Cannot praise the staff at 3 Arena enough, the care and attention we received made our day so much more enjoyable. Even Justin and Saskia enjoyed the day.  Photos are not great but show was fantastic.

Christmas party 2023


Our Christmas party saw the end of AFI social events for 2023.

It was a very busy year with many events held throughout Ireland.

AFI's Christmas party was held in the West County Hotel and saw a record number of members attend. 

We had talks by Kate Burke, S&L Therapist at the Ataxia Clinic, Tallaght and Dr. Mary Kearney, FARA Ireland.

A very emotional moment was the presentation of a farewell gift to our voluntary CEO Al Young, Al stepped down at our AGM in June 23 for health reasons.  Damien Treanor from Errigal Construction attended our party and shared many laughs with members. A great day was had and many new friendships formed.
