Father Brian’s walk for Christ dinner

The dinner was held on Friday, July 27.  It was a wonderful turn out, there were around 45 guests in attendance to what was a truly fun filled night. 

With the life of the party being father Brian himself with his wonderful sense of humour in full swing as he flitted between the kitchen and his guests.

A three course sit down meal was the order of the night with a great spread of nibbles upon arrival.we started with grosse lisse tomato soup which was my personal favourite and went down a treat .

The main course consisted of several casserole style dishes, a beef, a chicken, a salmon, and Father Brian’s secret family German sausage recipe which was very hearty and made with with love.

We finished off the night with his favourite mud cake and custard or cream or both if you could possibly fit it in.

Tickets were sold for a wonderful raffle which was a , bottle of wine, $45 butt of beef voucher, $50 voucher, a hand made shawl and box of chocolates which was won by Ron Jones. if you missed out and would like to attend the Tullamore walk for Christ dinner it is on August 24 in Tullamore.
