Recalling April 1994

The piercing wind and snow showers failed to dampen the spirits of the many boating enthusiasts and spectators on the occasion of the opening of the Erne Waterway. The proceeds of a successful Whist Drive held in Drumreilly Community Centre were donated to St. Mary’s Church Repair Fund. Drumreilly U-14s played a 2-8 to 4-2 draw against a visiting team from Holloway Rd. London. Pat O’Connell, Mary Holahan, Christina O’Connell and Adrian Holahan qualified for the Co. Leitrim Community Games Art Finals. The County Councillors from the Ballinamore area were invited to a public meeting in the Community Centre to discuss the deteriorating condition of roads in this community. Senator Gerard Reynolds, Jim Joe Shortt, Damian Brennan, Tommy McCartin and Liam McGirl attended. The outcome was that the ways were made smooth in Mullaghmore, Drumlea, Drumcoura, Carrickmakeegan, part of Derrygoan. A promise of attention was made for roads in Keelrin, Drumdiffer and “Connolly’s Shore”, and for the immediate future it was a case of “grin and bear it” for the residents Corrala, Dohern, Drumconlevan, Killameen, Ardra, Aughalough, Kinkeen, Mullaghboy, Ardunsaghan and Kilmore. Drumlea school team prevailed against Drumeela, Aughavas and Fenagh. The U-16s were beaten by Carrigallen and Kiltubrid. Drumreilly seniors left two valuable points in Páirc Seán O’Laodáin, where they wee beaten by 4-6 to 1-5 by Fenagh. The death took place of Mrs. Mary

Kate Brady, Carrickmakeegan. R. I. P.
