Extending Condolences from the Corduff Raferagh Community to Siobhán & Adrian Burns and family, Greaghlatacapple, on the passing of Siobhán’s mother Colette Whelan.  May Colette rest in eternal peace.


Condolences – Our community was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Bridie Connolly, Corkishbane this week.  Bridie as we all know, was a lady of gentle disposition, her smile and voice always warm and gentle.  The sudden passing of Bridie’s husband Pat in 1981, left a huge void in their family and shocked our community to the core.  Bridie was left with a young and large family, but every time you met Bridie she was always with members of her family and always gently epitomising her delight as a proud mother and grandmother.   To the Connolly family – Eugene, Peter, Seán, Patrick, Kieran, Bernie, Fiona, Irene and Noeleen, her siblings Jimmy and Mai, and the extended Connolly family we extend our sincere sympathies from the Corduff Raferagh Community.  May Bridie’s gentle soul rest in eternal peace.

Flowers of May – If you missed it …. YOU MISSED IT ! Friday night’s performance in Corduff Raferagh Community Centre was an eye opener for those without a clue of Autism and vindication for those living with Autism.  This is a serious play, as it depicts a serious topic, but it was powerfully written and powerfully portrayed with wit, humour, poignancy and every emotion in between.  It is “Reality TV” at it should be.  Congratulations to Matthew, Eileen & Emma on a compelling production.  Check out the Two & One Productions Facebook page for further performances of this fantastic play.
