We in the Parish of Sixmilebridge would like to support the call made by Flora Crowe during the week on behalf of local businesses and especially in small town and urban areas across rural Ireland.
The local shop is the heart of these towns and villages and plays a huge part in keeping Rural Ireland alive. Each one of us in our own communities can support these.
We know that the cost of living affects everyone.
It’s incumbent on all of us now to support the local.
We can do this in two ways at least:
- By giving our support to these businesses.
- To approach our Local and National Politicians, T.Ds and Councillors with the important issue Flora made during the week.
At the heart of Rural Ireland in every community is the local village and town and the businesses in them.
Our local communities are vital for the future of this country. Flora has made a significant call for a way to support these.
We can never forget when we were all isolated during Covid 19 Lockdown the magnificent parts Flora and people like her paid not only to supply us with our shopping needs but also in helping us to cope with our isolation.
This could be an opportunity for all of us to show our support and gratitude now for all that.
Fr. Harry has given his life to rural areas and rural communities – he would now call on all Parishes to support Flora’s call.
