There was a Scottish flavour to Connor Mothers’ Union’s Mid Belfast Area Social held in St George’s Parish Church on May 10, St Comgall’s Day.
All the branches in the area were represented. During the evening, Liz Waring gave a short history of St Comgall, and the Belfast Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society performed demonstration dances and invited members of the audience to take part.
Daphne Murphy recited poems and readings by Jenny Joseph, Hilaire Belloc, Ogden Nash and Percy French.
There was a musical treat from Janine Burnside who sang ‘Let there be peace on Earth’, We cannot measure how we heal,’ The Lord’s my Shepherd’ to the tune of ‘The Rowan Tree,’ and ‘Danny Boy’ before finishing with An Irish Blessing.
Before the evening ended the ladies enjoyed a lovely supper served by the members of St George’s branch.
