Aughrim notes week March 27th


Active Retirement

Well done to our members who braved the elements to walk in the St. Patrick’s Day parade. We were delighted to see Fr. Jim Hamell, recently retired Parish Priest of Annacurra, who was honoured by the community when he was selected to head the parade as Grand Marshall.  We wish to add our voices to the many in these parts who wish Fr Hamell a long and happy retirement. Our next committee meeting will be held on Thursday March 30th in Lawless’ Hotel at 10.30am
The monthly group meeting will be held on Tuesday April 4th at 10.30am in the Sports Complex.  Our April guest speaker will be Jimmy O’Toole, historian.
