Carer wanted for apartments

Dorothy Cogan wrote: “Hi Sean, wondering if you can help me please. I am looking for a lady to look after an apartment in Boyle if I rent it out as I am not living in Boyle any more …. meet people coming to stay, clean when they’ve gone, drop sheets to laundry, make up apartments again etc
• Can I advertise on your Realboyle page or maybe there is already someone in the town you know that already manages apartments.”

Business reopenings/closures

Apart from Covid, the normal thrust of business opening and closure issues, Boyle is similar to other towns. New businesses will open, while some will close for a variety of reasons: Maybe a trader gets a job with a different employer: A trader decides to move on to other things: Inheritance disputes dictate selling out etc etc.

Does Sunshine vitamin D help put Covid in the shade?

Irish Examiner: “A group of medical professionals and academics is now calling on the government to recommend a daily dose of 20 to 25 micrograms (mgs) of vitamin D for every Irish adult as a preventative treatment for Covid-19. They also want the government to provide vitamin D supplementation to vulnerable groups such as frontline healthcare workers, those with pre-existing conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure and older adults, especially those living in nursing homes.”

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics anonymous

Just a gentle reminder –  “we would be delighted if you could put a small message on regarding our AA meeting. It takes place every Thursday at midday in St. Joseph’s Hall.
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. Their stated purpose is to enable “members to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.” It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, and apolitical.”
