On Saturday 27 April we had reasonably good mixed weather for a walk in the park. St. Anne's Park in Clontarf, to be precise. Or Raheny, depending on your point of view. Local guide Gerard O'Rourke took us on a tour through the park and all it's significant points. Starting at the base of the former Guinness family home and visiting many other notable places and points, such as the pond with boat house, a historic well on the ground and many more. Gerard also brought us to the famous Tree of Life by artist Tommy Crags. 

Gerard also had with him a folio of historic pictures of the house and ground, which allowed us get a great impression. After a total of 2 hours walking up and down the park, we concluded our walk in the Cafe at the Red Stables.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating walk and tour.
