GROW Southern Region Annual Dinner

The GROW Southern Region met on Friday night, January 27th, for their annual dinner, the first social event of 2017.

The dinner took place in the lovely surroundings of the Elm Tree Restaurant, Glounthane, with all enjoying a superb four-course meal while also enjoying the opportunity to catch up with friends, both recent and long-term.

As the newly appointed Chairman of the Southern Region, Diarmuid Cronin paid tribute to all the GROW members, staff and Regional Team members and looked forward to an exciting year ahead.

Michael Manning was honoured for his 40 years in GROW, the many years he served as Area Coordinator in the Southern Region and now in his current role on the Regional and Program Teams.

Jerry Cronin, Area Coordinator in the Kerry region, was awarded his certificate for his successful completion of the Leadership Course, which he says has helped him enormously in his role and understanding of GROW.

Also in attendance were James Quilligan, Regional Manager and Christine Fitzgerald, National Program Coordinator, who travelled from Limerick to join in the festivities.

Another successful evening was enjoyed by all, and many thanks to Treasa Twomey and Brenda Beausang for their role in organising the event.
