Mince Pies Night, 14.12.2009

Nearly 60 members attended this annual social evening in Monkstown. Before stuffing ourselves with a great selection of pies (both home-baked and shop pies), Tony White showed us two films from his Anto Bianco studios:
The first was a record of a CHA walk led by Paddy Duggan last spring during which he planted a wooden cross in the Corribrack mountain at the site of a fatal crash by a small plane enroute from Gloucester to Kildare in 2008, when all four on board died.
The second film retated to a walking holiday in the Dolomites by a group of CHA members in 2008.
At the end of the evening, surplus pies were collected by Cherry, to be passed on to the Simon Community.
