TRIP to Áras an Uachtaráin Report

25 July 2013

Six members of Causeway U3A travelled to Dublin on 25 July 2013 after receiving an invite to a reception for senior citizens hosted by President Michael D. Higgins. Along with representatives over from all over Ireland, the group enjoyed refreshments, entertainment from contralto Kathy Nugent and a tour of Áras an Uachtaráin.

In the more formal part of the reception, President Higgins spoke about the contribution that the older generation have made and still make to society. He also spoke of the importance of inter-generational contacts and was interested to hear that U3A had recently participated in a joint debate with school pupils in the House of Lords debating chamber.

Apart from meeting the president, another highlight was to meet Susan Jackson - at 101 years old, still living in her own house in Dublin and who amazed everyone with an impromptu but word perfect rendition of "Que Sera, Sera" when invited to sing along with Kathy Nugent.
