Before the reception, Holy Mass was celebrated at the Boat Club by Father Joe Kennedy from Mount Argus for the deceased members of the organising committee – Dolores Barnes, Patrick McLaughlin (former Commissioner) Donal Gahan, George Hutchinson, John O’Halloran and Jim O’Brien This years Cheese & Wine Party was another big success, thanks to all the voluntary work done by the committee as well as the entertainment organised by Joe Harte.
