The Samaritans will hold their Bangers and Mash Lunch in The Pembroke Hotel, Patrick Street on Thursday from 12.30 to 2.30pm.

Lunch in style
Super Valu, Market Cross will supply their award winning sausages for the event.
With Deegan’s Fruit & Vegetable Suppliers donating the potatoes, the staff of the Pembroke Kilkenny Hotel will prepare and serve up the lunch in style.
“Thousands of people in the Kilkenny/Carlow area experience mental health issues each year,” said Tracy Millea, patron of the Samaritans.
“The Samaritans offer a crucial listening service to help those in need. I am delighted to help draw attention to this very worthy event.
The annual Bangers and Mash lunch always draws a great crowd. For just €10 you can taste the delights of Super Valu’s award winning sausages and the Pembroke’s famous onion gravy while at the same time supporting the Samaritans.”
