The Cathedrals Partnership again invited the U3A choir to take part in it annual “An Evening with Patrick” event. This year it took place on Tuesday, 15th March in the Market Place Theatre.
Our December meeting was held on the 16th December and saw a large turn out of members who were treated to mince pies, shortbread and a mulled (non-alcoholic!) drink. This was followed by the choir who topped and tailed a quiz from our own quiz master Dessie McLaughlin. The quiz was won by 6 members of the male section of the choir, which was appropriate as the quiz was mainly comprised of music questions.

It was a typical summers day for our walk, a few skiffs of rain, a cold breeze and the odd glimpse of the sun. The day started in the right fashion with tea/coffee and scones in Flame on Howard St. before meeting up at the City Hall with our guide Billy Dickson. The walk went along the City Hall taking in the monuments on the eastern side, and then on to the Dublin Road and the Ulster Hall where were able to see the paintings in the Carey Gallery. The walk then took us along Ormeau Avenue to Alfred St. to view St. Malachy’s church, best known for its fan vaulted ceiling which is an imitation of the Henry VII Chapel in Westminster Abbey. We then continued along Sussex Place and Hamilton Street to St Georges Market Bar and Grill for lunch.
