The inaugural meeting of the Skerries GIY group was a roaring success. There were over sixty people packed into the cafe area of the Skerries Mills. We recieved support from the neighbouring GIY group in Balbriggan. We also had a guest horticulturalist from the nearby Ardgillan Castle explaining the basics of sowing seeds and transplanting. We were also very pleased to welcome Trevor Sargent, Minister for Food & Horticulture, to this inaugural GIY meeting as a guest speaker.
Skerries GIY also publisiced the new allotments which will be available from May this year, and are located just past Downside on the road to the golf club, within easy walking distance of the town. Next meeting of Skerries GIY is on Monday 8th March at 8pm in Joe Mays. Everyone welcome
