Ballymacoda Community Gather ‘Round the Fire’


On Friday, 2 November, the Social Committee Ladysbridge Community Council will fling open the doors of Ballymacoda Hall to welcome one and all from the area to a great night of free entertainment. “Na Cáirde” will be the main musical contributors on the night, though many local singers and musicians will receive the noble call to carry on the session. MC, Mary Colbert has been charged with keeping proceedings tipping along smoothly.

As well as songs and stories, tea and treats, there will be a raffle for some great prizes. Ticket prices for the raffle will, as usual, be €2 a strip or 3 for €5, and the proceeds will be used to offset some of the costs of the evening.


Speaking with The East Cork Journal Christine Conway (Treasurer of Ballymacoda / Ladysbridge Community Council) said “We host this evening twice a year and it’s always fun with great local involvement and support. Usually, as regular attendees will know, we finish off the evening with some dancing!”
