Church Clubs & Groups Meeting in August 2017

There are currently four social clubs in the church – Film Club (first Wednesday of the month), Book Club (last Wednesday of the month), and Theatre Club (as advertised).  All are taking a Summer break this month but will return next month or in September.

Theatre Club
A group of congregatinon members (led by Patrick Rogers) like to go to the theatre every now and again.  This month, they are going to see a film – The Big Sick at the IFI this Friday 4th August (screening at 8.40pm).  There is also a plan to go to Jimmy’s Hall by Paul Laverty at the Abbey Theatre on Tuesday 8th August.  If you’d like to join them for either or both or these, or attend any future trips, make contact with Patrick at email hidden; JavaScript is required and he will be glad to give you more information.

Walking Club

The Walking Club like to go and walk in places around Ireland (mostly near to Dublin) roughly once a month.

The next walk is the Djouce Deerpark Walk on Saturday 26th August next..  Walkers should meet up at Poppies in Enniskerry at 11.00  for an 11:30 start.  Walk duration is 3 hrs approx plus a stop for a picnic lunch on the way.  Starting at  Long Hill Car Parks this trail on forest road and track follows the old driving road to the now dry Paddock Ponds before climbing a switch back road to a stretch along forest boundary, finishing with a pleasant gradual climb. Panoramic views include the Sugarloaf, Bray, Klilliney Hill, Dublin Bay, Howth, Glensoulan Valley, Maulin and an extensive area of wild land to the west.

If you would like to know more, or would like to join them on this or future walks, please contact Marcus email hidden; JavaScript is required
