They are looking for acts to participate, the acts can be one to twenty people.  The event is being run by a professional team of dancers and choreographers. Practice next 3 Saturdays in Cardiff’s Lounge Drumcong. Each act gets a 20 min slot with the team between 10am and 12pm. At the start of the show on the night, there’s a group performance by all acts- this will also be factored into practice.  Kiltubrid are seeking acts from neighbouring clubs to participate. Having been good supporters of Leitrim Gaels over the years anyone that is interested please contact Aine on  0872544388. As far as fundraising goes, it is minimal for the acts at this stage, it is about the participation and support of the event as part of the Park Development plan.

Sympathy – The club wishes to extend their deepest sympathy to the Connolly Family Leitrim Village on the sad passing of Pat last week. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
