Chrissie Keenan R.I.P.

There was deep sadness with the news that Chrissie Keenan (nee Flynn) had passed away peacefully in St Theresa’s Hospital. Clogheen.

Even though Chrissie’s eye sight was fading she still made the most of life and attended her beloved Our Lady’s Grotto in the church grounds daily.

She will be sadly missed by her son and two daughters, her many nephews and nieces, and especially her great friend Willie Daly and all who knew her. May her kind and gentle soul rest in peace.

Birthday Greetings;

Congratulations to Deirdre Walsh, Brendans Bar who celebrated her 30th birthday last Sunday night, joined by her family and friends in Brendans.

A great night was had by all.


Our trip abroad next year will be to LAKE COMO in the Northern Lake District of Italy for 7 days from 19th to 25th May 2013.

Lake Como is a stunning Alpine lake, bordering Switzerland, and home to George Clooney and many other members of the jet set.

The trip will include a boat trip to Bellagio (known as the pearl of the lake and considered by many to be the most beautiful town in all of Europe) and the picturesque town of Varenna.

There will be a morning at the famous market in the town of Como, a day trip through the Alps to San Moritz in Switzerland and a tour of the city of Milan.

This tour is open to men as well as non ICA members.
