County Carlow Association London’s 46th Annual Dinner is 18th October in the Crown Moran.


Have you got those post holiday blues?

Then cheer up because County Carlow Association London’s Annual Dinner is set for Saturday 18th October in the world famous CROWN MORAN HOTEL at 152 Cricklewood Broadway, Cricklewood, London, NW2 3ED. and is all set to be a fantastic night with music song and dance in true Carlow fashion.

‘The Crown’ Pub is one of London’s most iconic pubs in North London and was cited by The Dubliner’s in their well-travelled song McAlpine’s Fusiliers – “The ‘craic’ was good in Cricklewood and they wouldn’t leave the Crown”

The much looked-forward-to event is the Number 1 fixture in our yearly calendar and the ideal opportunity for all Carlovians and their friends here in London to catch up for some good old ‘craic caint agus ceoil’. Delegates visiting from Carlow include Cllrs from Carlow County Council together with some ‘added VIPs’ and a ‘host of surprises’ – certainly a night not to be missed. Plenty of craic agus ceol on the agenda.
