Thank you to Margaret Quinn for her seasonal Zoom demonstration last night. It should get us all into the festive spirit, and give us some great ideas for bringing more greenery indoors, now that it’s colder outside.
The Christmas hat creations were wonderful, and we have a prize for all below: Mary Moore, Sile Chuinneagain, Rose Sevastopulo, Janet Jeffrey and Ann Campbell.
Our 3 raffle winners are:
Mary Guyett, Stella Barrett and Eileen O Brien
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas. We look forward to many more enjoyable events in the New Year.
Well done and thank you to Linda Murphy for her most detailed presentation on the fundamentals of garden design. Over 50 members attended Linda’s Zoom talk and Q&A session last night.
The winners of the raffle are Mary Harkin and Eoin Reilly who will both receive a copy of Dan Rouse’s book How To Attract Birds to Your Garden. The winners of the plant raffle are Ronan Markey, Niall and Ann Coulter and Sile Chuinneagain. Prizes are winging their way to you now.
Thanks to Prof. Jane Stout of Trinity College who delivered a most educational and interactive Zoom talk last night. Despite our initial technical challenges along with power cuts in parts of Howth we soon got going and 45 people attended the inaugural talk. It was a great success and we hope to have more like it for the season we are currently in.
