FILM SHOW: KNOCKFIERNA HERITAGE:
Saturday 25th Nov, 8pm, after Mass, in Granagh Community Centre: Open invitation to attend a unique Film Show, which was recorded 26yrs ago, at The Rambling House, Knockfierna. What changes we have seen in that time.!! It features many locals and guests who discuss a wide range of topics - washing and cooking without electricity, the war & rationing, farming etc....
Jim Treacy plays the mouthorgan and a young Joanne Treacy sings. We see a young Anne Phelan, Castlemahon, now a violinist with the RTE Concert Orchestra.
It will be a wonderful opportunity to remember all these people and their stories as they recall what life was like for them growing up, a fascinating night of information. No entry fee and light refreshments included.
A hilarious comedy " Pull the Other One" by Norman Robbins and produced by Mary Liston.
The play will run for eight nights Nov 23rd - 26th and 30th to 3rd Dec at 8pm. Opening night, Thursday 23rd is a charity night with funds going to Down Syndrome Limerick.
The play is set in the living room of Albert and Muriel Perkins. When Albert’s mother in law opens a letter written to Albert from his friend Hillary, she refuses to believe it is perfectly innocent!! And there starts the chaos. Who is having the affair? Why is he posing in the nude? Is he a man or a woman? The cast includes a domineering mother in law, an innocent art student, a loving but unsure wife, a “ handy ” neighbour and, a disaster-prone husband, You are certainly guaranteed a good night of laughter.

The Annual church-gate collection for the local Vincent DePaul Society will be held on Saturday 25th Nov in Granagh. All proceeds are used locally. The Ballingarry collection will be held in O'Gradys Supermarket on Friday 1st. Dec. Give a little, it helps a lot.
Thinking about Christmas shopping - here's an Idea. Try and buy from small local businesses and self employed people e.g. local craftspeople, florists, bakers, food producers, knitters, artists, jewellery makers, candle makers etc. By supporting small businesses, your money goes to individuals instead of multinationals. This might help more local people and help them have a better Christmas.
