Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

As March 17 ap­proaches once again, Padd’s Day emerges from the Peat bog mists of ole Ire­land. It is in­deed the day all Pad­dies and their de­scen­dants, green or orange, cel­e­brate the mem­ory of Saint Pa­trick – Pa­tron Saint of All Ire­land. Once again there will be cel­e­bra­tions in the Sligo Street Hall at 7.30pm – only a gold coin at the door. There will be Ir­ish mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment, start­ing with the Cromwell/alexan­dra Pipers and Drum­mers. Then Cromwell’s own Martin Chaney and en­sem­ble, to fol­low – The pro­fes­sional ‘All Male Choir’ from Alexan­dra with a great se­lec­tion of tra­di­tional Ir­ish songs. We have now es­tab­lished The Celtic So­ci­ety of Cromwell with aims to ob­serve St An­drews Day on Novem­ber 30 and St Pa­tricks Day on March 17. Cromwell Dis­trict Com­mu­nity Arts Coun­cil – prac­ti­cal sup­port is much ap­pre­ci­ated. Sur­plus funds con­jured up by the Leprechauns on the night, will be spir­ited to the Re­lay for Life Can­cer ap­peal.
