Autumn Stations
Anyone who would like to host the stations in their home this autumn is asked to contact Drum Parish Office at 6437125 to arrange a date. This is a lovely tradition which has been passed down through generations in our parish but would seem to be in decline in recent times. Perhaps you would consider hosting the station mass for your area to ensure the tradition continues for another generation, or to revive the tradition if it has declined in your area/townland.

McManus Gathering DVD
DVD of the recent McManus Gathering at Nure and Ardnanure now available at Drum Heritage Centre, weekdays 9.30am-2.30pm. Cost €10.

Card Game
Every Monday night at 9pm in Clann na nGael Clubhouse, Johnstown.
