Cáirde Mhaigheo is this year once again hosting a Christmas lunch with the Mayo Senior football panel and management. This year’s event will take place at the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin on Friday, 23rd November.
I was at last year’s inaugural lunch myself and it proved to be a very enjoyable occasion, as well as a chance to mix and mingle with like-minded Mayo GAA nuts. Every table in the Great Room at the Shelbourne was occupied for the event last December and demand is sure to be equally strong for this year’s event.
It’ll be the same format as last year, with a player or management team member at each table. Lunch will be followed by a Q&A session hosted by the day’s MC, Mike Finnerty, and the day will also feature an auction, where, if last year’s one is anything to go by, the items to go under the hammer will be keenly fought over.
This is a major Mayo GAA fundraising event and tables (of ten) are available at it for €2,500 each. Half tables are also available, priced at €1,250, as are individual slots at €250 each. Those interested in booking full or half tables should contact firstname.lastname@example.org while anyone who wants to book an individual place at the event should contact email@example.com.
Throw-in time at the Shelbourne for the event is midday on 23rd November. What time the final whistle sounds later on that day is, though, entirely up to yourself on what promises to be a occasion to look forward to.
