Heritage Notes - 12 November 2010

Heritage Nomination

Just a note to tell people that our heritage group has been nominated as one of three finalists in the Heritage and Culture section of this year’s county-wide community awards. We don’t want to blow any trumpets but are honoured to be included in the final three from an initial list of fourteen and it’s que sera, sera after that. The awards night itself is scheduled for Friday, November 26th at Clonea Strand Hotel and we hope to see a few other Cappoquin representatives there on the night. Our next project is the imminent launch of a lovely set of local snow-themed Christmas cards, and we hope to have these in the shops within a week or so.

On the subject of heritage, best wishes to Julian Walton on his talk at Cappoquin Community Centre this coming Friday evening, November 12th. Julian has been a great friend to Cappoquin history, and to Waterford history, over the years and his talk on the history of Dromana and its resident families should be of great interest.

Some Reminders

Just some further reminders of two news items of recent weeks. If you are interested in an allotment in Cappoquin, growing your own vegetables etc, please contact Cindy 086–0586608 at Civic Link or Joe at 058–54045 for full details of this great opportunity. Also, the Twinning Group is heading for Chanat La Mouteyre on the weekend before St Patrick’s Day 2011 and there are still some places available. For little more than the cost of the airfare and train, this is a tremendous opportunity to see France as the French see it, and to meet some French people who know more about Cappoquin than most of us do ourselves. For anyone interested, contact Keith at 087-9054068 or Kevin from Civic Link at 087-6501042 for details
