1.                   It was decided to keep the meal at the Skellig Hotel.  Margaret will ask the hotel to take bookings for the meal and also to put a vegetarian option on the menu.  Please have a rough idea of numbers expected to attend from each house at next meeting.


2.                 The Mass will be said by Father Jack and will be held in The Harbour Lodge at 4p.m. on 3rd October.  Each family to bring along sandwiches, apple pie and cakes etc. for after Mass reception.  Tea and coffee will be supplied by Harbour Lodge.  The Dingle Fife and Drum band to be requested to march from Flaherty’s to the Harbour Lodge before the Mass and all the Cottages people to march behind the band.


3.                 Tommy reported that he got a quote for a banner of €1,100.  This, it was decided was a bit expensive.  Brian is to obtain another quote.  The wording to be “1909 to 2009, The Cottages, An Chioll”.   One banner in the middle of the cottages opposite an ESB pole would be sufficient and easier to erect than one at each end of houses.  Joe suggested that painted signs would be a good idea and he will get quotes from sign painters.  A decision on which to go with will be made at next meeting.


4.                 Funds:  We understand that K.C.C has funds available for such events and application forms need to be completed – Brian will look into this.  Christie will get in touch with Udaras regarding funding and Maurice is happy to complete any forms necessary in Irish.  Margaret will ask Credit Union for small contribution. A list of sponsors will be put on website.


5.                 Each house has been requested to donate €100 towards the event.  This money to be given to Brenda as soon as possible.  An account will be opened in the Credit Union to hold funds.  Brian reported that €50 has already been received from Brian de Staic.


6.                 Next Meeting – Thursday, 4th June at 9 p.m.
