Rehearsals are well under way for this year’s production of Michael J. Ginnelly’s hilarious 3 act comedy ‘Pretend Sick’ which will go on stage on Friday March 24th, Saturday March 25th and Sunday March 26th.
The manipulative Katie Logan played by Margaret Fox pretends to be sick in a bid to ensure her daughter, Mary played by Christina Carroll, stays at home to look after her and Mary’s brother Seán played by Mark O’Sullivan. Mary struggles to cope with the abuse, hoping that someday her boyfriend of many years, Martin played by Michael O’Halloran will finally pop the question and whisk her away from her mundane life at home. But Martin is afraid to leave his own mother, and then everything changes when the tourist Matt, played by Kevin Ryan, arrives. Between newlywed neighbours and a colourful mix of characters arriving through Katie’s door, where will it all end? We have a big cast of 11 on stage this year under the directorship of Lisa McGeeney, and it is great to see so many new faces among the cast. So make sure you put the date in your diary as it promises to be a great night’s entertainment.

We will hold an auction on Sunday March 12th at 11.00am in Kilbarron to raise funds to help run the club. We are asking for help in this fundraising initiative. A cake sale and lucky dip draw will also take place throughout the day. We are looking for your ideas and your help, and remember that many hands make light work! We would like to be able to auction short term services (2 to 3 hours) for painting, plumbing, car servicing etc. along with trailer loads of turf and timber. Also if anyone wants to donate trees, trailer loads of timber or turf etc, please contact Ger Leenane 087 6682475, John Cahalan 087 2869269 or any member of the camogie club.
