Summer of 2016

While rooting through our archives recently, I happened upon a bunch of photographs taken one balmy summers evening {14th of June} back in 2016; when Norah’s class in Rahan linked up with her class in Ballyboy for a mighty evenings craic in Dan & Molly’s. Thanks to John Murphy for capturing the images on the night and Betty Digan for putting this collage of pics together. Also thanks to the great Norah Carroll for keeping order on this motely crew and to Molly for maintaining this fine premises which has always been a staunch supporter of our cultural tradition. Looking forward to when we can all meet up again and rise sparks from the floor, or the street!
