Ara-Go-On Festival – Galway Bay Hotel. Sept. 2019

Forty members of the Ballinasloe branch of ARA attended the Regional get together in the Galway Bay Hotel . We were the largest group in attendance and it was a great opportunity to meet some of the other members from all corners of Mayo, Roscommon and Galway.

The organised outing to Kylemore Abbey on day one was unfortunately spoiled by the constant downpour. However the weather didn’t dampen our spirits during the next few days as we enjoyed the lovely food, company, fun, films, Bingo, wine-tasting, Aquarobics, etc. and of course danced the night away to the nice music of our era.. The ladies, in particular, made a special effort for the Gala dinner and looked splendid in their best “Frocks”.

As we said good bye to our old and some new friends, we look forward to meeting up again at the next Ara-Go-on outing, P.G.

Many thanks to the Regional Chairperson, Deirdre, who worked so hard to make this such a successful and enjoyable event,

Chris O’Flynn (P.R.O) Sept 2019
