Old Ground Celebrations

Nancy and Michael OLoughlin of Rushaun, Kilnamona, County Clare recently celebrated fifty years of marriage with their family and friends at Kilnamona parish church and afterwards at the Old Ground Hotel, Ennis, County Clare.

Two of their grandchildren, Ciara OLoughlin with guitar and Kate Kelly with concertina, added their musical gifts to the celebrations at Kilnamona church.

Nancy’s connections to her own Kerins family at Ardrahan, County Galway ensured many hurling anecdotes/events were in plentiful supply on the 23rd June 2018. Michael represented his club Inagh/Kilnamona on the hurling field, in particular when his team won the County Clare hurling championship of 1965.

That tradition was continued when their daughter, Catherine represented county Clare camogie (hurling) teams during the early years of this millennium. Catherine was chosen on the Irish All Star camogie team for 2005.
