DRAMA: On this Thursday night 4th of April all roads lead to Anglesboro Community Hall for another extra night of the local drama groups’ production of “A Wake in the West” by Michael J. Ginnelly. This extra performance is in aid of Drive to Survive. The play is a hilarious comedy, which brought over 1500 people to Anglesboro recently and had all of the audiences laughing all night. Production was again in the very capable hands of Willie Carr of Ballinvreena. Willie himself is an actor with the Canavour Players who had a very successful play this year. He is producing in Anglesboro for the third year running now. The highlight of the play came on Saturday night, when Anglesboro Drama Groups President Tom Roche announced the recipient of the “Presidents Prize”. The prize went to the person, who in the Judges view, made the greatest contribution to drama in Anglesboro. The recipient of this prestigious prize went to Willie Carr and everyone agreed that he was very deserving of it. The award was a splendid solid oak plaque with the drama mask crest and it was followed up by a signed certificate of award to Willie. Tom Roche gave a beautiful eloquent speech and thanked all who contributed in anyway to every production of the group.

DEIVE TO SURVIVE: Last weekend was a hectic one for the people of Anglesboro and the surrounding area, as they turned out in huge numbers to support the fundraising events. The weekend started off with a Bingo Game on Friday night last in a packed hall. Then on Saturday last it was the turn of the small children. They all took part in an Easter Bunny Hunt in Combaun Wood, which took place in cold crispy conditions. It was truly a great event for children and the tea and cakes in the hall were most welcome afterwards. On Sunday morning over seventy cyclists set off on two routes to raise funds. In bitterly cold and wet conditions the cyclists set off on two routes. There was huge relief when everyone’s face when they all returned to the Hall for tea, soup, sandwiches and a few hot toddies to warm the weary cyclists up. In spite of the very cold weather, everyone was delighted to have contributed to a very worthy cause. Then on Sunday night, it was on the more comfortable surroundings of The Galtee View Bar, where a head shave/dying programme was in place. A number of local volunteers were joined by local politicians – Senator James Heffernan from Kilfinane and Councillor Eddie Ryan from Galbally. All who failed to keep their hair on!! Drive to Survive Chairman Dan Gallahue – who also fell victim to the razor was loud in his praises fro all who helped to make the weekend a huge success. Special thanks go to all who donated food and there was some amount of it over the whole weekend. Thanks to all who took part in the activities and thanks to all who put their hands in their pockets.
