Local school news – well done to Ms. Fox’s 6th Class from Stamullen NS who took part in the Peace Proms Reimagined during June. Congratulations to Daniel Negry Smith from Gormanston College who got the call from Ireland’s U-16 soccer team to join their summer training camp this year. Daniel is a midfielder who plays his club football for Bohemians.
First Communion ceremonies will take place in the parish in the Autumn (subject to Government guidelines). First Communion for children from Stamullen N.S. will take place on Saturday the 9th of October. Confirmation will take place on Friday the 20th of August.
Outdoor dining has been gaining momentum during June in Stamullen, helped by the sunshine. The City North’s Delvin Terrace is open daily from breakfast to dinner and has a new fairy garden for the smaller guests (01-690-6666 or email@example.com for bookings). The Huntsman/Gibney’s has a large new beer garden with full menu for lunch and dinner.
The council has upgraded the paving at Whytes’s and the Daily Bread Cafe (open 8a.m. until 4p.m. Monday to Saturday) to enable outdoor service from those village venues. Whyte’s is continuing pints and cocktails delivery (order via 01-8412612) and their beer garden, including the charmingly named Bottle Lane, is open from noon every day of the week and they’re looking forward to resuming food service from the 5th of July.
St Mary’s Baton Twirlers are back for existing members outdoors since the end of June. Queries about new members should be sent to their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/119717341376855/user/100007061529293/
