Howth Trip

Unfortunately our trip to Howth has to be cancelled again due to the poor conditions of the walk route we are planning on doing.
We will make a decision over the next couple of weeks whether to reschedule the trip for a later date or cancel it completely. If it has to be cancelled we will return the €3 to you.
I know it is very disappointing but we have to put the children's safety first. We will keep you all informed on any updates.

Thank you for your understanding :)
