Listen to St Mary’s:

A big “Thank You” to the Mayor Robert Adair for pressing the big button to light up our tree.

And, of course, to Santa for dropping by…at this busy
time of year.

Sad News

The Portaferry Gala Committee would like to offer their sincere condolences to their esteemed member Jackie Whiteside on the sudden death of her husband Billy Whiteside.

Many will remember Billy, from their time as owners of McNamara’s Bar, which hosted not only our Gala Meetings, but also a number of events over the years.

Our thoughts are with the family at this time.
