ACTIVE AGE GROUP
The March Get Together,
postponed as a mark of respect to the late Molly Delaney,
R.I.P., was held on April 11th. A small but lively group
gathered in Kelly’s to express their opinions on forming
a committee. Their unanimous opinion was that the present
committee - a working group of Timahoe Community Development
Council - is doing a fine job and , as the old saying goes
“if it’s working, don’t fix it!” So the business aspect
of the meeting was decisively concluded ….. no new committee.
The Table Quiz was a trip down ‘Memory Lane’.
Captain of the winning table, Jimmy fox, conceded that the
three ‘youngsters’ on his team weren’t official members.
With good grace they forfeited their prize to genuine members,
to loud applause and much laughter. No sooner had the presentation
of Easter Eggs been made when the sweet , honeyed sound
of the panpipes floated in the air. Dan charmed us all with
his talented playing. When Dan took a break our members
sang their own favourites ….. and remembered two of our
group who would certainly have enjoyed the night …. Molly
Delaney and Paddy French, R.I.P.
The April Get Together saw our old friends
Ger Casey and Paddy Kelly back to provide some musical entertainment
for the night. They played brilliantly and the evening was
a great success with the fantastic crowd really enjoying
themselves. Thanks as always to Ger Kelly for his hospitality
and to Ger and also to Kate Butler for the sandwiches. The
May Get Together will be held on Wed 30th. May in the Hob,
Kelly’s Bar, at 9.00 p.m. This will be a night of song and
chat so brush up all the old favourites so that you can
join in the singsong. Plans are also afoot to entice a storyteller
to entertain us that night. So come along, meet all your
friends and enjoy the fun.
Many thanks to Emily and Linda
Cosgrove for hosting the April Table Quiz. The questions
were both entertaining and challenging and a most enjoyable
evening was had by all. Many thanks also to all who turned
up on the night and took part and to Ger for his traditional
hospitality. Our monthly Table Quiz on Friday 25th May will
be presented by Mary Fallon. We appreciate Mary’s offer
to co-host the quiz with a friend. Would you like to set
the questions for June or July? Co-presenters welcome. This
is a unique opportunity to add a new dimension to your relationship.
Imagine….. instead of discussing the bills, the baby or
the budget, you could both go into research ……. Gathering
100 questions for the Table Quiz!! That would look impressive
on your C.V.!! Go on …. Give it shot. Contact Margaret at
863508 to book a slot.
The April meeting of the Women’s
Group had a very entertaining and informative demonstration

Avon. The Group meets on the first Thursday of each month
