Fifty years of memories

OVER 50 years of memories of the successful Causeway Comhaltas branch have been immortalised in new book, which was officially launched in the north Kerry village on Saturday night.

Local Comhaltas members and several of the original members who founded the first Comhaltas branch in Causeway in 1960 gathered in huge numbers at An Tochar Inn for the launch, which was officiated over by chairman of the County Board of Comhaltas, Tony O'Connor.

The 126-page book - 'Images of Causeway Comhaltas - Past and Present' - will feature a collection of pictures from 1960 to the present day, some of which reflect the changing face of the north Kerry village through the decades.

The book also features photographs of local Comhaltas dancers, singers and musicians past and present.
