Two reminiscence sessions are being held at the Kilcronaghan Centre – between Draperstown and Tobermore and Desertmartin – on Tuesday May, 12 and Tuesday May, 19 .

These totally informal gatherings will be open to everyone and, judging from previous sessions, they will be interesting, amusing and good craic.

So, come along and listen, or share your memories and stories.

Times were hard and people were poor

The old folks leaned over the wee half door

With an old rag ball the boys did play

To help them pass the time away

Or maybe the ladies can relate to this verse -

We went to school to learn to write

And do our homework every night

We learned to knit and turn a heel

Sew a hem and make a seam

Refreshments will be served and the scheduled times are 10.00am to noon. Further details from the centre 796 27826
