Good morning, Micheal with you here. Just a quick question to our newsletter subscribers (we consider you the best kind of readers). We are aware that these newsletters can be a tad long, so we are considering upping them to three times a week, but with less packed into them, so you can actually get to the bottom within a few minutes. As always, just hit a reply to this email and let us know your thoughts.
Now on with the news…

Principal's delight at major investment news!
St Catherine’s College in Armagh is among four County Armagh schools earmarked for new builds, the Education Minister, Michelle McIlveen, announced on Monday.
Portadown College, Killicomaine Junior High School and St Paul’s High School in Bessbrook will also benefit from major capital investments. Read the full story here.
Hijacking incidents
While there was no suggestion of a link between these two incidents in Loughgall and the second in south Armagh, they really are alarming incidents..and going by some of the comments, it’s nothing new…
Primark proving the carrot Rushmere needed!
Also in the news...
Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a woman in Armagh. Two men have been arrested.
A £2m proposal to revive a derelict petrol station and convenience retail site in Gilford has been welcomed by residents.
A set of identical twins from Portadown have bagged the leading role in the world premiere of a musical after being selected from more than 80 pairs of hopefuls.
A man who grabbed his stepdaughter by the shoulders and hair as he forced her down stairs has been ordered to complete 180 hours community service.
A man accused of making and distributing indecent images has been released on bail with a condition not to be within 200 yards of any child centric facility.
Huge shock from the weekend!
This news was tragic and shocking in equal measure. We’ve worked with Ciaran and his team at Maison Real estate on many occasions; they’ve been a pleasure to deal with. Ciaran was so highly regarding by many, many people and his sudden death has left a community stunned – that much was palpable on Sunday as news filtered through. Our thoughts are with everyone associated with Ciaran, in particular his partner Paul, parents Betty and Boe, and brothers Adrian and Sean. And of course, his wider family and big circle of friends.
Requiem Mass in St Patrick’s Cathedral on Wednesday, March 23 at 11am with burial afterwards in St Patrick’s cemetery.

Jiving with Gerard
Congratulations to Sinead Daly who has won herself – and a dance partner – four weeks of jiving lessons with Gerard Butler in Keady. Go dance to your heart’s content!
This was a slightly more condensed version of the newsletter this morning, so keen to know your thoughts on the format…
We’re thinking maybe a Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning with the newsletter….too much? Just right? The Goldilocks conundrum…
