A WORD OF APPRECIATION – to all the helpers in the community.

In the wake of the funerals of Joann Hicks and Enda O’Reilly I want to say again how fantastic it is to see how this community responds to the needs of others in such circumstances.  I particularly want to thank all those who help out around the churches on the occasions of the funerals.  It is important that we do things well, with respect and dignity.  In order for this to happen the participation of so very many is required.  The huge number of visitors that we had for both funerals kept remarking on the care and attention to every detail.  It is great when we are able to maintain the highest of standards in every respect.  Our gratitude is extended again to the women of the parish who take care of the catering and who provide such warm hospitality to the family circles when they need it most. We all noticed the huge crowds that were catered for on both occasions.  Neighbours play an important part in such circumstances.  I know for sure that both families are extremely grateful to all those who extended a helping hand.  Long may these lovely traditions continue here in the parish of Drumlane. 

 

BALLYHUGH CULTURAL CENTRE:  A 4wk class in Sean-Nós Dance & Traditional Steps will commence on Wed. 17/05 at 8.30pm followed by weekly Countryhouse dancing. Sean-nós, old style, is a traditional form of solo dancing, low to the ground, relaxed and rhythmic in which the dancer is free to interpret the music. This style of dancing has become very popular in recent years, is suitable for all age groups, a great way to get fit and maybe you will be able to use the steps at next music session. Tel: 049 9526044.

 

LOST & FOUND: Lady’s ring found in vicinity of Milltown Village enquiries to Trish’s Min Market.
