The Solas Centre is the finest cancer support building in the country and the people of the south east can be proud in the knowledge that this is due to their support and generosity. Without them, the Solas Centre would not be here.

They aim to provide the best possible cancer support services to the people of the South East of Ireland. With the counselling, relaxation therapies and group support services on offer at the Solas Centre we endeavour to provide cancer patients, their families and carers with a safe place; a place to talk things over, to relax and express emotions.

This centre needs to be funded locally and through these coffee mornings and other fundraising ventures they are vitally important in maintaining the upkeep. It is an invaluable service to both family and patients who‘s family have been touched by cancer. Please support this venture as your support would be greatly appreciated 12th February between 10pm to 12 noon.

WELL DONE SHAMIE - Last week’s Winning Streak show featured local man Seamus Farrell from Killahy. Shamie handled himself well in the limelight of the T.V. cameras and Gerri May. In the first part of the show he won himself a car (Toyota Yaris) to the value of 15k and then in the team task he collected 12k along with all the other players. When it came to spinning the wheel Shamie performed like a true thoroughbred coming with a late flourish to pass the post first and spin the wheel. All of Mullinavat had their legs hands and everything else crossed in the hope Shamie could hit the jackpot. Shamie spun the wheel with such vigour that we thought the 9 oclock news would have be deferred for 15 minutes until the wheel stopped. It eventually came to rest in the 25k slot and so the Killahy man had conducted a good day’s work.

Looking at the audience a great day was had by all and so 7 years after his father Tommy had spun the wheel Shamie had completed his day in the sun. Once again congratulations and happy driving and spending.
