On Friday 30th September the annual Honorary Life Members’ Lunch was held in the Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan. Despite the dreadful weather, many of the members had travelled quite a distance to be there.

Hockey Ireland President, Ann Rosa welcomed everyone and before the meal was served, she asked for a minute’s silence to be observed, to remember members of the hockey family who had passed away in recent months. Dixon Rose sadly was one and as an Honorary Life Member, he had been at the Honorary Life Members’ lunch in September 2021.

The occasion gave everyone the opportunity to meet the Interim CEO Nick McElwee and Hockey Ireland Vice President John Dennis expressed our gratitude and thanks for the superb work that he has done during his term in office. Pamela Bastable was also thanked for her help in organising the event. The photographs taken by professional photographer Alwyn Robinson, capture the occasion.
