Welcome: Welcome to the first edition of the Colmcille Notes. I hope that these notes will become a useful and informative outlet for the community and a means by which the various groups within the area can communicate with the wider population and vice versa. Those wishing to have notes included should send them to or contact 0879254868 by 6pm on Sunday evenings. All notes and comments will be welcome.

CELEBRATE CIAN FUN WEEKEND: Be sure to mark Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March in your diary as we celebrate with a fund-raising weekend in memory of Cian Smith, Glenmore, Aughnacliffe, who passed away in February 2011. A “Come Dine with Me” evening takes place in “The Piker’s Lodge” in Gowna on Sat 2nd March at 8 p.m. If you think you could host a table by inviting friends and family along, providing dessert (main course provided by hotel) tickets will cost €20 and it promises to be a really enjoyable night with lots of entertainment, music and dancing afterwards to the “Dance on Band”. Anyone interested in hosting a table please ring Lil at 086 8134484 or Christine at 087 6450530 before Friday January 18th. On Sunday, 3rd March, a Fun Football Match, between Cian’s friends, takes place in Parc Na Gael, Dromard, other events are also in the pipeline. More details on all events at a later date. All proceeds from the “Celebrate Cian Fun Week-End” will go to the “Make A Wish Foundation”, a charity which supports terminally ill children and their families.
