Still affectionately known to the older generation as ‘The Choral’, Fermoy Musical Society (FMS) is 100 years in existence.

A lot has changed during that time, but, the philosophy of serving up a combination of music, song and dance to the public hasn’t.

The society has gone to elaborate lengths to mark the 10 decades milestone with people still talking about their gala ball held earlier this year. Celebrations are winding down a bit now, but not before the staging of a very interesting exhibition in Fermoy Library.

The exhibition of photographs, costumes and stage memorabilia was opened by poll topping councillor, William O’Leary from Rathcormac, last Saturday.
