December’s Pub Night was held at Trinity Hall, and as a nice surprise, two IAS friends visited the group. We were glad to have Mary Monaghan and John McShane visit and update us on their recent travels, as well as Al Currie visit the group. Thanks to Patti Winston, we have a few pictures to share. Please plan to attend the next fun night at Trinity on January 13.
During a recent survey conducted by Gifts Online, the IAS Dallas organization received a Shamrocker runner-up award as the best North American Irish organization. You may see this and a previous award at Trinity Hall Pub. To find out more about the Irish Store, click on the link.
