Old folks full of fes­tive fun

Bray People - - News Focus -

EV­ERY­BODY was in the Christ­mas spirit last Sun­day evening as the Kil­macanogue Se­nior Cit­i­zens held their an­nual Christ­mas party.

Over 100 peo­ple gath­ered for the fes­tive party at the Sum­mer­hill Ho­tel.

Ev­ery­body en­joyed a full Christ­mas din­ner with all the trim­mings, of course but without the ham, for ob­vi­ous rea­sons.

Dur­ing the meal crack­ers were pulled, heads were cov­ered with colour­ful Christ­mas hats and ev­ery­body chat­ted and had great fun.

For dessert, the guests en­joyed a very de­li­cious slice of Christ­mas Cake pro­vided by lo­cal man Daryl Taighe, who also put a Christ­mas cake in the Ham­per which was raf­fled later on.

Once the bel­lies were full the mu­si­cal and danc­ing en­ter­tain­ment be­gan.

The guests were treated to two forms of danc­ing demon­stra­tions.

Lo­cal woman and in­struc­tor, Mar­garet Kearns and Noleen Od­lum headed the Line Danc­ing while a tra­di­tional Ir­ish Danc­ing piece got the feet tap- ping. Duo Wil­lie O’Con­nor and Jenny Gre­gory pro­vided the mu­sic, and got the dance floor full by play­ing old favourites, waltzes and Christ­mas tunes.

At the end of the night the raf­fle for the Christ­mas ham­per, which was filled with lots of de­li­cious good­ies, was held.

The win­ner was the de­lighted, Kil­macanogue woman, Marge Ma­her.

A great night was had be all and on their way out the door each of the guests were treated to a small Christ­mas cake for the fes­tive sea­son.
