Active Age: Cloone/Aughavas Active Age had a great turnout from both parishes for our Christmas dinner on Thursday, December 13 at the Bush Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon. The group were welcomed upon arrival with mulled wine – which went down very well on the cold evening that was. This was followed by a delicious four course meal with lots of choices available. Chairperson, Irene Argue thanked all those who travelled and the hotel for the efficient service.
