Our weekend kicked off with a wonderful art exhibition, in honour of Feile na Bealtaine. Organised by our Active Retired Group. Maura Walshe of IRD Duhallow came to officially open the event. And the quality of the exhibits was tantamount to the great talents that are lying in people,until they are given the help to develop them. And Ms. Walshe had nothing but praise for the group leaders for their work not just in art but for their many other fulfilling and worthwhile activities.The May Bank Holiday weekend was something of a record-breaker. The long hours of nonstop sunshine gave everybody the urge to make the most of their time off, in the wide open spaces.
