WL102FM 3rd Annual Awards Night:
Excitement is building and all the talk locally is about the fine line up of great acts for West Limerick 102fm’s third annual awards night taking place at the Devon Inn on Monday, March 1.  Acts like Paddy O’Brien, newly married Bansha lass, Louise Morrissey, Damien Bowe, Foster and Allen along with Mrs Allen who is a singer in her own right and Nathan Carter who sings the much requested "Face on the Cutting Room Floor" and is travelling from his home in Liverpool. If you frequent the Afternoon Tea Dances in the Hazeltree then you’ll already be familiar with The Dreamers and of course our own Mike Condon will be performing a shortened version of his usual set. Bringing her own inimitable style of comedy to the proceedings will be June Rodgers of Christmas Panto and Mooney Goes Wild fame. Travelling from her home in Newcastle, Co. Down is the lady with the glorious voice Caitlin Murtagh and from Portaferry, Co. Down we welcome multi instrumentalist and singer Stephen Smith. To complete the line up we have Eddie Lee and Catriona, Micheal Collins from Tournafulla and Cork natives Patrick O’Sullivan and his drummer boy son. Special guests will be Jason Travers and Tony Stephens of The Rusty Roosters. With a line up like that doors will open at 7.30pm and the show will get underway at 8.30pm. So, get there early and dance the night away to the best sounds in the West. Admission only €15 and there will be a raffle and spot prizes on the night.

Sympathy is extended to Mary Flaherty, Tubbertoureen on the death of her mother, Mary Fitzgibbon of Croagh, Co. Limerick who died last week.
The sudden and untimely death of Eileen Holly of Woodlands, Tarbert shocked the whole of North Kerry. A well known member of her local community she will be missed by all who knew her but especially by her husband and young family. Sincere sympathy to all family members.
