Well done Wexford Lions.....................Click
We had great fun celebrating the 100th birthday of Wexford's St Patrick's Day parade. Our Lion was a huge hit with the crowd. He's quite friendly but we had him caged just in case he nabbed a few new members along the route.
Recently, Lions from all over Ireland and further afield gathered in the Keadeen Hotel , Newbridge for their annual Convention. The Convention was opened by An Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald TD. Our International Guests were Past International Director Judge Haines H. Townsend and his wife Donna. The Convention was chaired by our District Governor Paul Allen. Our hosts, Newbridge-Kildare Lions Club worked tirelessly to ensure that all present had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

The forgotten refugee children
I believe that the initiative being undertaken here offers the best opportunity for effective action to support children in The Lebanon and Turkey, while at the same time putting rescue boats to use in the Aegean Sea.
