A packed crowd gathered in St. Joseph's centre, Leitrim Village on Saturday evening last for the first showing of a short film 'Padraig' following the life past and present of Padraig Gilbride, Kiltoghert.

The film was produced by Maureen Moreton-O'Bern and her daughter Lauren Grace O'Bern.

A wonderful evening was enjoyed by everybody in attendance followed by lovely music and refreshments.
