AN evening of entertainment will be held at Lismore Comprehensive next week as part of the school’s 40th anniversary celebrations.
The event will take place on Thursday, November 29 in the main hall, starting at 7.30pm.
It will consist of music, song, comedy, storytelling and magic, and will feature some of Lismore’s best talent from down the years.
Musical acts will include past pupils Mons Wheeler, Jonathan McGuinness and Richard Lappin, the O’Hara sisters, teacher Shane McCormac and Lismore’s school choir.
Local comedian Michael Bartlett, another former pupil, will be keeping the laughs coming, teacher Art O’Neill will engage in a little bit of story telling, and current pupil and up-and-coming magician Colm Fitzpatrick will conjure up a spectacular show.
There will also be an archival photograph display of Lismore back through the years.
Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
“We are looking forward to a great evening’s entertainment, and also renewing acquaintances and the rekindling of good memories,” said principal Mr Joe Corrigan.
He added that any friend of Lismore, past or present, irrespective of age, is welcome to attend.
