Lusk Community Council wishes to give an early reminder to all groups,
clubs and parish organisations that now is the time to consider their
choice of entry to the 2011 Lusk St Patrick's Day Parade. That leaves
approximately 6 weeks to get the show on the road and have all the
bits and pieces in place for March 17th.

We would be very grateful if last years winners, in each category,
would return the cups, trophies or shields to Sean Clare or any
committee member of Lusk Community Council before Sunday 13th March.
We always need stewards on the day of the parade and if you would like
to assist in this task please make contact with Sean or any committee
member. All offers of help would be very welcome on this day of
community celebration.

Some places still available in Skerries community college in Computer, Digital Photography, Dressmaking, Spanish, Irish, Motorbike Maintenance, Mixed Boot Camp Keep Fit and Fundance Aerobics classes. Contact Teresa Carroll 8490011 

Lusk Parish Pastoral Council wishes to advise parishioners not to
leave any valuable items on open display in their cars in the vicinity
of the church as there have been a number of thefts from parked cars in recent weeks.
