CHARITY COLLECTION: A church gate collection was taken up at all masses in Anglesboro and Kilbehenny recently in aid of Suicide Aware. Just over €700 was collected. This is a fantastic amount for such a small parish. The Suicide Aware organisation would like to thank all who subscribed to this very worthy cause. A huge thanks also to the volunteers who took up the collection on what was a bitterly cold day.
DRAMA: On Thursday night 21st to Sunday 24th of March Anglesboro Drama Group will stage their play “A Wake in the West” by Michael J. Ginnelly. The play is a laugh a minute comedy. It is set in the West of Ireland in a country house and centers around a families efforts to deal with the death of their father Tom – who has unusual last wishes. The play was originally written for the writer’s local drama group, but such was the popularity of it that it was performed all over the world in places such as Boston and Chicago. The curtain goes up at 8.30pm sharp each night. Admission for adults is €8 and €3 for children. There will be complimentary tea and biscuits during the interval. Seats can be pre-booked on our ticket line number (087) 7534006. The Anglesboro Drama Group can also be followed on www.facebook.com/anglesborodrama
DRIVE TO SURVIVE: Plans were put in place at a recent meeting for a huge cattle sale at Golden Vale Mart Kilmallock on Bank Holiday Monday May 6th. The idea was put forward by a group of local farmers. They are now seeking donations of cattle to help this wonderful cause. On the following Saturday May 11th, the action moves to the Old Mitchelstown Mart, where a plant and machinery sale takes place under the hammer of Kilbehenny based Auctioneer Maurice Walsh who will donate all fees etc to the collection. Various events have risen over €20000.00 to date, plus a trip to London by Ballylanders G.A.A Club which rose over €8000. Any volunteers wishing to help out can contact Dan McCarthy Chairman on (086) 2549014 or on drivetosurvice.ie.
G.A.A: Congratulations to Anglesboro man and current Vice-President of the Galtee Gaels G.A.A Club - Patsy Casey - who was honoured at the South Limerick G.A.A All Stars on Saturday night last with a Loyalty Award for his service to the G.A.A. Patsy in involved in the G.A.A all his life, starting with a playing career with Anglesboro in 1963 and continued to the 1970’s with Galtee Gaels. When his playing days were over, he worked tirelessly for the Club Committee and the Limerick Supporters Club, doing fundraising and representing the Club at South and County Board level. When Galtee Gaels or Limerick Teams are playing, no matter were they are playing, Patsy will be one of the first to arrive to see them play! The award was presented to Patsy by Declan Murphy, Chairman of the South Board in the presence of a full house at Bulgaden Castle Lounge, There was a large turnout of Galtee Gaels members and supporters to cheer on Patsy for his award, which all were in agreement he richly deserved.
The first draw in the Limerick County Development draw was held at Patrickswell in Friday night last. There are nine more draws to take place on the first Friday of each month. At the moment, Galtee Gaels are thirty members short of their quota. Anybody wishing to join can contact any Club member or Draw Coordinator Kieran Walsh on (087) 9044463. Your support would help the Club avoid paying a levy on the numbers they are short of their quota.
Beannachtai la feile Padriag: to all Limerick Leader readers from the people of Anglesboro and Kilbehenny”.
