Upcoming Outing Sunday 7th August : Stradbally with Cian Flaherty and Ben Murtagh

Join us this Sunday afternoon for a guided visit of beautiful Stradbally Village.

We will be shown around by archaeologist Ben Murtagh and historian Cian Flaherty. 

Starting in the Square, we will learn about the development of the present village in the late 18th/early 19th century, before heading up Church Lane for a tour of the medieval parish church and adjoining graveyard. This will be followed by a visit to the Woodhouse Museum, after which we will return to the village via Stradbally Cove.

Meet in The Square, Stradbally at 2:30 pm
