    Thanks to all who attended this. As Ger said, we were piggy backing on a Heritage week outing by Clontarf heritage society. Their knowledge was immense. While the stops were possibly a little too long, it was a very enjoyable couple of hours along the promenade.

    As this walk was managed by Clontarf Heritage group, it was not our normal meetup, so was very much out of our control. The Heritage people were very enthusiastic and informative - probably too much! The attendance was large and a bit hard to hear the speakers at times- however as they were amateurs, they were very knowledgeable on the subject. Lovely day for the walk - the Clontarf sea front could have been the Med today!

    Folks, just remember there is a big match in Croke Park, so you may have to adjust your route and time. See you later. Ber

    • Ber B.

    HI Folks, as we are a large group, could we assemble at 2.15pm, so that we are all together before we meet with the host. We can go for a coffee afterwards and chat.
    Again can I ask you to change your RSVP if you cannot make it, if you could do this by 7pm tonight that would be great, as it would give someone on the waiting list time to receive their notification that they can join us and make their arrangements.

    Many thanks, see you tomorrow, Ber

    Raging I have to cancel - My Mother is doing a balloon ride (booked months ago) and we all promised to go with her to cheer her on. Didn't realsie the dates clashed. Sounds like a brilliant Meetup and hopefully it might run again as it looks to be very popular.

    Folks, As we are coming close to this outing, can I ask everyone to change their RSVP if they cannot make this event, as there is a long waiting list and if you cannot make it, someone on the waiting list will get an opportunity to attend. Many thanks, Ber
