As the lambing season is upon us all dog owners are asked to make sure your dog is kept under control as every year at this time a large number of sheep and lambs are attacked by dogs who usually run in packs and your dog could be one of them. The loss to the farmer is colossal and you also run the risk of your pet dog being shot if found in a field worrying sheep.

At the monthly meeting of Muff ICA presided over by the President Olive Parke, the guest speaker Linda Hughes gave a very graphic talk and picture show of her Missionary trip to Uganda. She was part of the Derry & Raphoe Missionary Group who organised the trip and members were inspired by her description of the real poverty and living conditions she found. What struck her most was in spite of their poverty these were happy people smiling and uncomplaining about their pain.

The competition for the best Handmade Christmas Card was won by Olive Parke, with Anne McLaughlin coming a close second.
