Fr. Denis Ryan
Timahoe Branch of Tir na Mona held a very enjoyable evening in St. Kevin's, some weeks ago
to show our thanks and appreciation to Fr. Denis Ryan S.M.A., who has helped out in the
parish for the past year. A terrific nights entertainment was provided with the help
of Patsy Mullaly, Carbury and his "One Man Band". Many thanks to him as he
managed to coax several shy and retiring members of the community to take the
"Spotlight" and notable amongst our songsters were Nancy Byrne, Dick Lane and
Molly Delaney. Fr. Ryan followed later with a lovely rendition of "Bunch of
Thyme". We held a Raffle for which we would like to thank St. Kevins
committee and some of the organising committee for providing prizes and refreshments. Over
£200 was made in the raffle and all was handed over to Fr. Ryan there and then. It was a
great night and many thanks to you, the community, who supported us and again to St.
Kevins for providing the premises.
Branch of Tir na Mona would like to convey our deepest sympathy to Andy Noone and all his
family at the sudden death of his wife Mai. May she rest in peace.

Enthusiastic card players gathered in Peters on Fri 12th March. It was an enjoyable
social event. Many thanks to our cardplayers and also to two absent players for
their donations. A grand total of £210 was raised.
The sale of work, on 21st March was a very successful fundraiser. This was due to the many
willing helpers, who gave generously of their time and energy. A special mention must be
made of the young boys and girls who helped setting-up, serving tea, organising
raffles....Well Done! Of
course, the support of our friends and neighbours on the day was vital and, because of
you, a grand total of £630 has been added to the computer kitty.
