East Antrim U3A Summer School

East Antrim U3A have organised a summer school and have sent the following details….

Our Summer School workshops are being run in Carrickfergus by East Antrim U3A on the east Antrim coast (not a regional event). We’d be delighted to welcome some of our fellow NI U3A Colleagues if anyone wishes to attend any of our planned events in July & August. We have negotiated prices with local hotels for those who’d wish to stay over and explore our lovely coastline.

The website for the summer school is Summer School Timetable

January lunch & Entertainment

Eleanor will be in the hotel for coffee  from about 10:00 a.m.  on Wednesday, 9 January  to receive payment for the January lunch on 16th should you wish to join her.

For anyone who expressed interest  in  “The Great Gatsby” I’m afraid all matinees were sold out

 “The  Country Girls” by Edna O’Brien is on at the Abbey in Dublin during March  I know it seems a long way off, but tickets are already going fast so if interested I would have to buy soon. The  matinee at 2.30 p.m. on Saturday, 23rd March has fairly good availability and is not a walking day for many of us who ramble. Seats are 23 euro,   probably £23  when fees taken into account. Let me know if you would like to have a ticket. Will buy mid January. Don’t be afraid to come on your own,  although some people like to do their own thing, there is always a group travelling and lunching together (and possibly  shopping!)

Ceramic flax flowers project at the F. E. McWilliams Gallery

The F. E. McWilliams gallery in Banbridge has organised pottery workshops at Mount Ida pottery in which some members of the Armagh U3A have taken part.

The project involved making lots of flax flowers in ceramic which will be installed in the gallery garden for their 10th anniversary. The “Weeping Poppies” from London were the inspiration for this idea.

You will be able to see the results of their work and that of the other participating groups in the gallery gardens at the F. E. McWilliams gallery in Banbridge from 22nd March 2018.
