MONTHLY MEETINGS

On the last Tuesday of each month, we meet in the Watch House Cross Library, 2 Cosgrave Park, Moyross. We start with tea & coffee at 10:30AM and finish around 12:00 noon. It's a great way to mingle and we often have an invited guest speaker on a variety of interesting topics such as walking the Camino, gardening, or learning about guide dogs!

NORDIC WALKING

COME AND JOIN US for Nordic walking. This is a total-body version of walking that can be enjoyed by both athletes and non athletes. The activity is performed with specially designed walking poles similar to ski poles. It is more beneficial than regular walking as Nordic walkers use more of their entire body.

Books
Thanksgiving Dinner

BOOK CLUB

The Book Club meets monthly, usually on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. It is an evening event and starts at 7:00 pm. As with most other events, it is held at a different member’s home each month and new members are always welcome. Previous books include And The Birds Rained Down, The Green Road, A History of Seven Killings, Norah Webster, An Invention of Wings, Valley of Amazement, The Signature of All Things and The Children Act.

THEMED DINNERS

We choose a restaurant and meet for dinner, sometimes availing of the “early bird specials”.  A lot of interesting and exotic places have opened up in Limerick in the past couple of years so it is an adventure to try them out.  Other times we have a Themed Lunch or Dinner where everyone participating makes one dish to produce a feast. So far we've done Italian, Fondue, Vegetarian, Malaysian and more!

THURSDAY GET-TOGETHERS

This group meets either in a different member’s home every Thursday at 10:30AM or at a local tea/coffee shop.  It is a chance to relax and have a chat as well as a forum for getting answers to queries or sharing concerns in a social setting.

MAHJONG

Fancy a game of Mahjong? This is a tile-based game developed in China but gained popularity universally since the 20th century. Played by four players it is a game of skill and strategy.

Playing Cards
Chalkboard with Different Languages

SHANGHAI CARDS NIGHT

We play Shanghai once a month, usually the first Monday of the month, again, in rotating member’s homes. All welcome – we teach you the game, so join us for the fun. It’s usually held at 7pm.

FRENCH CONVERSATION

Members who would like to improve their French get together for French conversation. This is usually arranged in one of the member’s homes and happens about once a month during the day. There’s talk of a Spanish conversation group too, so please contact us if you’re interested.
