The cost is €10 per person and a great night of fun and laughter is guaranteed.  Prize for the best dressed on the night and lots of spot prizes to be won. MC for the event will be Pilot Conway.

Rainbow"Prayer/Poem in Winter Days

God consoles with red of warmth and Love

Love gives me support

God consoles with gold of sun

His light doesn't overwhelm me 

God consoles with green of the new beginning

Life continues as we travel this way together.
