St. Cualan’s Party in the New Community Centre

St. Cualan’s Senior Citizens’ club had its first evening of entertainment in the new Community Centre recently.  A very enjoyable time was had by all.  A big crowd turned up for an evening of music and song which was supplied by the ever-obliging Phil & John Maher and Timmy McSharry.  Some of our guests also participated in the entertainment with song & dance.  Well done to all.  A special word of thanks to Nuala Ryan & family for the food which all agreed was delicious.

Our next day of music and song will be the Christmas Party which will be held in the same venue on 5th Dec.
