First off, congratulations to Brehon Senator Mike Stack whose campaign to be Pennsylvania’s next Lieutenant Governor was successful.
We wish him the best of luck in his new role!
But there is no rest for the wicked, as we have another election to look forward to: the Philadelphia Bar Association elections on December 9!
Brehon board member Maureen Farrell will be running for the board of governors, so if you want to make sure the Brehons have a say in the Bar Association, make sure your membership is up to date. It’s always a tight election and every vote counts. So make sure you are eligible! And if you sign up now, your membership still counts for next year.
You’ll have a chance to meet Maureen and hear more about the other candidates at our next meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, November 18 at 6 p.m.

Brehon Christmas Party –
Tue, December 16 at 5:30 p.m.
Save the date!
This year, in the spirit of the season, the Brehons will be partnering with Irish Network-Philadelphia to host a Christmas fundraiser for Kevin Neary, a young man who was paralyzed after being shot outside his home in Northern Liberties.
Details to follow – but it’s an excellent cause and also sure to be a great time – and a chance to add some new people to your network. Really – it’s a trifecta of Christmas parties and I haven’t even mentioned the music or Christmas cheer.
So save the date of December 16!
