Title: Memories of Rahan, a look back on life, in a Co. Offaly Parish
Author Aidan Grennan is delighted to announce that he is launching his first book in the Rahan Community Hall on Friday, 16th of November at 8.30 PM. The community hall is 10km from Tullamore in Co. Offaly. All are welcome to attend and enjoy the evening.
Aidan has lived all his life in Rahan. Keen on writing, he feels that the time is right to record some memories from his native parish.
We read of his schooldays, his time as an altar boy, going to the Youth Club and the joy of St. Carthage's Day. Aidan tells us of a time when the parish had nine shops, and he takes us back to a June day in 1976, when 7,000 people arrived in Rahan.
His many nights spent at the concerts, plays, meetings and bingo in Rahan Hall are recalled, and we hear of a few parish heroes.
All in all, this book is a most interesting read
