COME DINE WITH ME – Plans are all in place for what promises to be a most enjoyable night on Saturday night next December 2nd when we host the eagerly awaited ‘Come Dine with Me’. This is the clubs main fundraising event and your support is much appreciated. The event will start at 8 45 pm immediately after mass. Following the meal, there will be a host of local entertainment, and we will also be joined by young dancers from the Roisin Kennedy School of Dancing from Mohill. It promises to be a huge night and one not to be missed.
