A great day was had in Ballyhahill Parish Hall last Sunday when the senior citizens of the parish were treated, by the Gerald Griffins wrenboys, to the annual hot meal, music and dance. A great crowd attended and were appreciative of the event. This is a lovely tradition which is kept alive every year thanks to the wrenboys. Liam Enright of Clounleharde, aged 94, was delighted to be amongst those attending.

The Abha Bhán Players, under the direction of Eleanor McSweeney and Caroline Gee, intend staging the play Sive in the Glórach on Jan 24 and 25 at 8pm.
