Photo DrL Dublin was the venue for a peal by the Society on the relatively recently augmented ring of sixteen at the Diocesan Cathedral of Christ Church. On Mon 17th Mar a peal of Bristol S Sixteen was successfully rung in 4 hrs 5 mins. With this peal, the ASCY became the first society to ring peals on each of the World's rings of sixteen.

The peal was rung at the conclusion of the St Patrick's Day parade through the centre of the Irish capital.

Here, Paul Mounsey is pictured with the crowds and the Cathedral in the background.
