Your used and unwanted clothes could convert into badly needed sports kits for Leitrim County Girls U-14 Gaa Team.Could you take a few minutes and gather even one bag of used clothes? And all together those part worn clothes would make enough money to make a difference to our county sporting girls.Your Spring cleaning would get off to a great start by checking your used clothes, linens, paired shoes and handbags that you no longer need, and packing a bag to donate to this Community Clothes Drive. You might even make extra space in your wardrobe for new fashion, maybe?Unfortunately we can’t take duvets or pillows, but rest assured old pyjamas and everything else are welcome.See the list of names and numbers below to find the nearest drop off point to you. If you gather a bag, and need it collected, we can organise that too.

Local Notes Jan 20th

Fenagh Drama Troupe
Following the success of the last 2 years, Fenagh Drama Troupe are back this year with another production.  The play, “I’m the One for You” is a 3 act comedy written by Jimmy Keary. Produced by newcomers, Teresa Ellis and Bernie Flynn, the story centers on poor Gerry O’Malley, a widowed farmer who lives alone and has a cleaner who comes in once a week.  Unfortunately, the cleaner has taken a shine to Gerry and matters become very complicated as events unfold. With many recognisable faces from previous productions plus a few new ones, you are guaranteed a night of laughter in Fenagh Community Centre on Thursday 30, Friday 31 January and Saturday 1 February.  Tickets cost €10 and are available each night with curtains at 8:30pm.
