This was to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl Nuclear disaster which occurred on April 26th, 1986.

This consisted of young people invited from the surrounding areas to perform music, dance and poetry at the nursing home in Boyle

Speaking at the event, Gerry Mc Cormack said “it’s a testament to the great kindness and will from our residents in supporting worthy causes throughout the year, the most recent being our local Saint Vincent de Paul. Every Christmas our colleagues here in the Plunkett CNU arrange a special Christmas show undertaken by young people from the local areas in Roscommon and Sligo county. The residents get great enjoyment from it and we always look forward to it”.
