The Village Green Club

November’s club night was what one might call a virtual horticultural medical tour. Alan Wallace was our guest speaker. Alan is a specialist on daffodils. He regaled us with the many medical crises that might befall the humble daffodil. Beware of that dreaded daffodil eelworm, as this little guy can destroy your Daffodils and rumour has it that Janet is looking for him in the Big Black Bag.
For the club night on the 21st Dec the Members, under the guidance of Adrienne Murphy decorated the Church of the Immaculate Conception for the Christmas Festival. After the hard work, the Club members retired to the Ballymore Inn for their Christmas Social. On behalf of the Club we wish to thank Adrienne for her wonderful input into the night, the sponsors of the flowers, Tom O Keefe of Naas Insurance and Kevin Keenan of KTK, and to the Staff of the Ballymore Inn for putting the finishing touches to our night.
A reminder to members especially our new members, there will be no Club night in January as the Committee take a rest. Our guest speaker for Feb is Sally McCaffrey who is going to talk to us on her 10 favourite trees for the large garden and for the small garden.
