Lehanmore Pantomime Una and Her Technicolour Guna is all over after four sold out shows. The Panto was written jointly by Bill Griffin and Carina Mc Nally. As they would say themselves, by the time the show goes on stage a lot of extra material has been added. This makes for a hilarious experience with lines being changed each night depending who is in the audience and what is in the news that week.
Wild Atlantic Challenge event organised by the Lehanmore Community Centre was a tough task. Ride 120KM from Lehanmore across tough roads to Cronin’s yard. Where other people would join the cyclists to climb Carrauntoohil. The highest mountain in Ireland at 1039 meters. Participants had the chance to do both or one of the challenges.
Breakfast was served at six am and then 20 cyclists set off on the tough cycle, with 1300meters of height gain to get them to Cronin’s yard. On the way breakfast was supplied by Supervalu of Kenmare, thanks. Arriving at Cronin’s for about 1PM the cyclists met up with the walkers and in all about 40 people walked up and down the hill in between four and six hours.
Money was raised for Kerry Mountain Rescue and Lehanmore Community centre. Lots of laughs were had during and after the BBQ supplied by the Kerry Mountain Rescue team.
A great event and if it happens again should not be missed. Many thanks to the organisers.
