Latest News & Announcements 2017

LAOIS ARCH CLUB

Laois Arch Club is a very vibrant active club which caters for between 70-80 members at our monthly disco in The Heritage Hotel Portlaoise. Every year we bring a group of approximately 40 of our members for a weekend away and we also bring some of our members on a day trip.

This year our day trip was to Dublin Zoo. The excitement was catching as we headed off in June and we all had a wonderful day exploring all the different areas and seeing all the animals in the zoo.

The high light of the day was definitely when we went to have lunch in the restaurant and some of our members spotted Gerry Creighton, Operations Manager, who appears on The Zoo TV Series on RTE. They couldn’t believe when he joined our table and chatted to us all about his work.....

 

This is Gerry with Melissa, his No 1 Fan!        

The rest of the group quickly stepped in to have their photo with Gerry too.
