Christmas Party Update

Just a quick update on the TPS Christmas Party: The original date for the party was for Saturday, December 18 – but unfortunately that date was heavily booked and we were unable to get enough places.  So we have booked Friday, December 17 – still at Bewley’s Hotel and still for the very reasonable price of €28! Unfortunately, Elvis has left the building and will not be performing that evening but instead we will be treated to the musical stylings of a Neil Diamond tribute act! We will be taking payments for the Christmas party each Tuesday at the TPS meetings in the Rua Red – so don’t forget to book your place for a fun night!
