Plandaí Oidhreachta at the Dalkey Book Festival!

June 17, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

- €10

This is a very special event in the Secret Garden! A live demonstration of botanical painting with Lynn Stringer, a member of the Irish Society of Botanical Artists, will be followed by a conversation with Paddy Tobin, chairman of The Irish Garden Plant Society. Paddy will talk about  the intrinsic beauty of our plants, the plants of our island, of our gardens and of our people. Tobin proves that the love of good plants and the skills of plant breeding are strong as he weaves tales of Irish snowdrops, old irises, Irish sweet peas and dahlias.
