Future activities

Talks and Visits

Our Talks take place in the Family Centre next door to the Holy Rosary Church in Greystones. Talks normally begin at 8.00pm but note the later start time (8.30pm) for our November event. A small charge is made to cover the cost of hiring a room. Note, from January 2020 our Talks will be held on Wednesdays rather Thursdays.

Our Visits (normally) occur on Sundays throughout summer. Start times vary. Keep an eye of this page for the most up-to-date information.

February 2020 Talk

The speaker at our February meeting will be Seán Laoide-Kemp who will present on 'Landscape as Witness: Representing the Public Works Scheme of the Great Irish Famine'. This event will take place at 8pm on Wednesday, 19th February 2020 in the Family Centre, Greystones. 

Spring Tour 2020

Our Spring Tour 2020 will take place from the 6th April to 9th April. Using our hotel, An Grianan in Burt, Inishown, County Donegal, as a base we will head off to sample the wonderful scenery and the places of historical interest in the surrounding area including Glenveagh House and Gardens, and Donegal castle.
