Thursday, Dec 10th Museum Christmas Party a great success

Waterford County Museum Christmas Party

Our Christmas party was held in the museum once again. The space was transformed for the night into an atmospheric venue. The night was planned by Christina Flynn, ably assisted by other museum staff.

A capacity crowd of 70 enjoyed the wonderful food and Hugh O'Donnell provided the music. Niall Hurley also obliged by singing two songs from his new C.D. There was some energetic dancing from some of the ladies present!

Museum President, Willie Fraher welcomed the guests and thanked the staff for all their hard work in the preparation of the event. A special thanks to Winnie and Bridge who came along on the night to help and to Richard and Brian for moving all the tables and chairs. It was greatly appreciated.  He also thanked Coláiste na Rinne and Ard Scoil na nDeise for their assistance.
He referred to the museum's plan for an exhibition next March to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising. This exhibition will highlight the local involvement in the Rising. He appealed for the loan of any relevant material and in particular asked for a copy of the Dungarvan Observer for Easter week 1916 and subsequent weeks.

A great night was had by all.

Happy Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
