One of the highlights of the festive season took place on December 10th in Glounthaune Church when Ms.O’ Riordan organised our annual Christmas Carol Service. A large crowd turned up to hear a selection of choirs from this parish, this school, and from parishes around east Cork and the city. We also had individual contributers. The evening had so many highlights and all present declared themselves uplifted following the performances. Others declared that Christmas had now really started for them such was the Christmas spirit engendered! Thanks of course must go to Ms. O’Riordan for once again organising this excellent event as well as to Moni Fadairo who as presenter did such a great job. Finally over €300 was raised on the night from voluntary contributions to St. Vincent de Paul.
