Our annual show for 2013 will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 5th August in St. Columbas Parish Centre (Old Borough National School) in Swords. This year our show is an official event for “The Gathering Ireland 2013″. To celebrate The Gathering we have added two new Gathering themed classes to our show in our Flower Arranging and Photography sections. We have also added a new class for eggs for the first time ever in our show. Staging times are on Sunday evening from 7pm-9:30pm and Monday morning from 8am-11am. The show will be open from 2pm-5pm and presentation of prizes will take place at 5pm.

Margaret Thorpe passes away
It is with regret that we announce the death of our President, Margaret Thorpe, last Tuesday 25th September 2012. Margaret served as President of the Society for the last 18 years, and her contribution over her lifetime membership has been invaluable to us all. Margaret’s popularity extended far beyond Swords, as she warmly welcomed so many of our neighbouring Societies to our Annual Show every year. She will be sadly missed by us all, but will be remembered with great fondness. May she rest in peace.
