The Suir ARA had a very busy week starting Friday 22nd June when 74 members supported the Hospice Night Dinner & Dance event that they enjoyed at the Tower Hotel.
On Sunday the 24th over 200 members attended Gowran Park Races organised by SER Committee ARI which was a wonderful event in glorious surroundinds and wonderful sunshine. A member of the group Anita Doyle won the best dressed lady. They enjoyed the races and the 4 course dinner. The group was voted the best dressed table and complimented by the judge for the great effort that they put into the event.
On Tuesday the 26th June over 80 members, 2 buses left left Waterford on a mystery trip, our summer outing & headed out the Cork Road, everyone ting to guess our destination. We arrived at Lismore where we were met by a guide who took us to the Lismore Hotel where we enjoyed scones, tea & coffee. After the break we were divided into two groups. It was a glorious afternoon. One group was taken on a tour of the wonderful gardens hile the other group went to the tower where they had an all over tour of the gardens. Afterwards we were taken to the heritage center and shown a video of the history of Lismore and its castle. and recharged our batteries. we also visited the gift shop. We left Lismore at 6.30pm and arrived at Harneys Dunhill for a traditional Irish night with traditional Irish food, a 3 course meal and then the fun started. The music was excellent, dancing & singing with the many talents of the group taking part. A hilarious comedy act by Miriam Lyons who brought the house down. Lovely duets by Rita Kelly & Joan Mullally(2 of our social committee) & other members of the group. Lots of spot prizes were given & a wonderful day & night was enjoyed by all. We arrived back in Waterford by midnight.
The group are looking forward to attending the south east regional garden party at Faithlegg House on July 4th. The Suir group are in its third year and has full membership and is a very active and vibrant group.

Not so GR8 G8With world attention on Fermanagh as the meeting place of the latest G8 Summit it is no wonder that locals are basking in the reflected spotlight.

We know about the exclusiveness of the hotels that the various leaders are going to be staying as well as some of their security detail. We know about the menus from which they will be choosing from. There is little about summit meeting that the …
