St. Patrick’s Day Feast 2019
In this year too, we have celebrated our traditional St. Patrick’s Day Feast in the rooms of the Oxford Club Bonn. And as always the atmosphere was relaxed and soaked with many fun and conversations. Not only members of the society were on site but guest, too. Some of these decided spontaneously to become members. The cake buffet has been plundered in an astonishing way.

But the highlight of the feast was the musical performance of the „Reel Talents“, a folk band of pupils of the Ludwig-van-Beethoven-Musikschule Bonn under the direction of Sabrina Palm. What Sabrina Palm performed with her children, from 10 up to 16 years old, was impressive. The young ensemble brought songs and instrumentals to the auditory, not only from Ireland, but from Scotland, too. Sometimes cheerful, sometimes melancholic, the „Reel Talents“ made the auditory so much excited
