Table Quiz for Yellow Bog anniversary tonight

A reminder that a Table Quiz to raise funds for the 200th anniversary celebrations of St John's Church in Yellow Bog will be held in Fallons tonight, 26 March.

The usual costs per table, but the event kicks off at the earlier time of 7.45pm.

The anniversary will be celebrated with a Flowers Festival in June, on the weekend of 26-28 of the month. It will include a reception for sponsors and will conclude with a Service of Praise.

According to author and historian James Durney, the present church was erected in the early 1800s on a site which was possibly where a previous church had been built to replace the ancient one beside the round tower of Old Kilcullen.
