Good Day Pirates Members and Friends

This is a big year for the Club as we are celebrating our 125th Birthday and we are looking forward to it.  May it be a great year for all of you too.


This is the first of many functions the Club will be hosting during the year and it promises to be a great occasion.  The format for the evening is a Cocktail Party Everyone who is associated, has been associated, would like to be associated and friends of the Club are all encouraged and welcome to attend this function. An invite will be sent out on Monday.  I would like to appeal to everyone to forward this to anyone who would be interested in joining us. There will be live music, gifts on arrival, a welcome drink and wonderful people to network with and many media personnel.

At this function we will let you know about all the fantastic events we have planned for the year and hopefully many of you can get involved in them


Social Hockey will get underway on Tuesday 15th January 7pm on the Pirates Astro.
