Future activities

Talks and Visits

Our Talks take place in the Family Centre next door to the Holy Rosary Church in Greystones, at 8.00pm on (normally) the third Thursday of each month. A small charge is made to cover the cost of hiring a room. Our Visits (normally) occur on Sundays throughout summer. Start times vary. Keep an eye of this page for the most up-to-date information.

Visit to places of interest in Dublin: 19th May 2019

We invite members and friends to join us on our first Sunday outing of the year, on the 19th of May 2019. This will be a visit to sites in Dublin. Our first stop will be in Henrietta Street for a guided tour of the recently opened Tenement Museum where we will see how so many Dubliners lived in the early part of the last century. Following a light lunch of tea/coffee and sandwiches in the Plaza Hotel we will then proceed to the Hugh Lane Gallery in Parnell Square for a guided tour of the Gallery as well as learning the history of the building itself.

The cost, to include coach, entry fees and lunch, will be €30 per person. The coach will leave from outside the AIB Bank, opposite Greystones Train Station, at 10.15am. To book a place, please ring Aileen Short (on 01 287 6416) as soon as possible.
