Dún Laoghaire Lions Club Charter Night
Last night I put on my tuxedo and Roma and I went to the Dún Laoghaire Lions Club Charter Night dinner in the Kingston Hotel. Roma attended with her Killiney Lions Club colleagues and we had a table almost to ourselves. Local Councillor Larry Lohan was at our table and the was plenty of banter about politics and elections. Minister Mary Hanafin was also at the dinner (looking great) though we didn't get to speak to her.
There was the usual amount of speeches after dinner - very boring as I had no clue who all the people were that they were talking about and giving awards to. There was also a raffle, with a rugby jersey signed by the Ireland Grand Slam winning team, as the top prize. Between us Roma and I bought €40 worth of tickets (all part of fund raising), but had no luck with any prizes. We didn't stay too late and were home before 1.30am.
