On 6th January 22 members of Kilkenny RTA gathered in Butler House to mark and celebrate Nollaig na mBan. Marian, our secretary, welcomed all the guests and we were treated to a beautiful spread of savoury and sweet delicacies. They were more than welcome and after the Christmas you’d think nobody would be able to handle such treats but the plates were empty by the end of the afternoon.

It was a very pleasant afternoon of chat, good company and sharing of New Year and holiday plans. Not a word about school!! Everyone was in agreement that Marian, as usual, did a great job of organising another very successful event. Many thanks to the staff of Butler House for a very warm reception and the beautiful food.

This was the first activity of 2018 and hopefully it will be just one of many enjoyable activities in the New Year. Following are some snaps from the afternoon.
