Safety Improvement Works on the Virginia Road:

 Funding of €50,000 has been granted for safety improvement works on the Virginia Road, Bailieborough—which is a treacherous part of the R178 road. There are two Churches and a secondary school on this short stretch of road, which many drivers approach at high speed. Cavan County Council understood the concerns of the residents, including St. Anne’s Church, and submitted the application for road safety measures. We are delighted that this application was successful, receiving the second highest allocation of funding in the county. Thank You to Councillor Sarah O’Reilly, Cavan County Council, the Road Safety Authority, An Garda Siochana and the residents of the Virginia Road for working hard on this project.

Bailieborough Christmas Lights:

There was great excitement amongst the huge crowd gathered at the Market Square and on Main St., on Saturday evening last with the traditional ‘Switching –On’ of the Bailieborough Christmas Lights. Christmas Carols and music was provided by the Bailieborough School of Music, children from the local schools and local choristers, ‘Hardtimes Chorus’.

Santa and his Elves arrived on his sleigh (Santa’s sleigh was driven in by Martin McGuinness and this sleigh was made by Richard Kinnear and stored and repainted by Peter Reilly from Active Agri) to the great amazement of all the young children present. Santa was accompanied by the Active Agri Tractor Parade of Lights, whose tractors and other vehicles, were well turned out for the Christmas Run.

This year, Mr William Townley turned on the lights on—for those in the Community that are too young to remember, Willie put up the lights and looked after them for between 25 to 30 years. This is Bailieborough’s way of saying ‘Thanks’ to him and his son Thomas for all the years of hard work and to acknowledge the fact Willie and his generation volunteered in their community and that is not lost in today’s world! Everything went to plan, when all the dazzling lights lit up, to give the town a very Christmassy feel. The children and their parents, then had the opportunity to visit Santa and his Elves in his Grotto.

This year’s lights are magnificent, with everyone commenting on how great they look! It would be well worth one’s while to come along to the town, just to see this terrific display.
