Sunday 22nd July was a bright but changeable sort of evening but it did not deter the dedicated band of treasure hunters from the parish and beyond who left from McKenna Community Centre for the annual treasure hunt. 36 cars set off and once again the treasure hunters were challenged by the clues set by Joe Gilmore.
After a pleasant couple of hours spent searching for clues around the local town lands within the parish and surroundings, treasure hunters returned to McKenna for a delicious supper provided by the Parish Social Committee.
After all those present were fed and watered, Joe and Marie Fowler did the ballot and Father Neeson called out the lucky tickets. Then we waited with baited breath for the answers to the clues which were called out by Joe Gilmore. There were some gasps around the hall as Joe disclosed the answers to the clues. Then the winners were declared.
1st – Jimmy Hughes
2nd – Bridie Ennis
3rd – Gerard Hughes
4th – John McNamara
