Big Thanks to Everyone Who Helped Feed Hungry Minds

Big thanks to everyone who supported us so generously with our School Dinner fundraiser last week - all our friends, sponsors and guests. It was lovely to meet everyone who made it to Hartley's and thank you all for throwing yourselves so wholeheartedly into the "homework". Moreover, it wonderful to have so many people who couldn't come on the night, send us sponsorship anyway - it really is appreciated.

We were lucky to have been given a number of fabulous prizes for our raffle here - thank you so much.

To Gary Jermyn for his impromptu rattling off of a few verses of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock - top of the class - and for reciting his own thoughtful poem inspired by a visit to Uganda, Reading the SignsOur sincere thanks also to Deirdre Crookes, Holly & Indi Pratt Kelly for all their help.

A particular call-out, of course, to our great friend, Kieran FitzGerald who was MC, for speaking so eloquently and keeping it all moving along (some tables did need more encouragement than others), including delivering the line of the evening: "We're here for the Tuesday Trust on a Wednesday night with Mister Friday."

Go raibh míle maith agat!
