Cead Mile Failte

“A Hundred Thousand Welcomes” to our 2021 Brochure

I have a list of people’s names all written in a book
And at the start of each new year I go and take a look
And that is when I realise that those names are a part
Not of the book they’re written in but of my very heart

For each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime
And in each meeting they have become a special friend of mine
So you are one of many folk who in times past I’ve met
And happen to be one of those I don’t wish to forget

So thank you for your friendship in all the years now past
And I hope that in the years to come our friendship it will last
So as you browse our brochure those memories I’ll keep dear
And I wish you health and happiness throughout the coming year

Best wishes,

John Candy
