On Saturday the 31st October 2009 the Burrenbeo Trust presents "A Burren Miscellany" at Johnson’s Hall, Kinvara. Doors open at 8.30pm to start at 9pm. The Trust is hosting a celebration of the rich cultural history of the Burren through traditional song, story-telling and music. This special evening will feature uileann pipes player Eugene Lambe, poems from Josie Sullivan, songs from Tony Trundle and Paul Mulligan, and stories from Caoilte Breatnach and a very special guest. This entertainment is open to everyone, both members and non-members of the Trust. Entry is €10 per person. On the following day (1st November) at 2pm you can join the Burrenbeo Trust Monthly Walk, exploring turloughs with Dr James Moran. The Burrenbeo Trust is delighted to have Dr James Moran imparting his expertise on turloughs. James has recently started lecturing at Sligo IT but prior to that was working on the BurrenLIFE project advising farmers on various aspects of the science behind their land in the Burren. The walk will meet at Gortlecka Cross near to Mullaghmore where the NPWS signs are. It is advisable to wear wellington boots in case it is wet underfoot. Everyone is welcome.
