A huge well done and thank you must go out to everybody who helped in any way during the Easter Ceremonies. There are many extra little jobs which need to be looked after around Easter time and we are very lucky here in our parish to have some wonderful people who step up to take care of these things. In fact these people keep things running all year. These people volunteer their time and talent for the good of their community and if you think you could spare some time why not take a look on our parish website ballyduffparish.com and take a look at all the parish teams which are in place and always welcome fresh help.
Stars In Their Eyes.
The week of the show has finally arrived and the place is buzzing. As I write these weekly notes I am just home from rehearsals and wow the competition is really hotting up. There are hips swaying, knees knocking and that’s before the music even starts! Many people have told me that they intend to stay in character throughout the week so keep an eye out and see if you can spot any of them.
This night promises to be full of entertainment, fun and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. There are sights up on that stage that I never thought I would see and people who swore their singing days were over until that is they were given the chance to perform as their idol. Tickets for this event cost €15 and are selling like hotcakes. Tickets need to be prebooked and paid for and you can do so my calling the lovely Marie Reade on 089-4348844. The price of the ticket includes your entry, a voting card and some delicious refreshments at the interval. This promises to be a night to remember with all money raised going to our community centre redevelopment fund.
Parent and Toddler.
A reminder to you all that our local Parent and Toddler group meet every Friday from 9.30am to 12 noon in Ballyduff Community Centre. This Friday April 17th is gymboree day so why not come along with the little people in your life and have some fun while making new friends.
Our Little Lady.
We are all feeling over the moon this week in my family following the safe arrival of my precious little niece. Lily Rose O Sullivan has now arrived home to her home in Matthews Cross and her parents Neil O Sullivan and Liza O Neill are overjoyed and thrilled to have her home. Grandparents Noel and Nancy and Leonard and Peggy will be on hand to babysit as will all her aunties and uncles. We are all so happy to have her home in Matthews Cross and look forward to being part of her life.
Do This In Memory.
It is hard to believe that the children of the First Holy Communion class will have the last of their special Do This In Memory masses this Sunday April 19th. They have been preparing wonderfully for their First Holy Communion which will take place on Saturday May 9th at 11am
