Trip to the Mansion House
Saturday 12th March 2016 was a beautiful sunny day with blue skies.
Some members of Dundrum Arch Club and three helpers met up at the Lucas stop in Dundrum at 9:30am and took a trip into town. We got off the Lucas at Stephens Green. We took a walk through the green and sang the song “Dublin Can Be Heaven”. We then walked over to the Mansion House.
This trip was part of the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of ARCH Club. There was a lot of other Arch Clubs from around Dublin at the Mansion House. We all met the Lord Mayor. Her name is Criona Ni Dhalaigh. She is a lovely lady and she made a great speech and told us all about the history of the mansion house and all the rooms in it. We then all had a great walk around the house looking at everything. The house is 300 years old.
When the visit was over we all headed over to Milanos for lunch. It was super. It was a great trip.
At the end we had a bit of a sing song.
It was a fantastic day.
