Míle buíochas to out-going officers, Martin Hoban and Fidelma Farrell for their wonderful service. We appreciate all the time and effort you have put in on our behalf.
DELEGATES TO ANNUAL CONVENTION:
Carmel Gleeson, Michael Minogue, Mary Kennedy and Geraldine McHugh will attend Convention in Croke Park on 28th March. Our branch nomination for President is Mary McCarthy and for Vice President is Charlotte May.
TRIPS AND OUTINGS:
After 8 years of organising tours and trips for us, Rena McAllen is resigning as chief organizer – you’ll be sadly missed, Rena, but I’m sure you will share your expertise with next organizer. Many branches join together to make up numbers for outings and Mary McCarthy, our new President, is assured that members from ARTI Laois Branch would be happy to join with us if numbers were required. Some of the small branches joined together in September 2022 for a few days in Westport – a great time was had by the 80 attendants and there were lots of activities over the few days. This year an Autumn break (8th – 11th October) to Kilkenny is planned. it is open to members from all branches. Please see www.rtaireland.ie for booking details.
