ANNUAL CHURCH GATE COLLECTION: Thanks to everybody who contributed so generously to our Annual Church Gate Collection last week-end, despite the inclement weather. And a special thanks to Ger O’Shea, the co-proprietor of The New Yorkers Diner at 5 Bridge St. whose contribution of €50 was by far the biggest single contribution of the week-end. Ger and his family are residents in the heart of the Rock and Ger himself has participated in our Strictly Come Dancing competitions in the past. Thanks Ger again for that splendid donation.
