Saturday 5th May         Ulster American Folk Museum, Omagh

Immerse yourself in the world famous story of Irish emigration at the museum that brings it to life. Follow the emigrant trail as you journey from the thatched cottages of Ulster, on board a full scale emigrant sailing ship leading to the log cabins of the American Frontier.  Meet an array of costumed characters on your way with traditional crafts to show, tales to tell and food to share.

Address:

2 Mellon Road, Castletown, Omagh,
Co Tyrone BT78 5QU, Northern Ireland

Tel: +44 (0)28 8224 3292

Saturday 4th August   Benburb Mills – A Sean Barton tour!

Alan Hartley will publish more details about each outing closer to the time.

We plan to leave at 9am sharp from the Club. We generally meet up and organise drivers etc before leaving to share cars as much as possible.

Cost is £4.00 per person. This covers the cost of entry to venues and scones / tea for the morning. Sometimes there is no charge for getting in but this tends to be balanced out by other places where it costs more than £4.00.

Please bring your own lunch (although the girls usually have enough to feed everyone!)

Petrol money is sorted out by individual drivers on the day.
