Major Flower Festival Comes to Roscrea

St. Cronan’s Church of Ireland, Roscrea, will host a major Flower Festival designed by award winning florist Richard Haslam from 17th - 20th August. The title of the festival ‘Heralding our Heritage’ is very appropriate given that the church is celebrating its bicentenary this year and that the event comes at the start of National Heritage Week. Roscrea’s spiritual, historical and cultural heritage will be represented by spectacular floral displays designed by Richard and created by his team of talented local florists and flower arrangers. This is truly an event not to be missed! The festival will be launched with a concert in the church on Friday 17th August at 7.30pm which will include musical contributions from Roscrea Junior Comhaltas, Virtuoso Chamber Choir, Nicole Robinson, Jennifer Dann, and Jonathan Carter. A Cheese and Wine reception will precede the entertainment and after the concert patrons will be able to peruse the wonderful floral creations at their leisure. Tickets will be available at the door priced at €15. There is no reserved seating so come early! Opening times for the rest of the weekend are as follows: Saturday 18th - 10am - 8pm; Sunday 19th - 12pm - 8pm; Monday 20th - 11am - 5pm. Admission €8 with children under 12 free when accompanied by an adult. A donation from proceeds will be made to the Laurels Hospice Unit, Roscrea. Enquiries to Rev. Lesley Robinson 087 9091561
