President's Run (Sat 26th Sept 2015)
After breakfast in Carrick we had an excellent run to Bushmills for a tour of the Distillery, followed by Dinner at The Gracehill Golfclub.  Click Here to see some pictures of the event.

Funny how a run to the oldest licensed distillery in the world can be so popular.

Glengormley Culture Night.
Richard Gregory has ask me to thank all those that suported the event on Friday Night.  Although the rain came on just in time for the parade, up until then it was not a bad evening.

A suggestion for the organisers of the evening, It would have been better for the parade to have got underway an hour earlier when the was some daylight left in the day.
