In fond remembrance

On 20th October, we acknowledged John Nagle’s first anniversary and reminisced with very fond memories. Our community is richer for having had such a gentleman to call our friend and neighbour. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam. 💛

A warm bienvenido

A deliciously light and refreshing melon cocktail awaited our guests from Cashel Travel, who passed by Kilshanny House on a sunny summer’s day with a group of food lovers from Catalonia. Followed by our Burren béilíní, light bite tastes of the Wild Atlantic Way and a glass of Sundowners from the local Western Herd Brewing Company, our satisfied group of travellers continued on their tour of County Clare with our best wishes for a buen viaje.

The Champ

Aidan was absolutely delighted that his brown bread was chosen as the overall winner by the judges at the Ballyvaughan Farmer’s Market last month. Thanks to Finola for delivering the winning cup to Aidan, what a lovely surprise!

Up Clare!

Sunday, July 2nd, the banner flew high in Kilshanny! Ann Kirrane lifted the rafters and hearts with Clare my Heart my Home. After Clare’s setback in the hurling, Kilshanny House was packed from early evening full of emotion and anticipation. “And down from Bell Harbour Chris Droney he came”, following his visit to his first great grandchild, Hanora — the new generation, while his daughter, Ann sang his song Peaceful Corcomore. Thanks to Noirin Lynch Music and her beautiful guest, Ann and to all of you for sharing such an emotive evening for County Clare.
