Kenny MacAskill MSP Scottish Government Justice Minister- Kenny will be proposing the Immortal Memory. The Scottish Government has provided strong support for the building of the Community Sports Club in the Inch. Kenny as Justice Minster but also as an Edinburgh MSP has ensured that he is kept up to date as the building work progressed. It is therefore very appropriate that Kenny should be our main speaker
Martin Hannan- For those who played for Lismore in the 80’s and 90’s Martin needs no introduction. A fair description of Martin both on and off the field would be a character! If you read sports page of Scotland on Sunday Martin name will be known to you. His coverage of sports includes rugby, football but is best known for his coverage of horse racing. Martin will be proposing the Toast to the Lassies

With an international career spanning 15 years Lee has an impressive 77 caps for Scotland, she has also been on 4 Lioness tours and was part of the winning 5 Nations team in 1998. Lee has a larger than life personality and will be certain to provide and entertaining reply from the lassies.
