A Sincere Thank You

The Committee of Douglas Senior Citizens would like to thank most sincerely the management of the Douglas Village Shopping Centre for their generous ‘Give Away Cash’ for the Community, which we won in last week’s draw and we assure them of our continued support in the future.
We would also like to thank our nominator Mrs Joan O’Grady who choose us. We are very grateful to her and assure everybody concerned that the money will be spent for the benefit of all our members.

Attention O'Callaghan Family

Dear Douglas Weekly
I am helping a friend in the US research of his O'Callaghan relatives from Cork and came across your Volume 4 - Issue 18, 3rd May, 2001, where you highlighted a young author, Billy O'Callaghan, and what I presume are some of his family, Regina and Derry O'Callaghan. Our research leads us to believe these may be relatives.
Is there any way you could pass a message on to the family on our behalf? The details we have are for a Martin J. O'Callaghan, born 29 March 1962. If this could be forwarded on to the O'Callaghans featured in your piece and if they find any of it sounds familiar, please have them contact me. I can be reached as below or they may phone me at home (reverse charges, if they'd like) at 001-215-942-2791.
Thank you in advance,

Thank You from Hillcrest training and Development Centre
Just a note to thank the Douglas Village Shopping Centre for including us in the “Cash for Our Community Promotion”.
It is greatly appreciated by everyone here and the € 1,000 will go toward the cost of replacing our pottery kiln which broke down last week.
If we can ever be of assistance, do not hesitate to call.
With Thanks Again

Crime 'Red Alert'

Deputy Noel O’Flynn as a ‘Soldier of Destiny’ or an Independent will be elected to Dáil Éireann because of his stand against, not only refugee messers, but messers in general on Leeside.
Present scenario in the ‘Beautiful City’; old folks living in fear, young thugs on every corner of private and council estates. Vacant houses wrecked by out all night mindless morons. Parents of said yobbos and yobbettes giving zero satisfaction to complaining victims.
If Gardai cannot solve the problem, bring our ‘Rangers’ home from foreign fields, to give those in autumn years a bit of peace. If the government fail to act, next stop vigilantes or other organisations waiting in the wings to protect innocent rebel citizens.
Act now Bertie or rue your long finger policy sooner (Election Time) rather than later!
Neil O’Donoghue, Douglas
