Rookie criminals Mary Donlon and Marcus Sheridan hold the docile barman Paddy English at gunpoint. It’s four in the morning and the pub is full of money.

What could go wrong? Surely John Francis Milton stopping by to collect slops for his greyhound, ‘Biscuit’ won’t alter their plans but no robber wants to hear those words... ‘Do I know you from somewhere?’

Active Age

Carrigallen and Drumeela Active Age continue to be very ‘active’! We have recently completed our ten week Yoga Course – a big thank you to Julie Smith, our Instructor. All of us who attended the Course are feeling the benefit, both physically and mentally.

Maintaining all that physical activity we are planning a visit to the 10 Pin Bowling Ally in Longford later this month; and a short time ago twenty two of our members got great pleasure from a night out at ‘the dogs’ in Mullingar. Not too much physical activity for us there, but some of us had a profitable night out, and we all enjoyed the dinner!

Planning is well ahead for some day trips, and suggestions for our three day break later on this summer are under discussion – Maura O’Rourke, our new Social Secretary, has it all well in hand!

Make a Wish

A fundraiser is being held in Mitchell’s Bar, Carrigallen on Saturday 1 June 2013 to raise funds for Make-A-Wish.

Tickets cost €15 and for this you get a delicious buffet meal in the restaurant followed by music in the bar by Evening Star....A fun evening is guaranteed!

There are currently two hundred and fifty children waiting on a wish in Ireland and sadly they don’t all have the time to wait so please spread the word.

For every ticket we sell €10 will be donated to help make these wishes come true. Tickets on sale in Mitchell’s Bar or contact nicholaoconnell@eircom.net. If you cannot attend but would like to sponsor M-A-W go to www.mycharity.ie and enter Carrigallen ladies.
