Around the districts: Our Lady's Island, Rathangan-Cleariestown, Rosslare Harbour, Rosslare Strand

Our Lady's Island: Lotto - Our Lady's Island GAA Club lotto jackpot now stands at €3,400. Patricia Kehoe (seller Kevin Kehoe) shared in the match-three prize last week. Tickets are available weekly for just €1.50 each. Last week's winning numbers were 2, 6, 15 and 21. Your continued support is much appreciated.

Same Old Moon

The Ballycogley Players present their full length play; 'Same Old Moon' directed by Breda Hayes in Our Lady's Island Community Centre this Friday, April 12, at 8 p.m. Admission: €10 at the door, raffle also on the night.

Built around a sequence of recollections from Brenda's life, the play follows her from age nine to her mid-forties, taking us from her early days in Galway through to her return to her adopted home in London. Her life story, as seen through her eyes, portrays her eccentric and sometimes fiery Irish family - her wilful and self-destructive father Desmond, her put-upon, sometimes hot-tempered mother Bridie, her whinging aunt Peace and her puritanical maternal Granny Cleary from Galway.

Hilarious scrapes erupt when Brenda's imagination and intelligence bump against the restrictions of Irish and English customs and society, and through her journey, she learns about attitudes to race, sex and love - sometimes the hard way.

It's a play combining comedy and poignancy throughout and promises to be a good night's entertainment.

Confirmation
