Kildimo News 23 Jan 2009

The following whose anniversaries occur around this time, are remembered and Masses are being arranged: Elizabeth and William Hayes (Saturday, January 24 at 7pm) and Christy Ahern and John Walker, (Sunday, January 25 at 12). Solas na ngrást dóibh uilig.

The lotto in aid of community services is up and running for 2009 and if you want to check your numbers for 20/01/09, they were, 2, 15, 24 and 26. Because nobody struck the Jackpot, Consolation Prizes were drawn by Nancy O’Brien, Liz Hickey and Brian Griffin of €50, €30 and €20 respectively. The Jackpot is now €3,000 and rising and your support should be also.

This Wednesday, January 21, is the date for the next lecture sponsored by the Adare Society. Dr. Tadhg Maloney is presenting the talk on the theme of ‘The Influence of World War One on Limerick’. The newly graduated Doctor Moloney has been engaged in studying this topic for many years now and he must be regarded as our local expert on the subject. Adare folk will be interested to know that he has also been the main force in having the freedom of Limerick restored to an earlier Earl of Dunraven, whose freedom had been withdrawn because of remarks made by the Earl which didn’t accord with the opinions of the then members of Limerick Corporation. Dr. Moloney has also been instrumental in having due honour bestowed on those who served in the Great War from Co. Clare, in which County before his intervention, the appropriate memorial stones were not permitted in the County’s graveyards.

Mama Mia will be staged on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 22, 23 and 24 January 2009, at 8pm in the school hall. Tickets available at the door on each night costing; Adult €12, Children/Student €6 and Family (2+2) €30. Tickets also available in advance from the school. Complimentary tea and biscuits will be served during the interval. This is a show that cannot be missed following on the fantastic success of ‘Grease’ in 2008. A tremendous night of entertainment is guaranteed and looking forward to seeing you there. Please also tell your neighbours and friends and encourage them to come along.
Supervised study will take place in the study hall during the February 2009 mid term break for 3rd and 6th year students. Study will commence on Monday, 16 to Friday, 20 February 2009 from 10am to 4pm daily. The cost for this facility is €75. Application forms available from Regina in the office.
