The new committee of the St Patrick’s Society of the Algarve elected in May welcomed the Irish Ambassador to Portugal to its “End of Summer Party” held on September 3 in the garden of organisers Alan and Pat Camplin-Smith in Armação de Pêra.
Ambassador Orla Tunney, who was accompanied by her husband Dr Bruce McIntosh, joined members and guests for a three-course dinner and music entertainment.
The committee prepared the starters and desserts while Liza Walker’s Fat Pig Hog Roast Company served a main course of spit-roast chicken and lamb with salads and potatoes. After dinner, Vitor turned up the tempo for dancing.
The next event will be a visit to a winery in Beja on October 4, followed by a quiz dinner on October 15.
