Friends of Nenagh Hospital Fundraiser
A big thanks to the large crowd that attended the ‘In Tune for Life Orchestra’ in aid of Friends of Nenagh Hospital Fundraiser last Saturday night with the hall in the new complex packed to the rafters. A big thanks must go to Ned Kelly and his Orchestra who wowed the crowd on the night and showcased what an unbelievably talented bunch that they are. Many thanks also to Mike Murphy and the Orchestra back room team in helping on putting on such a professional show. The McGrath School of Dancing were very impressive and many thanks to them for travelling to the show. Many thanks to the very talented Loughnane family with Eddie, Claire, Jack and Andy singing on the night. One of the talking points of the night was the impressive performances of the schoolchildren of both Carrig and Kiladangan National Schools as they showcased the considerable talent within the parish. Many thanks also to the teachers in both schools. Many thanks to Tonys Shop, McGraths, Kennedys and Easons for stocking the tickets. Michael Ryan Scart was, as ever, an excellent MC on the night. Many thanks also to Gary Byrne who did trojan work behind the scenes in preparation for the night.
We hope everyone that attended enjoyed the night and it was a great way to launch the use of the club’s new complex.
