A most enyoyable time was had by the small group from the Club who visited Killyleagh Castle on the 25 October for a tour with the present owner Gawn Rowan Hamilton (pictured 2nd right) who’s family have lived there for over 400 years.
On Friday 07 September 7 intrepid members and partners - PP Brian & Rosie Clements, PP Maurice & Hilary Brooks, Eric & June Rainey and Billy McCoubrey - enjoyed the fantastic experience scenery of the "most dramatic walk in Europe".
After a lovely lunch at the centre they followed the path which hugs the cliff face and offers breathtaking views of the rugged coast as it crosses the iconic tubular and wobbly suspension bridges passing through caves and tunnels and using steps to reach different heights above the swirling sea.
President Mark, Immediate Past President Rosemary Simpson, Hon. Secretary Lorna Magill, Teddy Elliott, Hilary Gault and Past President Maurice and Hilary Brooks - had a most enjoyable evening at the Rowel Friers Concert in Bangor Elim Church Thursday 06 September. Aged only 17 Rowel (pictured with the group) is a most accomplished pianist and well worth hearing and played a wide range of music from Chopin to Boogie Woogie.
President Rosemary concluded her year at her President’s Dinner held 25 June at the Royal Belfast Golf Club. Always a highlight of the Club's year and this year's relaxed and convivial evening was again greatly enjoyed by the 60 members and guests.
Led by Past President Maurice & Hilly, Past Presidents Brian & Rosie Clements, Craig & Orla McClelland, Campbell & Gaile Morton and John & Hester O’Carroll left Dublin for Lyon airport Wednesday 06 June and that is when their 5 day wonderful adventure began!
