Draíocht continues to impress audiences. This fast moving traditional music, song and dance show in St. Paul’s Community Centre Clogheen is a must see show this Summer. The remaining August performances are Thursday, August 9, 16 and 23.

Once the doors open, the medieval style setting with flickering candlelight is very welcoming. You are shown to your seat and once seated, tea/coffee is served at your table with delicious homemade scones. You have time to have a chat, and admire your surroundings. The show opens at a slow pace culminating to a pulsating set of reels when the dancers announce their arrival with a burst of colour and sound. The setting is beautiful and in fact adds to the whole experience. Richard Murray on flute and pipes encourages audience participation and will not rest until he succeeds. The musicians also include Ciarán Mulderrig on keyboards, Conor Moriarty on Box and Jessie Healy on fiddle. It is a credit to its Director Michael Ryan and the voluntary group of parents who assist nightly. Lead dancers Deirdra Kiely and Michelle Kelly have a troupe of 40 dancers in their charge this year. The dedication and commitment shown by the young dancers is wonderful to see and their enjoyment is noticeable while performing on stage.

The next show is on Friday, August 9. Doors open at 8.15pm. Ticket €15, €10 for under 12 years. A show not to be missed, for tickets contact - 086 2243323 and at the Vee Valley Fruit and Veg Shop.


Congratulations to Norrie and Kevin Moloney, Lower Main Street, Clogheen, on the birth of their beautiful little daughter Sive, a sister for Elizabeth.


Our Summer outing this year took us to the Silver Springs Hotel for a light lunch, after which we carried on to Cobh to have a look around the Queenstown Story Centre. We were then picked up by the Cobh Road Train and taken on a tour of Cobh, stopping for a short break at St Colmans Cathedral. On our return to the harbour we went to the Waters Edge Hotel for an evening meal.

A big thank you to all who joined us and to those who helped on the day making it a great success.

The Centre would also like to thank all the people who help and support the Centre and its members through out the year, especially Sister Aine and her staff and the public health nurses.

The Centre will close on Friday, August 3, and re-open on Monday, September 3, when we look forward to welcoming everyone back after our Summer Break.
