Summer Outings A Few Pictures

The summer has been a busy one, and the sunny south-east lived up to its name. On the 13th of July we discovered the wonders of the Copper Coast European Geopark in Bonmahon with Mr Jim Cullian.

And we crossed the river to County Wexford, for a guided tour of Dunbrody Abbey on the 30th July.

During Heritage week, Mrs Joan Johnson brought us to the original Quaker Burial Grounds, known as the Parliament Street Burial Grounds, where a new plaque, and seating were  to be officially unveiled that Saturday
