THE Wexford Federation of the ICA held its first ‘in person’ meeting since lockdown recently, much to the delight of the members.

The meeting took place in the Riverside Park Hotel and 15 guilds were represented.

Current Wexford President Breda Cahill, presided over her first meeting and did an excellent job. Plans were made for the National Winter Conference which will be held in The Amber Springs Hotel, Gorey, on Friday and Saturday, November 5 and 6.

A number of other plans were outlined at the meeting including an upcoming cookery demonstration by Mary D’Arcy which will take place in Oylegate Community Centre on Saturday, November 20, at 2 p.m.

That event is being organised by Mary Somers.

Sheelagh Delaney, the ICA’s Women’s Refuge rep appealed to members for toiletries for the refuge and her words were met with a very enthusiastic response from those in attendance resulting in her receiving an abundance of gifts on the day.

The members were also told that the ICA Fun Run held in September for Wexford Hospice Home Care and Wexford Rape Crisis Centre was a resounding success.

The organisation’s sports officer, Anne O’Connor, will present the funds raised at the federation meeting this coming weekend.

Timire, Eilis McCann, gave the meeting an informative tribute to former National President, Mamo McDonald, who passed away earlier this year.

A number of members are also planning to visit An Grianan before the year ends and participate in a wide variety of courses.

The courses in An Grianan are also available to non ICA members. 

There was great excitement at the meeting as the results of the most imaginative witches hat competition were announced.

The overall winner was Mary Somers, from Oylegate guild, and she faced very tough competition from Marian Donnelly, Camross (2nd), Betty Rossiter, Oulart (3rd), and Mary D’Arcy, Ballyfad (4th).

The next federation meeting will take place on Monday, November 29.
