There will be a Variety show on 29 and 30 October 2011 in Clonown Community Centre, starting at 8 pm each night. Moore Variety Group will perform and there will be lots of local talent. One of the highlights of the show will be comedy sketches by ‘Clonown Chancers’  Drama Group. Last year’s show was a huge success, with the hall packed to capacity on both nights. So come along and bring all your friends for two good nights of entertainment. Fee: €10 (per adult). Proceeds will be divided equally between the church restoration fund and the Clonown field project.
