. It also looks as if work may begin on the water treatment works with activity near the entrance
