On Thursday evening, 22nd November, whist players from the parish and neighbouring parishes and indeed further afield gathered in McKenna Hall for our Annual Whist Drive.
This year there were fifteen full tables of players who kept a steady pace of games until half time was called and a delicious supper was served. Plenty of time then to catch up with players who may not have met since last year.
Our new Parish Priest, Fr Alexander, was on hand to draw the winning tickets for the raffle and also for the Special Draw. Fr Neeson also was on hand! Then it was time to announce the winners of the Whist Drive before distributing the prizes.
