We had 2 fabulous parties on Sunday 9th December 2018 for our members.
The Children’s party was in the Conyngham Arms Hotel Slane Co Meath and the Teenagers and Adults Party was in The Trim Castle Hotel Co Meath. A big Thank you to both venues as they both pulled out all the stops so that we all had a good time.
There was a great atmosphere and everybody had a good time. Santa brought presents to our younger members and everybody was very happy with their presents. There was a Selfie Mirror at the Teen Adult Party for all our Selfie needs.
A big Thank You to our organisers Nicola Nevin (Children’s), Liz Murray (Teens & Adults) and their teams and all the volunteers on the day who did a fabulous job of organising the parties.
