crowds of painted lady butterflies and caterpillars on the clumps of ragwort in the bog and along the Canal a heron stood motionless on a group of stones at the water's edge. The water level in the Royal Canal was unusually low, maybe as a result of the continuing drought.
Thank you to Declan Leonard who led the walk and organised the refreshments in Mary Lynch's after the walk.
The Ramblers will take their usual August break so they will next meet on 2 September 2018 for a walk from Newtowncashel to Saint's Island and back.
All Ramblers and their families are wished a very relaxing and enjoyable August break.

LOTTO/BINGO: - takes place in Streete Parish Park Community Centre. Bingo at 8.30p.m. on Monday nights and Lotto during bingo every second Monday night when great prizes are on offer. This is what helps fund our Centre and Sports Complex. It is amazing the amount of use our Centre gets especially this fine weather with outdoor games as can be seen any day you pass. We ask, especially parents support this great Complex and the volunteers who look after it by purchasing a lotto envelope when you see one, it is only €2 for a line, €5 for 3 lines and an annual envelope to make sure you are in each
