Ballycotton Lifeboat Annual Gala Dinner

Ballymaloe House have supported Ballycotton Lifeboat with an annual fundraising gala dinner since opening their Yeats Room restaurant in 1964.  We are delighted to host this event every February, not only because we wish to support and raise awareness and funds to help the incredibly important work our local lifeboat station and crew do, but from a personal point of view, Myrtle and Ivan Allen happened to meet at a Ballycotton Lifeboat fundraising event at Ballymaloe House in the early 1940's when the house was then owned by the Lichfield family.
