Lady Captain’s Weekend:
Fortune favours the brave; one would have to give that attribute to Lady Captain Nell Suipéil and her team as they planned for Lady Captain’s weekend during uncertain times. All went to plan and on Thursday evening a table of beautiful prizes was unveiled. Lady Captain Nell commendably sourced her prizes from local artists which included some beautiful pieces from Bridget Shelley, Vivian O’Malley and Ardmore Pottery.
On Friday the weather was very favourable, and Saturday’s rain was softened by welcome refreshments on the 9th.
A huge thank you to Marie and Bridget whose flowers graced the dining and entrance area; and also to Eunice Power who provided a beautiful buffet at the prize giving, on Saturday evening the grand finale of an enjoyable and successful weekend.
