Letter from the President

Happy New Year!

Following the success of the annual Children’s Christmas Party and the Roast Lunch – the first time for such an event – in December, the Irish Club of Luxembourg (ICL) is now looking ahead to the spring for our next activities.

 

Save the Dates

In March, we will have a film outing to the Cinémathèque for St Patrick’s – on both Thursday 15 & Sunday 18 March.

On Sunday 22 April, we will be organising our annual Sponsored Walk.

And on Friday 27 & Saturday 28 April we will be collaborating with Comhaltas to organise a unique event at the Centre Culturel Altrimenti.

In all cases, full details will be announced well in advance. Watch this space!

We will also be co-ordinating Team Ireland to participate in the annual Relais Pour la Vie 24-hour event to show solidarity with cancer sufferers and survivors, and to raise money for cancer research. The event is being held at d’Coque in Kirchberg from around 7pm on Saturday 24 March for 24 hours, with each of the 375 teams having one person on the track at all times.

 

By the way, one member of the Irish community in Luxembourg is raising funds for the Temple Street Children’s Hospital in Dublin – to help support Sarah Kennedy, see http://bit.ly/2mf7Esq  for details.

MEMBERSHIP

To enjoy the benefits of the ICL, this is also a reminder for those who may have forgotten to pay your membership – both established and new members. The fees are not expensive and members do receive benefits, primarily in the way of reduced rates to attend events, and also invitations to member-only events.

The membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March annually, so this year’s subscription will include events (yes, in the plural) that we are organising around St Patrick’s, as well as the Relais Pour La Vie 24-hour charity fun-run/jog/walk in late March.

Membership fees are €15 (single), €30 (family) and €10 (student), payable to IBAN LU08 0030 2513 4451 0000 (BGLLLULL). Please mention “Membership” and your name(s) in the Communication.

LOGO

We have also updated our club logo – we hope you like it!

 

Mise le meas,

 

Geoff Thompson, President of the Irish Club of Luxembourg.
