At the Festival Service President Mary announced that 2017 was going to be a very exciting year which would include a visit by the President of All Ireland Phyllis Grothier. Wouldn’t it be nice if she brought her mascot Stumpy along too!

The Mayor is hosting a celebration for us all too in The Guildhall to celebrate our 140 Birthday. Now that is something for us to look forward to.

Then there is the ‘The Big Sing’ celebrating 130 years of MU in Ireland and 13 decades of love and service. Taking place in The National Concert Hall in Dublin it promises to be an outstanding event.

President Mary asks everyone to nominate their 3 favourite hymns to be sung at this event sending them to Jacqui Armstrong as soon as possible.
