‘Around the Slieve Blooms’: Camross & Coolrain News
Camross Comhaltas shines as Rose of Tralee visits Coolrain
I’m sure the visiting Rose of Tralee Elysha Brennan won’t mind us saying here that the Meath lady was almost upstaged on her visit to Laois. The proud Royal County lass was taken aback by the startling musical talent on show from the local young members of Camross Comhaltas on the occasion of her visit to Sheeran’s of Coolrain.
Camross Comhaltas are holding a very important fundraiser on Thursday February 18th at 8pm in Camross Hall. There will a cheese and wine reception plus a Fashion Show. It’ll be a great night’s fun and it will help provide for this wonderful musical outlet for local children.
Camross Macra jiving classes are on every Tuesday night in the hall between 8pm and 9.30 pm.
