DONATIONS ARE already flowing in for a fund to pay for extensive work on the organ at St. Aidan's cathedral in Enniscorthy. To boost the fund a 'Christmas in St Aidan's' concert is being organised for Friday, December 14 (8 p.m.). The line-up on the night will feature a range of choirs and solo singers. It is hoped that the concert will become an annual seasonal attraction. Tickets cost €10 each.
The diary at Enniscorthy public library is looking full, with events including: County Wexford VEC computer training (Tuesdays and Wednesdays); County Wexford Childcare Network seminar, Monday, November 26; storytelling sessions for primary school students ( Wednesday mornings); Christmas story time, and arts and crafts with a seasonal theme, Saturdays, November 24 and December 8; Slaney writers' group meeting, Thursday, December 6.
The annual Christmas fast in aid of Concern will raise funds for famine stricken East Africa. Enniscorthy Chamber of Commerce is once more backing the 24 hour fast.
Volunteers are asked to abstain from food for any 24 hour period between Saturday, December 1 and at 12 noon on Sunday, December 2. Contact (053)9235287. See on-line CONCERNFAST.ORG for full details.
