Welcome back after the Easter break and we hope you all enjoyed it. Our Easter Raffle was a great success. €600 was raised and the money is going to subsidising school trips and to the Lip Sync competition which is a fundraiser for replacing the roof on the Edel Quinn hall. Many thanks to Spar Kanturk, SuperValu Kanturk and Dunnes Mallow who sponsored the Easter eggs.

Please support the Lip Sync competition as the Edel Quinn Hall is a great venue to hold all local events and we are fortunate as a community to have it.  We were very appreciative to be able to use the hall in December for our Christmas performance 'All Kinds of Everything'
