The Christmas season is with us once again – for many, a busy but joyous time, filled with family, friends, fun and festive magic.
There is tremendous community spirit throughout our community, and I am sure that this will flourish even more at Christmas when people gather together to share in the festivities.
This spirit is evident in the way that our community and local groups work so hard and give so willingly to help others. I would like to thank you all for the way you contribute to making Kingscourt and the surrounding areas a wonderful place to live, work and visit – not just at Christmas but all year round.
The Christmas season can be difficult for many people, and my thoughts are with them, along with those who live far away and hoping our sons and daughters will make it home safely to be with us this Christmas time.
As 2015 draws to an end, and the dawn of 2016 approaches, as your town councillor, may I wish you all a happy Christmas, health and prosperity in the year ahead.
Cllr. Clifford Kelly
