At Your Service – Sherkin North Shore Mike and Kathy O’Connor wish to let everyone in Sherkin, and all of their friends, know that Sherkin North Shore will be highlighted on the “At Your Service” TV programme on Sunday, February 1st, 2015 at 8:30pm on RTE One. Mike and Kathy haven’t seen the show yet, but the producer Maggi has ensured them that the island itself “steals the show!” Last summer was blessed with good weather, so it’s probable that there will be some great island footage from the film crew. As Sherkin North Shore was limited in the number that could be invited to participate in the launch with Francis and John Brennan, the Social Dancing Club from Sherkin was invited, and participated well in the set-dancing workshop led by Anne Keane from Millstreet. All enjoyed the feast prepared by Jean Paul. A great day was had by all, and Mike and Kathy once again want to thank all of their family and friends who helped so much to make the summer and the preparation for “At Your Service” so successful. htt://www.sherkinnorthshore.com/
