"Adventures on the Road" with Shirley Lanigan @ Old Courthouse

‘Adventures on the Road – Two Decades of Encounters with Gardeners and their Gardens.’

With a background in journalism and art, Shirley Lanigan has been writing about gardens and garden visiting in Ireland for around twenty years. She is passionate about Irish gardens and their gardeners and has spent her time criss-crossing the island visiting every open garden she can find, interviewing the people who made and work them.  The results of these travels are four books on Irish gardens and the people who created and care for them. Her latest book is ‘The Open Gardens of Ireland’ (2017).

Join us for Shirley’s entertaining illustrated talk as she shares with you some of her favourite stories of gardeners and their gardens.

Refreshments provided, plant raffle on evening.
