Dessie and Tom, the "Derry
Devils", hosted the June Table Quiz on the 29th June.
They impressed all present with their unique variety of
questions. We may have been stunned ….. but not into silence.
Once again, controversy reigned, friendly rivalry was
much in evidence and Kelly's Hob was electric with the
buzzing of collective brain searching. Why not treat yourself
to an uplifting experience in July, on Friday the 27th
when Gerry Woods will be the quizmaster. Savor the atmosphere
while supporting our efforts to raise funds to build our
much needed Community House.
The multi-talented, versatile Elaine Kane
ended a chapter in her book of life when she bid a fond
farewell to her young play school friends. For many years
Elaine has provided a safe, caring and happy environment
where toddlers experienced positive learning, through play
and social interaction. Her creativity, kindness, sense
of humour and above all, her patience enriched the lives
of her pupils. As a community we are indebted to her. We
wish her good luck in her future ventures and continued
success in her musical productions.
When going to press, the planning aspects
of the 4th annual Timahoe Field Day were beginning to come
together and like a jig-saw, we hope they will make a full
picture on the July 8th. We tapped into the talents, organisational
skills, experience and expertise of our community. Much
hard work and effort has gone into making our Field Day
an enjoyable family day. We appreciate the generosity of
our sponsors - a full list will be published in the next
issue of the MONA - and we value and acknowledge the energy
of our committee and helpers. To Miss Nimble Fingers herself,
Pauline Mahoney - we hope your hands have recovered.
TIR NA MONA JAMBOREE
The Tir na Mona Jamboree is scheduled for
Saturday, August 25th. It is a wonderful opportunity for
friends - new and old - to mix and mingle; an opportunity
to meet people from neighbouring areas, swap stories, catch
up on the news and test out St. Kevin's new, top of the
range dance floor. Tickets will be available shortly through
the area groups. So be sure to put the date in your diary
and come along for a great night out.
ACTIVE AGE GROUP
The topic of conversation
at the Timahoe Active Age June Get Together was the Summer
Trip. The ingredients are a balanced blend of action and
relaxation, history, culture and the environment, enjoyment
with a sprinkling of good humour and friendship….. a sure
fire recipe for success. Leaving Kelly's at 9.30 a.m., a
fun-filled, memorable dat is anticipated, courtesy of our
community, who supported the weekly Saturday Lotto. This,
along with the counter Bottle Collection, have provided
full funding for the trip. We appreciate your generosity.
We will raise our glasses to you, in Athlone, on July 11th,
under Ger Kelly's watchful eye. Ger is coming along to make
sure we behave ourselves.
Dont forget that it
is up to all of us to look out for the more vulnerable in
our neighbourhood. If you see something suspicious phone
your local community alert contact or Paddy Maher at 086
