Annual Christmas Dinner Dance
A great crowd of people gathered together for a night of glamour, dinner and dancing on Saturday 25th November at Fitzgerald’s Woodlands House Hotel in Adare to start off the Christmas season. The food was excellent as usual and after a short break our DJ started the disco, giving everyone a chance to get up and dance. A wonderful evening was enjoyed by all who attended and it was a superb reunion event.

Pre-Christmas Overnight Trip
Our numbers for our Pre Christmas Overnight Trip to Dublin held on 9th & 10th December were small but we joined with a large group from Cork Diocese. After a number of hours shopping at Dundrum Shopping Centre the group headed for Clontarf for CIYD Christmas Worship Service & Party with Disco. It was a very well attended event and enjoyed by everyone. Steve Grasham C.I.Y.D was the preacher at the service. The Cork, Limerick and Clontarf group stayed overnight at the parish centre in Clontarf and after a cooked breakfast joined the parishioners for their Sunday service. After Sunday service it was time head home in the snow!
Mega Christmas Day Trip
A very large group ( 67 in total ) of young people headed to Dublin on Thursday 28th December for an action packed splendid day that included I-SKATE on Ice @ R.D.S., Funderland @ R.D.S., Jumpzone Indoor Trampoline Park @ Stillorgan Industrial Park, Fast Food @ Mc Donald’s Kylemore, Karting @ Kylemore Karting. It was really great to have everyone on the trip with many new faces and the of course the UDYC regulars and we hope to see everyone again real soon.
