The annual Senior Citizens outing organised by the ladies of St. Cualan’s Committee took place on Thursday last March 25th. This is an annual event where the group have the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Penance for Easter. The food and the friendship that they receive from the Cistercian Monks always makes this a very enjoyable and memorable occasion.

There will be a talk held in the Marion Hall on Thursday April 8th hosted by North Tipperary Macra and IFAC. The talk is on Managing Your Finances, Taxation and Benchmarking your Farm Performance. It will run from 8pm to 10pm. This talk is open to all and has been very successful and beneficial to all in the farming sector in other regions.
Also Clodagh Macra would like to congratulate Annemarie Kavanagh and Rory Kennedy, both of whom are now through to the final of the National Talent competition. The semi final was held in Cashel on Sunday last in Boru Boru, Cashel. It was a highly entertaining night and there was stiff competition from seven other counties! Annemarie was one of two solo singers to be put through, and Rory competed in the solo instrumental competition. Also well done to Maria Ryan, who competed in the mastermind competition and very narrowly lost out on a place. The final will take place on Sunday May 2nd in the National Concert Hall, Dublin. Tickets can be booked through the club secretary.
