Dancers or Chancers?

Dancers or Chancers?

Best wishes to the “Annaduff Ladies GAA Team” who are deviating from the football this Friday night and putting their feet to good work in another way. Maeve Rowley, Avril Cox, Aisling Duignan, Rachelle O’Connor and Maggie Rowley will take part in Hup! Festival/Connacht Fleadh fundraiser “Dancers or Chancers?” in Lough Rynn Castle Hotel this Friday, March 8th, starting at 8pm. They have a hilarious routine put together with champion sean-nos dancer Edwina Guckian and need your support and a nod from the adjudicators, Alan Devine, Eleanor Shanley and Ronan Reagan, in order to be crowned champion “dancers” not “chancers” on the night. A great night assured!

Irish Scottish Wedding

Warmest congratulations to Joe Beirne, son of Peter and Anne Beirne, Drumgildra, and Cara McGregor, daughter of Gordon and Kathleen McGregor, Edinburgh on their marriage on Saturday, 2nd March last, in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Drumsna.

The Church ceremony was a very moving and prayerful experience enhanced by the music and song of Eimear and Andrew Reynolds and facilitated by Fr. John Wall. As the guests arrived they were welcomed by rousing Scottish music rendered by a Donegal piper who also played the beautiful bride up the aisle to the air of “She Moves through the Fair”. The groom, bestmen and the Scottish lads dressed in the kilts of the McGregor Clan added to the Scottish flavour of the day. A reception was held in The Landmark Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon. For both the Scots and the Irish it was a most enjoyable occasion We wish Joe and Cara many happy years together.

Trollope Trail Walk

There is a Trollope trail walk talking place on next Saturday March 9th commencing at the Community Centre Drumsna at 3pm led by the one and only Mick Hanly. This beautiful walk takes approximately one and a half hours so you will be back in plenty of time for the Rugby.
