GARDAÍ in Shannon continue to spread the festive joy by hosting their annual senior citizens Christmas party.

Held at The Goalpost Bar on the grounds of Wolfe Tones GAA Club, the Christmas gathering had a sprinkling of music and a strong sense of community spirit.

Mikey Wall provided the music for the afternoon. Students from St Conaires and St Tolas National Schools also gave musical performances, their tunes added an extra layer of joy to proceedings.

Dedicated volunteers from Intel, AIB and Ei Electronics generously gave their time to ensure the smooth running of event. Food and the venue was given with sincere warmth by The Goalpost Bar plus Tea and Tones.

A surprise visit from Santa Claus brought laughter and smiles to the venue.
