A farewell dinner will take place next month for one of Galway city’s leading and most popular Roman Catholic clerics and history tutors, Fr Dick Lyng of St Augustine’s Church.
The dinner will take place in the Ardilaun House hotel, Taylor’s Hill, on Friday October 11. The evening will begin with a reception with a glass of punch on arrival at 7.30pm, followed by dinner.
A gift will be presented on the night to Fr Dick on behalf of the people. Those who would like to donate can do so by picking up an envelope for this purpose either from the shop or at the back of the Augustianian church after weekend masses. Donations must be returned to the shop.
There will also be a message book for those who would like to leave a parting message to Fr Dick. This will also be presented to him on the night of the dinner. The book will also be left in the shop and be available after the weekend masses.
Tickets cost €25 which covers the welcome drink, a four course dinner, and a glass of house wine. Tickets can be purchased from the Augustianian Priory Office and will be available after weekend masses.
