COLLEGE AWARDS: Congratulations to two former Anglesboro National School students who received awards at St. Fanahans College Awards night recently. Ian O’Connor from Lackendarra received The Principals award having completed his leaving certificate and is now a student in Pallaskenry College. Eamonn Kelly of Lisnalanive received the Sports Award. The awards were presented by Cork hurlers Cathal Naughton and Lorcan McLoughlin. Both students are members of the Galtee Gaels G.A.A Club. Ian is still a minor and is also on the Junior “A” panel, which won the South Limerick Championship, while Eamonn is a member of the Galtee Gaels under sixteen team which contested the County final replay where they were defeated by Mountcollins. Due to a hand injury received while playing hurling for St. Fanahans he was unable to take his place. Well done to both students.

DRAMA: There was a packed hall in Anglesboro recently for The Shoestring Theater Company’s production of “A night in November”. This award winning production by Marion Jones and produced by Kevin O’Shea was one of the best pieces of drama performed in Anglesboro ever. With Willie Lyons starring as Kenneth McAllister, a protestant dole clerk in a search for his own identity, set up by the bigotry he saw at Windsor Park in Belfast at a soccer match between the Republic and Northern Ireland. However, he ended up in U.S.A in support of the Republic – much to his own amazement. All at the Shoestring Theatre Company were loud in their praises of all the facilities in Anglesboro Hall and thanked the audience for what was their 71st standing ovation. Expectations are high that other drama company’s will perform in Anglesboro in the future. At present Anglesboro youth drama group has commenced rehearsals for their production of “The beauty manifesto” by Neil Leyshon under the watchful eyes of John McGrath and Ilsa Slattery. This production will go on stage on Friday and Saturday 3rd and 4th of January 2014. The adult production will go on stage from Thursday 27th March to Sunday 30th March 2014. The play chosen for 2014 is a play by Bernard Farrell called “Kevin’s Bed”, the cast is being chosen at this time.
