We had a great Christ­mas get-to­gether in Lyn­hams on Tues­day last. It was great to see so many fa­mil­iar faces and some new ones. We had a su­perb lunch and were treated like VIPs.

The won­der­ful chil­dren from St. Kevin’s Na­tional school en­ter­tained us with Christ­mas car­ols and we had even had a visit from Santa - we must have been very good. What made it even more en­joy­able is that we got to share the af­ter­noon with our friends from Sun­beam in Rath­drum who, along with Mae, even pro­vided us with a song.

Thanks to every­one who made the day so suc­cess­ful - all the staff of Lyn­hams, the teach­ers and chil­dren of St. Kevin’s Na­tional School, the staff of the Brock­agh Cen­tre and all our helpers. Thanks to all who do­nated. A spe­cial thanks to Lucy who put so much work into the day and who we now know is a mas­ter of dis­guise!


Well done to the Youth Club who or­gan­ised for Santa to visit the Brock­agh Cen­tre on Sun­day 14 last. The rein­deers weren’t avail­able that day so they or­gan­ised for him to ar­rive by horse and car­riage.

They even or­gan­ised a grotto for Santa so he would feel at home. A lot of work into the day which was much ap­pre­ci­ated by the chil­dren who came to visit and their par­ents. A big thank you to all the young peo­ple in­volved and their leaders.


A guided walk of Scar and Lough Dan will take place on Sun­day 21 De­cem­ber.

With it be­ing Christ­mas time we will have a fes­tive theme on this walk, mulled wine and minced pies to help you on your way. Hope­fully the mulled wine will be warm by the time we get to drink it. This will be a 3-4 hr moderate walk.

The price for this walk will be just €25 and it’s im­por­tant to book early as places will be lim­ited. Please ring Terry on 087-7849599, e-mail Terry@hill­top­ for more in­for- ma­tion. Terry will be back in the New Year at the Brock­agh Cen­tre with his Yoga and Walks.


The Wick­low Man will con­tinue in the Brock­agh Cen­tre over the Christ­mas & New Year pe­riod. He will be in the Brock­agh Cen­tre on the 23rd and 30th De­cem­ber.


Con­grat­u­la­tions to Liam McEvoy on winning 1st prize in the Bun­clody South East Draw. Liam had the choice of a car or €13,000. Other win­ners on the night in­cluded Diane McCoy, Va­lerie and Maria Mer­ri­gan and Brian Wind­sor. Best of luck to every­one in the Jan­uary & Fe­bru­ary Draw.

St. Kevin’s FC would like to wish all their sup­port­ers and spon­sors a Happy Christ­mas and a pros­per­ous New Year.
