Two coach-loads of Senior Citizens travelled on a day trip to Killarney in 1991 for their annual summer outing. Having had lunch at the Glen Eagle Hotel, some then went on a trip around the lakes on the water bus. For many, it was their first time on the lakes, and it proved to an enjoyable experience. As for the dry land sailors, they felt that a visit to Kate Kearney's Cottage, and a walk up the Gap of Dunloe would be a safer (and more relaxing) way to spend the afternoon! Upon returning to the Glen Eagle, high tea was served at 6 p.m. On the way home from Killarney, the group stopped off at the Abbey Hotel in Ballyvourney for a lovely evening of music, song and dance. All in all it was a wonderful outing, which everybody enjoyed to the full. It was such a success, that already the next half-day outing, planned for the end of September, is being looked forward to with anticipation. The Senior Citizens Association would like to thank the people of Carrigaline for their wonderful support of the Day Centre Building Fund, which has now reached £39,000.
