Barbara Gill Memorial Event, Easter Monday, 17th April, Wicklow

5 Apr 2017

As many of you will be aware the 10th anniversary of our friend Barbara's death is coming up on the 19th of April. Barbara was an activist all her life, and her friends and family are marking the 10th anniversary of her death with an event in Co. Wicklow on Easter Monday, 17th of April.

If you are up for a Walk, friends of Barbara will meet in the Avondale Forest Park, just south of Rathdrum Village 2.00 pm for a walk. 

This will be followed by a Memorial Event in the Rathdrum Town Park @ 4.00 pm, where her family and friends along with VSI have planted a tree in her memory.

Again this will be followed by a Get-Together in Izzy's & Jane's (about 5km from Rathdrum, directions on the day) with tea & scones. It would be nice if you could bring a cake for the get-together. There will also be a bucket for Donations to her School in Eritrea through Self Help Africa.

Barbara's enthusiasm & activism affected many of us, in many different circles: Kilkenny College, Kilkenny One World Group, VSI, the NODE Network/Comhlamh, Hillwalking Club, DICE; if you would like to support her and the work she has done please join us for the memorial event and share the legacy of activism.
