Old folks full of festive fun
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.
