This is Your Life – This Easter Saturday night in  Lough Rynn we are holding our “This is your Life” evening. A great response to ticket sales so far so thank you to everyone who has purchased to date; there are still tickets remaining which can be purchased on the night for just €10.  Compere for the occasion is the fantastic Tommy Moran. Cheese and wine reception, music and a raffle on the night should complete a great social occasion for the parish.

Swan Bar Division 4 – The Juniors made it three wins out of three but were made to fight all the way by a gallant Aughavas in a hugely entertaining game of football played in Aughavas on Saturday night last.
