In September of this year I was 65 years in St. Mary’s Band – no I’m not going to retire – and I have NEVER experienced a year where we had absolutely NO income whatsover, no St. Patrick’s Day Parades, Fund Raising Concerts or Collections while costs of over €4,000 still had to be met. All is not lost however and we are pinning our hopes on the sales of our CD “Musical Memories from Maynooth”, it costs only €10, which we hope will be bought as gifts for those who cannot get home to Maynooth for Christmas. Unfortunately we are not set up for online sales but we have 35 Band Members ready and willing to deliver the CD to your door, just phone Paddy (087 2537 906) or Kevin (087 2760 782) with your contact details and we will make sure it gets to you. If you already have the CD but would still like to make a donation our Bank IBAN details are IE25 ULSB 9860 9548 2080 09 giving your contact number so that we can acknowledge your contribution. Please share this message to all your contacts, we need your help.
