Drumcliffe: all the news

Halloween night

A big thank you to everyone who supported the Oxfield Halloween Party for kids, which went down a 'treat' last Wednesday evening. Every character and creature imaginable seemed to be there, so congrats to all the kids and the parents on all the great costumes. Thanks also to DJ Michael 'Mario' Farrell, to those who loaned their playhouses for the 'trick-or-treat' village, and of course to our trusty team of volunteers for all their time and effort.

The CosCos Group would like to say a big thanks to all the participants and volunteers who supported the recent Rathcormac 8km Fun Walk and Run.
