Templederry for Alannah Fundraiser

Glenkeen information board

From Glenkeen graveyard recently, where the second side of the information board was put in place. But for the Corona virus and the accompanying restrictions, this would most surely have been another great occasion in that historic place. However, Derry and Alice Bourke were on hand for the occasion and also son Paudie, who played a number of airs on the bagpipes.
