It is hard to believe that we are coming to the last of our Spring station masses already. The mass for Stonehouse, Whelansbridge and Lacka Road will take place on Thursday March 21st at 8pm in the home of Kathleen and Paddy Hennebry and on Friday March 22nd at 8pm the mass for Matthews Cross, Ballyduff East and Adamstown will be in the home of Linda and Brian Spillane. This is a lovely tradition and a perfect way for friends and neighbours to come together in such a busy world.
Time To Dance!
I am sure that you have all heard of The Solas Centre Dance for Life and this years night of fun is getting very close. On Friday March 29th twenty couples made up of people from all round the South East will take to the stage in The Theatre Royal to show us what they have been training so hard for over the past few weeks. Each novice couple will perform their own partner dance and also be part of a four minute opening number. The choreographing duo of Michelle Condon and Michelle Quilty have been putting these novice dancers through their paces for the past few weeks and they will be delighted to show off their skills.
Our very own Ciara Larkin from Powersknock will dance the Charleston with her dance partner Laura Brown. Each participant is asked to raise €500 for the charity and we all have an opportunity to help Ciara raise her target. Ciara has organised a raffle with a fantastic hamper up for grabs. Tickets will be on sale at Centra in Kilmeaden on Saturday March 16th so please help Ciara reach her target for this wonderful charity.
The Sweep Bar will play host to a lovely coffee morning on Wednesday March 20th from 10am to 12 noon. All proceeds from this will go to the local branch of Down Syndrome Ireland. This was a hugely successful event last year and one that really sticks in my mind. Bim Connors will be dropping along to sing a few numbers and no doubt there will be a dance or two. Come along and enjoy a relaxing morning in lovely company while helping to raise funds for this very worthwhile charity.
If you would like me to include something in these notes for you then please drop me a text or email or we can even be really weird and have a conversation. This is the best way to let people know about an event you or your club or organisation are having or share the good news of an engagement, wedding, birth , achievements or significant birthdays. You can contact me on 051-399925, 087-9838392 or firstname.lastname@example.org or like I said let’s be really crazy and have a chat.
