Comboni Missionaries Reunion
We received this from im Kirby, ex-seminarian at Mirfield and who works in the travel industry.
“I have just recently returned from Florida and was chatting with Liam Gribben. He will be in Ireland at his usual work conference from Wednesday the 20th May staying in Malahide which is close to Dublin Airport on the coast. He is staying at the Grand Hotel but would love to see if we can get a group together to go over and see him weekend of the 22nd May.
“The weekend is fixed so if you can come I hope you will and if so let me know as soon as possible and I will make arrangements for accommodation at good rates. You can all get easy flights into Dublin . We will make arrangements for people to be met at the airport, so don’t worry about transfers.
“I need to get a rate on hotels. The area in Malahide is beautiful and if we aim to arrive Friday we propose staying until Sunday. Hope as many of you as possible can come and please pass this on to others not listed above as these are the only e-mail addresses I have.
“Martin (Murphy), bring your guitar and I’ll do song books. Danny (Curren) bring the banjo!
“So guys you can either make it or not make it, the date is fixed and the venue. Don’t let yet another year go by again without a reunion and do ask others.
“Let me know as soon as possible if you can make it and so far Liam,Frank Barnes and myself are confirmed”.
Bank Holiday Weekend
It seems that it is a UK bank holiday weekend. Jim is sorting out the hotel and seeing who will give us the best rates.
A further email from Jim states:-
“Ask people to book the Friday and return either the Sun or Mon. Eamon told me tonight that flights from Glasgow are really cheap. Anyway Eamon is doing a wider e-mail tomorrow and hopefully we’ll get a few more to tag on. I will sort out the accommodation, you can let them know and I’ll keep price as best as possible.”
