We have organised the study trip with the present counsel under the direction and help of our president Dr. Eddie Jordan and the committee.
We plan to have our popular study tours abroad back up and running next year as this Covid Crisis should be under control.
Our planned study tour to the USA for 2020 will be postponed to 2023 or possibly changed to a European destination. All decisions on travel as you can well understand is dependent on the course of Covid-19 and the safety of all our members and the public.
Prior to the outbreak of Covid-19 the committee met regularly in central locations such as Horse & Jockey, Portlaoise or Tullamore to arrange and set up events for the upcoming year but since the restrictions all of this communication is being carried out by Email, Phone and Zoom meetings.
With improvements in wireless and fibre broadband most of our members are now able to log in on Virtual meetings,
