Fethard Carol Singing

Photographed above are some of the large group of children and adults who took part in the carol singing in Fethard on Turesday 20th December. The children were treated to a special treat while singing 'Let it Snow' at Lonergan's Bar when they were showered with snow in the pubs 'Winter Wonderland'. Later all were treated to sweets in the Abymill Theatre after singing for the attendance at the weekly bingo. Over €700 was raised for the homeless.
