ANZAC Day Tuesday 25 Apr 23 will be the next RAQ-NQ function with Flynn's Irish Bar opening its doors after the dawn service for a quiet tot or two before the Strand march (step off 0930h) under the RAQ Tri Colour banner before re-convening back at Flynn's to reflect on the day for those still serving, who have served or those who have paid the ultimate price. We hope to see you all there.
