€260 Raised for Lions Club

The Lions Club expressed their gratitude to Dungarvan Hillwalking Club when they were presented with €260 at the Mulled Wine and Mince Pie Walk in Ardmore on December 22nd. As members munched their mince pies and slugged mulled wine and tea, they generously dipped into their purses and dropped money into a collection bucket. The proceeds were then handed over to a representative of the Lions Club.

Christmas Party a Roaring Success

50 members of Dungarvan Hillwalking Club donned their glad rags and rocked the night away at their Christmas party in Causeway Tennis Club. The Chairman and the party organisers would like to thank the following:
The “Ladies Committee” for their sterling work in decorating the room and ensuring it was cleaned afterwards.
Robbie’s Catering for scrumptious grub.
David for his floor filling tunes and Claire Grace for putting us onto him.
