On Friday 23 November the Northern Ireland Kerry Hill Society met at the Rosspark Hotel for their annual dinner. 

It was the highest attendance that had attended with 53 people including members, friends, and family and it was great to see a few new members attending.

Following the meal the presentation of prizes took place,which was followed by a raffle to raise funds for the NI society and an auction of a voucher for an overnight stay with breakfast which the Rosspark kindly donated.
