Twenty-five ladies of Ballinode ICA enjoyed a night at the Garage theatre on 16th December called “A Celebration of Christmas”. It was a fabulous night’s entertainment, and everyone felt we should make it an annual event. We also enjoyed a beautiful meal in the Four Seasons Hotel beforehand. There is a great line-up of activities planned for the Springtime. Pilates classes will start on Thursday 18th January in Tydavnet CC and Line dancing will recommence in Tydavnet CC on Tuesday evenings. The One-pot meal demo will be arranged for February as well as makeup classes for those interested. These classes are funded by a grant from Monaghan ETB and a Go for Life Grant. Thank you to these sponsors and the committee for applying for the grants. Our meeting concluded with a lovely demonstration from Emma McQuaid Make up Artistry who gave us lots of hints and tips on preparing our makeup for the holiday season. A lovely supper was provided by Mary McKenna and Ellen Sharkey. Meeting tonight Thursday11th January and Deirdre McCormack will entertain us with a quiz.
