“I am delighted that the Mayoral Charity Ball 2013 will take place in Galway’s landmark Ardilaun hotel which has served our city so well for over 50 years, and to be maintaining the tradition of supporting many worthy local charities as the Mayoral Ball has done for so many years,” said Mayor of Galway Terry O’Flaherty.
“It has been a great honour for me to serve as mayor of the city for a second time and hopefully a substantial sum of money can be raised for these charities which are doing Trojan work from reduced resources in these difficult times. Throughout the year I have been both amazed and humbled by the work being done throughout the city by the many charitable and voluntary organisations.”
