Artistic Director Joe Moore has put together another fabulous program of music and dance for the forthcoming Millennium Choir concerts in Mohill and Carrick-on-Shannon.
In commemoration of the Carrick 400th anniversary, Carrick native and rising star Ailie Blunnie of the multi-talented Blunnie family of Summerhill, has penned “And Sleep is Sweet in Carrick Town,” a lively anthem reviewing Carrick’s history and based upon one of the poems by Carrick-born poet and satirical writer Susan L. Mitchell (1866 – 1926).
The anthem has been a treat to learn for the choir, and it is predicted to remain long in the musical tradition of Leitrim and possibly further afield.

A verdict of accidental death was recorded at the inquest of a cyclist who died after she was knocked down and dragged under a truck more than six years ago.
Nadia Lescuier (31), who was originally from France, had been living in Limerick for less than six months when the fatal accident happened at Plassy Road, Castletroy on October 18, 2006.
Limerick Coroners Court heard last Wednesday that Ms. Lescuier and her husband, Jacky Lebigire, were cycling home from work to their apartment at Mallow Street in the city center at around 4 p.m. when a lorry pulled across Ms. Lescuier as it was entering a construction site near the entrance to the University of Limerick.

There is no disputing the rising popularity of white-collar boxing as a fundraising event, and one of the most eagerly anticipated white-collar events takes place on Easter Saturday night when the Longford Arms Hotel will host the “Brawl in the Hall.”
“Brawl in the Hall” is a white-collar boxing event in memory of the late Angela Rogers, late of Harbour Row, Longford Town, who passed away in April 2012. Family and friends have come together to organize the fundraiser in her memory and to give something back to the hospice.
One of the organizers is her son, Noelie, who told the Leader: “Few of us do not know either a neighbor, friend, or close family member who has not been affected by a terminal illness and know the marvelous work that the Longford Hospice do.”
