THE Muskerry Local History Society Lecture on Tuesday, March 19, is a talk by Tim O'Brien on the Muskerry tram.

This year marks the 125th anniversary of the opening of the Muskerry Tram line between Cork's Western Road and Blarney in 1887. To mark the anniversary, Tim has compiled a special slide show presentation covering the rail line's journey to Mid-Cork up to its closure in 1934.

The lecture will take place in Ballincollig Rugby Club (Tanner Park) Clubhouse at 8pm.

Admission is €3 for non-members and everyone is welcome.

A new home for your old mobiles

BRING along your old or unused mobile phones to the Doneraile Active Retired meeting on Monday, March 11 in the community centre at 3pm.

Meanwhile, the group thanked Bernice for displaying their knitted work in the post office - and the blanket and shawl/knee warmer will be raffled off on Monday, March 25.
