Nollaig na mBan lunch for the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland

The club celebrated Nollaig na mBan on January 6th 2019 at the K Club with a fundraising lunch in aid of  the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland with over 85 club members and friends in attendance.

Members and friends had a enjoyable lunch followed by entertainment from poet and writer May Leonard who weaved stories about Christmas in Limerick, train trips to the coast and even Arthur Guinness. She was presented with a framed poem by poet Brendan Kennelly as a thank you from the club.

The event was MC’d by club member Aisling Nolan, and grace was delivered by our first club president Kay Brophy. President Marion Kennelly detailed the history of Nollaig na mBan and about her chosen charity.

President Marion and all club members wish to thank all those who attended, those who sponsored prizes and the event and the K Club for helping make the event so successful.
