Carol singing at Carrigeen for Christmas

Choir members sing at Carrigeen Nuring Home

Members of the Borrisoleigh Church Choir and friends paid their usual annual visit to Carrigeen Nursing Home on Thursday 22 December last. Gifts were given and carols and songs were sung much to the enjoyment of the residents and staff. A lovely festive evening was enjoyed by one and all.
