Santa in Carrickroe: Santa always pays an early visit to Carrickroe and uses it to find out what some children wish to get at Christmas. Of course he is so busy at this time of year going from place to place that he has little time for the production of late demands but hopefully he will be able to supply what is needed. It is difficult for him to know the number of specific items he will need but he always tries his best to fulfil requests. He arrived in Carrickroe on Sunday December 9th. It was a wet night for travelling but with local assistance he arrived in great form to be greeted by a huge crowd. His first duty was to switch on the Deravoy Lights, which he did successfully. Then inside he took up his position on Stage and families queued up to get a personal meeting and a present for each young person.  In the meantime there was a wonderful performace from the Deravoy Youth Choir. There was plenty for the youngsters to do while they waited their chance to get to the centre of attraction - Santa. Refreshments were served and a seasonal atmosphere was all around assisted by the well decorated Community Centre. This was a terrific community occasion and those responsible for organising it are to be complimented. On Sunday Dec 16th there was a very successful Cake Sale and Christmas Raffle in the Centre during which the proceeds of the Connolly/Murphy organised Tractor Run, which was part of the Welcome Home festival in the Summer, was presented to the North Monaghan Cancer Treatment Support group represented by Mary Jo Earley.
Members of the Truagh winning team attended and I am told that one of them asked Santa for the Mick Duffy cup next year
