Lismore celebrates decade anniversary
Comann Eachdraidh Lios Mor had much to be proud of when it celebrated 10 years since opening its museum with its exhibition room, library, shop and cafe.
The original directors, responsible for the Herculean task of erecting this building, were invited to a meal on Friday March 24 to thank them and to celebrate 10 years of keeping alive and promoting the island’s Gaelic culture.
This was followed by a social evening in the museum, where many other islanders joined the party and were treated to some of the island’s talented performers.
Duncan Livingstone and Laura Cook performed Gaelic song and Arthur Cross, Duncan Ferguson and Shona Wright were instrumentalists.
The meal was cooked and presented by the Lismore Community Cafe staff, led by its new chef Dan Johnstone and his assistant Pia Dellemann. The celebration cake, representing the reconstructed cottage Taigh Iseabal, was made by Katy Crossan.
Anne Livingstone thanked everyone involved and presented Katy MacGregor with a basket of flowers in honour of her 80th birthday.
