The Lord’s Taverners Ireland has run a number of highly successful fundraising and social events since its inception.
We believe that it’s important that we provide our members with an opportunity to take part in enjoyable sporting and social occasions which also support the charitable and developmental work of the Taverners in Ireland.
We have already held a number of these events including a golf outing, visits to the dogs, a night at Leopardstown and surprisingly even a cricket match!
Five of the most enjoyable and successful events held were a lunch to acknowledge the work of Alan Lewis and Adi Birrell on behalf of Irish cricket and a dinner to mark the 40th anniversary of Ireland’s win over the West Indies in Sion Mills at which we also made special presentations to Kyle McCallan and Roy Torrens for their fantastic contribution to Irish cricket. A tribute lunch for Des Cashell and Cecil Geelan in recognition of outstanding contribution to the community was held in the St Stephens Green Hibernian Club in 2010 and in 2011 we held a lunch to honour Ollie Campbell and Fergus Slattery at The Westbury Hotel, Dublin. In May of this year we held a very successful lunch to pay tribute to two more sportsmen, Liam Brady and John Giles!
The highlight of each Lord’s Taverners calendar year has of course been the annual Christmas Lunch when we have had the great pleasure of presenting six very worthwhile charities with specially adapted minibuses.
With your support we hope to be in a position to do this again at this years Christmas lunch taking place in the Four Seasons on Thursday 20th December 2012.
