Failte and Slainte! There are a few tickets left for the St Patrick’s Gala Dinner in Golf Costa Adeje on Saturday 14 March. The venue has become something of a green and gold standard for this excellent event, given the top class catering and superb wines that are part of the dinner. And your host for the evening is the Honorary Irish Consul, Álvaro de la Bárcena Argany, who is now also a deputy minister in the regional government.

Tickets are €45 and some of that money, as well as funds raised by raffle during the dinner, will go the the Asociacion San Juan, an Adeje-based day centre for children and adults with special needs. For ticket reservation, call Noelle on 633 399 827 or Denise in the Irish Consular Office, mornings, 922 245 671. Hope to see you there!

There is no question that this is an evening of great fun, great food and great craic! And of course you don’t have to be Irish to be part of the Gala event – it’s an open Failte and Slainte for all who would like to join us.
