On Friday 4th of October, 188 Lansdowne Ladies gathered in the Clubhouse for the annual Ladies Lunch. Starting with a drinks reception kindly sponsored by Coman’s, the attendees gathered in the Zurich Room for a three course meal.

Deirdre McDermott was the effervescent MC on the day and got things started by introducing our 2019-20 President (and her brother!) Derry Shaw. Derry briefly welcomed the guests before being summarily dismissed by Deirdre πŸ™‚ Maggie Shaw then took to mic to outline the great work done by this year’s chosen charity, The Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People.

After lunch, guest speaker Fiona Looney entertained the guests, regaling them with tales from her career to date. After the meal, the raffle took place with some fantastic prizes being won.Β  In total, the raffle raised €16680 for the Capuchin Day Centre, a sum that will make a serious and practical difference to their daily work.
