What beautiful Walks we enjoyed last Monday

Mark Paviour certainly gave us the taste of five wonderful Irish Gardens,set in the South East of Southern Ireland.With stunning photographs and very informative knowledge of the trees and plants.A full history of the gardens origins,history and many facts on their constructions was given to us also the owners backgrounds.We all returned home after a very enjoyable evening. Many thanks Mark.
