Clonard call for former Cygnets
IF you were ever a Clonard Cygnet, you are invited to an open night in Clonard Community Centre at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 12, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Clonard Cygnets. The Cygnets were established in 1997 by Michelle Goff who later that year asked her mum Kathleen Lacey to help her out one evening. That was it, Kathleen was hooked! Kathleen went on to run the Cygnets for the next 18 years and anyone who was involved knew you didn't say a bad word about 'Kathleen's babies!' Sadly Kathleen passed away two years ago so the celebration will also be used to celebrate her commitment to the cygnets by planting a rose bush and unveiling a bench in her name in the garden. Some old photos will be on display to rekindle fond memories.
