Lorrha Variety Group will be presenting its latest production, “Canaries”, a good, light comedy written by Bernard Farrell, in Lorrha Community Hall from Friday 29th, Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December  at 8.30pm and tickets are priced at €10.  Directed by Diane Dagg, it has a cast of twelve people and is a comedy about Tommy, Marie and Marie’s father, who go on holiday to the Canary Islands and meet up with Jane, Richard and their gang. As the action unfolds, it emerges that many of the characters are not all they seem to be, with hilarious consequences. Tommy and Marie end up having a holiday that they will never forget – but not necessarily for the right reasons.

Social Dancing.

Social dancing continues in the GAA clubhouse on Friday night with Twice Shy providing the music this coming Friday night. Dancing from 9.30pm to 12.30am
