COOLEY GENEALOGICAL AND HISTORICAL SOCIETY – ‘SOCIAL NIGHT’ – 2nd October.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING OSCAR

MATT MURPHY AND STEPHEN BURNS, ACTORS, WILL PERFORM THEIR ‘WILDE TRIBUTE’ BEFORE EMBARKING ON THEIR AMERICAN TOUR IN LONG’S PUB, GRANGE, COOLEY, ON THURSDAY NIGHT, OCTOBER 2ND, 2014, at 8.00 pm.

There will be an interval where a question/answer session will be included!
Life’s like a play: it’s not the length, but the excellence of the acting that matters.
They will provide a lively night’s entertainment combined with a little light relief and laughter or as Wilde would have put it ‘laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one’.

Wilde Quotes
When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life;
now that I am old I know that it is.
I see when men love women. They give them but a little of their lives.
But women when they love give everything.
Women are made to be loved not understood.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

REFRESHMENTS SERVED – ADMISSION 5 EURO – EVERYBODY WELCOME.

If interested in Genealogy Classes – please phone 0851833110.

More recently, over the past year Ann Marron from the Netwell Centre says they have turned their attention to developing supports for families living with memory loss.

Liam Neeson, Jeremy Irons, and Jon Snow get behind Dundalk book

Two of Hollywood’s leading actors, Liam Neeson and Jeremy Irons, along with Channel 4’s celebrated newscaster Jon Snow, have commented enthusiastically on the recently published Dundalk novel A Mad and Wonderful Thing.

 

Liam Neeson, yesterday, commented on the locally set book: ‘I thought it excellent. Deeply satisfying and moving. I also think that sufficient time has passed since the Good Friday Agreement to, at last, have a novel that goes inside the head of one of the ‘Troubles’ protagonists and hear the pros and cons of the conflict (to take up arms or not,) told in an original and exciting way. All Mark’s hard
