The Christmas Party night of Craobh Sheain Ui Cheallanain in Hayes Hotel on 5th January 2011 was a great success and very enjoyable.

We thank our Set Club friends from Gortnahoe, Urlingford, Cashel, Thurles, Clonoulty and welcome newcomers Templemore group, who brought some visitors from Italy.

Thanks to Marcus Wilson and friends, you all helped to make the night a good event. Danny Webster's music was very lively and gave a great lift to the dancers. We had two songs from Nora Butler "Where the Mulcair river flows " and a new one for Nora "Tipperary far away", which will feature in her second CD, to be released soon. Thanks Nora and Pat Swan, good friends to Thurles Branch for many years. Craobh Sheain Ui Cheallanain wish our representatives the best of luck in the County final of Ceol an Gheimhridh this Sunday 16th January in Newport at 1.30pm.
