NEWS – 21st September 2014


A large contingent of family and friends gathered in Ballykisteen Hotel on Friday night last to celebrate the 100th birthday of  Mary Catherine Buckley, Chancellorsland, Emly.  Mary C., a very active centenarian, greeted her guests who included her many card-playing friends from neighbouring parishes. Mary C., still travels to play ‘45’ on most nights of the week. We join in wishing her a very happy birthday.
