Hi there Pirates Friends and Members

Wow November is over and our 125th Birthday is sadly coming to an end.  We have one more bash planned which is on Friday 6th December in the PIGEON HOUSE.  I hope many of you are able to join us.

Then of course the absolute final event of the Pirates Calendar is the annual HAT RACE which will take place on Monday 16th December (Public Holiday)

The flyer with all the details are below.  I would like to challenge all Sections of Pirates to see which section (besides Road Running of course as they have to work) will have the most entries into this fun race.  All proceeds of this race go to Charity so join in the fun.

Please do not forget to visit the following website and order your photo’s from the 125 Gala Dinner and the Rugby Annual Dinner.

Some Irish humour especially after their close game last weekend L

Due to a water shortage in Ireland , Dublin swimming baths have announced  they are closing lanes 7 and 8….

After 100 years lying on the sea bed, Irish divers were amazed to find that  the Titanics swimming pool was still full!
