ONE of the headline events in the Duhallow social calendar saw upwards of 180 ladies celebrate Women's Little Christmas in the Wallis Arms Hotel, Millstreet last weekend.
On doing so, the diverse representation from a wide catchment area maintained a long standing tradition of leaving the domestic duties aside and enjoying a night out on the night.
A sumptious meal added to the occasion and the popular Kelt provided the music and song in a hectic atmosphere. Celebrating the end of Christmas, the ladies made sure the festive season went out on a high note, having a night of music, fun and laughter.
Those attending the function heard how the previous year's hosting had raised a significant contribution towards the activities of the Millstreet Reach Out Cancer Support Group (ROCS).
"The amount collected last year was €1,186.50, and the generosity of patrons was greatly appreciated," said event organiser Mairead Daly.
"All the money goes towards ROCS, which is serving the Duhallow area," added Mairéad
Indeed, organiser Mairéad ensured a very enjoyable occasion, and she thanked Breda Cremin of the Wallis Arms Hotel, her colleagues and all those who had donated spot prizes for the event.
And such was the success and enjoyment of the latest popular staging, many of those in attendance have already booked their tickets for next year's event.
