The community of Ballinameen is to host a fundraising concert with James Kilbane for their community centre, school and church repair.
In Ballinameen the community are coming together on Sunday March 13 to hold a concert with leading Irish singer James Kilbane in the Ballinameen Community Centre.
The event is being organised by the village locals as there is a growing need within the community to take a greater role in fundraising to maintain their local community centre, school fundraising needs at Kingsland N.S. as well as to carry out repairs to the Ballinameen church working towards a total new roof as the present one is 113 years old.
All three fundraising needs play a very central part in the everyday life of the local community with all three located just yards from each other. The community centre is home to all local clubs including the GAA, Ladies Football, Irish Dancing, Community Games as well as locals using it for very important celebrations.
Tickets are available in Mulveys in Carrick on Shannon, Cooney’s and MacDonagh’s garages in Boyle, Oliver McDermott in Frenchpark, 8 Till Late in Roscommon, Clancy’s in Elphin, The Percy French Hotel in Strokestown, Super Valu in Ballaghadereen, Super Valu in Castlerea, The Cross Bar, Ballinameen, The Four P’s in Rathallen or from Carmel at 0866011866 or Johnny at 086 1019149. Concert starts at 8pm and doors open at 7.30pm.
All support will be appreciated by the Ballinameen community and area.
