If you know of any elderly neighbour or person living in your area who may be alone or in need of some assistance during these times, we would urge you to drop in for a chat or a quick visit. The smallest of things can mean the world to someone, so, we would encourage us who are able to keep an eye to our elderly neighbours and friends this Christmas season.

After all your hard work over the Christmas period it is now time to treat yourself. Celebrate Nollaig na mBan- Women’s Christmas- in Paddy’s Bar this 6th of January at 7.30pm.

Finishing touches are currently being put on the hilarious and family friendly ‘Cinderella’ panto which will be staged in Kilbarron on Friday January 8th and Saturday January 9th at 8pm.

The Panto showcases the wonderful local talent, young and not so young! Admission is just €10 for adults and €5 for children.

Just a reminder that we are still walking every night – meeting in the carpark in Kilbarron village at 8pm. Come and join us any night, it’s a great way to walk off the excesses of Christmas and work on that ‘new you’ in the New Year.
