Throughout these unusual times, we have been grateful to our members for keeping communication lines open. We loved hearing from you and seeing you on our Zoom meetings. Your Committee were unanimous in agreeing not to make any charges for renewals during the 2020 – 21 season, and in agreeing to keep renewals/new membership to Sterling 10.00 or Euro 10.00 for the 2021-22 season.
Looking forward, we are hopeful of being able to meet in person at the 2021 – 22 Retreat [22nd – 24th April 2022 in Maynooth]. There are plans afoot for other events, but time will tell whether they come to fruition. Certainly, we are meeting on Monday November 8th with Kathy Ross – textile artist.

As we have had some queries regarding difficulties with the online payment – please take note of what some of these notes from our Treasurer:
“It looks like we need to add our BIC number to the bank details on all correspondence as one member required this.
I have spoken to the bank and they tell me that the IBAN and sort code are sufficient unless it’s an international deposit.
In most cases the problem lies with members being confused with letters and numbers: eg zero and letter o or number 1 and the letter I.
The bank details are correct and work for the majority.
Our BIC is BOFIIE2D. Only number here is 2″
