For the last 67 years, Castlepollard’s firefighters have been risking life and limb for the people of north Westmeath, but most locals would probably be surprised to hear that their remit now extends into healthcare.
As well as their renowned 24-hour fire-and-rescue service, the station’s nine firefighters (station officer Steve Owens, substation officer Dave Cooney, Pat Nea, Alfie Devine, Noel Morgan, Derek Cheevers, Anthony Nea, Martin Farrell and John Devine) also provide emergency medical assistance.
Fully-trained as Cardiac First Responders (C.F.R.) and Emergency First Responders (E.F.R.), Castlepollard’s Fire Service works in cooperation with the National Ambulance Service and local G.P.s, such as Dr. Noel Cogan.

A major addition to this year’s Wexford Opera Festival, which will see an early 1900s carnival coming to Wexford quays, complete with giant Ferris wheel and carousel, is expected to attract 80,000 people into Wexford.
The organizers of the 1900s Carnivàle event, Lantern Events, based in Wexford, have said it will complement the Spiegeltent Festival perfectly. Brian Byrne of Lantern Events said an expanded Spiegeltent program will see a much bigger “Paradiso” Spiegeltent, with a capacity for 12,000 people over three weeks, coming to town. He said there will be a similar program of events to last year, but on a much larger scale.

Gardaí (police) are investigating the shooting dead of seven sheep on a hillside near Laragh, County Wicklow.
The sheep were discovered by their owner last Tuesday afternoon on State-owned commonage land in Glenmacnass, around half-a-mile from the Glendalough monastic site.
The animals were killed in an area adjacent to the popular Wicklow Way hillwalking route.
All seven were killed with a high-powered hunting rifle.
