Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others

Our long-awaited G4M&O programme kicked off on Saturday morning last. Even though the day was wet and miserable, it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of the first recruits. We couldn’t have asked for a more good-humoured and enthusiastic group to get G4M&O off the ground. Hopefully now that the first day is over and there wasn’t a mention of laps or sit-ups, more of you will sign up over the coming weeks. On the plus side, it looks like we won’t have any bother with the social side of things anyway – it shouldn’t be too long before there’s a night out involved! So if you’re interested in a bit of light-hearted fun with exercise and a small bit of football thrown in, we look forward to seeing you next Saturday morning at 10am.

Bealtaine Celebrations in Ballinamore Library
As part of the Bealtaine Celebrations Ballinamore Library is showing a series of old Crafts and Customs videos starting with “Making Mud Turf” on Tuesday 6th May at 7pm:  This was filmed in Cloone in 1993 and should bring back many memories to those who remember the days of making mud turf and working on the bog.  In the coming weeks we have “Traditional Farming”  on Tuesday 13th May . “Pilgrimage or Patten to a Holy Well” on Tuesday 20th May and “The Tinsmith” on Tuesday 27th May.  All of these have been filmed in Leitrim.  Remember: Admission is free with all welcome.
