We celebrated our 25th Anniversary on the 12th June 2013 with a delicious lunch in the Killiney Golf Club. The sunny view through the windows out onto the greens was a reflection of the smiles on the faces of the 130 elegantly attired guests.

Tables of eights and tens were beautifully laid out with floral centrepieces prepared by a member from her own garden. Four of the founder members Dr. Mary Toomey, Gertie Eggers, Sally McGuinness and Carmel Fitzgerald were present and joined at their table by special guests Jane Powers and Breda Roseingrave

A specially designed Souvenir Programme offered a three course meal with wine with a starter of Smoked Salmon Rolls stuffed with cream cheese with lime, black pepper and asparagus. A choice of Panfried Chicken Supreme or Fresh Fish in season, with new season vegetables and Irish potatoes were offered for the main course, followed by Pavlova with berries, cream and raspberry coulis. Tea and coffee were then served along with a Celebration Cake.

A short speech commemorating the establishment of the club was made by the Chairperson, who then invited guests to raise their glasses with a toast – To the Founders!

Guests were presented with a handcrafted bookmark designed to mark the occasion.
