It was with deep sadness and shock that we, Tydavnet Tidy Towns group, learned of the sudden death last week of our fellow committee member, Jim Balfe. Jim was a loyal and devoted member of Tydavnet Tidy Towns, always ready to give generously of his time and expertise to enhance the work of the organisation. His good humour, positive attitude and sound advice will be sorely missed by all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Anne, his children Deirdre, Kevin, Anne Marie, Caitriona, Francis, David and Lorraine, and his extended family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.
