The annual MU Women’s Getaway was held in Armagh City Hotel on the 18th and 19th October. Approximately 100 ladies met on Friday evening for a drinks reception at Palace Stables hosted by Lord Mayor Mealla Campbell. The drinks reception was followed by an evening meal and Scottish Country Dancing in the hotel.

On Saturday morning a further 100+ ladies joined in for the day. The speakers were Bishop Ken Clarke and his wife Helen. The theme for the getaway was Words of Wisdom and Bishop Ken and Helen referred to the book of Proverbs as well as giving us insights to their family life and ministry.

After midday prayers, the ladies enjoyed a scavenger hunt around the grounds of Palace Stables. Following lunch, the ladies split into 2 groups for a session on relaxation and keep fit. The afternoon concluded with presentations to Mary Bourke and Barbara Clarke who completed their 6-year terms as All Ireland Younger Member Reps.

A huge thank you to all involved in the organisation of a wonderful weekend of fun and fellowship.
