The Irish Gathering was celebrated as usual on the first Saturday in September in Peter O’Hara’s house , in Howth.
Peter and Marjorie were the perfect hosts providing a splendid array of food and drink and as expected from an Irish ‘do’, the craic was excellent. Many thanks to them for their efforts.
Biff Way organised the raffle raising over €500 euro for the Association. He also gave a memorable rendering of “Saucepan’s” tale -(don’t ask, you had to be there to understand)
In his speech as Chairman of the Association, Mike Coleman paid tribute to John Berry and Sandy Stokes for organising the Gathering for the past 15 years. A special mention was made of Tom Devoy RIP who died last July. Those attending were: Peter Biddulph, Enid and Corrie Pristoruis, Chris Russell, Gillian Conway, Ann Mills, Peter & Marjorie O’Hara, Robin Harvey, Carol Harvey, Stan Mills, Helen Tate, Tom Meekin, Biff Way, Chris Tate, Cath Hall, Corrine and Joan Meekin.
The 2020 Gathering will take place on first Saturday in September – please note the date in your diary.
