Book Club

The late 2017 book club schedule has proved very interesting.  In October, Phil Faulkner presented his book, “Chicago Freight Tunnels”.  November’s book was “The Life and Times of Eamon De Valera”, who was the first President of Ireland presented by Rita Dillard.

Our December meeting will be presentations by various people who will show pictures or talk about visits to Ireland, as well as discussion about how Ireland has changed over the years.

Thank you Marius for providing us a place to meet, and your great staff who also doubles as photographer.

Plano International Festival Was a Huge Success

The Irish-American Society was well represented and had so many volunteers that we want to thank. Our special thanks are to the organizers of this festival. Jim Jones and Stanford Oliver put so much effort into making this day a very special occasion. They spent many weeks and months doing all of the hard work that it takes to put on an event such as this.  Please thank Jim and Stan next time you see them, which I hope is going to be at the Halloween Party,  October 28th, a Saturday, 6:30 pm at the Midway Point in Addison. Start planning your costume and pumpkin, as we will have a contest for both. The invitation will be coming out on Monday. Boo…….Slainte’ from Kat
