Bray Se­nior Cit­i­zens en­joy a won­der­ful Christ­mas party


Bray People - - NEWS -

THE garda band played and the peo­ple danced at the Bray Com­mu­nity Se­nior Cit­i­zens’ Party last Sun­day af­ter­noon.

The dance floor was full to ca­pac­ity for the hoo­ley, which in­cluded din­ner, drinks, a raf­fle, games and plenty of mu­sic and chat.

Philom­ena Lynott, mother of the late star Phil Lynott, popped in to add to the fun.

‘She joined in and danced away with the girls,’ said lo­cal man Shane Rowan who helped fundraise for the project.

The party very nearly never was as fund­ing needed to be raised in the weeks be­fore­hand.

Lo­cal woman Mandy O’Con­nor and Sharon Earls spear­headed a drive to get the money to­gether to hold the an­nual event.

‘It was a great day put to­gether by all the vol­un­teers,’ said Shane.

‘ Thank you to ev­ery­one who helped us to fund this spe­cial day.’

Santa made an ap­pear­ance, and ev­ery­one joined in a sing song at St Thomas’ hall at the week­end.

Berry Dance Academy also en­ter­tained the guests on the day. Or­gan­is­ers thanked a num­ber of groups, busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als for their help in­clud­ing the Or­der of Malta, MT Cabs, Gavin Cas­sidy and his team in the kitchen, as well as The Es­planade, John Dug­gan, Lino’s, The Coach, Hol­lands, Duffs and Gold­smiths, The Ard­more, Jurek at BIFE, John Cor­co­ran and Ciaran Ma­gen­nety.
