Congrats On Recent Upgrades Introduced At Thurles Shopping Centre.

Congratulations to Thurles Shopping Centre, situated south east on Slievenamon Road in the town.

Thurles Shopping Centre Upgraded Front & Rear.

The recent beautiful landscaping undertaken, over the past fortnight, has truly enhanced not just the shopping centre building itself, while also adding to the overall customer experience of feeling safe and secure, not forgetting granting to consumers a further air of relaxation, without the worry of time limits related to car parking charges demanded in our town centre.

To the rear of Thurles Shopping Centre, wheel chair access has now also been added, for those using the ‘Thurles River Walk’ and wishing to avoid continuous heavy traffic; thus all adding to a more untroubled and contented shopping experience within the town.

Consumable Items Recalled By Food Safety Authority Yesterday.

The five consumable items, pictured hereunder, are being recalled by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide ethylene oxide. This pesticide is forbidden in Europe, as it is known to be carcinogenic and mutagenic.

The consumables to be avoided include:-
(1) Batches of Seven Seas Omega-3 and Immunity 30 Day Duo Pack. [Batch 247548: Best Before Jul-22; Batch 247549: Best Before Jul-22 and Batch 256666: Best Before March-23.]
(2) Batches of True Natural Goodness Organic Turmeric Powder. [All best before dates between 10/11/2022 to 11/03/2023.]
(3) Batches of Carte D’or Strawberry Ice Cream. [L1123CL020, L1146AL020, L1146BL020 and L1147BL020; best before: 05/2023]
(4) Batches of Nestle Milkybar Mini Multipack Ice Cream. [6 x 50ml – Batch code Ml099 best before 04.2023.]
(5) Batches of Nuii Salted Caramel Ice Cream. [90ml Batch codes Ml1114 and Ml1115 – best before 04.2023.]

Ethylene oxide is a pesticide that is not permitted for use in foods sold in the EU, but is approved for use by other countries outside the EU.

Although the consumption of the contaminated products does not pose an immediate acute risk to health, there is an increased risk if there is continued consumption of ethylene oxide in contaminated food over a long period of time. Therefore, exposure to ethylene oxide needs to be minimised.

Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with and retailing the implicated batches.

Ethylene oxide is also used as a surface disinfectant that is widely put into service in hospitals and the medical equipment industry, to replace steam in the sterilization of heat-sensitive tools.

Holycross Village Bi-Weekly Market, Tomorrow Saturday August 7th.

A reminder that the bi-weekly Holycross Village Market is taking place tomorrow, Saturday August 7th, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.

Ann Lanigan Reports:

“Tomorrow is the first of our block of Autumn markets and we look forward to welcoming new vendors including Cathal, an entrepreneurial local student who is bringing a sporting angle with hurleys, sliotars, jerseys, shorts and much more, a must for all GAA enthusiasts.

We have many familiar faces returning with their popular products, including arts and crafts, artisan bakes, hot foods, coffees, healthy breads, free range meats, fruit and vegetables.

There will be live music and poetry to enjoy as you avail of the beautiful surroundings of the historic village of Holycross.

Following on from the outstanding success of ‘The Eco Laundry Egg’ promotion as part of the market Environmental policy, we’re delighted to raise awareness with this market’s Eco promotion “all about the kitchen sink”. These products are not only environmentally friendly, but are also financially sound solutions.

We have stewards on hand to help in any way necessary and there is ample parking behind the Abbey Church.
