Clodiagh Players is running a two week drama camp for children age 6-10 years, 10-14 years and 14-18 years. This is a great way to introduce children to singing, dancing and drama. The older children will be introduced to producing, directing, stage lighting, stage management. Be sure to register early to avoid disappointment. Camp is from Monday to Friday both weeks starting on Monday July 7 and finishing Friday July 18 with a final show staged on July 18.

The camp will be held in the Clonaslee Community Centre. Application forms were given to National School children and are available in Flynn’s PO. Return completed application forms in a sealed envelope with €10 deposit to the community centre marked ‘For the attention of Clodiagh Players’ before June 20.

Music classes continue weekly until June 26 in the community centre from 4.15pm on Thursdays. Beginners welcome.


National judging taking place now so please use litter bins and clean up after your dog as these have been the main problems with Clonaslee losing points.


School leagues in hurling/camogie and football are now drawing to a close and the line-up for the finals has been determined. We have all thoroughly enjoyed the games so far and are looking forward to seeing which teams will be crowned champions. Best wishes to former pupil and Scoil Bhríde star Nicole Donoghue who is currently on duty with the Irish peacekeeping forces in the Golan Heights on the Syrian border with Israel. We have no doubt she is doing a great job out there. The end of year school mass is on June 25 and will be followed by a performance on the tin whistle by all classes 1st to 6th. We are now two years into our traditional instrumental programme and can’t wait to show case the progress we have made.


Work evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at the heritage centre at 6pm each week so if anyone has an hour to spare please come along.


Whist every Sunday night starting at 9pm sharp in the Parochial Hall. All welcome.
