Caint is Comhrá in August

A fundraising concert for Caint is Comhrá was held on Friday 19th August.

It was a well-attended house event, with local talent performing. The organizers provided a light supper of pizza, gourmet salads, and decadent desserts.

The music was toe-tapping and many wished there was space for dancing to the tunes played.

The cause for the fundraising is their upcoming Irish Language weekend that will be held in late September (details of this event will be forthcoming).

The organizers thanked to all that participate in the event.
