Glenties Notes on November 1st 2001

The witches and their friends were all out this year again for their annual gathering in the Limelight , Glenties. Since it’s inception three years ago it has become an outstanding success, with many people putting a lot of effort into their costumes. There were witches, of course, monsters, ghosts, demons, mummies, topical celebrities and some very famous faces among the crowd. The Glenties Traders Association would like to thank everyone who made this year’s ‘Ball’ the best one yet. Money raised will go towards local charities and organisations. Hope to see you all again next year! 

On Saturday 13th October 2001 Mary Molloy and Mike Gill were married in the Church of the Holy Family, Edeninfagh. Fr. Patrick Prendergast P.P. Glenties officiated and celebrated Nuptial Mass. Mary is a daughter of Martin and Julia Molloy, Buncrubog, Glenties and Mike is a son of the late Peter and Mary Gill, Main St. Carrick on Shannon. Her parents gave the bride away and she was attended by her sister, Kathleen Bonar, niece, Andrea Molloy and cousin, Emma Craig. Ben Conlon, a friend of the groom was bestman and two other friends, Martin Mc Mahon and Martin Murray were groomsmen.
