Halloween party 2015

Halloween Party: 

 The annual Halloween party will be held this Sunday November 1st from 6pm-7.30pm in Cúil na Sméar Hall.  With all the crazy and scary plans it promises to be a special night for all the family. There will be lots of spot-prizes for singing songs as Gaeilge and for dancing a witches reel, best homemade costume, best Celtic/Irish mythology costume and for adults best face-paint and best Celtic costume. There will also be spot-prizes for Trick or Treat and if the night is fine some of the activities will be outdoors.


Halloween comes from the feast of All Saints from its original title All Hallows Eve introduced to the Christian calendar in the 5th century. The older festival of Samhan from which we get Oíche Shamhna which marked the end of the harvest season, a time to store up for the winter, dates to pre Christian times. A couple of generations back it was called Snap-Apple night.  In those pre-television days families played games with apples and nuts at the fireside!  Our present festivities brings together many aspects of the past giving us a typically flamboyant commercial festival.  Bí linn don craic!
