    Cyril McLoughlin kindly offered to lead our walk yesterday.  We met at Gleeson’s Spar shop in Portroe, the hardy souls were Marese Dolan Hutchinson, Louise Roden, Miriam Mulcahy, Frank Guy, David and Mary Williams and myself.  It was lovely to meet David and Mary who joined the club last year; they live in Dublin and have a daughter living in Cloughjordan who runs a circus school.  They own a Drascombe Lugger.

    We parked at the Graves of the Leinster Men and our two hour walk in torrential rain and strong winds took us to the top of Tountina, needless to say there was no view!  Cyril is a keen experienced walker who knows the area well which was especially important considering the weather; he thoughtfully brought extra walking sticks that we needed to keep ourselves upright! However we all really enjoyed the walk and chat and a restorative bowl of chowder was much appreciated in Larkins where we met Deirdre O’Driscoll, Reggie and Hjordis.

    Next year we might go along the Nenagh River and admire James and Charlotte’s daffodils, spring is a good time of year for the walk.

    Cyril is very happy to show us other walks in the area so if there are any members interested we could organise them during the coming months, please get in touch with me.

    On Friday 9th December the Annual Christmas Lunch was held upstairs in the club.  It was a lovely day and we appreciated the great view, and the stove burning in the background made it nice and warm.
    Thirty of us enjoyed a tasty lunch of lovely fish canapés, followed by soup, a selection of bread and cheeses and a delicious baked ham followed by excellent mince pies, truffles and mandarins.  Tasty morsels to start the festive season.
    Thank you to everyone who came along and to those people who kindly supplied food for the meal.  Lastly many thanks to my hard working social sub committee who made it such a success.
    Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and looking forward to seeing you all in the new year.
    Declan Mulcahy is leading the walk on New Year's Day and the next coffee morning will be on Friday 13th January.

    The Oppies have had a great week of racing and fun, all 212 of them.

    The weather cooperated and all 10 main fleet races were completed, often in "champagne" sailing conditions, with both fleets, under Race Officers Liam Maloney and John Leech getting a full programme of activities.

    We wish all our visitors a safe journey home, and look forward to seeing you all again. For our volunteers a big thank you, it could not have been done without you.
