On Wednesday 24th July, 10 members of the Club headed to Wexford for a day trip. It was a lovely sunny day. Having met in Passage East to car pool, we then headed to Kilmokea Gardens near Campile. As is usually the case, it was necessary to get out the tea before the cameras. We spent an enjoyable couple of hours in the Gardens. They were in full bloom and well worth the visit. Then time for more tea.
Having finished the tea, an unscheduled visit was made to the Barrow Bridge, which was only just down the road. The Barrow Bridge has the distinction of being the longest railway bridge in Ireland.
We then went to the PortLairge, an old dredger that used to work on the River Suir in Waterford. It is now a derelict hulk near Saltmills.
From there, we traveled to Hook Head for a couple of hours. There was a stiff breeze coming in off the sea, which made for interesting movement on the water.
Hunger then kicked in and having returned by ferry to Passage East, a trip was made to Dunmore East for a feed of fish and chips.
As always, many thanks to Norma for organising a great day out.
