ICRO 50th anniversary

The 50th anniversary of ICRO’s founding occurs this year and to celebrate this, a number of events will be held on Saturday 11th June 2011.

The Grand Opening of the ICRO NW rescue base will be held at Cladagh Glen with demonstrations and group photos to be taken. From there, we will move to the Killyhevlin House Hotel near Enniskillen where a formal dinner will be held with ICRO/guest speakers, slide show and partying until the small hours.

Tickets for the dinner will cost €35/£30 and are available from les dot brown at gmail dot com. Note that tickets are limited.
