Michael Curtin

Comiserations to Pat Lonergan who unfortunately got injured the Wednesday prior to the half, but still travelled to support.

Wednesday Runs

Now that the concerts are over for another year, we’ll be back again at the Car Park from Wednesday night. We still have a Wednesday run outside of the park somewhere on the south side coming up, more details to follow.

DFR social calendar

A message from our busy socialite Andy:

Your social secretary has been hard at work over the last few days, after a successful Pride run we deserve a little socialising.

Summer BBQ

The Hilton hotel on Charlemont Place is booked for the Saturday 31 August for our annual BBQ, there’s a great outdoor area and we have part of the bar just in case the sun doesn’t shine.  It’s right beside the Luas Charlemont stop.

Cost is only E20 per person (thanks to a small subsidy from DFR!) and advance booking is required as capacity is restricted.

If you’re paying by online bank transfer, please be sure to note your name and event and adivse our Treasurer Davey.

Gaze Film Festival

The film festival is on in early August, once the program is out I will do some in depth research and pick something suitably artistic to go see, and a few drinks afterwards. I’ll probably skip the artistic film and watch something over 18’s myself 🙂

London Pride Run

London Frontrunners Pride run is on Saturday August 17th this year, if you’re interested in going let me know, it would be great if we could organise a few runners to represent the club. Details on their website;

Christmas Party

I know it’s a long way off but we’re provisionally looking at Saturday December 14 for our Christmas do, venue to be confirmed, put the date in your diaries.
