Some notes from the evening, more to follow:

Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann was taking place in Cavan town this weekend and this meant one of our number arrived a little late and another left a little early as various members of the singers' group travelled over to take part. Hughie was prompted to sing about the famous Cavan GAA footballer, John Joe O'Reilly (1919 – 1952) from Killeshandra.

Others sang about Cuckoos, Johnny Morrissey and more.

Helen sang about a soldier returning from World War I, damaged and not able to cope with the memory of the horrors witnessed.

Brian made a grand job of I met Frank Halpin's gander couring Nancy Hogan's goose.
