Christmas Party Juvenile – A superb afternoon entertainment was had on Saturday the 11th December last at Club Arás as
Eochaill Og celebrated it’s Christmas party for all it's juvenile members, family and friends. Organised by the Parent's Committee they transformed Club Arás into a winter wonderland with Santa's own Grotto. On entry each child was given a goodie bag and entertained for 2 hrs with arts & crafts, face painting, a visit to Santa where all children received a present and a disco music was supplied by DJ Barry. Santa was absolutely fabulous on the day and had a good chat with all the children and adults that visited him. Over 130 kids really enjoyed themselves and danced and played away the afternoon heading home exhausted. Thanks to all who helped organized this event and the helping out clean up afterwards. It was great afternoon at Club Arás and super to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they went up to talk to Santa….
