The group enjoyed their first outing to Bloom 2022 in Dublin last Thursday. They were delighted by the great weather, show garden exhibits, outstanding display and demonstrations on crafts with many food vendors, retail outlets and a botanical art display in the show. Picnic areas were provided for anyone to relax, chill and have lunch while listening to a wonderful array of musicians. A trip to remember this Summer.
The active retirement group meets every Tuesday morning from 11am – 12pm in the Brockagh Centre. Contact us at 0404 45600 to find out more about group gatherings.
