Scór    Our Scór na nÓg journey ended at the Munster Final in Ovens last Sunday. We had hopes that The Matchmaker would bring us all the way to the Waterfront Theatre in Belfast for the All Ireland, but this was not to be.

Barry, Dearbhla, Joshua, Liam Óg, Aine and Jack gave an outstanding performance and while the crowd loved the piece, their very obvious enthusiasm wasn’t enough to give us the Munster title.

We’ve had a very memorable few months with this youthful group though, and we’ll be back next year. Many thanks to all the parents who travelled to Ovens to cheer us on – we very much need and appreciate this support.

One Wedding and a Funeral    I’m delighted to say that all the tickets for One Wedding and a Funeral are gone and the countdown to this exciting event is now on!!!

Final rehearsals are underway this week and the excitement around the club is palpable!! The wedding ceremony starts at 7pm so be there on time to secure a good seat and view all the action!!

As has been mentioned before in these notes, there will be a lovely buffet meal, dancing til late, a prize for the most glamorous couple, a raffle for an iPhone 7 and sundry other surprises on the night…….Looking forward to seeing everyone next Saturday!
