Hollywood Fair and Heritage Week !

Some of our members are participating in cultural and community events in the coming days:

Hollywood Fair

Kathrina, Colleen and Dee are involved in the Hollywood Fair again this year, demonstrating the age old craft of felting on Sunday, 20th August.  The Hollywood Fair takes place in Hollywood Village, Co. Wicklow from Wednesday, 16th until 20th August and is really a great day out.  There is such a lot to do and see from sheep sheering and dog trials to basket weaving and black- smith displays, great music and most people dress in 1950s clothes.  Drop in and say hello.
