RAM Patricks Day

Make hay while the sun shines, as all good farmers would say, and that’s exactly what the RAMS in Rhythm did over the long St Patrick’s Day Festival. The RAMS participated in the 4 District Rathcoole parade, by entertaining the spectators at the Court House in Rathcoole village, before the commencement of the parade. Not only did the spectators enjoy the music and songs, we even had some dancing in the street. Much to the delight of the audience, the RAMS distributed sprays of shamrocks, which were a real treat to our newly arrived visitors to Rathcoole, the Ukraine Community.

RAMS Patricks Day

Not to sit on their laurels, the RAMS in Rhythm supported the 4 District responders, (who too were participants in the parade) by fundraising for the purchase of their new life saving equipment, at Avoca Rathcoole. The RAMS wish to thank the Management of Avoca, for facilitating us with a great venue, and to all their patrons who were so generous and giving. Another wonderful day, as a social inclusion, sun shining, and great entertainment.

The RAMS are so pleased to be out and active again, after such a long lockdown, and supporting many good causes. They performed their new number “Oh What a Wonderful World” and “Some Where over the Rainbow”.

The RAMS are looking forward to singing at the “Darkness into Light”, at Corkagh Park on the 7th May supporting Pieta House. They are also looking forward to visiting the grounds of the local nursing homes and entertain the residents, with a few happy songs, and lift their spirits.
