Bonsai Club in Tyrone Anyone?

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.

Irish Bonsai Club – Interested?

Back in November I asked, Does anyone Irish still do Bonsai?

Well, things have moved on and I’m doing my bit to assist with the start up of a Bonsai Club/Study Groups in Ireland.

Adam, from Cork, is determined to get the ball rolling and I’ve offered my personal support and also that of our club The Northern Ireland Bonsai Society.

Adam is currently gathering names and email addresses to assess where the majority of those interested live. The club will then be tailored to fit the make-up of the group. I can see study groups starting in Cork, Dublin and Galway or, at the very least, getting people in contact with each other in these areas. These groups will all be part of the one club organising events,  trips workshops etc.

There’s no name yet, there’s no website yet but this will come soon. The question is:

Are You Interested?

If the answer is yes, drop an email to Adam at irishbonsai@gmail.com to register your interest.

This is it folks, now is your chance. It takes someone to step up and you have waited for many years for this to happen. Step up now and get this going. If it doesn’t happen now, how much longer will you have to wait??!!
