Dublin Federation’s proposed day in An Grianán will take place on Wednesday May 4th. This is meant to be a get together of Guilds for a social gathering to mark (hopefully) the return to normality and to say that ICA in Dublin is “ar ais arís”
The proposed structure of the day is:
Arrive 11am for tea/coffee & scones.
Tour of An Grianán for members not familiar with what is on offer.
There will be some time devoted to “Sit & Get Fit” and another session of simple exercise for mind and body.
Some entertainment – not formal!! So have your party piece ready!!
Some crafty time hopefully
Afternoon Tea will be served at 3.30pm approx.
The total cost for the day is €30 per person
