On 29th September 1990 the club celebrated the 60th year of its existence with a day of Celebrations at Westminster Cathedral.  There was a Mass in the Cathedral itself, a celebration dinner in what was then the Cornerstone Centre next to the Cathedral and an exhibition of photographs and other items arranged by the then vice president the late Fred McAndrew.

 

Below are some photographs of the event kindly provided by Maureen Cahalane.
