Santa visits the club

14 December 2014

Kevin & Caroline Burke with their grand daughter Èabha.<br>Èabha's parents are Eamonn & Niamh Burke

Santa arrived at Howth Yacht Club on Sunday afternoon to meet and chat with the many children (and grandchildren) of club members. The cold and breezy weather did not delay his arrival all the way from the North Pole, and he was greeted by Commodore Brian Turvey, Master of Ceremonies Kevin Burke and more than 120 excited children.

Many thanks to Kevin and Caroline Burke and their teams of helpers, elves and others who assisted for such a joyous day for the children and their families.
