Panto success – Once again the annual St. Enda’s Christmas pantomime proved to be an outstanding success and last Sunday night the cast and crew received a well deserved standing ovation as they brought the curtain down on fours days of frivolity in St. Joseph’s Hall. Many thanks to everyone who gave so much commitment over the past number of months in order to entertain over 2,000 people who attended the various shows since last Thursday. A special word of thanks to the producers Alison McElhatton, Emma McFarland, Paul Groogan and Orlágh Devine who made it all happen.
All-Star nominations – Congratulations to St. Enda’s senior players Stephen Mullan, Barry Tierney, Joe McMahon, Conan Grugan, Aaron Grugan, Conor Meyler and Ronan O’Neill, who have all received nominations for the Gaelic Life Ulster Club All-Stars. Laurence Strain has also been nominated for Football Manager of the year and Conor Meyler has been nominated for Ulster Young Player of the year. Everyone is encouraged to vote for our players at www.gaeliclife.com
Ulster Scór semis – The panto was a great way to round off a highly successful season for St. Enda’s, but for some club members, the work continues and this Saturday evening the club will be represented in three acts in the Ulster Scór na nÓg semi-finals in Corcahan Community Centre, Co. Monaghan. Good luck to the Ceili and Set Dancing teams and to Emily Duffy in Recitation.
