Our Outings Committee have been working very hard on planning various outings for the club – there’s the ‘big trip’ later in the year to Nerja and in the more immediate future there are trips planned to Curraghmore House & Gardens, The Falconry in Kilamllock, The Saltees, and Spike Island. If you are interested in going on any of these outings please contact one of the Outings Committee to book your seat. In the mean time have lots of Fun With Photography.
