THE KILLESHIN GATHERING
To celebrate the gathering, Killeshin GAA are organising The Killeshin Gathering on Saturday August 3, Bank Holiday Saturday, or all former and current residents of the Killeshin area. It will be a chance for neighbours old and new to come together and catch up on old times and celebrate all that is good about Killeshin. They also hope that Killeshin people who have moved to other parts of the country can make it back for the big night and they would encourage all their members to encourage any relations to return for this special night. For the big night they will be erecting a huge marquee in the GAA grounds and they can promise plenty of music, dancing, food and craic on the night. They will also have a bar on site and they will be doing a live karaoke event hosted by the one and only Flamingo Freddie. Tickets for the event will cost €10 and are available in Killeshin Shop. The Gathering will run from 8pm until late. So let’s make this a night to remember and encourage everyone in Killeshin to come together for the Gathering 2013!!
