BINGO As those of you who come to bingo on Thursday nights know the crowds are quite big and parking is not easy. A few people who live in the area have problems coming and going to their houses. Can I ask you to please be aware of this and make sure that you are not blocking residents. Thank you.
FR. PAT AHERN is one of our own, a native of Leitrim Middle, a member of a very musical family and the man who had the vision to set up what is now known as National Folk Theatre of Ireland, “Siamsa Tire”. His new book called “Forging the Dance” is a history of his journey from small beginnings, starting with the choir in St. John’s Church, Tralee to Teach Siamsa in Finuge in 1974 and Carrig in the Kerry Gaeltacht in 1995. His journey finally led to the purpose built theatre, Siamsa Tire in Tralee in 1991. Siamsa has played in theatres all over the world, from Tralee to the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, to Broadway. You could say Siamsa was the forerunner of Riverdance, it brought a new insight to Irish dance and song in the more traditional sense. Fr. Pat is still going strong. His legacy is testament to a man who saw no boundaries, a man who saw the opportunities and grabbed them with both hands. Congratulations to you, Fr. Pat, may you enjoy many more years of good health.
