A very enjoyable evening was had by all in attendance at the Clubhouse in Newmarket-on-Fergus as CLG Cora Chaitlín launched Tradraí 2015.

Music was provided by Brid O’Gorman and her very talented group of young musicians which kept everyone entertained prior upon entering. Chairperson Freddy McInerney welcomed those present in the opening address and thanked the editorial committee for their hours of endless work in putting together a fantastic publication.

McMahon praised the team at McNamara printers for the finished product. He commended Bridie O’Looney, Ryan Corry, Annmarie Meehan and Con Woods for working alongside him on the editorial committee and applauded them for their contributions.
