Nenagh Christmas Tree Festival 2017

November 28th, 2017

St. Cronans are delighted to announce that our Nenagh services, have been chosen as the beneficiary of the annual Christmas Tree Festival taking place in Nenagh this year.

The Christmas Tree Festival is hosted by St Mary’s Church of Ireland, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary from 13th -17th December 2017, from 1-6 PM, ending on Sunday 17th with the Carol Service at 4 PM.

Last year was a wonderful success with beautiful trees of every description. This year promises to be even better!

Vote for your favourite tree in three categories:

• Business or Retail, kindly sponsored by the Nenagh Chamber of Commerce

• Individual

• Organisation

Back by popular demand are the amazing Afternoon Teas. There will be seasonal produce and craft items for sale and a raffle with prizes to suit everyone.

Seasonal music is planned. We will have a Lucky Dip for the young ones and a Quiz Sheet to test your brain!

A Prayer Tree will be there for some personal time for reflection. New this year is a Christmas Tree colouring competition for primary schools.

Admission to the Nenagh Christmas Tree Festival is €3 each, with accompanying children free(every child must be accompanied by an adult).  Afternoon teas – €5 each.   We hope you will pop along to support the festival and St Cronan’s Association.

Would you like to display a tree?

You can decorate your exhibit, with a theme if you wish—your ideas will be original no matter what! An organisation or retailer may wish to theme the tree appropriately and/or leave leaflets or brochures at the base of the tree, but remember, no related selling is allowed.

To exhibit a tree is free! To enter your tree please text 086 8206514 or email by 8th December with:

• Your name

Visit to Thomond Park

On the 6/9/2017 Stuart O’Mahony,  Michael Fennelly, Eddie Moroney and Anthony Shoer left St Cronans in Roscrea  for the long awaited visit to Thomond Park .

They had the full stadium tour of the museum and a film plus a visit to the pitch side, the dressing rooms and post-match interview area.  The spectacularly interactive museum showcases the proud heritage of Munster rugby and features an impressible range of memorabilia.  ‘We are Munster’ portrays the tradition and history of the club and the unique bond it shares with its loyal supporters.  After the tour the boys went to the Parkway Shopping Centre for some lunch a great day was had by all.

Red Group Social Project 2017

This year the Red Group  of St Cronans Services chose  to create a market stall as a project, the idea behind this was to allow the community to see some of the great work that the service users produce.

This took place at the local farmers market at Scart, Roscrea. Items for sale included vegtable plants,  flowers grown in the center garden, hanging baskets and flower tubs. Crafts included fairy houses picture frames, key holders, memo boards amongst many other items.

The market stall proved to be a great success with a lot of support from the local community.
