GAR­DEN PARTY AT TRUDDER GRANGE

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - PICTURES -

THE St Patrick’s Kilquade Con­fer­ence of the St Vin­cent de Paul or­gan­ised a gar­den party for last Sun­day in the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings of Trudder Grange.

The con­fer­ence caters for Round­wood, Kilquade, Kil­coole, New­town­moun­tkennedy, Del­gany and Newcastle and there has a huge level of sup­port shown to­ward the an­nual event. All the pro­ceeds raised form the fundraiser go to­ward the St Vin­cent de Paul Con­fer­ence’s work in these ar­eas.

Trudder Grange is a se­cluded, pri­vately-owned gar­den and old es­tate lo­cated near to New­town­moun­tkennedy. Ap­proached by an av­enue of 200 year old beech trees, the gar­den has de­vel­oped over the last 30 years from a stony field into a gar­den full of shrubs and herbaceous borders, an or­ganic vegetable gar­den and with a green­house pro­duc­ing many va­ri­eties of toma­toes.

There was plenty of lovely food for guests to chow down on, in­clud­ing a large bar­be­cue and some home made good­ies. There was also no short­age of en­ter­tain­ment for younger vis­i­tors, in­clud­ing games, face paint­ing and bal­loon sculpting.
