2018 Diary Dates

Belfast Area
Saturday 20th January. 11am
Meet in the Museum Café, Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens, Belfast, BT9 5AB. A copy of OMEGA will be on the table. The Museum offers a variety of displays from art, science and history, taking you across Ireland and to all parts of the globe.

Guided tours are available so all tastes can be catered for.  Weather permitting the Botanic Gardens can be included in your itinerary. Admission is free and there is ample car parking available.

Munster Area
Saturday 10th March. 11am
Meet in the Gallery Café of The Crawford Municipal Art Gallery, Emmet Place, Cork. A copy of OMEGA will be on the table. During a previous visit to Cork we had insufficient time to explore the Gallery fully, so this is an opportunity to explore the extensive collections available encompassing historical and contemporary Irish and international art. There is usually a programme of temporary exhibitions also available. Admission is free. The gallery is in the heart of the city with access to shops and other attractions. Train, bus and parking facilities are within close proximity.

North West Area
Saturday 21st April. 11am
Meet in Costa Coffee, Foyleside Shopping Centre, Derry (Opposite the Tourist Information Centre) for a Guided Tour of Derry Walls and explore other city attractions. A copy of OMEGA will be on the table. The Walls’ tour costs £4.00 per person and provides insight to the history of the city including entrance to St. Columb’s Cathedral. Derry is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of walled cities in Europe. Family and friends welcome to all events.
