The Christmas celebrations and the New Year have commenced.  The Churches of Croom and Banogue were packed to capacity for the Christmas Eve Vigil Mass.  Fr. Eamon O’Brien officiated at Croom and Fr. Joe Kennedy P.P officiated in Banogue.  Many emigrants returned home to the Maigueside to be with their families during the holy time of Christmas.  The traditional St. Stephen’s day Wren day is no more.  Racing took place at Greenmount and andrew-mcnamara-copy-1.jpgAndrew McNamara participated at  Leopardstown in the Christmas festival racing on St. Stephen’s day when he brought off 3 winners an outstanding achievement and his Santa surely came somewhat belated but was all the more enjoyable when he allowed the local punters to put in their pockets the very much welcomed winnings.  John Thomas McNamara had a successful win at Dromhane point to point on Sunday last. A children’s meeting was organised by the Limerick Harriers on Sunday 6th January at Patrickswell and the moneys collected at the entrance gate went towards the Oncology Unit.
