SYMPATHY: We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Carol Kelly Church Lane, Rathowen, on the death of her husband Joe Kelly last week. To Joe’s children Pat, Gerard, James, Linda, Karen and Adam we also send our deepest sympathy. Joe passed away in his home surrounded by family after a long illness. Joe’s removal was last Sunday and funeral was Monday 8th with burial in Rathaspic Cemetery. We extend sympathy to Joe’s brothers, sisters, grandchildren, Uncles and Aunts and extended family members. May he rest in peace.
gala night: Legan Branch of St. Christopher’s is holding a gala night of music, dancing and storytelling in the Rustic Inn, in aid of St. Christopher’s Services, Longford, on Friday night, August 19th next. The show will be headlined by the generally acknowledged king of country music, Mick Flavin and his band. Also performing on the night will be Leinster and all-Ireland Irish dancing champions, Justin and Lauren McGuire. These two precocious talents, from Carrickedmond, have proven themselves to be the very best. A special treat is in store here. Veronica Moran winner of “Longford’s got Talent” and the nationwide “Stars of our Bars” and more recently with ‘ The Aftermath’ will chip in with a set in her own inimitable style. Finally, Mr. storyteller and recitation maestro himself, Liam Butler, loaded down with Leinster and All-Ireland medals, will ensure there are laughs a plenty. The organisers are hoping that St. Christopher’s Services will also be winners with a big turn out of support. A great night is promised. Don’t forget there will be a shuttle bus service in operation to Abbeyshrule starting from Cluntymullen.
