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 smcgauran@hotmail.com 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.
