Branch Trip to Portumna - May 15th 2024

Our members enjoyed a fabulous day trip to Portumna in May.  As usual the trip was well researched and organised by our extremely hard working chair, Joan Eason. We had guided tours of Portumna Castle and gardens and also the workhouse.  It was an interesting insight to both sides of life in past times, the priveleged and the poor.  The beautiful weather also played a part.  Great coffee and lunch breaks kept our energy levels up and gave us time to chat and catch up.

February Branch Meeting Report

Our meeting on Lá Fhéile Bríde was held in the Southcourt Hotel. A busy meeting with updates on planning for hosting the AGM in May and two very different guest speakers

Ger O'Donoghue gave us a very informative talk on pensions and entitlements. Tom Twomey gave an illustrated talk on a local but relatively unknown event from 1920, a raid on an IRA-organised fundraising dance held in Caherguillamore House, Co Limerick.  Tom has a podcast on the topic on Limerick City Community Radio. (The History Show.)

Future plans include a trip to Dublin and Epic Museum in March. A trip abroad is currently being investigated for the autumn.
