Annual General Meeting, Birr, 2017

BarReports are coming in on the A.G.M. weekend in Birr with some members posting images on Facebook with their comments.

It would seem there was some rain but that this did not dampen spirits and that it was a very enjoyable weekend. Certainly some of the private comments on the garden were simply gushing in their delight.

Victor and Roz Henry, Jenny & Dennis Constable, Sharon Morrow, Barbara Kelso and Anne-Marie Woods have sent photographs for me to use – many thanks to them for taking the time to do so – and I hope they give you a flavour of the weekend.

We will begin with Birr Castle grounds from Victor and Roz Henry:

I can add further photographs as they come to hand but in the meantime, enjoy the show and many thanks to Jenny, Victor and Roz and congratulations to those who organised the event – members of the Leinster Committee.
