Harvest Thanksgiving

A large congregation attended the annual Harvest Thanksgiving ceremony

in St. Columba’s Church, Corrawallen on Friday last, September 25th. The service was conducted by Capt. Richard Beadle and the special sermon was preached by Rev. Geoff Bridle, Enniskillen. The Church choir was led by organist Daphne Harkness. There was evidence of a fine summer, followed by the mellow fruitfulness of autumn in the array of flowers, vegetables and other farm produce inside the building, while outside the grounds were in splendid condition thanks to the input of Joe Hyland and his team of helpers.

On Sunday last in sun-bathed Páirc Seán, the Aughawillan Club, team and

loyal supporters rolled back a score of years since they last won a Leitrim Senior Championship to record a 1-13 to 1-10 victory over St. Mary’s in this year’s final. A great first half performance catapulted them to a five points’

interval lead, and while they did endure some anxious moments in the second half, there was no way that what has been often called “the spirit of the Willies” would allow a resilient St. Mary’s to spoil their evening. Congratulations to our neighbours across the lake!
