Good Luck.

Best of luck to all students from the parish who are sitting their Leaving Certificate this week. Young people preparing for exams haven’t had it easy these past few months so we wish them well going forward and urged them to do their best, that’s all that is required from them.

Assistive Technology.

A new kettle designed by Uccello Designs for people with restricted mobility strength, has been launched and is in high demand due to its design. Pouring hot water safely for people with such problems like osteoporosis arthritis in their hands for example can be extremely dangerous as they find it very difficult to pour hot water from a normal kettle, but thanks to this invention, they can now pour without spillage. Designed to help with many other medical conditions or disabilities, the kettle is designed to tilt and pour so the user doesn’t have to pick the kettle up. For further information visit customercare@uccellodesigns.com.
