It truly means a lot to us.Today, at 6.30pm-7.30pm, we are having our final AGM in Riverstown Hall to elect new members of the committee for September 2022. All positions are available, so don't be afraid to go for a position if you feel like it! There will be complimentary tea, coffee and pastries available too. Following the AGM, a few members of the committee will be attending the "Zodomo and Thomas McCarthy" concert, held in the Aula Maxima at 8pm today, organised by Maynooth University. Tickets are still available on Eventbrite and its a trad concert not to be missed! https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/arts-and-minds-festival-tickets-320672659557Once again, thank you to everyone who took part in the trad festivities!
