SINGING FOR FUN.
There was a great turnout for the inaugural gathering of our singing group. We had fun doing our exercises and succeeded in singing in three part harmony under the bubbly, motivational director Anne Moylan.
We will meet on Wednesday afternoons in the Club House from 2.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. until Easter -5 weeks ( €3 per session). Be there about twenty past two and ready to sing at half past. Do join us, make new friends and learn some new songs and harmonies.

TRIP ON WEDNESDAY, 2OTH MARCH TO THE EPIC MUSEUM.
We plan to travel on the train departing Kilkenny at 8.25 a.m. The Luas from Heuston Station stops outside the museum. It is €10 to visit on a Wednesday and it is self-guided. You can, if you wish, get an audio guide for €1.
Some people could spend all day here I think.(look it up on the internet)
The afternoon could be free to visit the art gallery, another museum or for shopping therapy.
Return home on train at 5.35 OR 6.35 or earlier if you wish.
Do let me know if you are interested in this trip.
THE IRISH EMIGRATION MUSEUM(EPIC)
You won’t find leprechauns or pots of gold here, but you’ll discover that what it means to be Irish expands far beyond the borders of Ireland through the stories of Irish emigrants who became scientists, politicians, poets, artists and even outlaws all over the world. Discover Ireland from the outside in and find out why saying “I’m Irish” is one of the biggest conversation starters, no matter where you are. ‘
RTAI NATIONAL CONVENTION
Some of us are attending the National Convention of RTAI on Tuesday next in Dublin.We are allowed two delegates but anyone is free to attend.
