September Mona Newsletter

_________September St. Kevins News__________


St. Kevin’s in Staplestown was turned into a "Wild West" setting on August Bank Holiday Sunday night. Cowboys from Knockanally, Ovidstown, Hortland, Gilltown, Ballinafagh and other remote outback’s of the Tir Na Mona area turned up.

One Indian from the Sioux Tribe made a brave (excuse the puns) effort at drinking firewater and performing a war dance (or was it a love dance?) that the "Saloon Gal" had taught.

Congratulations to Debbie Roberts and Stephen Stanley who won the Best Cow Persons! Awards.

The Indian award was a one horse race, with the Sioux Indian cantering home.

The "Saloon Gal" entertained some lonely Cowboys from the Kilmurry Ranch, and sent them on the trail by dawn, before the posse caught them.

Full marks to Alan Byrne for the interior design of the hall, the tables and the signs. Thanks to Willie Kane, David Curtiss and Liam 0’Farrell, Fergal McKeon, Bernard Owens, Sean Flannery for the use of his "Dance Floor", Edward Cummins for the straw bales, to Delores Kennedy, Morna Hosey, Mary Holton Aileen Saunders and Bernadette Crean for food and ticket sales. Thanks to St. Kevin’s for the use of the facility. Thanks to Alan Brerton and his band and thanks to Andy Noone for his help, and congratulations to him on winning the raffle prize which was donated by Coillte.

So long until next year!
