Opening of New Lakeland Dairies Facility:

Over 80 new jobs are to be created locally with the opening of a new €36m milk drying facility in Bailieborough for Lakeland Dairies.

The farmer-owned co-operative currently employs more than 800 people. The new jobs are expected to come on stream by 2019.

Lakeland Dairies processes milk supplied by 2,400 farmers from both sides of the border with over 1.2 billion litres of farm produced milk annually. The company produces milk powder and butter, exporting products and ingredients to more than 80 countries worldwide.

This is the company’s third milk drying plant at its Bailieborough process centre. The new facility was blessed on Wednesday morning by Fr. Michael Router P.P., the Reverend Ian Horner and Reverend Daryl Edwards and it was officially opened on Thursday last by Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed and is understood to be one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe. During the building process over 180 construction workers were employed.

All in the community would like to sincerely thank local business men Russell and Leslie Waller for donating a new bench at the Town Lake for the people of Bailieborough to enjoy. After vandals destroyed the old bench Michelle Monaghan-Weir contacted local County Councillor, Sarah O’Reilly to offer assistance from Russell and Leslie. Michelle and David painted the bench a fabulous duck egg green to match in with its beautiful surroundings at the Town Lake. We are very grateful to Leslie and Russell Waller Hardware, Cavan Road, Bailieborough for their very kind gesture and hope that the new bench will enjoy many years of longevity!

St. Anne’s Church Re-Opens:

St Annes Church re-opened on Saturday evening last, August 5th for the first time since June 25th. The closure was necessary in order to remove the seats to erect scaffolding, bring in height access equipment and clear the floors for renovation. The overall project is not completely finished. Work will continue on the Gallery, the Children’s Room, St. Josephs Chapel, The Sacristy, the storerooms, the roof and the Parish Centre throughout August and into September. Some minor works will also require completion in the main body of the Church in the coming weeks.

Because work on the roof over the Children’s Room is not yet finished, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will continue to take place in the Oratory of the Community School until further notice.

Thank you to the Community School Board of Management who gave permission to use the Assembly Hall for Saturday evening and Sunday morning Masses, to Sadie Clarke and May Cassidy for their help organising the weekday Masses in the Community Centre and to all of you for your patience and co-operation since June.

Mybologue Historical Society:

The committee are absolutely bowled over by the turnout and response they have had over the weekend. A strong community spirit and willingness of people to volunteer and give of their time is definitely alive and well in the parish of Kilmainhamwood and Moybologue, the surrounding townlands, Bailieboro, Killann, Maudabawn, Nolagh, Shercock and East Cavan in general! A huge thank you to everyone who turned out over the last few days from near and far to volunteer and support. It is all hugely appreciated.

With your help we managed to number all 337 grave-markers, photograph the inscriptions of all 337 grave-markers, and record in excess of 170 of the inscriptions. This was no mean feat in two days!

Thank you to John Tierney from Eachtra Archaeological Projects for leading the project so efficiently, in sunshine and rain, and keeping everyone interested and involved over the two days.

To the volunteers who took part in numbering, photographing and recording; Eamonn Donnelly, Joe Gargan, Amy Gargan, Carmel O’Callaghan, Lloyd Forde, Tony McCabe, Catherine McCormack, Lil McCormack, Patricia Brady, Bernard McEntee and John Joe O’Reilly.

To those who came along and provided information regarding loved ones interred in the graveyard, especially Patricia Brady, who also gave us great information on the two grave-markers made by her grandfather Jemmie O’Reilly from Bailieboro, Rose McCabe and Joe McCabe and William Daly who all gave information about their ancestors buried in the graveyard.

To T.P. Callaghan, Ultan Callaghan and Matt Donnellan who came along and provided invaluable insight into the restoration works on the graveyard in 1988 and local history of the graveyard throughout the years.

To the many people who called in to observe and chat over the last few days, Fr. John Cooney PP, Kathleen Cooney, Terence Dunne, Vincent Meleady, Justin O’Reilly and many others.

Last but not least, the committee wishes to publicly acknowledge the financial support received by means of a very generous financial donation from Matt Carolan, originally from the townland of Srahan next door to the graveyard, and residing for many years in the USA, which enabled this graveyard inscription recording project to take place. Words cannot express our collective gratitude to you Matt, and we hope you take great enjoyment and pride in what you have helped to bring about in your native parish of Moybologue.

The ‘Open Door’ Sessions:

We’re delighted to welcome back local musician Sam Geraghty with his new three-piece band Safari. Safari have a sound that is difficult to describe, one part surf-pop, one part neo-punk, either way their live shows are reported to be well worth experiencing.

Niki Purcell is a landscape artist who is exhibiting at the Bailieborough Library in conjunction with the Bailieborough Mid-Summer Festival. We’re looking forward to her interview with resident interviewer, Elena Duff.

​Paul McCann is singer/songwriter from Co Cavan. He has performed with The Strypes, Sandy Kelly, Duncan Maitland (Picturehouse) and Nelson Bragg (Brian Wilson Band/Beach Boys), among others. In 2015 Paul released his highly-acclaimed debut EP which was titled ‘The Magician’. July 2017 will see the release of his second self-produced and home recorded EP titled ‘Press Record’. Come along to Fox’s Bar and Restaurant, Main St. on Friday, July 21st from 9pm. All welcome.
