Weekly News 30th March 2013

This year’s play ‘The Cripple of Inishmann’ will be on stage in Kilbarron Hall this weekend. Opening on Thursday March 28th at 8.30pm, there will be four performances only, finishing on Easter Sunday night March 31st. Rehearsals have been going on for the last seven weeks and the cast is looking forward to putting on this challenging production. Countless hours have gone into creating a spectacular set which will enhance your enjoyment of this dark comedy.
While Billy Claven (Joe O’Meara) is the physical cripple on the island it soon becomes clear that many of the others characters are either mentally or emotionally crippled in their own way. Under the direction of Phil Quigley, the cast brings the characters to life, so make sure you pay a visit over the Easter weekend.

A reminder to all that the clocks go forward an hour this weekend for the start of summer time.

The U/16’s are now finished for the season, in what proved to be a tough first outing for them, thanks to all involved. Hopefully next season will see improvement. The U/13’s had no game at the weekend but trained instead, they have two games remaining and find themselves in third position in the league, well done guys.
The junior team had no game at the weekend due to all games being cancelled. The task is still the same, win three, win the league, so hopefully we will be back in action next Sunday away to Clodagh. Fixtures and training will be sent by text.
