Please note that Society House is closed this Friday 20 October 2017 due to the Winter Outing. Apologies for any inconvenience.
We are now taking bookings for our Autumn Excursion to Monaghan County Museum and the privately-owned Bellamont House in Cootehill.
The coach will depart from Society House at 9.00am. Upon arrival in Monaghan town, we will have a short coffee break. We will then visit the Monaghan County Museum to view its extensive collection, covering the history of the county from the end of the last Ice Age over 10,000 years ago all the way to modern day. Following lunch in Clones, we will have a rare opportunity to visit the privately-owned Bellamont House – often described as the greatest Palladian villa ever built in Ireland.
The cost the of excursion is €45 for members and €50 for guests to include cost of coach, tours and lunch.
THE AUTUMN EXCURSION IS FULLY BOOKED.
This Winter Outing will be a great occasion to follow up on the 2016 talk by Dr Ellen Rowley. Mr Charles Duggan will show us how the plans for the conservation, repair and reuse of 14 Henrietta Street as a museum have been implemented.
