CITY CENTRE LOCATION AND KILDARE STREET AND UNIVERSITY CLUB
SATURDAY 24th FEBRUARY 2018
We are moving to Ireland on Saturday 24 February 2018 for a Dublin Bicentenary Dinner. Club Member John Aiken has put in place a celebration of our Irish heritage, and will provide some of the country’s renowned hospitality in a formal, yet good old-fashioned, Irish setting.
Arrangements centre on a Members’ Black/Cerise Tie Dinner on the Saturday evening in the Kildare Street and University Club, St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin. The Club President Jeremy (Rass) Randall will preside.
A reception for Members and invited guests, including a talk by the Club’s historian and Olympic commentator, Robert Treharne Jones, on the history of the three Cork Cups (1902-1904), will take place earlier in the day at a city centre location.
