The Ballyhahill Going Strong club enjoyed the night’s activities and some of their members did party pieces. Daisy entertained all with her story of “Minding the House” and her lively recitation of “Rita Danaher’s Jennett.” Joe Kelly, Pauline Cussen and Maureen Long sang some songs. Katie Pitt, from Glin, had the group singing “I’ll take you home again, Kathleen”. John Prendergast from Limerick 95fm recorded some of the evening’s performance for his Saturday morning programme.
