A cheque for £600 for Dungloe Patients Comfort Fund was presented to Nurse Teresa Mc Nelis at a Bridge function in the Highlands Hotel recently. The playing of the ‘Sarah and Margaret Rose Bowl Bridge Competition’ raised the money. The proud winners were Charlie Whyte and Jimmy Gallagher.
The musical, which was on last week in St. Columba’s Comprehensive School, was up to the usual standard of excellence, which we have come to expect from the school. They played to packed houses every night. It is wonderful to see the amount of talent we have in our midst. Great credit must go to the producer and the musical director and to all the behind the scenes workers who made this show such a success.
Santa came to the Highlands Hotel, Glenties last Sunday on a Fire Engine instead of his sleigh, for the annual Children’s Christmas Party. There was a big crowd of children there to greet him. Before he arrived the Drimnacrosh carol singers got everyone into the Christmas spirit with their beautiful singing. It was a lovely day and needless to say the children enjoyed themselves. The Drimnacrosh carol singers will be singing again at the weekend after Mass on Saturday and Sunday. They are fund-raising for the Drimnacrosh School.
