Moneystown ICA celebrates 60 years





In November 1954 a group of local ladies from Moneystown came together and opened Moneystown ICA Guild and 60 years later this ICA guild is as active, hard working and enthusiastic as it was in 1954.  On Sunday 23rd November, in The Royal Hotel in Glendalough the guild President Mrs Mary Carstairs welcomed the National President, Liz Wall, Federation President Maureen Quigley and friends from neighbouring guilds to celebrate with the members on the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of Moneystown ICA guild.  The guild is fortunate to have two of the founding members, May Kenna and Julia Byrne who are still very active members & the guild President spoke about all the great years the guild has had over those 60 years and remembered the deceased members also who played a big part in the guild from its foundation.  Over the years the guild has participated in lots of activities throughout the Federation, including taking part in the Annual Drama Festival, Cookery competitions as well as Arts and Crafts competitions and have been successful in lots of these competitions at Federation level.  Members also attend the adult Education College at An Grianan Co Louth regularly.  The guild has also fund raised for St Colman’s Hospital and the local Senior Citizens Christmas Party over the years.  The guild also enjoys trips to the theatre, meals out  and visiting places of interest throughout the county or neighbouring counties.  The guild meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month in Moneystown Hall at 8 p.m. and new members are always welcome.
