A total of 76 members of the Women’s Club attended a dinner last Saturday night to honour Captain Frances McGettigan.

There was a festive party atmosphere with everyone in great cheer. Piotr and his team served a fantastic meal and Captain Frances enjoyed the evening surrounded by family and friends.

The presentation of the Christmas Hamper, kindly sponsored by Irish Life Sciences, took place just before the meal, Noreen O’Rourke presenting the first prize to Margaret Byrne on behalf of Irish Life Sciences.

The large attendance was testament to the hard work and diligence which Frances gave to her role as Lady Captain. Always approachable and always in good humour, Frances proved to be a very capable and popular Captain.
