Prof. Cathal Kelly, Registrar / CEO of RCSI said ‘Every year we look forward to welcoming our local senior citizens to the College. The annual event is much anticipated by the locals and offers a good distraction from the cold days of winter! The staff of RCSI who organise the lunch do so voluntarily and they very much enjoy giving something back to the local community.'
