Wicklow County Council Joint Policing Committee will hold a public meeting on Wednesday 2nd November, 2016 in Roundwood Parish Hall and Centre, Roundwood commencing  8.00 p.m.  The focus of the public meeting will be on policing, rather than individuals and obtaining the co-operation of the public in preventing crime.  The local community will have the opportunity to make their views known and ask questions of the members of the committee and all are welcome to attend.  The Committee will also formally launch the newly adopted Joint Policing Committee 6 Year Strategic Plan on the evening.




Our Annual Mass of Remembrance – Service of Light will be on Saturday 5th November at 6.30pm.  This Mass is for Parishioners who died between 15th September 2015 and 14th September 2016 and whose funerals took place from either Roundwood or Moneystown Church.  There is a Remembrance Mass in March 2017 for Parishioners/Former Parishioners whose funerals took place in other Parishes.



Talk by Dr Neil Carlin, Dept of Archaeology, UCD. Tues Nov 1st at 20.00 in Roundwood Parish Hall. The title of the talk is “People, Places and Things: the life stories of Beaker polypod bowls in Ireland”. In this paper, Dr Carlin will discuss the archaeological evidence for the Beaker tradition, polypod bowls that have been found in Ireland, particularly in the east of the island in Meath and South Dublin. These bowls form part of an assemblage of pots known as Beakers that were used across Europe around 2500 BC.Dr Carlin will share the story of how his research into the use of these pots inspired a New Zealand ceramic artist, to create a sculpture which he helped destroy at a public ceremony in Dublin in 2014. This talk will appeal to the wider public who may not know much at all about archaeology or the specific topic as well as people with much more knowledge of the subject.

All are welcome – The talk is open to the general public as well as Society members. An entrance fee of €3 is payable at the door.
