In a deviation from the normal lecture format the societies will be hosting a dramatised reading of a play by well known Clare historian and writer Kieran Sheedy entitled "Sarah Byrne’s Photograph".  This play was inspired by a photograph of Sarah Byrne, a feisty Dublin-born woman who along with her husband and four other Wicklow rebels from the 1798 Rebellion was deported to New South Wales in 1805.  Sarah’s life took a number of dramatic turns which are recalled in ten inter-linked monologues by three actors, each representing Sarah at pivotal periods in her life. Kieran will be available to answer questions afterwards.  A fee of £5 euro applies to non-members, and all are welcome.  For further information contact 087-9165916 or emgreene@eircom.net

Junior Genealogist” - Mortuary Card Schools’ Collection Project

Clare Education Centre in association with the Dept. of Tourism, Culture & Sport and Clare Roots Society has organised a Mortuary Card Collection project for Co. Clare primary schools during the month of November. The aim is to

document deceased Clare people during the month of the Holy Souls, before their memory is lost forever.  Schools will copy the cards, returning them immediately to their owners, and send the copies to Clare Education Centre in Ennis.

Kildysart Squash Club: after an absence of ten years Kildysart squash club has opened its doors again. There was a massive crowd who came in, to have a look at the complex. It had fallen in to disrepair but with a huge effort from the

committee, their friends and relatives have managed to transform it back to its former glory.   The committee would like to take this opportunity to thank

everyone who came down and helped in any way.  There was a big entry in our first blitz.  It was won by Cormac McMahon’s team which included Gerry Grace, Ger Donnellan., Dermie O’Sullivan and Christina Watson. Runners up Ger

O’Donnell, Donal Moloney, Sean Casey, Flan Ginnane and Mairead Cusack. 

Membership is now been taken.  Contact Christina Watson 6832308.

Notice from Killaloe Diocesan Office.

Trocaire are currently carrying out a door to door promotion campaign in this area to highlight their work and to encourage people to sign up to a

Direct Debit Scheme. This campaign is aimed at those who may not

contribute to the Lenten Appeal and people should feel under no obligation to support this campaign if you have already supported Trocaire in the Haiti Appeal and in the Lenten Appeal. In addition we would encourage elderly people not to divulge bank account details to any stranger at the door no matter how good their accreditation might seem to be. The Diocese and Trocaire thank the parish for your recent very generous contributions in these financially difficult times.
