Events & Shows

of the
Delgany and District Horticultural Society Rose Show
held in
St. Patrick's School on Saturday 30th June.

The Delgany and District Horticultural Society annual Rose Show was held last Saturday the 30th June 2018 in St.Patrick's School Greystones.

The beautiful sunny weather complimented the magnificent display of Roses, Sweet Peas and a variety of summer flowers-Begonias, Sweet William, Violas, Lillies and Lupins. The very colourful hanging basket displays were a delight and much admired by the large attendance at the show.

There was a fine display of fruit and vegetables and it was encouraging to see a beautiful presented basket of summer vegetables grown by the pupils of St Patrick's school on display at the plant stall.
