I’ll do whatever I can to help promote bonsai in Ireland, and have done so across the island in recent years, both locally here in Northern Ireland, and in Leinster and Munster. I’ve tried to get Tim up and running in Connaught but the rural nature of the area has made that hard work so far, but we won’t give up. Come on Galway!
So, over the last few months I’ve been chatting with Paul up in Omagh, County Tyrone and he’s keen to try and get a club or small study group off the ground. He’s just made a Facebook page to help garner interest and I said I’d give it a push from this end as well. I’ve committed to helping him get it off the ground with a few sessions and see how it goes. It will be based in Omagh town itself and will cater for those interested in bonsai on that side of Northern Ireland and indeed, Donegal as well.
If you follow this blog from the North West of Ireland and have always wanted a bonsai club in your area, this is your chance, don’t miss it. It takes someone with the motivation to get the ball rolling, and Paul is that man in that place right now!
This is a link to the Facebook Page, go and say hello and express an interest and we’ll keep you up to date with what’s happening as things progress.
Reblogged this on Wolf's Birding and Bonsai Blog.
Just a bit too far for me. Might have to get going in Craigavon.
Great to see another club opening up. Do you know if there is much activity in the Craigavon area ?
Not sure how I missed the comment the first time around! Sorry. Most people from your area usually just pop up to Belfast for the NIBS meetings. I’d happily support anyone willing to try and start a club more locally in your patch. Even a small study group to start with.

Thanks I will probably take a rest n to Belfast and then go from there if there’s enough interest locally.
