Knockanure Community/Text Alert to host meeting

Knockanure Community Alert/Text Alert group is holding its annual public meeting on Monday, November 4, amid continuing security fears and serious concerns over the scourge of drugs in rural North Kerry.

Listowel District Supt Fearghal Pattwell, Sgt Paula Kelleher and Sgt Jim Foley are to address the meeting which takes place in the Community Centre from 7.30pm.

"This is a very special occasion in our community and parish, whereby new people who have located to our community can meet with our local community people and get to know each other.  We have over 200 members on our TEXT Alert system, which enables the committee to keep in contact with each person in our parish with information on any criminal activity or any member who may need help within our community," a spokesperson said.
