Farewell to our FutureThis week is a sad time in many households as our students head off to universities and colleges around the country and indeed abroad. It is always emotional as the people of the future head off to pastures new and the family circle for many is changed forever. But there is always a time to go and achieve our individuality and we wish every person leaving the parish all the best in the future.
Sad Day in ArdaraThis Friday is a sad day in Ardara as Ulster Bank on the Diamond closes its doors for the last time in Ardara for well over a hundred years, and it’s sad for all concerned. Many people got their chance in business through the helpful assistance of some of the very nice managers who served there. Our biggest business Gallagher’s Bakery got started in business through the services of the bank, as the late Frank Gallagher used to say, on the wisdom of Paddy Berrick. Many people came to work in the bank and many got married here and are very much part of the community of the region. The bank closes on Friday afternoon, 8th September.
