Clontarf Horticultural Society
The Clontarf Horticultural Society is one of the oldest Dublin
horticultural societies. It was established 46 years ago and one of its
founding members, Leslie Mitchell, was instrumental in having the now
famous Rose Garden in St Anne’s park set up.
The Society meets monthly between October and May (excluding December) and has over 100 active members. Meetings take place on the last Thursday of each month at 8pm in GAA Club Seafield Road, Clontarf. non-members and all are welcome. Monthly meetings take the form of a gardening lecture followed by a Q&A session and tea and biscuits.
The Society puts on two flower shows each year, one in June and one in September, at which members exhibit flowers, fruit, vegetables, pot plants and shrubs from their gardens. Expert advice is on hand to help those interested in showing who may not have done so before.
New members are always welcome.
