News Release February 2019
More than 130 guests attend Joe's Party
Dun Laoghaire Lions Club has been hosting an annual senior citizens party for 14 years. It was first held in Smyths Pub, moved to The Motor Yacht Club, and now is hosted in The Graduate.
It was called the Senior Citizens Party but in 2013, following the untimely death of Lion Joe Pankhurst, it was named Joe’s Party in honour of his huge input to event.
Joe’s Party is not exclusively restricted to senior citizens. People living in isolation with little social contact and those with mental or physical challenges are also invited.
More than 130 guests attended this year's party at The Graduate on Saturday, 23rd February, 2019.
