Ladies club gathering

14 Clondra ladies had a very enjoyable night in Keenan’s of Tarmonbarry on Saturday night last. Past members who are no longer with us were fondly remembered. Old photos of the clubs activities and outings were passed around, a reminder of the fun times and happy memories. The ladies enjoyed a superb meal,a great night out, thus celebrating the year of the Gathering which comes to a close end of December.


Congratulations to Cilloe Drama Group on their excellent production of this year’s 3 Act Play “The Stolen Child”. All cast members gave outstanding performances in their roles. A deep and moving and factual play of time past in the 1950s Ireland. Continued success to the group in their future productions.
