Weekly Notes 26th March 2017

Congratulations are extended to Paula Hannigan who recently celebrated her 21st birthday with a party for family and friends in Hannigans, Kilbarron. A great night was had by all.

Ballinderry Sportsfield will host a forum at 8.00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29th at Ballinderry Sportsfield meeting room. This forum aims to be the basis for drawing up a 3 year strategic plan, which will promote the use of the facilities by as broad a cross section of the community as possible. To achieve this, we would ask that as broad a representation from the community, bring forward their ideas on further developments they would like to be brought to the facilities. We look forward to seeing you there and hearing your proposals.

This is it – after many weeks of rehearsals for the cast and director, and many nights of late hours by the stage crew, Kilbarron Drama Group proudly present this year’s production of Michael J. Ginnelly’s hilarious 3 act comedy ‘Pretend Sick’ which will go on stage this weekend 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 12 on stage this year under the directorship of Lisa McGeeney, and it is great to see so many new faces among the cast. We are looking forward to seeing you all in Kilbarron this weekend for what promises to be a great night’s entertainment.
