Mill­street ladies hit the tiles for Nol­lag na mBan

The Corkman - - NEWS - John TAR­RANT

A LONG stand­ing tra­di­tion on Nol­lag na mBan saw ladies across North Cork take a night off any chores they may have had, to cel­e­brate the end of Christ­mas.

The Mill­street host­ing lived up to its billing, mark­ing the close of a hec­tic few weeks of prepa­ra­tion and cook­ing – and on the night the ladies en­joyed a cel­e­bra­tory meal and par­tied into the night in the sur­rounds of the Wal­lis Arms Ho­tel.

Strictly fe­male com­pany, the male folk left at home with the chores. And so it proved, one of the so­cial events in the so­cial cal­en­dar saw ladies trip the light fan­tas­tic at the Lit­tle Christ­mas Party.

Pa­trons from through­out Duhal­low con­vened, tast­ing mulled wine on ar­rival and a sump­tu­ous meal di­gested. The pop­u­lar Di­a­mond Sis­ters pro­vided the mu­sic, adding to a hec­tic at­mos­phere as ladies hit the floor to the songs of Johnny Cash, Nathan Carter and many more.

On cel­e­brat­ing the end of Christ­mas, the ladies paid a fit­ting ac­knowl­edge­ment to the stag­ing to savour a night of mu­sic, fun and laugh­ter. Or­gan­iser Billy Shee­han and staff en­sured a very en­joy­able oc­ca­sion with a host of spot prizes adding to the at­mos­phere of a ter­rific so­cial night out on the town with pro­ceeds sup­port­ing the Mill­street based Reach Out Cancer Sup­port

(ROCS).
