The Field Trip
The day will begin with a meet-up and writing exercise in the Glens Centre. Weather permitting we will then go on a car-pooling, wheelchair-accessible field trip to the Shannon Pot, followed by an alfresco lunch and writing session at the Cavan Burren.
There is a catering van at the Cavan Burren, run by Cuilcagh Catering. They offer soup, sandwiches, chips, breakfast baps, scones, tea, coffee etc – alternatively, you can bring your own lunch. We will return to the Glens Centre for the afternoon writing session.
The Met Eireann forecast offers the probability of 13°C, some light drizzle and a gentle breeze. So dress warm, wear rain gear, walking shoes or sandals – no need for boots – and, in case the forecast is entirely wrong, a sun hat. And if it looks like there will be more than occasional drizzle, we will follow an indoor-based mystery Plan B…
Feedback from the Bealtaine workshop
You brought the myths alive again for me… Very good workshop, well researched and well planned… I could not believe how much gold I unearthed… Very interesting triggers… An incredibly encouraging and talent-nurturing workshop….
