Canovee I.C.A.


Canovee I.C.A.

Canovee I.C.A Guild was founded on 17/4/1964. Maureen Lane, Aherla, and Mis K. Gleeson, Area organiser, were the organisers.
Mis Eileen Dunn was the first President. Membership fee was 5/- in "old", "old" money.

The guilds activities provided a great social outlet for its members. Demonstrations and talks have been wide ranging, from crafts to gardening, cookery to art. The guild participated in Public Speaking, set dancing, make and model, Table quizzes and painting classes. Our ballad Group had a County win, and our members received Briannrai Awards for their crafts. We have named a charity each year, which we support. This year it is the turn of " The Irish Lifeboats". Many of our members have been to the I.C.A College " An Guanan". We have an annual outing and a Christmas Party.

Our present membership is low, but as the I.C.A has allot to offer, we are inviting new members to join us. We meet in Canovee Hall on the first Thursday of each month.
