This year’s Cashel and Rosegreen Parish Journal was launched on Sunday by Halla na Feile President Richard Hennessy.
Richard served on the management Committee of Halla na Feile for a number of years and was a former Chairman. Speaking at the launch, he acknowledged the many volunteers present and said they volunteers give great service to Halla na Feile as well as to their own clubs and organisations. He said there is a great need for more volunteers, in particular he appealed to people who have a few hours to spare, to give of their time to the Halla. Richard is one of the stalwarts of the weekly bingo, calling the numbers every Saturday along with the other volunteers. He said he was honoured to launch this year’s Journal knowing it reflects community life in Cashel and Rosegreen. He complimented editor Eibhlin Ni Riain and the many contributors and said it will be a great read over Christmas and for posting to family and friends. The first copy of the journal was presented to Paddy Downey who is the longest serving officer and a trustee of the Halla.
Now is an exciting time for Halla na Feile with the building works about to commence.
