Naul GIY. Seamus Ennis Centre. Thursday March 7th


GIY Naul, Peter Donegan

Coz there ain’t no website for The Naul. And they’re only up down over the road. And if you are into gardening, there ain’t no Ballyboughal Gardening society. Of course there could be…. have a brew on it. Ye know the numbers etc.

Anyhows straight from the garden blog, this Thursday I will be giving a talk at The Seamus Ennis Cultural Centre at The Naul GIY first monthly meet of 2013. Here’s what Denise Dunne of The Herb Garden and The Naul GIY had to say:

Next Thursday, 7th March, I am delighted to welcome Award Winning garden designer, Peter Donegan as our guest speaker. Peter will give a talk on ‘Design Trends’, and the evolution of landscape design, from the 17th century to date. Edible gardens play a large part, as they go in and out of fashion. Design trends, good and bad, seem to continually repeat themselves.

After Peter’s talk there will be some time for a Q&A, and a bit of a chat.

Peter is a local (Award Winning) garden designer and landscaper, based in Ballyboughal.

He also presents ‘The Sod Show’, Ireland’s only gardening radio programme, and (also Award Winning!) podcast. You can listen back here.

I can promise you that this will be a very enjoyable evening. Not only is Peter extremely knowledgeable, he is also a very entertaining speaker, who can paint a picture with words, and really engage an audience.

There will be a small admission fee of €3.00, to cover costs. All welcome.

Hope to see you there,
