I am delighted to be confirmed as the President for this 98th year of the St. Patrick’s Society of Selangor and honoured to be part of such a long established community in Malaysia.
I have assumed responsibilities of President from Paul Mullins who I think you all will agree did an excellent job in difficult circumstances over the past year and led the “Mini Ball of 2022” which was a great success.
Each year, we give back to the local Malaysia community through donations to worthy charities – many of which are to help children from broken homes who are often left abandoned. One of my first tasks as President this year was the presentation of donation to our nominated charities which is a central part of why we exist.
As we emerge from the “lockdown era”, we are looking forward to getting back on track with some of the events which have become a staple part of our annual calendar. We will be hosting the Inter Society Quiz Night next month in Out of Africa and then follow on with our Angels Event, Ladies Lunch and then roll into Christmas with several other events. If you are interested in attending any of these events please email email@example.com.
Our main event – the Irish Ball – as its commonly now known – will take place at the Shangri La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 18 March 2023 with tickets going on sale in January 2023. Keep an eye out on Social media platforms for more details.
I thoroughly look forward to the year ahead working with our wonderful Committee and hope you engage with us on several of our events throughout the year. I also hope to build on our continued relationship with the Ambassador, Hilary Reilly, and all at the Irish embassy here in KL, as well as with Orang Eire, our sponsors, and all of the members of the society.
President of the St Patrick’s Society of Selangor
