Kilbehenny Community Centre Notes

By Caroline Conroy



Dates for Diary:


Friday 22nd March – Social Dance with the famous Dermot Lyons. After the long weekend, its great to get back into the swing of things and Dermot is a much respected & talented musician who has graced the stage in Kilbehenny many nights, and never ever fails to create a super atmosphere.

Mary & Mattie welcome you all, to a night of fun and dancing.


Sunday 7th April - Yoga Walk for World Health Day – at 10am in Galtycastle wood.  For more information 087 1220116.


19th & 20th April  Drama (Good Friday and Easter Saturday)

The actors are preparing their hilarious acts, these are 2 nights you cant miss. (mark the diary)


Tuesday 26th March   FREE training -  ‘Bring Your Own Device’ Digital Skills Training.  @ 10.30 to 12.30pm. To book a place, please contact: Carrie O’Donoghue, Ballyhoura Development, Kilmallock Office on 063 20517 or email codonoghue@ballyhoura.org - Training is FREE and will be delivered in small groups of 8 to 10 people, over 5 x 2 hour sessions.


St. Patrick's Day brought the cold chilly weather to our country, but great to see a super display in Mitchelstown and hopefully next year there may even be a parade in Kilbehenny….watch this space.


Our village looks splendid on St. Patricks Day morning with beautiful hand crafted seats (by Tom O’Mahony)  in place at the top of the village and in the community centre..


We offer our sympathy to the Kelly family on the recent death of Philomena.

Phil was a much loved lady. She was involved in many things down through the years in Kilbehenny especially the ICA. RIP.

Also this week, we offer sympathy to the Carey family of Glenduff on the death of Michael who was laid to rest on 19th March and will be sadly missed by his family and friends. RIP.


Kilbehenny Community Centre is known far and wide for the service it provides to Funeral members who have lost a loved one. The centre caters for the get together after the funeral Mass and burial where food is provided.  


A new top class HSE approved Kitchen has been installed and this allows the ease and flow of catering for such an event.


The local members of the community come together on a voluntary basis to help prepare the hall and  serve the food.  The volunteers are only too pleased, as it gives them the opportunity to give something back to the community while showing support and empathy with the family and friends of the deceased.

There are times when we need that extra pair of hands to help out.

If you feel you may have some free time on your hands, we would be very grateful if you could contact us and we will add you to the list of Funeral Volunteers.

Please see numbers below.


Congratulations to Kilbehenny National School on their Small School of the Year Award at the Cumann Na mBunscoil awards in Sligo. Well done everybody – great achievement.


We have a packed schedule from Social dancing to Irish Dancing, Yoga Class for everybody that would like a good stretch – Zumba, Line Dancing, Cards,  Brownies, ICA, Knitting workshops, Cards, Special Friends, the list goes on… the place is bubbling with energy and fun.


If you would like to book any of these classes in 2019 or find out more about our rooms available to rent , let us know. Room hire is very reasonable and the atmosphere and layout is first class with beautifully decorated comfortable and affordable rooms to hire.
