15 of us had the great privilege of having a workshop with Malcolm on December 14th. We arrived empty handed and departed 2 hours later with 2 stunning arrangements – each made by ourselves under Malcolm’s guidance. He supplied everything and everyone went home ecstatic with creation.
Thanks to Clare Duggan for the photographs and to Mary Cahill for the account.

A large group of teachers attended the excellent legal talk by Tim Bracken at Oriel House recently. Tim spoke about the importance of making a will. He explained about Powers of attorney and the reasons why this should be arranged by people of any age. He spoke about inheritance and tax exemptions as well as the Succession Act.
Tim gave clear answers to the many questions which were posed by the audience. This was a really worthwhile event and was well received by those in attendance. Tim is a well-know legal author having written books about probate and modern family relationships and the law among others. He is frequently heard providing legal advice on the RTE Radio 1 Seán O’Rourke programme.
