Submitted by Rashmi on Wed, 2016-12-14 18:16 Dublin: Konkans Ireland organised a Christmas celebration on Dec 11 at Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown. Caje-Archana, James-Marina, Mark-Helen, Santhosh-Saritha, Sathish-Latha and Brian-Monica were part of the Christmas Committee responsible to organise the event to mark 10 years of togetherness. After a welcome dance by committee members, the Birth of Jesus tableau was performed by Christmas committee’s family members. Kids had a great time as Santa distributed chocolates to kids. There was also a Konkan Ireland anniversary march and a cake cutting. Later, Mark Castelino recalled the last 10 years of Konkans Ireland with images and videos. Soon, it was time for cultural programmes. The Tauro family performed a lovely Baila dance, which was followed by Christmas Polka. Mementoes were distributed to every family as the commemoration of 10 years. Marina Bhore and Saritha Tauro compered the ceremony beautifully while Archana Gomes proposed the vote of thanks.
