Prompted by members to organise more social occasions – as opposed to the technical, conference and seminar programme – CIBSE Republic of Ireland Region held a BBQ in Dicey Reilly’s in Harcourt St, Dublin 2, during the last week in July.
People started to arrive from 6.30pm onwards and food was still being served up as late as 8.30pm.
For a first-time event it proved very successful. The food and craic was excellent, while the older members in attendance gradually became accustomed to the frenetic buzz and loud music.
The sensible among us started to drift homewards at about 10.30pm while the younger contingent – and braver older contingent – stayed on with the intention of drifting up the road to “Coppers”. What transpired after that remains “on tour!” ■
