We are holding our February meeting in the Cardinal O’Fiaich Library, Moy Road, Armagh on Friday, 16th February at 10.30am.
Our speaker this month is Billy Stewart, Crime Prevention Officer for ABCCouncil .
The Committee recently decided that EVERYONE attending the monthly meeting should contribute a £1 to the “pot” whether you have coffee & biscuits or not as it’s becoming more and more difficult balancing the books! Also, could everyone please sign the U3a Attendance book which (hopefully!) will be fairly close to the coffee dispensing table.
Just a reminder of the u3a Christmas Lunch on Friday 19th January in the Armagh City Hotel. Pre Lunch drinks at 12.15 with the meal at 1.00pm. The cost is £25 (subsidised). Margaret Oakes, Ann Cassidy and Tim Hanna will be in the foyer of the City Hotel between 10.30 and 12.00 next Friday 5th January to take payments and bookings if you haven’t already done so. You can still use the link below to reserve your place (or do it in person next Friday) and the menu is attached below.
Yes we are pleased to announce that our Xmas Quiz has returned after last year’s COVID postponement. So get your diaries out
This is to be held in the Cardinal O’Fiaich Library on December 15th
Doors open at 10.30 am and the quiz starts at 11.00 am.
Don’t worry, it’s a fun quiz with easy questions needing little detailed knowledge.
As before, the last round is a Hoots Mon! round where I try to raise your knowledge of all things Scottish with an extra special prize of a bottle of whisky for the team getting the best score on this round.
Again there are VERY expensive prizes for the winners and runners up
Xmas food treats, coffee and if we can manage even mulled wine at the start.
Teams of up to 5 but these can be arranged on the day so you don’t need to come mob handed. And it only costs £2/person
We are holding our November meeting in the Cardinal O’fiaich Library, Moy Road, Armagh on Friday 17th November at 10.30am.
Our speaker this month is Canon Jim Campbell and he will be giving an illustrated talk on the life and times of Sir John Lavery, Artist.
Coincidentally the National Gallery of Ireland is hosting a major exhibition entitled “Lavery On Location” which runs until mid-January 2024 and has apparently been described as “exceptional” and “dreamy, dreamy, dreamy.” So hopefully we’ll all be inspired to jump on the train to Dublin to see for ourselves!
U3a choir/ singing group restarting Monday, 9th October at 4:00 pm. We have got a wonderful accompanist in Rodney Spence and would really welcome some new members. Including men (don’t worry there is already a decent cohort) This is a singing for fun group so you don’t have to be a diva nor be able to read music and it goes without saying that it’s a very friendly group of people! If interested please text or phone Eleanor 07753616069 for further details.
