Bubble Show

One of our most popular children’s events this year was our Bubble Shows in Holmpatrick School! Split into two groups to cater for younger children and older, those who attended got to have loads of fun with bubbles! Starting from small bubble’s. to bubble art, to square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, smoking bubbles and getting yourself inside a bubble, this fun filled event was a great hit for all!

Printmaking Workshop with Margaret Becker

Posted on

Skerries Mills was the venue for the exciting and intimate workshop with Margaret Becker. Margaret is a stained glass artist and print maker who founded the Leinster Printmaking Studio in Clane along with some other artists.

A small group of 10 people attended the workshop with Margaret where they themselves had the opportunity to create their own set of print works with her help and guidance.

It was a workshop that was thoroughly enjoyable and interesting for all who attended and had the opportunity to have an insight in to Margaret’s marvelous career.

Fun Cycle 2010

Ray Ryan of the Skerries Cycling Initiative writes:

“The Soundwavers are getting their bikes ready for the SOUNDWAVEY FUN CYCLE TO ARDGILLAN organised by the Skerries Cycling Initiative (SCI) for Sunday September 22nd with a picnic by the Rosegarden. And if you think you can disappear without a trace during WAVEY-WAVEY , – HAH!, we’re going to FIND you!

All cyclists are welcome on the Fun Cycle but children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. There is some hill-climbing involved so this event is not suitable for small children who are not proficient cyclists.

Wavey Wavey by Michael Johnston
Do you see the wavey hand?

Cyclists will meet at the Skerries Mills car park at 12 noon, Sunday September 22nd, weather permitting. The SCI will provide stewards to assist the peloton in getting through junctions along the way.
Please check brakes, gears, tyre pressure, saddle height and lubrication. 
Children must be capable of using brakes on their bikes as the route includes significant descents in both directions.

Route to be followed : from the Skerries Mills car park via Millers Lane to  the railway roundabout, under the bridge followed by an immediate right turn up Togher Hill to Milverton Gates and right again along Ardla Rd. to Ardgillan.
For those who want it, a stewarded return to Skerries Mills Car Park will be offered in the early afternoon.

Don’t miss this chance to cycle safely to Ardgillan and have lots of fun on the way, and during the picnic! Weather permitting, as Ray says.
