The South Of The Border Ballroom Dancing experience is a project directed by Maura Logue and produced by Geraldine McGrath.
Funded by The Voice Of Older People, the 'show' will have the Ballytour Players will be there to spice up the ambiance and make this 'painting of nostalgia' a real treat for everyone.
... Maura also added that the event will be tainted with a touch of humour so be ready says Maura, to be asked to dance by the Brylcream boys with a glint in their eye, and watch out for the piercing eyes of the priest's housekeeper, and for the gentlemen there'll be girlins galore up for the asking!
Waltzes, the Fox Trot and other tunes reminiscent of the 1950s will be playing to complement the overall atmosphere and set out the nostalgia of the 'good'ol years'.
So if you're looking for a night of fun and if you want to set foot and join in the party for a big night of Jiggery Pokery, come on in! Tickets will be available at the door at the cost of 5€ only.
The project also benefits from the enthusiastic support of Martina O'Sullivan and the ladies will also help to coordinate a fundraising raffle for the Bluestack Foundation on the night. So go get your dancing shoes on and enter into the world of the Ballroom of Romance.
German discount store ALDI are appealing a decision by Donegal County Council refusing planning permission for a store in Donegal Town ...
Donegal County Council turned ALDI's application down on the basis of the store's location and its distance from the "retail core" of Donegal Town.
The German firm wants to open the store at the retail park, which was originally granted planning permission by the council in 2008.
An objection was later overruled by An Bord Plenala and the development was given the green-light in December of that year ...
A decision is expected early next year.
... Two residences were broken into on Sunday night.
Hundreds of euro worth of property was taken, including mobile phones and Sat Nav devices
Two men in their late teens were arrested yesterday evening and brought to Donegal Town Garda station where they were later charged ...
Gardai in Donegal Town are reminding home-owners to ensure their properties are secure at all times.
The Gardai are right! These boyos (the thieves) know that people are lax in Donegal because stuff like this doesn't happen often, and that people are more trusting (as it's not as anonymous as a city like Dublin). So these bucks know someone will leave the door unlocked while they're out, or a back window open. So be careful, and don't let these lads take advantage of you.
