Brush Pile Creation and Tree Maintenance: Coill na Luise Reserve (Wicklow)

We will meet at Trooperstown Car Park at 10AM on Sunday 10th December 2023 and carpool to our Laragh Reserve nearby.

Once on site, our first priority will be to tackle tree maintenance. We will divide into two teams; Guard Repairers and Maintainers. The repairers will repair any tree guards in need, while the maintainers will cut back competing vegetation at the base of our trees. We will move as a unit from one enclosure of trees to the next.

After a break for tea, coffee and our packed lunches, we will move timber into the reserve into key locations to create our biodiversity brush piles. The timber in question is sourced from a local native oak woodland, where it has fallen naturally, as donated by one of our generous branch members.

Annamoe Christmas Tree Lighting

The Christmas Tree Lighting will take place at 4pm on Sunday 10th December at the Annamoe Christmas Tree followed by festive treats and santa at Plantbox coffee/food dock beside the Annamoe bridge. Non-alcholic mulled wine and mince pies for adults €5. Hot chocolate and cookies for children €4. Kindly supported by Annamoe Centre and Wicklow County Council.

Candle Light Choir Event

Come sing carols by candlelight on Tues 19th December at 8pm in St.Kevin’s Church, Laragh. Refreshments to follow.

Laragh Christmas Lights

Our volunteers have been out for the past 3 Sundays working so hard to get the Christmas Lights ready for our Christmas Tree Lighting event on 2nd Dec at 6pm. We are delighted that we have had some new volunteers to add to the amazing crew. Thanks to each and every one of you for giving up all your time to help us. Thank you to Lynham’s Hotel Laragh as always for providing much needed breakfast each week to all our volunteers. Thank you to Glendalough Christmas Tree Farm and Porter Christmas Trees for providing any additional trees that we needed. We can’t wait for the switch on now.
