The Tullyallen Christ­mas Tree light­ing cer­e­mony was a great suc­cess and the or­gan­is­ers would like to ex­tend their ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the peo­ple that make this pos­si­ble ev­ery year. There are just too many to men­tion each in­di­vid­u­ally but a spe­cial word of thanks to the fol­low­ing,

Kevin Carolan, Niall Rus­sell & Santa! Mr. Moo­nan and his won­der­ful singers from Tullyallen Na­tional School, Eoghan Don­nelly for his won­der­ful pip­ing skills. Fr Doo­ley, The Gar­dai, es­pe­cially Derek O Donoghue who pro­vide much needed traf­fic con­trol each year. This year, we would also like to thank Pat and Stu­art Carolan from the Morn­ing Star who en­sured that the set up ran smoothly. Their as­sis­tance in or­gan­is­ing and pro­vid­ing the won­der­ful re­fresh­ments for all af­ter­wards is much ap­pre­ci­ated. We also had won­der­ful vo­cals from Kevin O Sul­li­van that Stu­art or­gan­ised. To Ni­amh Sher­win Barry and the Ir­ish Fairy Door Com­pany who fa­cil­i­tated a re­quest from the Christ­mas Fairy to come and live by the tree and fi­nally, to Adrian Gog­a­rty who kindly gave her a home!!

With­out these peo­ple and so many oth­ers, it would not be pos­si­ble each year and we are grate­ful for their sup­port. The Com­mit­tee would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to wish ev­ery­body a very Happy & Healthy Christ­mas & New Year.


Tullyallen Slimming World classes are on ev­ery Thurs­day. The first class is 5pm and the sec­ond is 7pm. Amanda will be there giv­ing plenty of in­spi­ra­tion, mo­ti­va­tion and en­cour­age­ment to ev­ery­one who comes along.


The or­ga­niz­ers of the Trac­tor run would like to say to ev­ery­one in­volved in Tullyallen Trac­tor Run that they wish you all a very happy new year. They hope that 2019 will bring you ev­ery­thing you de­sire (and that you’ll all be ready to tog out for the next trac­tor run). A big thank you once again to ev­ery­one who sup­ported the run last over Christ­mas. They can­not thank you all enough for your con­tin­ued sup­port over the past 4 years and we hope that it will con­tinue into the fu­ture. With­out all of you, this event would not be pos­si­ble. With­out you, rais­ing these tremen­dous amounts of money for char­ity would not be pos­si­ble. Un­til next year....
